donovan is a french parisian duo consisting of david saïd and nicolas nekmouche, formed in 2007. influenced by black music, french touch and techno as much as contemporary artists, donovan created an original sound, melodic and also very club, with tracks like >breakin, released on work it baby, a track featuring jessica rizzo released on gigolo records etc. so combining their respective influences, they obtain tracks full of energy and depth. the band hits the bulls eye and remixes requests start to pour in. among them two tracks of sebastien tellier for record makers, teenage bad girl, arnaud rebotini and several rock bands. dont pass on this one !

behind this german-sounding pseudonym hides a lyrical, subtle and ambitious techno. mondkopf reveals on this ep his most federative facet with a tracklist in which immediacy never sacrifices imagination. this combination of a techno basis, trancy hooks and electronica sound processing make these nuits sauvages (wild nights) ambivalent, conquering and melancholy. la dame en bleu, his major piece, is already an underground hymn. les oiseaux de balthazar, mixes vocal pads, bells and birdcalls in a fantasy techno universe on a dynamic tempo. the result, once again, sounds absolutely unique. nuit sauvage softens the layers to emphasis on crunchy riffs and strong kicks, to finally come back to an epic dimension, always around in mondkopfs songs. remix side, matzak got hold of the very mental christmas, keeping its electro spirit.
after his album with black strobe released in 2007, arnaud rebotini comes back with a new ep and a 100 percent electronic live. arnaud hopes for entering in a new approach in which live is the beginning of the project’,s conception. the idea is to build a dancefloor set without using laptop or external sequencer but around emblematic machines (tr 909, tr 808, sh 101, juno 60, korg monopoly). this producer wants to let us share his studio experience in live. “,music components”, is an album of romantic and timeless techno where rebotini goes back to hot and groovy sounds of his first productions

john lord fonda is somehow a signore of electronic music in france, a free bpm hero. a simple and classy producer who only communicates through music.2012 is a new beginning for our antisocial nerd, with an ep and overall his album supersonique coming out now in france and may worldwide. he started re-producing track in 2005 delivering debaser, his previous album that sold more than 10 000 copies, having some really great feedbacks from so many medias worldwide.between june 2009 and october 2010, he got back in studio improving his production skills, getting the right way of producing for the current market, tracking all his weak point to get better, bigger. from the last years he only kept 2 tracks, brunette tattoo and orchidée, concentrating on brand new tracks and influences for all the rest of the album. he came back on stages in 2009 with composite, a live-set project which enabled him to discover upcoming artists and to assimilate all the new techniques.changing several time of tempo, supersonique is containing quite a few pearls, some efficient like brunette tattoo, you originate and orchidé. but the album also include some fine and melodic tracks like “emiliana” or toyboxes (which goes aphex twin electronica style). some ghosts from the classical music also haunt the album such as mozart, getting out (under acid) in whats going on, verdi facing some syncopated drums on sound of a melody or vivaldi on brunette tattoo. a full orchestra seems to drop a tear on orchidée.john lord fonda is a dance music warrior, an electro-tech seigneur, a future leader of free french techno. this second album has a huge class, a kind of urgency, full of simplicity, and goes straight to the point.
fancy is back... get ready to the second round!conquer the worlds ! this was fancy shameless ambition when their first album >kings of the worlds< came out. they were fortunate enough to share the stage with some of the biggest groups on the planet: the rolling stones @ isle of wight, daft punk in ireland, the police in spain).
the new teenage bad girl album is full of energy and obvious hits such as keep up with you (stardust from the 80 s), the rock-orientated black hole, the electro-break of fight night or the dance-house tonton funk. but there are also the synthetic and melancholic eponymous slow backwash, a minimal discoid ballad like heart zero beating (tangerine dream 2.0) or even the hedonistic and poppy hip-hop tune x-girl, the band’s next single.
