11. MJ & Patti Austin – It’s The Falling In Love (The Reflex Revision) [1979]

Michael Jackson is a reference of my childhood’s soundtrack and pop culture in which I grew up.

12. Jean Michel Jarre – Equinox 6 [1978]

At around 10 years old, I received my first synthetizer after my father saw me playing Jean Michel Jarre by ear on a keyboard. He was proud. It was the beginning of my adventure with music.

13. Drax – Phosphene [1993]

I heard this track in a mix by Laurent Garnier on TV at night, with psychedelic visuals by V-Form. At that specific moment, I fell in love with techno music.

14. Underground Resistance – Amazon [1992]

Soon after, I was fascinated by Detroit techno for its melodies, its emotion. UR, Jeff Mills… I have a nice vinyls collection.

15. Dopplereffekt – Infophysix [1996]

That’s the electro side of Detroit music. Pure machine sounds, minimal. Dopplereffekt is timeless and still a big influence for me.

16. I-F – Space Invaders Are Smoking Grass [1997]

This is the ultimate electro track, the one I would love to have done.

17. Aphex Twin – Girl/Boy Song [1996]

I was crazy when I heard this song for the first time. Aphex Twin is one of the artists who most fascinated me with his skills and his genius.

18. Vitalic – Poney part 2 [2001]

I heard this track also in a mix by Laurent Garnier. It was a new form of techno music, complexed with electro synths and pop melodies. A kind of fusion of the sounds above.

19. Miss Kittin & The Hacker – Stock Exchange [2001]

I’m still a fan of Gigolo golden age, with the electroclash scene. Miss Kittin & The Hacker are one of them, their “First Album” was so exalting.

10. TGV – Fools Gold [2001]

Proud to be remixed by Mateo Murphy who did this fantastic track with Tiga, still fresh 20 years later.

Captain Mustache – Mentally Naked EP (My Favorite Robot Records)

French artist Captain Mustache lands on Canada’s My Favorite Robot with an EP that features a high-quality list of collaborators including Chicks on Speed, Mateo Murphy and Romina Cohn. Captain Mustache is from Paris and has been toiling away on this project for many years. He has worked with electro & techno idols including Adamski, The Advent and Paris The Black Fu who have all helped bring an extra vocal dimension to his music. Inspired by 80’s pioneers, Detroit techno and electroclash freaks, his sounds are a freaky mix of romantic, burlesque and cold electro styles from the future. The title track here kicks things off with the help of the iconic Chicks on Speed. It’s a stark and futuristic cut with deadpan vocals and crisp melodies that bring heartfelt emotion. Romina Cohn provides the vocals on ‘Besame Esta Noche’, a spaced-out electro journey that takes you through the stars on a skeletal groove that is perfectly icy. Things get more unhinged with the trippy ‘Body x Mind’, which has darker vocals and edgy chords accompanying the frozen drums and then Mateo Murphy steps up to remix. The Canadian veteran reworks ‘Mentally Naked’ into a loopy cut that is constantly on the rise. It keeps you perfectly in suspense and lost in the vocals, while his dub is just as special.
