Following on from 2013's acclaimed La Beat Tape, the Parisian duo Souleance return for 2019 with French Cassette, released by First Word Records, and composed by 27 tracks that play like they were part of each other, part of a superior piece of musical knowledge and groove. The mixtape, is in fact, a true labour of love, a French voyage through time and genres.
French Cassette is comprised of an array of noises from various French composers: from boogie, to jazz, to sound libraries, to chansons. Everything sounds very cinematic - or should we say ‘cinematique’ - and each track is purposefully named after various French clichés, characteristics, phrases and places. Available in vinyl and cassette, of course, French Cassette is best enjoyed as a whole. Pour la nuite.
