Here’s the new single, and video, from Pégase. Dreaming Legend is a lush Indie-electro tracks with more than a few musical nods to Shoegaze and Post-Punk. It’s gets a little Chillwavey in places too, it’s a beautiful piece of music though.
Directed by Paul Jeunet & Alain Goillon, the video pairs up the track with some wistful, nostalgic, visuals.
Parisian ElectroPop chanteuse Birkii’s Holy War single was released this week. We took a look at the original and Reflex’s storming reMix last week, now the EP is out we can check out some of the accompanying mixes. It’s quite an eclectic line up of quirky ElectroPop reMixes that makes for an interesting package.
Pégase is up first with a wonderful mixture of ‘80’s sounds and a ‘50’s vibe, it’s really like nothing you’ve heard before but works really well, especially with a track like this. On the surface it’s quite typical of French ElectroPop, slightly left field with a Indie sensibility, but it;s got the almost Rockabilly swing to it that gives it a unique flavour. Pol Rax delivers a pulsating retro synth mix that folds in elements of Italo and SynthWave into it’s spikey ElectroPop, very ‘80’s synths on this one. Also brining a retro feel to their mix is Zemaria. This Brazilian producer turns in a tune with a sweet ‘80’s DiscoPop style. With a nice amount of groove and a big cosmic chorus Zemaria’s mix is kind enough to include some vocoding for us. Thanks.

Birkii’s Holy War is is out now and also features an excellent mixes from Polocorp and Equateur.
We haven’t written about Pégase since way back in 2009! Pégase is, of course, the side project of Raphaël, the lead singer of the utterly amazing Minitel Rose. Both of which we have heard far to little from in recent years. Better later than never though, as Pégase releases his début (really?) EP.
Here’s the video for ‘The Bad Side Of Love’ the lead track on the ‘Without Reasons’ EP, directed by Nicolas Davenel. The EP contains reMixes from Giraffage, Les Et Les Garcons, Ruckazoid & Equateur and is a welcome return from one of the founding fathers of Dreamwave.
Pégase, side project of Raphaël (the lead singer of Minitel Rose), have dropped a couple of new demos.
As with everything that comes out of the Valerie collective this is quality retro Electro stuff. More upbeat than Pégase’s earlier, spaced-out, tunes these two are full-on ElectroPop goodness. ‘Wherever You Are’ is verging on Electro-Rock.
