The ‘French Touch’ excited listeners in the late Nineties and early Noughties. Combining influences from Soul, Jazz, Latin and African music with chic electronics, artists such as St. Germain, Laurent Garnier, Daft Punk and Llorca delivered deep sounding delights to discerning audiences in clubs and at parties all over the world.
Llorca (christened Lludovic Llorca and also known as Art of Tones) is now stepping back into the scene with a new album entitled ‘The Garden’ and a decidedly different sound. Excellent songwriting and production is underpinned with gritty grooves displaying mature Funk overtones, topped off with guest appearances from a host of superb singers. Some are well known, including Georg Levin of Berlin based Sonar Kollektiv, Parisian Soul queen Laetitia Dana, plus the New York pairing of Drum’n’Bass/House vocalist Frank H. Carter III and R&B/Soul artist Halley Hiatt, while a host of newcomers include Mawogani Wood, Stefan Frank, Sapele and Michael Barthelemy. Each help to seed ‘The Garden’ and make it a melodic treasure trove that grows with each listen, blooming from great songs into future classics – this is surely Llorca’s best music to date.
