She's sexy. She's French. She's electronic.
Lola Dutronic. Euro chill electronic meets 60s Gainsbourg pop with English and French vocals.
An innovative new sound created by Remixer/Producer Richard Citroen and vocalist Frankie (Francoise) Hart.
The project came about when Ralph Alfonso of Bongo Beat Records commissioned Richard to create a "Walking On Sunshine" remix for his Katrina & The Waves compilation. As work progressed, it made more sense to bring in a vocalist and create a new track from scratch.... the results were so impressive, that an entire album's worth of material was quickly asked for, and here it is. It is a well crafted loving homage to classic pop sounds and the astute 60s pop culture enthusiast will note the many references to treasured touchstones of the era.
In addition to orginal material, there are exceptional treatments of "The Porpoise Song" by The Monkees, "Ma Jeunesse Fout Le Camp" (Francoise Hardy), "To Sir With Love" (Lulu), "La Fin de L'été" (Brigitte Bardot) and "La Maritza" (Sylvie Vartan). CD has bilingual sticker!!
Toronto based Richard Citroen has collaborated with Paul Hyde (the recent Canadian hit "I Want You/Remix"), Holly Cole, DJ Chris Sheppard, DJ Dante, DJ Terry Kelly (Top Kat), Pobi, and The Blow Up, amongst others. In his rock and roll past, he's performed/recorded with The Diodes, Eric Debris (Metal Urbain), Forgotten Rebels, and Simply Saucer.
Vocalist Frankie Hart is a respected session singer and this project brought her back in touch with her French heritage and inspired her to contribute French lyrics as well.
Cover painting is by Bongo Beat style setter Tom Bagley.
