Premiere: Alain Gertrand – Cassette Sale [CDP REC]
Throughout the EP Cassette Sale, Alain Gertrand takes off his mask and unveils a super groovy house with a strong identity.
Le Roi et l’Oiseau, as a snappy lead-in, reminds us of Chicago and Detroit, as much as the next tracks.
With Anna Lise, sounds are more organic and airy than in the first track but still as rousing.
The third track, Cassette Sale, includes a vocal sung by Alain Gertrand in French accompanying a very well balanced mix of airy pads and synthesizers and round elements.
The last track, Crâne de Poule’s interpretation of Cassette Sale, is a breakbeat rhythm track including shades of funk and 90’s hip hop.
