Almost Summer...

Just checked this mix from French synth-pop band Jupiter (pictured above). An old friend from school, I've known Quarles for 8 years, and over the last couple he and his partner Amelie have been busy in the studio creating and fine-tuning their own special blend of boogie-funk, synth-pop, electro and disco, with massive analogue synths and drum machines creating the backdrop for Amelie's soft yet powerful vocal melodies to soar above. They recently put together this mix entitled 'Almost Summer' (which seems to be the theme of the moment on this blog!). Boogie-funk, electro-disco and more - an insight into the music which has influenced their sound. Jupiter have been creating quite a storm in both France and here in the UK - definitely one to watch. Look out for London gigs as they visit the capital to play quite often, and their live show will not disappoint.
