For their next reissue, Parisian crew Discomatin picked one of the rarest and sought-after releases of the
French Boogie scene, Lot'Vie / Y'a Du Blues by Marché Noir. The original 12" from 1984 gets a proper
remastering and delivers its powerful mixture of Boogie, Jazz-Funk and West Indies influences. Two amazing
titles finally reissued with a loud sound!
"Lot'Vie" is a perfect blend of powerful funky rhythms with tons of percussion, second to none slap bass
and dope synths leads. With its infectious chorus ("son a bip bip!"), the track seems to irresistibly make you
move your feet. Sung in creole, the track speaks about everyone going their own way, knowing that past,
present and future are only one.
"Y'a Du Blues (Tant Pis, C'est La Vie)" is based on a monstrous boogie bassline. the song talks about
melancholy and hope, but with joy. In these troubled times, lyrics surely get a special meaning: whatever
happens, keep smiling because after all "c'est la vie" ("that's life").
Marché Noir brought together friends and family around keyboardist Max Marolany living in the south of
France, with the band starting in the second part of the seventies. Excited by the new funky sound coming
from the USA, they wanted to create Marché Noir to compose and sing their own French songs. With a full
range of references, from Zouk to Soul, from Disco to Funk, Reggae and Pop, their first goal was to have fun!
The band was playing in clubs and festivals around Marseille, Nice, Aix-en-Provence and Fréjus. With this
local fame, they ended up doing the first parts of Touré Kunda and french rockstar Johnny Hallyday. Without a
doubt, their live shows were a truly funky experience.
Thanks to Discomatin, the EP is now available to the real connoisseurs with an exclusive insert that
contains lyrics, again with fantastic illustrations from French artist Camille de Cussac.
