The jazz-referencing, relentless beat of ‘Rue Brusherie’ sees Olivier swing alongside Richard Gow on piano. Occasionally too he borrows certain aspects of early house, as is clear on ‘Flying Over Time’ and ‘Housewife’, which features Miss Kittin on vocals. And yet he ventures into other sub-genres just as gracefully. Alongside the more
percussive ‘Latitude’ and the melodic and techno ‘Nightfall’, track ‘Harmonie’ is an emotional and modern deep-house gem in perfect harmony with the InFiné catalogue. Two eminent guests also feature on the album: Scalde, whose vocals soar against the keyboard lines of the highly personal ‘The Phoney Lullaby’ and young singer
Mesparrow – a new talent on the French pop scene – on introspective cut ‘Traveling Fast’. Two very striking performances.
his is music conducive to daydreaming, smiling, feet-tapping and escapism... The album unfolds seamlessly, much to our serenity and delight. “Tides of Mind” is the work of an artist who appears to enjoy a new-found sense of tranquillity and is second to none in managing to convey it.
