is the band project by French producer and composer Romain Turzi. He started to release music in 2006 on Air's Record Makers imprint. Ever since he is regarded as one of the leading forces in French psyched electronica and the new edition of Krautrock. He also has a solo side-project called T.E.E. (Turzi Electronique Expérience).
This is the typical French teenage rebel music. All the guys with Doc Martens were listenng to this. I still play their tunes when I DJ and want to get some sort of hiphop feeling with a punk attitude across.
On their recent «Screamadelica» tour. Probably not the best concert I ever been to. But the last real good one.
I wanted to say «MCMXCI» by Uncanny, but my wife just said she doesnt like it. It's really cheap. So I say the soundtrack to «Le Grande Bleu».
Well I heard a lot of radio my parents were listening to. And tape cassettes. But this one was probably the first real record I heard.
It's a twenty minutes piece with a very strange beat and these harpischords in it. It kinda makes you sick when listening to it. I don't really mind because I will be already dead and there will only be beautiful women at my funeral.
You have to look for the video of this on youtube. It's an amazing live performance, and the play with total concentration, still they are robots. It's a proof that you can play electronic music live.
Any kind of New Beat music. It shows how romantic electronic music can be. Because there are only machines, but they are operated by humans. I'm not a good musican or a engineer, I'm just the controller and can tell you how the music should sound I want to produce. Eventhough I work a lot with real instruments I think music that's made only with computers and machines is very human. It makes things so logic, since everything comes from harmonies.
Off the «Tour De France» soundtracks.
It's the song on a B-Side of a typical french varieté record («Qui C'Est Celui-Là?»). There's only just one chord playing for over 5 minutes. And Vassiliu is telling the story of a guy alone in the streets of Paris during night time looking for a girl to spend the night. It's very romantic but then it's also depressing at the same time. It captures perfectly the vibe of Paris at night.
Right now I'm really on this Belgium New Beat act. They also got this track called «Cocaine» which is also really good. Both tracks are around 95 bpm, but they still make you want to dance.
I still love that album.
Riley is one of the pioneering composres of minimalistic Classical music. This is from 1975 and has these sharp pieces of music perfectly fitted together. For me it's a masterpiece! Everyone should listen to this soundtrack once. Education!
It has this big noise feedback on it. I wish I could do that once.
