L'Amour Electronique mix 3


Another mix of vintage French pop, eclectic electronics, psychedelic sweetness and synthetic sounds from your trusty L'Amour Electronique DJs (originally recorded live at our soirée on 22 January 2011).

Mix 3 begins with a little lesson in parler en Français, a spooky analogue symphony from Add N to (X) and then a steamy French version of Nancy & Lee's 'Summer Wine'. Onwards with some classic Gainsbourg, a rare Québécois garage cut, Nicoletta's eerie take on 'I Put a Spell on You', and some obscure Turkish Francophone garage. A little 70s segue leads us into more modern electronic territory with the brutalist synth-pop of Electronicat and Sebastien Tellier's epic Sexual Sportswear. Ending with a bittersweet 8-bit ballad from Yazoo and some Dutronc-ian absurdist psychedelia.

Our third mix continues with a mod-dancefloor classic and a tasty bit of boogaloo from Monsieurs Polnareff and Ferrer, some classic Stereolab and a truly sinister slab of analogue-synth abuse from Add N to (X). Next a Dutronc cover from Les Lolitas and one of my favourite Françoise Hardy songs. We also have garage femme pop (Les Princesses), porno go-go music (Gracy et Paje), Frrrrrench R’n’B and Ra-Ra-Ra-Rollergirl, then a swerve into 8-bit and space disco. Then Leonie takes our breath away with her epic, breathy Lilith, leading us into a little French/electronique finale.
