Thomas Pietrois-Chabassier is the producer-writer of, a project he collaborated on with the music producer Baptiste Bertrand.
Tombé pour la France – Etienne Daho
Etienne Daho sings the deep sadness of a break up while he makes you dance through a bubbly dancing pop song. I started dancing on two songs : Smalltown Boy from Bronski Beat and this one.

Mountain Time – Molly Nilsson
I discovered this album at Rough Trade and I became crazy. The voice of Molly Nilsson comes from something like a musical fog, filled with the same cold 80’s references that founded the listener I am. There is not a single Molly Nilsson song I do not like.

“H” Friend – Black Devil Disco Club
When I fell in love with this one, I started writing, and I wrote for hours, listening to that incredible unique dark and psychedelic disco sound. The story of this album should give hope to any artist who believes in its music. There will be a Black Devil Disco Club remix on the next EP.
Black Devil Disco Club - « H » Friend
Polaroid / Roman Photo – Ruth
I discovered this track thanks to the Born Bad Records Compilation BIPP that founded some of the identity we tried to create for État Limite with Baptiste Bertrand, for its Lo-fi dark and yet sentimental synthesizer style.

Follow Me – Amanda Lear
I’m crazy about this concept album Amanda Lear made with the producer Anthony Monn.

Get Closer – Valerie Dore
The voice of Dora Carofiglio moves me very much. I love this kind of fragile, melancholic and poetic voice. I found those characteristics in my sister’s voice, divine&acajou, who sings on Ce qui la nuit.

I feel Love – Donna Summer
I think this is the track that made me really obsessive about disco, about synthesizer, about electronic music, about everything.
I Feel Love
Toward – Mohini (Koudlam Remix)
One of the best remixes I’ve ever listened to. A very dark inner dialogue that never left me since its release.

J’ai entendu la mer – Christophe
This would be the last song of the movie I wish I’ll write one day. It would take place close to the sea, in a small city, during the winter.

Don’t Leave me this Way – Thelma Houston
Probably the song I cherish the most, for the memories it brings back. Makes me feel sad and strong at the same time.
Don't Leave Me This Way
Shoot your shot – Divine

État Limite – L’Amour N’Existera Plus (Etat Limite)
État Limite is a Paris based project helmed by Thomas Pietrois-Chabassier, a writer, journalist and former DJ, and music producer Baptiste Bertrand. In December last year, their first release ‘Ce Qui La Nuit’ featuring divine&acajou made waves and now another series of remixes brings a fresh perspective to album material.
La Mverte aka Paris bred producer Alexander Berly cut his teeth playing bass in post-punk bands, but as a solo artist mixes up Italo, New Wave, industrial sounds, and his SH-101 into razor-sharp and arresting productions on labels like Her Majesty’s Ship. His remix of ‘Le Chat’ pairs icy melodic hooks with rugged beats and deadpan vocals. It makes for a haunting tune built on solid bass and jerking rhythms.
Yan Wagner is a French electro, dance, and pop legend who has produced and arranged for many others while also serving up sophisticated albums of his own. Here he assumes his DJ and remixer alias The Populists to rework ‘Ce Qui La Nuit’. The vocal mix is a cosmic chugger with twinkling arps and the airy vocals bringing a detached sense of cool. The instrumental comes with more soft female vocal coos and the same tooting chords and stark drum hits.
Creatures of the Night label boss, Correspondent associate and dark disco outfit Zombies in Miami then step up. Their fantastic remix of ‘Déclic’ is a forward-facing, driving track built on sleek grooves with astral melodies and an expansive feel that really elevates your spirit.
Tagliabue is a music selector and producer based in Milan who leads the way in the city’s alternative scene. He takes inspiration from the environment that surrounds him and breaks down the boundaries between the genres on labels such as Blue Sea and Cosmica Music. His take on ‘L’Amour N’Existera Plus’ is a perfect dub excursion with bottomless drums, a warm and cavernous atmosphere, and deft pads that bring subtle cosmic feelings.
