Sound Travels to France this week and unlike last week, nothing vintage about it. This is new or at least newer music that I'll be playing all week long on the show and we got it going in fine style today with a mix of pop and hip hop in the mix.
The Limiñanas, who were just at The Cactus Club this spring, made the set with their moody and dark surf sound. As did unknown artists like Abd Al Malik and Suarez; joined by established names in French pop like Rachid Taha and MC Solaar. Miss the set? Here's what I played…
The Limiñanas "Down Underground" The Limiñanas
Suarez "Qu-est ce Que J'aime Ca" L'Indecideur
Abd Al Malik "Gibraltar" Gibraltar
Rachid Taha "Bonjour" Bonjour
MC Solaar "Clic Clic" Magnum 567
