Sébastien Tellier Double Bill

tbc aka Instamatic - Silent Ritournelle (For Fletch) (Depeche Mode vs Sébastien Tellier - DJ Giac Reboot)

Another lost track, this time I didn’t want to seem like I was trying to crash in on the death of Fletch (Andy Fletcher) of Depeche Mode. I remade this 2008 mashup by DJ Giac for the podcast then forgot to post it…it’s been 6 months, I think enough time has passed.

`La Ritournelle is a track that has very deep meaning for me, and I’ve wanted to mash it and Tellier’s work for a long time but nothing worked – seems I did so twice as there are two Sebastian Tellier tracks that have never been posting actually, I found another one which I’m also posting here.

This is the other Sébastien Tellier track I did, around the same time actually. Not sure why I didn’t post it? Maybe it was too similar to my Marvin Gayle mashup which again is around that time.

This is a track from the Narco soundtrack he did – Le long de la rivière tendre which is really good, mixed with Marvin Gaye’s Mercy Mercy Me.

It’s the sister track to my other two ecological tracks – Turquoise Blues For A Dying Planet (The Quiet Joys Of Hexagons) and the video for What Glimpse Of Us – I will be posting the latter shortly.

It’s definitely influenced by one of my favourite mashups of all time -djrozroz’s La Ritournelle de Marvin.

New mashup videos on YouTube

Following the post of the tbc mashup videos to Youtube, here’s two Instamatic videos that are rather more upbeat – well sorta, the next one is more of a tbc track in all but name, but like a lot of recent mashups has not been posted here but has been posted over at Sowndhaus,

Joji vs P!NK What Glimpse Of Us – ostensibly about a empty relationship vs the same but also a cry for justice, becomes a song about the planet and climate change as the animals in the video look at us accusingly and say ‘what about us?’. With COP27 on the way and last night reading a great interview with Bjork and Greta Thunberg it was on my mind.

The allgator eye was the image from the Joji single so was the starting point, but I couldn’t find enough croc clips – so I diversified and it became something else.

More upbeat is this video for Something About The Wikka Cat (Evasions vs Doja Cat vs Daft Punk which is one of my favourite recent tracks, finally successfully making a Daft Punk track that works 100% and mixing in Evasions novelty funk tune, Wikka Wrap which is a fave of mine. Doja Cat was unknown to me until fairly recently, but ‘Say So’ is TOTAL disco so works with the Chic Good Times nods.

And the video? Well it’s just a tropical good time party, where I wish I was rather than damp cold grey England…
