A Track A Day: Pierre Rousseau

A Track A Day:
Pierre Rousseau

With the current circumstances and the weird, turbulent times all over the globe, we asked our friends to choose a favourite track or an album for these isolated days, and share it with us along with a photo. A track a day keeps the bad vibes away. Stay safe.

Today we welcome French composer and producer Pierre Rousseau, also known as one half of Parisian duo Paradis, who just last year graced us with his excellent debut EP “Musique Sans Paroles” on Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space label. Our beloved producer shares with us one of his favourite records, the sublime “From Brussels With Love” compilation, released in 1980 via Les Disques du Crépuscule.

In his own words: “I chose the 1980 compilation ‘From Brussels With Love’, originally released and recently reedited by Les Disques du Crépuscule, which I seem to come back to time and time again since I first stumbled onto it at university. Over the years I have compulsively collected many formats of this compilation, but pictured here is the latest reissue, which features the design from the original Japanese release. In a way ‘From Brussels With Love’ is the ultimate mixtape, seamlessly blending pieces from artists such as Harold Budd, John Foxx, Durutti Column … so much so that I constantly come back to it for inspiration when crafting records which feature diverse styles of music. Beyond its beautiful albeit dark cover sleeve, ‘From Brussels With Love’ is a counterintuitively warm record. My personal highlights are the original demo of ‘Airwaves’ by Thomas Dolby and the interview with actress Jeanne Moreau ontop Erik Satie’s ‘Gnossienne’.”
