The Avener’s use of acoustic instruments in his tracks injects soul into a robotic scene. His playlist for us should bring you to life in a similar way.
“It’s blues with jazz, folk and funk influences, and electronic instruments. It has feelings, emotion and nostalgia, but a lot of energy too.” That’s how French DJ, The Avener describes himself. Island Records’ latest signing is set to re-release ‘Fade Out Lines’, his internationally acclaimed rework of Phoebe Kildeer and The Short Straws 2013 track ‘The Fade Out Line’ on 15th February next year with a package of remixes to follow.
Our exclusive playlist from the producer is a selection of uplifting house you can really dance to. We imagine this would be the soundtrack to a wild night out touring the best jazz bars and clubs in Paris with The Avener. Until his debut album ‘The Wanderings Of The Avener’ drops early next year, we’re just going to have to listen to these tracks on repeat for inspiration.
Kevin Yost – ‘Messing With My Soul (Original Mix)’
20 years of groove, I love it, so deep.
LTS – ‘Drifting (Nathan G Re_Feel)’
This track is so jazzy, typical Deep House we can hear in Parisian jazz bars.
Crystal Fighters – ‘Love Alight (Jean Tonique Remix)’
The definition of freshness.
Jaw & Claptone – ‘Amour Tjs (Original Mix)’
Sensual and deep: the perfect mix.
Simon Mattson & Christian Nielsen – ‘Reality (Gorge Remix)’
It’s a good DJ tool, and I love Gorge’s stuff.
Sam Smith – ‘Like I Can (Jonas Rathsman Remix)’
The best remix I found, it sounds a little bit techno.
D.General – ‘Mystery (Original Mix)’
Good DJ tool.
Cee Roo – ‘Take The Load’
My favorite track of the moment.
Damian Lazarus, The Ancient Moons – ‘Lovers’ Eyes (Mohe Pi Ki Najariya) (Carl Craig Remix)’
This is the ethnic influences that I like, perfect mix by Carl Craig.
‘Fade Out Lines’ will be available as a re-release from 15th February 2015, with ‘The Wanderings Of The Avener’ album to follow.
