ELECTRO DELUXE celebrates its 20th anniversary
After 8 albums, a Jazz victory and concerts all over the world, the group invites us to preserve an extremely rare longevity in the musical landscape. Electro Deluxe offers this year a new repertoire drawn from all its albums, from the beginnings to today.
Playing with stylistic borders, « APOLLO » brings us towards great spaces, towards a new musical universe.
As if the 1970's groove met with today's electro and french touch. The unique sound of the group is enriched by the richness of the legendary keyboards such as Juno and the Moog so precious to Eurythmics and Syevie Wonder. In « RIGHT NOW », the mythical rythm box Linndrum from Prince's beginnings meets Roger Troutman's talk-box; in « SLEEPWALKING » Daft Punk's vocoder dialogues with Herbie Hancok's Fender Rhodes.
Without forgetting their fundamentals, the group manages to ally musical mouvements and eras in a new unique and timeless fashion.
After 20 years of existence and concerts worldwide, Electro Deluxe wanted to explore new musical territories while throwing bridges between yesterday's musical production and today's sounds.
It's a real retro-futurist canvas that draws itself by listening to the 14 titles of this new album which oscillates between energetic and melodic ciseled pop.
To accompany them in this beautiful trip, the groups calls on 20SYL (C2C, Hocus Pocus). An inspired and perfectionnist producer, he has carefully polished each title by injecting in Electro Deluxe's core a raw emotion and sound.
Without ever losing the group's DNA, implacable rythms, precise brass instruments and a unique voice, Electro Deluxe takes on a journey through time. The group gives us with a doubt their most complete music to date.
By listening to « APOLLO », we navigate through heritage and modernity, between earthly feels of a familiar groove and celestial inspiration with synthetic sounds to paint a new picture, like a memory from the future.
