LUMIERE NOIRE : a stroboscopic collection assembled by Chloe on Kill the DJ.
LUMIERE NOIRE is Chloe's experimental laboratory; a dark room to which she has the only key. The results are tracks that light up the dance floor, with electronic epics and psychedelic adventures. She features both emerging artists and old friends with well-established reputations. Different fragments of Chloe united in a fascinating collage hosted on the black and white imprint.
CHLOE : "I want to share and to let people discover techno tracks with psychedelic, vintage or krautrock vapors. I will put out a few of the unreleased tracks by established artists and newcomers, that I usually play in my dj sets. Lumière noire literally means 'blacklight'. The name reveals what I'm going for: I want to be in the shadows until I disappear but the music glows.
The first black light (LUMIERE NOIRE) will be shone on IL EST VILAINE. The Parisian duo composed of Simon Says, a longtime friend from DIALECT RECORDINGS, and Florent aka Dorian Grey, a up-and-coming it-boy who focuses on hard techno and rave parties (he's a former member of the hedonistic Parisian nightlife collective Washin Mashin.) The duo's first collaboration "SCANDAL EP" (a sweaty disco vibe stained with leather-biker oil) came out in March 2014 and was a big success. I played all sides of this EP in clubs all over the world, so it was easy for me to trust them blindly (in the dark again), giving them the the reins of this first release on LUMIERE NOIRE. I was not disappointed. The villains offered me four haunting and unstoppable tracks that put us in the leather boots of a beat-up James Dean crawling out of a back-room and attempting to conquer the Wild West. Beau programme, isn't it?"
1 - SURF RIDER: An epic acid track set in the Mexican desert ... recently released, but already a classic (acclaimed by the Pachanga Boys and the duet Marvin & Guy)
2 - LIES : Live guitar riffs and a voyage into the cosmos: the unlikely pileup of Sexual Harrassment (I need a freak) and Eddie Cochran's guitar
3 - PEYOTL: still rock & roll and acid: "la danse des mots" by Mondino played live in a phat techno club.
