This Geneva-based band have finely honed their instrumental "post-internet groove", creating the perfect blend of old-school funk, afro-beat, 70s soundtrack fusion, always adding a pinch of futuristic production and a touch of modernity aimed at bring the groove genre to new generations.
Side A, 'Funky Splash' is an original composition, understated in its groove but with the punch and crunch falling in all the right places, hence can be enjoyed either stewing in the background or as a dancefloor filler. The wah-wah and off-the-wall synths are both used to great rhythmic effect.
Side B, 'O Caminho do Bem', is a cover version of the Brazilian musical heavyweight Tim Maia. Always hard to revisit a classic, but L'Eclair's tight musicianship, perfect pacing and futuristic twist all add an extra layer of groove onto the mellow funk of the original.
Another slice of immaculate sounds for the ears and feet.

Early Yann Tiersen vibes: when it's joyful and sad at the same time. The sax sings pure and beautiful. The play on words is on point, but the rhythm actually has its personal warm feeling and wood-sound that takes you away to fantasy village dances.
One of those pieces you put in loop for days. Andrea Calligaris
