Holiday reverie EP
トゥールーズ出身のカルトバンドHypnoloveの、Mickey Moonlight プロデュースによるアルバム Holiday reverie は、シンセポップナンバーが詰まった夏の新しい定番。
The music of Hypnolove is as eclectic as their instrumentation and sonic palette – a declaration of their devotion to leisure time and relaxation.
Hypnolove are a cult band from Toulouse in South-West France. Their first album, Eurolove, was mixed by Renaud Letang (Gonzales, Feist, Katerine).
In terms of roots, the band are true Europeans – fans of Eurodance, Italian basslines and singers and German and American electronic music. Further influences include classic R&B, along with contemporary artistes like Connan Mockasin.
The past few years have seen them creating stunning remixes for the likes of Sebastien Tellier, Findlay Brown, Go Go Charlton and Siobanh Donaghy, while still finding time to write and record their new album on the Record Makers label. The album was produced by Mickey Moonlight, a mainstay of the Ed Banger label, and the match proved fruitful: Moonlight had an instinctive feel for the backbone of the Hypnolove sound, helping the groups spread their wings still further while adding his own distinctive touches.
The “Holiday Reverie” EP finds the Hypnolove recipe in full effect: synth, bass and afro-tinged guitars and funky percussion blending with shimmering arpeggios and idiosyncratic vocals to create a classic summer hit.
