(French) Touch

Sébastien Tellier - Kilometer (A-Trak Remix) by A-Trak

Let's start off with something amazing like this remix. Sebastien Tellier is an amazing obsession I've recently been on about, learnt through my friend Jeff. This all comes from our mutual love for Ed Banger Records.

From these guys comes the amazing following bands:
Krazy Baldhead
DJ Medhi
Busy P
Mr Oizo

And from that, Jeff through many repeated and forgotten attempts on vinyl, finally caught my full attention with Sebastien Tellier and this music video especially:

Tellier's record label is Record Makers...guys who put out AIR, Daft Punk, and Kavinsky as well...but then his album 'Sexuality' is put out by Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo.
And then with the viewing of the amazing Mr Oizo film - 'Steak' - in which Oizo, Sebastien Tellier, and SebAstian collaborate on a super stimulating and interwoven soundtrack more and more is found (BEST SCENE)-- continuing onto 'Drive' 's soundtrack with Kavinsky...and where the whole movie is BASED off of the character of Kavinsky...we just keep weaving on to more awesomeness.
Soon enough, my roommate Joey introduces me to a term. What the French call all of this type of music - French Touch - now that is a beautiful way to describe some of the SICKEST music happening right now!

Here is the new one by Sebastien Tellier --
