Antena | Toujours Du Soleil

Brand new album from the stylish French electro-bossa pioneers whose debut Camino Del Sol is now an acknowledged genre classic. Antena's groundbreaking mix of Kraftwerk, Suicide and the breezy tropicalia of the Gilberto family sounds as fresh in 2006 as in 1982, when John Foxx produced their debut single, The Boy From Ipanema, and future Pet Shop Boy Neil Tennant tagged them 'electro-samba'. Echoes of the Antena sound can be heard in artists as diverse as Stereolab, Electralane and Thievery Corporation - indeed the latter duo co-wrote two of the thirteen songs on Toujours Du Soleil.
The Antena trio for 2006 consists of main songwriter Isabelle Antena together with daughter Penelope Fasy (replacing her father Sylvain) and hip Brussels dj Axailes Solar. Conceived as a sequel to Camino Del Sol, Toujours Du Soleil (Always The Sun) was recorded on the French Riviera - where else? - and produced by Dr Drak, Shape and The Cool Groove Sessions. Featuring a stellar cast of prestigious international guests, including Thievery Corporation, the 2006 Antena trip takes you from Paris to Tokyo, Goa to Washington DC. Stand-out tracks include energetic stepper Le Spinner (already familiar from the Samsonite ad campaign), future lounge classic Toujours Du Soleil and the electro-groovy Love Is To Blame, as well as a magical version of the laid-back America classic Horse With No Name.
