Eleven tracks of today’s music, a sort of snapshot of a certain vision ofelectronic music, terribly ambitious, yet perfectly accomplished and mastered.A few dance floor tracks with the aim to bring the listener to a sort ofmelancholic reverie, to insert a bit of bittersweet reflection beyond theoriginal bang-bang-bang.

The beautiful “Code 1026”, “Europa”, or “Les Violons Ivres” are not about tocease pleasing dance floor ecstatic around the world.

Peter Murphy, mythical singer of the cult band Bauhaus, plays his David Bowiebetter than anyone to serve the vicious pop song Edenbridge.

Sclade, a young dandy from Lyon, put his vocals for the tracks “Baboul HairCutting” - sort of destroyed and chaotic yet resolutely contemporary r’n’b -and the highly vaporous Your Inner Kiss a poetic electro/pop bravery.

The divine and sexy Princess Superstar for a Lips On Fire with its furiousbreak beats, dirty text and moist song. And the superbly sensuous “MillionMiles”, which leans on the timeless voice of Neneh Cherry at the peak of herart, perpetuating the tradition of lyrical velvet resting on humming ultrabasses.

Remains three titles evoking a personality that is more complex than it seemsat first sight, and, that is predominantly emblematic of his constant quest formodernity.

Like A Bull is a devastating deflagration where the obscure facet of thecurrent techno, which links volleys of electro and sheets of old school,condensed by twenty years of underground. On Wrong Line Agoria dares the murmurof a text in French, a demanding love song that rips the heart on a carpet ofelectronica to cry for. The magnificent Cécile is an emphatic electronicinstrumental piece that calls upon the ghosts of a Pink Floyd; even still, avery moving tribute to the greatness of a genre that is still misunderstood –techno - as a revelatory of emotions buried deep within a soul that is – Iswear – the essence of an innocent adolescent, for this atypical and deeplyhuman artist.

There’s still one question tough….Why “The Green Armchair” ?
