Short info:
In the previous episode: one Queen of Hearts (Catherine Ringer) and two Aces of Spades (Müller + Makaroff) played a game of tango with shades of rock : Plaza Francia. It's beena triumph of leather bound with red velvet. These two worlds have gotten to know each other pretty well.

It would have been easy to quickly put out a live album of the tour, and tempting to remix the studio album too. But to mix these two events into one, that's unheard of: it's an audacious venture to rework (and recompose) in a studio the songs recorded live. That's how seven pieces recorded in public on a multitrack were surgically dissected while retaining the live energy and handed over to expert remixers.

Chico Sonido and Centavrvs. Sonido comes from digital cumbia and revamped two tracks from the original repertoire with aerial dub, while the Centavrvs collective, who practice a more poppy brand of electro but were bred with regional music (locale) and psychedelic Peruvian music from the 60's, offered the Señora Ringer a comfortable roots and amber setting.

The German duo Wolfsburg Pupkulies & Rebecca were also called to service and gave the song 'La Mision' a Berlin shade, sombre and dancefloor till the break of dawn.

There are also two remixes signed by Roy Dubb, mystery remixer who is in fact no other than… Christoph Müller, one of the three from Plazia Francia, who has been remixing tracks for years, either in his pre-Gotan Project phase (when he was doing Boyz from Brazil) or with the Argentinean singer Melingo. Muller notably pumped a whole load of dancefloor power into the engine of the opening song from the original album (which closes this one), 'La Mano Encima', and 'Cada Vez', with electro-latino treatments.

To complete this Re-experience album, there are three new songs (new on record but well established on tour), 'Intro la Mano' which opens the live show, 'Dame Luz' which entered the repertoire mid-tour and 'I've Seen That Face Before', an adaptation of Astor Piazzolla's 'Libertango' that Jean-Paul Goude had tailor-made for Grace Jones in 1981, which Catherine Ringer interprets with gusto.

Rock, tango, dance: serve chilled, the dancefloor awaits. The address: Plaza Francia.

Catherine Ringer (from Rita Mitsouko) sings Müller & Makaroff (from Gotan Project) This is the story of two worlds sizing each other up, meeting and getting to know each other. On one side, the Argentinean Eduardo Makaroff and the Swiss Christoph H. Müller, the two pillars of Gotan Project, looking for extracurricular activities: to establish a bridge between tango and pop music, with original themes. To help them do this in style, a few female singers agreed to step out of their usual repertoire (rock? jazz? flamenco?). So they started to write for these singers and established a list of singular and prestigious vocalists outside of the world of tango. On the other side, Catherine, who in the recent years managed to impose the name Ringer, one of France.s great voices, who very serenely succeeded in building a career for herself after the Rita Mitsouko: after 30 years in a band that marked French rock forever with its peculiar style, she has bravely established herself as a solo artist. And then. A phone call was enough. Müller, a die-hard fan of the Rita, suggested Catherine Ringer. Makaroff tried his luck. Immediately, Catherine said: .Who does this gorgeous Argentinean accent belong to?. Makaroff mumbled: .Well, I have a project that.s not typical, or nostalgic, or Gotan, or Rita Mitsouko.. .Why don.t you tell me what your project is about?., was her answer. Edouardo took it as an encouragement. The Gotan pair brought her the lyrics and arrangements for two songs. She recorded the vocals. They were amazed by her ease. Christoph Müller called it .organically natural.. Catherine loved the project. She has a penchant for all things Latin: remember .Marcia Baila., one of Rita Mitsouko.s most emblematic songs, a tribute to Marcia Moretto, an Argeninean dancer based in Paris with whom Catherine had worked before starting Rita. She also sang in a musical by Argentinean director Alfredo Arias. And it.s clear that .La Ringer. loves to perform and change styles. .Tango also belongs to me because it.s universal. I always loved singing old sad, nostalgic French songs., she says, .and I find it similar to tango.. It.s true, that repertoire suits her grain of voice. And with a soupcon of French accent, it.s absolutely perfect! They asked her to sing - in Argentinean Spanish, of course . on the entire record. They called it Plaza Francia. According to Gustavo Beytelmann, the legendary Paris-based Argentinean tango arranger, who worked on Plaza Francia: .She has a tango personality, which is rare.. This untraditional tango reaches out to pop music with a rhythm close to Catherine.s musical past, and with climatic effects in the orchestration. This is all ensconced in Beytelmann.s silky setting of piano, bandoneon and strings. It.s more than tango, it.s France meets Argentina, Piazzolla meets Santana. The lyrics, signed Makaroff (Eduardo and his brother Sergio), speak the language of tango: heartbreak, drama, exile. and love. This is no small event, for with this record, Catherine Ringer opens the doors to the Americas, opened one century before by another French lady. Edith Piaf. From Buenos Aires to Nueva York, she has a good number of ears to seduce. She.s about to surprise the world, for once again, .La Ringer. demonstrates that she has more than one string to her musical bow!

Sebastian has followed such an impressive path that it?s hard to believe that he?s only now releasing his long-awaited debut album. But the facts are clear: after several EPs (H.A.L, Smoking Kills, Ross Ross Ross, Motor), a record compiling his many remixes for Daft Punk, Kelis and the Kills among others (Sebastian Remixes) and a co production of the soundtrack for the film Steak with Sebastien Tellier and Mr Oizo, in which he also played one of the leading roles. Ever elusive, he unveiled yet another side of his creativity in composing a philharmonic score for Notre Jour Viendra, Romain Gavras? first film. One of the creators, along with Justice, of the Ed Banger sound, he is without a doubt the label?s most unusual figure. An iconoclast maverick he readily defies the rules to deliver a dirty and violent kind of techno that coughs and spits; music to his image: human and visceral. Super prolific and constantly effervescent this musician has managed, in the space of a few years, to redefine electronic music and is ready to astound everyone once again with TOTAL, a definitive and meteoric first album.
