(Le Taxi Prod)
Electro bass meets jazzy brass in the perfect, timeless blend, executed with skill and panache.
In the collaborative venture that is Limousine, Laurent Bardainne (Poni Hoax), David Aknin (Bitchee Bitchee Ya Ya Ya, Jamaica), Maxime Delpierre (Paris, Viva & The Diva) and Frédéric Soulard (Maestro) come together to create a sensual, introspective post-jazz hybrid. This is undoubtedly why they were chosen by the French film-makers’ group Le Broadcast Club chose Limousine to provide the soundtrack for their first short, which was released in 2009 under the auspices of film production company Autour de Minuit. The film, like the track, was called Lila, and it went on to achieve distinction in the LABO competition at the Clermont-Ferrand International Short Film Festival (jury prize, Prix Télérama), at the Concorto Film Festival in Pontenure, Italy and at the 35th Annual César Awards ceremony in 2010.
