After the release of his fifth full-length “Confection”, an almost entirely instrumental affair, back in October, French electro-pop guru Sébastien Tellier returns with his Brazilian-influenced new album “L’Aventura”, which will drop on May 26th via Records Makers. Today, we’re treated to a new video for the album’s second single “L’Adulte”. “For this album I wanted to rewrite my childhood. I chose to locate this adventure in Brazil, a land of splendour and joy, a country with an eternal child-like soul,” he says.

He’s back! Sébastien Tellier returns with his surprise-album “Confection” on Record Makers, which follows last year’s “My God Is Blue”. Today, we’re treated to a video for the album’s superb first single “L’amour naissant”, starring Anna Mouglalis and Clément Chabernaud.
The label describes his new album as a “love letter for a film that doesn’t exist yet.” Apart from one song, “Confection” is an entirely instrumental piece that Sébastien conceived like a motion picture score. Several romantic musical themes are showcased in different versions, orchestral or acoustic.
Directed by Jean-Baptiste Mondino.
Sébastien Tellier’s “Confection” arrives on October 14th in France and November 8th worldwide via Records Makers. “L’amour naissant” is out now. Buy it here.

Once more during this year we have been sharing with you tons of free music, and today we’re really excited to reveal La.Ga.Sta.’s Top 40 most downloaded tracks of 2012. This is a chart compiled by our readers, who by the way have great taste. We couldn’t agree more. Breakbot’s “Programme” is top of the list, followed closely by Perseus’ “Seychelles” and Chromatics’ “Kill For Love”. Of course there is more to this list. Who can drive passed beloved artists such as Todd Terje, John Talabot, Poolside, The Magician, Classixx, Moon Boots, among others, or tracks like Slow Hands’ cover of Bon Iver’s “Towers” and Pional’s remix of The Rapture’s “In The Grace Of Your Love”.
It’s been an amazing year vroomers, and this is the list that proves it. Here’s your chance to revisit 2012′s most popular mpFrees. Fill it up (once again) and stay gas all the way to 2013. Enjoy!

Fresh off the release of his rework of Earth And Fire’s 1979 classic “Weekend” for Smile Recordings, Mickey stops again at our station with yet another sublime remix. This time he adds his signature style to Sébastien Tellier’s “Sedulous”. We were jamming this remix all weekend long.
