Perfect Summer Playlist

It is HERE, the new playlist to emphasize the frenchiness of your summer. Featuring Charlotte, Claude (both Camp and Fontaine), Christine, L’Imperatrice, L’Eclair and waaaaaay more. Happy summer!

New Parfait Eté

Yes yes y’all, the new and bestest playlist for your (French) summer holiday is here, featuring all French producers. It’s a glitzy, disofied affair, featuring Brigitte, L’imperatrice, Octave Noir and Paradis, either remixed or orignal. Go HERE


Perfect Summer playlist


Yes, it’s here again, the Parfait Eté-playlist I make every year (the spelling error remains too), with purrfect French tunes to light up your summer daze. It’s all French, it’s all about sun, sea, sand and (thanks Serge) a li’l sex too.
Go HERE for the links to Spotify and Deezer.

Perfect Framericana

Framericana is French Americana, that’s blues, country, cajun ‘n rock all rolled together in, well, a croissant would be the most appropriate. I made a playlist featuring Alain Bashung, Betrand Belin, Marie Pierre Arthur, Les Hay Babies, Feloche, Axelle Red and Les soeurs Boulay (to name but a few), with songs that sound like they have Arizonan sand in the grooves and Appalachian gravel in the bones. Anyhoo, have a listen HERE

Perfect Non-English Pop

perfect_pop_differente_-300x300Just a quick note to the ones who still come here (out of nostalgia?): I just started a weekly updated playlist with non-English (as in: all languages except English) pop music. Go HERE, it includes French language pop too, and lots and lots of soft sighing girls.

Parfait Été 2015

parfait_2015The all new edition of Parfait Été, the French summer compilation I make every year for, is here. It has an African pop vibe, triggered by the Mathieu Boogaerts song I heard on FIP radio. Elegant nouvelle chanson with highlife touches, hmmm, interesting. I know a few more songs in that category. Lo and behold, there was the playlist (available on Deezer and Spotify). With known faces (Vanessa Paradis, Boogaerts, Murat) old 80s culthits (thanks Steve for Lizzy MD) and new names – you should really check out the full album by DjeuhDjoah and Lieutenant Nicholson. GO HERE

Parfait Été 2013

For the 4th time, I give you the perfect compilation for trips down the route du soleil, with only French(-Canadian) songs. Not necessarily sung in French, mind. And not only soft sighing girls. It’s disco, pop, rock, electronics, the lot! Streaming on Spotify and Deezer only. Go HERE. The cover was made (again) by the brilliant Wilbert Leering.


Perfect Paradis


For curator-site I compiled the ultimate Vanessa Paradis compilation. Deezer- and Spotify-only. Go HERE.

Parfait Pluie

Right after I posted the Parfait Eté compilation, all hell broke loose here in Holland. Torrential rains! As an addendum, I compiled the best rain songs in French, on Spotify.
