London’s Nude Disco is back with another of his storming reMixes. This one’s truly on point with Vern’s take on Sébastien Tellier’s classic Kilometre. This is one track you all will know, taken from the Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo produced album Sexuality it was a 2008/09 staple. Check out Nude Disco bringing up to 2015 speed and ready for a new dancefloor.
Nude Disc keeps things steady with this rock solid reMix. Kicking off with a bubbling arpeggio and a cracking electro snare, Vern soon introduces the original’s rich synths and a squelchy lead into the mix as the tune dips and bobs through the track. After a warm breakdown, Nude Disco brings it back hard with an irresistible and energetic synthetic finale.
Well this is a nice surprise. So soon after last years My God Is Blue album, French ElectroPop wizard Sébastien Tellier returns with news of a forthcoming new album, Confection, and it’s lead single, L’Amour Naissant. The soundtrack to an imaginary film. Check out the video.
Jean-Baptiste Mondino directed the clip, which stars starring Anna Mouglalis and Clément Chabernaud, is suitably stylish and cinematic.
Sébastien Tellier’s Confection is released 14th October.
So, as we heave shut the storm door against the lashing out inbox will undoubtedly get from the flood of reMixes of Sébastien Tellier’s Russian Attractions, we’re pretty sure this is the last post we’ll do on these mixes. We’ll probably do a round-up of the best toward the end of the reMix competition, but before that there is just time to sneak in a look at French SynthWave merchant Tommy’s excellent, atmospheric, mix of the track.
Tommy outdoes himself with this one, putting himself way up in the competition rankings. His reMix flows along with a subtle brilliance. With a space age 80’s moody, this mid-paced mix envelopes itself in swirls of warm, thick retro synth sounds and sparking lead lines that perfectly compliment Tellier’s romantic croon. Tommy grasp on brining his SynthWave sound to a Pop song is flawless, with harmonious verses that soar into the lush chords of the chorus with the confidence of the best ElectroPop. Stunning work from Tommy.
Who want’s even more from Pilotpriest? Well, of course you do, you’d be insane not to. Well you’re in luck, in the same week that saw him dropping his new tune, Cosmosis, the Torontonian unleashes his reMix of the mighty Sébastien Tellier’s new single Russian Attractions.
As you know, we normally shudder at the thought of whatever latest reMix competition is running, and we fully expect our Inbox to be flooded, in the coming weeks, with mediocre Russian Attractions reMixes, but hopefully Mt. Tellier’s thoughtful ElectroPop will see a different class of reMix talent than the usual poo Electro-House cries for attention. To be honest though, they all might as well just stop now. Pilotpriest’s reMix is going to be very hard, if not impossible to beat. He’s set the bar so high you can just about make it out in the Hubble Deep Field image. Pilotpriest’s trademark piercing vintage synths and steady, dramatic beats are the perfect accompaniment for Sébastian Tellier’s bombastic, otherwordly presence. Seriously, a match made in heaven. This reMix is nothing short of majestic. A synthesizer opera, full of power and emotion.
Here’s the video for Sébastien Tellier’s new single Russian Attractions, taken from his awesome new album My God Is Blue.
The clip was directed by Meredith Danluck and produced by Vice. Here’s what they say about the clip: “We took the idea of falling in love with a stranger, and considered the fact that love itself is a stranger. There’s a reason we use the word "fall" when referring to love. Because when its pull becomes too strong to resist, you lose your balance and what happens next is an unknown beyond our control. Although scary, the unknown is also undeniable attractive.”. I don’t know about all that, but it look fancy!
‘Cochon Ville’ is the first single taken from Sébastien Tellier‘s new album ‘My God Is Blue’ available now via Record Makers.
French DiscoPop duo of the moment Jupiter made themselves a little DJ friendly version of fellow Frenchman Sébastien Tellier’s awesome current single ‘Cochon Ville’ for their last mixtape. Now they have released it, for free, in it’s entirety.
Jupiter’s version is a slick rolling Disco edit of the track. Ripe for the dancefloor Jupiter highlight that undulating Disco bassline. Stripping back the tune to it’s most basic Disco elements and the drawing them out over five minutes. With a particularly tension inducing build over the first half of the track until it drops you right into the heart of the song, this is definitely the mix to drop in the middle of the night.
I suppose I had better mention that Sébastien Tellier’s new video for the awesome ‘Cochon Ville’ is pretty NSFW. I don’t usually mention that as I figure we’re all adults here and the idea of getting people into trouble at work amuses me. I mention it now though, as I don;t really want to get anyone fired. So, basically, boobs and cock. You have been warned.
Alexandre Courtes, who recently did Justice’s ‘On ‘N’ On’ clip, directs this Tellier worshipping orgy of stuff, and orgying. With Tellier as blue god overseeing his Disco minions and whipping the up into a state of ecstasy, the video is sure to draw some attention. Come for the clip, stay for the ace tunes.

Next month sees French ElectroPop genius Sébastien Tellier finally release his long awaited (well, around here definitely) new single ‘Cochon Ville’, after the brief welcome back of ‘Pépito Bleu’ it’s a funk return to form that leaves us excited for his forthcoming album, ‘My God Is Blue’.
Produced by Ed Banger’s Mr. Flash, the track is smooth slice of French DiscoPop that’s backed by some awesome reMixes. The Magician us front and centre with a track that harkens back to the days of Pet Shop Boys at the Disco. Shifting the mood of the tune into one of late night ‘80’s dancefloors The Magician takes you on a synthesized journey through rain soaked back alleys and seedy bars. Hey Champ! take on the track is pure ‘80’s ElectroPop Funk with hints of Axel F while Dimitri From Paris’ Acid soaked Disco is a strange, but pleasing collision between burbling 303’s and ‘70’s Moroder.

After the atmospheric majesty of the first single ‘Pépito Bleu’, ‘Cochon Ville’ sees Sébastien getting some French Electro Funk back into his ElectroPop. Produced by produced by Ed Banger’s Mr. Flash the track is some sweet synthesizer Disco you can’t help but move to made all the more smooth by Tellier’s crooning. Vintage Disco at it’s finest.
