Description

A slice of French post-disco jazz dance, Lionel Benjamin has the gravitas of Gainsbourg but croons like a talented bar singer who's yet-to-be spotted and launched to fame. Taken from his 1982 album Melodie, these are two touching pieces of tangible human soul. The soft lilts and hums of "Melodie" have already been heavily sported by Giles Peterson and the Wah Wah 45s crew, but don't sleep on "Montreal"... What begins with an emotional birdsong acapella quickly spirals into a ludicrously funky bassline that we guarantee will knock your floor for six.
