Disco Love Affair

Hercule et son affaire nous fera danser demain au piquenique énectronique.
Voici pour vous une vidéo, et des pièces d'anthologie qui ont probablement, selon Pitchfork Media inspiré la création du disque de Hercules & Love Affair.

"Butler got his start writing music for art projects in college-- "like a remake of Gino Soccio's 'Runaway' done in the style of Kraftwerk."

Gino Soccio - The Runaway
extrait de l'album S-Beat, 1980

Kraftwerk - The Model
extrait de l'album The Man Machine, 1978

"the record owes a debt to the dance-music of the 1970s and 80s, from Gamble & Huff-style strings to the camp sensibilities of Sylvester or Patrick Cowley."

MFSB - Dance With Me Tonight
extrait de l'album The Gamble & Huff Orchestra, 1978

Sylvester - Do You Wanna Funk
extrait de l'album Do You Wanna Funk, 1982

Paul Parker - Right On Target
prod. Patrick Cowley, [7"], 1982
aussi Paul Parker The Collection, 1992

"Butler has clearly studied Arthur Russell: His dancefloor jams have the same energy that drives uptempo Russell numbers like "Go Bang" and "Is It All Over My Face?", and his arrangements-- as when he nestles Kim Ann Foxman's voice in a bed of spongy keys and bass on "Athene", like an Easter egg in plastic grass-- recall Russell's facility for space and timbre."

Dinosaur L - Go Bang [Francois Kervorkian Mix]
Prod. Arthur Russell & Will Socolov, Go Bang #5 / Clean On Your Bean #1 [12"], 1982
aussi The World Of Arthur Russell, 2004
