Sébastien Tellier x Floating Points

London’s own Floating Points adds his lofty/jazz style to Tellier’s epic tune. I just recently discovered Floating Points after hearing his tune “Love Me Like This” on one of Joy Orbison’s mixes. Subtly is where this electronic scene is going and Floating Points and Joy Orbison are right on par with that.

I have been listening to this tune on constant repeat for the past two weeks, light n’ jazzy yet so simple and to the point 🙂

Check out this interview in Corduroy Magazine with Boys Noize here where he discusses the current state of affairs in the electronic/music world. Some wise words for all us music lovers and bloggers trying to live in this crazy blogosphere. “Why do we blog?” Let’s get through this blogsistential crisis together.

“We’ve gone the loudest and we’ve gone the most minimal. Everything’s been done, and it’s just important now to find the best of it and put it together again. I was always trying to not go with what is cool right now. And it’s getting harder and harder because the music is not happening in DJ and record shops only. Everyone knows the music. It’s a different time now.” – Boys Noize

If you blog it, they will come…

Allure is what this French electronic music scene now, a very musical and subtle sound that I feel Breakbot will be leading in the near future. Allure has this 70s funky musical sensibility by way of Steely Dan/Hall & Oates/Boz Scaggs (Oh so smooth) with that disco early French touch vibe. Also Allure is definitely channeling that Serge Gainsbourg classiness. I will be watching out for this young gentlemen.

Allure – Dandy

Asian Dan Interview: Housse de Racket

Victor & Pierre of Housse de Racket were kind enough to answer a few questions of mine to shed some light on the epic pop rock that they create. Find out how they are connected to Air, Phoenix, Gonzales & Sebastien Tellier. Great guys and hope to see them on American soil sometime soon.

Asian Dan Interview: Housse de Racket

1. Who is Housse de Racket? How would you describe your music?

We’re two guys who grew up in suburb of Paris, city of lights. We met when were teenagers at music school. Victor was wearing a Pearl Jam tee shirt and Pierre loved it.

We play stadium music in very small rooms.

2. What are your influences, musical or otherwise?

We love black music especially Stevie Wonder, Prince and (of course) Michael Jackson… but we cannot sing like them so we play very loud with huge distorsion on the guitar and a double kick drum.

3. The French Music scene is at quite a peak now, where do you see it going and are you guys going along for the ride?

We started playing music when Daft Punk, Air or even Phoenix started to raise. We considered them as (hidden) older brothers… So, it has always been part of our vision of the french music.
Now, Justice, Yelle, The Teenagers, Soko prove that something still happens in France.

We sing in french so we’re different from these bands. The past few months we realize that it’s not a problem anymore… We recently signed with a big english booking agency (Primary Talent) and we plan to play worldwide !
