Sebastien Tellier – Cochon Ville (The Magician Remix)

Prosterne toi!

Danse! Rêve!
Come to us, I could be good
Come to usEnjoy the blue
So, be with us and feel the sound
Come to usUp off the ground
So, be with us I could be yours
Come to us, followers’ fool
So, be with us
So, baby, your money is following
An eternal blue
Danse! Rêve!”

Calling all the neo-disco fans out there and those who have yet to experience it, The Magician has remixed Sebastien Tellier’s mesmerizing call to dance. Turn this track all the way up. You’ll want to feel the drum kick and bass line pulse through your body. There isn’t anything quite like a solid dance track on a Saturday to push you into the night. It’s like having a cup of coffee in the afternoon only the jitters aren’t from the caffeine, they’re your body reacting to the sounds bumping through your ears. And what sounds The Magician has given unto us. Tellier’s original already had a vibe that hypnotized you and set you off, but The Magician amps the disco up another notch. He takes the lyric, “Feel the sound” and immerses us within it. The cult-like chants get inside your brain and seep into your blood stream until the final concluding call and eventual fall into the blue. Why not give yourself over to the sounds, you’re already here – take it one step further.

Sebastien Tellier – Cochon Ville (The Magician Remix)



So I had an iTunes nightmare Friday night which ended up in me losing all my playlist, client work and DJ selections. Everything I do is based on my organization so the magnitude of this fail is so ridiculous that I’ve found it hard to even have an emotion about it. Instead I’ve been up for the last 48 hours re-doing all the work due in the next few days and pretty much rebuilding my work life. I haven’t had much time to think about it because the consequences of not bouncing back immediately don’t allow it but I’m realizing that this is how all problems should be dealt with – objectively. I could sit here, cry about it, look up to the sky and ask why me or I could void the unnecessary emotions and immediately get fixing the problem. I don’t know if it’s experience kicking in or what but I’m digging this new reaction, it feels kinda like that picture up there – blank.

You ever see Roger Federer lose a point? You ever see him win one? The reaction or lack thereof is pretty much streamlined no matter the outcome. I was always fascinated by that nuance and now I think I’ve really starting to understand it. Win or lose a point, 40-love or love-40, the ONLY objective is to win the next one. When you think about it that way it’s hard to justify worrying about some things.

Anyways, I should be working right now but I couldn’t leave you guys hanging for another day so I had to take a break. I’ve been listening to nothing but world music for a hotel chain in China but this morning on my way to poison my body with more coffee I was playing the latest playlist from the crew and it fit the mood perfectly so I thought to share, enjoy…

Sebastien Tellier – Look

G.O.V. has a controversial taboo-shattering song called Seventeen in which he talks about a risqué relationship he had with a young lolita and the awkwardness it caused in his life. He recently performed that song at a showcase all I could do is laugh to myself when I saw the shock in peoples faces when he sung the chorus…

And baby I do promise 52 weeks it’s me and you as co-co pilots chasing the galaxy.
We’re so environmental smokin’ the finest green,
I shouldn’t be around you, you’re only Seventeen.”

I thought that was controversial until I found out that Serge Gainsbourg did an entire concept album in 1971 called Histoire de Melody Nelson about an affair he had with a lolita-esque female, I love it I mean that’s messed up man! Sex sells because it’s a beautiful thing and quite simply we’re all horny bastards. However, it’s rare to have sexually themed music that also offers high levels of sophistication and artistic quality. Histoire de Melody Nelson is that rare find, I highly recommend it.  That brings me to the modern incarnation of Serge, Sebastien Tellier and his bachelor pad classic Sexuality. His record label recently released a video for Look which is pretty much a close up of a girls tooshie for approximately 4 minutes, nothing wrong with that. I like this guy Tellier, I like the way he thinks…

“In my own sexual fantasies I always think about women in sportswear. I like women in sports pants and prefer peeling them off women to lifting up their skirts.”

If you’re a guy or girl in a relationship reading this take notes, if you have a fantasy stop holding it in your head and do it. A lot of people in relationships and separate fantasy from reality and then wonder why things get boring.

Ni$&as sour, they put too much flour in they coke and got the nerve to wonder why they broke.” – Nas (The Set Up, 1996)

Missy “Misdemeanor” Elliot wrote a song in 2000 with a very profound message, one many people over looked because of it’s misleading simplicity. It is a message that will enhance your sexual adventures tenfold and inspire you to make your fantasies a reality and in turn live a happier and more fulfilling sex life, that message is… Get Your Freak On, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Janvier

I haven’t posted anything in the New Year for two reasons, one I haven’t found a song worthy of your time and more importantly the 1st of the month is reserved for Steph Lund’s hit mixtape Le Miel du Mois and that’s how I wanted to set it off. Unfortunately the New Year means an even busier schedual for me so I can’t sit here and talk this one up as much as I’d like to but as usual Steph has given us a new mixtape with a unique flavor and vision, here are some words from the mixtape queen herself, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois: Janvier:
2010. May the year be: “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” – Daft Punk. May we dance harder, love better, play faster, and live stronger. And if we do make mistakes in 2010, which we will, may they make the next step of our lives brighter and better for having made that mistake. Long live disco. Long live the dancefloor. Long live the queen. Long live the generation that is us. Happy New Year and welcome to 2010.”

Le Miel du Mois by Steph Lund: Decembre

That’s right fool, it’s December 1st and that means a new version of your favorite mixtape maker’s favorite mixtape: Steph Lund’s Le Miel du Mois: Decembre edition. I haven’t told Steph yet but she’s outdone herself yet again. There are so many different spices, seasonings and flavors in this that I think Raekwon is going to have to share the Chef nickname with someone from the new generation, enjoy.

Le Miel du Mois: Decembre

Le Miel du Mois: Decembre features some of my favorite artists, some I have loved a long time (Bloc Party, Sebastien Tellier, Phoenix) and some new favorites (Telepathe, Delorean, Neon Indian). Four artists featured are French, in anticipation for my trip to Paris this month, enjoy and ecoutez: Charlotte Gainsbourg, Sebastien Tellier, Phoenix and Soko. Soko is a French model/actress. I included her song “I’ll Kill Her” which first debuted in 2007, but came back in my life recently when listening to DJ AM’s “Elton John Part 3,” I can’t stop listening to it and wanted to include it on this month’s mix, because, well the lyrics are just kind of amazing: s’amuser.”

The Twelfth Hour

The Twelves

Will someone please explain to me the phenomenon that is time while at work? Doesn’t it feel like right before you get to work time is flying and you can’t move fast enough but the second you sit down it’s like you go into some alternate world and it takes an hour for 5 minutes to pass. Work sucks huh? You know what, I really like the concept of that new Bruce Willis movie. We should have robots that represent us at work while we do important things like thinking of more ways to use robots and not do anything. That probably won’t happen today so I’ve got a little something to help you day dream and procrastinate more than you already do…

The Twelves released a new 60 minute mixtape two days ago and I think my friend Ben’s facebook message describes it best: “new 12s mixtape = predictable amazingness.”  This is the followup to their previous mixtape Episode II, which I never got around to posting but will in the next week or so.  I’ve been listening to this all morning and it rocks, there’s really nothing else to say.  These guys just get it when it comes to song selection and production. The transitions from song to song are seamless, the mash-ups and remixes are top notch and the overall flow and feel is energetic and entertaining all throughout.  it’s quite good.

Sébastien Tellier – Roche (Breakbot Remix)

Sébastien Tellier is the man. Growing up an entertainer and being lucky to live a certain life due to my chosen career makes it hard for me to relate to a lot of guys my age.  Too many aren’t as refined and creative as I think men should be but Mr. Tellier, I like the way this dude operates.

In my own sexual fantasies I always think about women in sportswear. I like women in sports pants and prefer peeling them off women to lifting up their skirts.”

Ahh those black leotards, thank you Edie Sedgwick. I’ll also use this moment to thank a very select few beautiful girls for making that fantasy a reality for me time and time again – you are appreciated.  I have a vivid imagination and could go on with the fantasy thing for days but for the sake of this music blog I’ll talk about the awesome remix of Roche by French remixer/producer Breakbot.

Roche is from Tellier’s third studio album, Sexuality, which was produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (Daft Punk).

It’s very electronic and like intellectual R&B, although not in the same way that Beyoncé or Justin Timberlake are R&B.” Tellier also stated “I wanted to make music that would sexually excite people in an Italian or Latin sense of sexual music; the big seducer with the broken heart… I tried to keep vulgarity away from sex and my music.”

Like I said, I like the way this dude operates. Breakbot is signed to French electronic music label Ed Banger and has been known for his own productions as well as remixes for artist like Royksopp, Justice, Pnau and countless others. This remix is fantastic, from a production standpoint it accomplishes what most songs dream of by being simple yet engaging and entertaining. From an experience standpoint, I’m going to a fashion party tomorrow and I couldn’t think of a better soundtrack for such events, Space Age Bachelor Pad Music at it’s best, enjoy.

Sébastien Tellier – Roche (Breakbot Remix)


Sebastien Tellier – Roche

This video for “Roche” off of Tellier’s album Sexuality dropped recently and it is half lo-fi pop Côte D’Azur beach vacation glamour and half Jodorowsky inspired acid trip. This album was produced by Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo of Daft Punk, and I think a lot of people slept on it, so here for your listening pleasure is the track that inspired the above video. I for one am already breaking out the shades and the champagne picnic set.

Je sens la chaleur de l’été…
