Cette semaine, Anoraak sort son premier disque “Nightdrive with You” et pour fêter cet évènement, il passe outre les règles de Valerie, en nous proposant un mix un peu spécial… Habituellement, vous pouvez écouter ici des titres façonnés dans les 80’s ou qui s’en inspirent beaucoup mais cette fois-ci, il veut vous faire (re)découvrir la musique qui a inspiré cette époque… Il vous invite donc à un petit voyage entre 1974 et 1979, les belles années du funk et du disco! Alors voilà le programme: enregistrez ce mix pour pouvoir l’écouter dans votre autoradio, réglez le temps sur “ensoleillé” et quelque soit votre voiture, imaginez vous au volant d’une Pontiac Trans AM, sortez vos lunettes de soleil, allumez le moteur, appuyez sur play, volume à fond, direction la mer… L’été n’est pas près de s’arrêter. Right on!

This week, Anoraak breaking the Valerie rules. This week his first release “Nightdrive with You” is now available worldwide. And as a celebration, Anoraak made a special selection. Usually, you can here listen to music made in the 80’s, or clearly related to this synthetic decade. And Anoraak wanted to go back a few years before, giving you some specials which contributed to make the music we’re blogging about on these lines. I’m talking about the 74-79 years, the ones of the great disco-funk. So please, tape this mix down for a car use, set the weather on “sunny”, no matter what’s your car, just think you’re gonna ride a Pontiac Trans AM, put your shades on, start the engine, put the tape on, turn it loud, drive to the sea, this summer will last forever. Right on !
