While juggling music production, DJ residencies (France / UK), label management and meticulous blog write-ups for the revered site and vinyl label GET THE CURSE, Clement Meyer honorarily earns himself the title of busiest man in Paris…for electronic music anyway.
In 2007 he teamed up with 5 of his of techno and house loving friends (including past DNODE guest Ed Isar) with “an unconditional love for dirty dance floors and evil records” to form the mix and EP review blog www.getthecurse.com As a natural progression for most music aficionados, the site became label and the dj/writers became producers.
Clement gives us a 60 minute taste of the French underground nightlife with this flawless of mix “dark house and decadent electro” tinged techno and minimal for our 106th installment of DNODE. He has also been kind enough to provide a track listing and selected track break down for all trainspotters out there. Turn on tune in and drop out.
Mikael Stavostrand – Purple Sweatpants
Not a big surprise for people who follow my work. I’ve been a Stavostrand addict for a long time. I’ve finished a remix for him (under his “vita” moniker ) to be released on Fondation Rec. It is SO pleasant to remix such music.
Darabi – Top Drop
They’re from France and they represent the new French scene. They will release their first EP on my own label Get The Curse (with roman flügel and le loup remix). I love their artistic vision, it’s often
slower and more disco than mine but definitely as twisted as I like.
Kink – Don’t Stop
One of my favorite tracks this year so far. It’s so simple, so old school but the production is just perfect. I’ve played it all the time these last few months.
Jordan Dare- Trapped in Light
I’ve known Jordan Dare’s music for many years. His latest track sounds very electro but in a good way. I ‘m still a fan.
Boris Brejcha – Express Myself
Typically the kind of producer out of the hype, almost out of the business but with a very strong musical identity. That’s why I’m always digging his productions. His latest LP is full of Techno
anthems, I can play easily 6 tracks of this album!
