Didn't know anything about Mr. Badarou beforehand but last night i saw vesuvio solo (who i learned took their name from one of his songs) open for this last night and he totally killed it. I've been listening to the album 'Echoes' all day; it's French new-age synth stuff, very 'proto-vaporwave', kinda african-influenced in parts, some of it is just dinky soundscapes that sound like they would soundtrack some MS-DOS rpg... but at it's best it's fantastic stuff. he said something about how he's able to perform his old material live for the first time in a while because some French society digitally recreated the synths he used to record the album in the 80's. anyone know anything about him?

Discovered Echoes thanks to this thread a couple of years ago. A lovely find!

His solo on Grace Jones' 'Walking in the Rain' (especially the extended version) is one of my favourite things.

Island Records 60th this year, I pitched an idea to UMG for a compilation series a while back of classic & obscure mostly 80’s cuts & dubs from their catalogue (many not available digitally) they said no, so here’s 322mins of incredible music, enjoy. https://t.co/I9eJeGYZ3R

I chose my eyeglasses several years ago to match the ones he wore back in the day:

I do a radio show! I'll play all the tracks in the exact order, same mix style, will be up in a few days, they can do nothing about it, and artists will get royalties too ;-)

aw rats! i only managed to listen to the first hour and was going to listen to the rest tonight, but i did jot down a tracklist of what i heard:

- Wally Badarou - Mambo
- Super classic instrumental that i really should know but i forgot
- Grace Jones - My jamaican guy dub
- Cat Stevens - Was dog a doughnut? disco mix
- King Sunny Ade - something off Aura?
- Mon Dino - La Danse Des Mots (Pt. 2)
- Malcolm McLaren - D'Ya Like Scratchin'?
- Trouble Funk - It's In The Mix (Don't Touch That Stereo)
- really cool one that goes "stop killing, stop shooting, stop burning, stop looting!", followed by sheep noises - anyone know this?
- Gwen Guthrie - Peanut Butter (larry levan mix iirc)
- Nuance Featuring Vikki Love ‎– Loveride
- The Earons ‎– Land Of Hunger

Got to chat with him for a bit after his show Thursday at Dekmantel Festival. A humble synth and production god. We ended up talking about his production on Alain Chamfort's "Amour, Année Zéro". When I asked if Gainsbourg got involved in the songwriting process other than providing lyrics: "No, just lyrics. (pause. smile) Thank goodness!" :)

Ah this turns out to have been 'Give Sheep A Chance' by Raw Sex, Pure Energy btw, ‎which i think was a New Age Steppers related project w/ Neneh
