colette’s new compilation has arrived (eshop). Our team of experts, Michel Gaubert and Marie Branellec take us in a disco dreamlike trip, between disco of Hercules and Love Affair, remastering of refrigerating and aphrodisiac italo disco by today’s sensational Chromatics and Glass Candy, bewitched and discoïde theme by Body Double (Brian de Palma), a symphony by Pulp, Wooden Shjips’ psychedelic rock, space Pianos by Ferrante and Teicher, the Camden castle of Brute Chorus, or Rufus Wainwright’s folk, totally mesmerised by electro magicians Supermayer.
Producer Midnight Mike, whose talent has been revealed through his work with Japanese Zongamin, catches more and more the attention of electro addicts. He now takes a new name, aka Mickey Moonlight to give us a unseen mix, similar to an initiatory soundtrack with a primitive and yet futuristic approach to it. From Baxter to Goldfrapp, Sun Ra to Brian Eno, an experience playing with boundaries and genres.
