Sélection musicale: Dirty
This latest mixtape has been put together by our old friends and long-term collaborators Guillaume Sorge & Clovis Goux, selectors from Dirty Sound System.
We’ve been big fans of their compilations since 2003, and especially the Dirty
Diamonds series. So far, there have only been three volumes, but rarely have
house, new wave and pop been so cleverly combined on a compilation.
For this mix they’ve chosen to go down the folk route. Clovis Goux took some
time out to tell us about it:
«Despite a deep-rooted dislike for troubadour-types, folk music remains fertile
ground, when it manages to put aside the old acoustic guitar / militant poetry
convention and explore soul, world music, psychedelic music and even medieval
sounds. This compilation includes tracks from stars of the genre as well as
complete unknowns. All of them, in their own way, have strayed off the beaten
path to take folk music towards new horizons.»
