1. John Beltran : Em Trancoso

I’m a huge fan of this guy and his previous aliases (Placid Angles). His music is polished, sun-soaked, and incredibly groovy. It never fails to transport me into endless daydreams.

2. DJ Gregory : Don’t Know Malendro

DJ Gregory is one of the French artists I’ve listened to the most. I’m a huge fan of his label, Faya Combo, known for its sunny vibes. I play this track in particular very often because its groove, guitars, and drums are absolutely perfect for the dance floor. Plus, the main melody takes us on a hypnotic, nostalgic journey.

3. Curtis Mayfield : So In Love

It may not be a club banger, but it’s been with me since the very beginning of my life. I’m a huge soul fan, and I’m deeply moved by tracks rooted in the emotions of love. Curtis Mayfield is undoubtedly one of the vanguards in the genre.

4. Melchior Sultana : Paradise

A beautiful deep house track that my friend Tour-Maubourg introduced to me a few years ago, saying I’d love it. He was spot on. The deep pads, the beats, and the groove instantly hooked me. Plus, the flamenco influence in the guitars, giving it a hint of Balearic, was a major source of inspiration for my latest EP with guitarist Soren Lyann.

5. Marvin Gaye : I Want You

My all-time favorite artist since my childhood, and I listened to him a lot with my father. It’s a love song, much like Curtis’ songs, that fills me with emotions. The introductory part with the percussion and Marvin Gaye is simply incredible.

6. Frankie Knuckles : The Whistle Song 

A timeless classic that truly made me fall in love with deep house. The ethereal pads and the melody send me soaring, while the solid bassline and drums keep me grounded. Undoubtedly, a track that has been a significant source of inspiration for my music over the years.

7. Jose Padilla : Bosaxi

Arguably one of the pioneers, if not the pioneer, of Balearic music. I’m captivated by the blend of influences in this track. The Latin flavor in the drums exudes a sense of endless sunshine and an entrancing groove. The melodies make you take flight. It’s the perfect track for a day by the sea. José is an artist from whom I draw a lot of inspiration for my own compositions.

8. Tour-Maubourg : Déclaration Préalable à l’embauche 

Tour-Maubourg’s first track on Pont Neuf, a vibrant tribute to polished and romantic deep house, greatly inspired me thereafter.

9. Saudade : Sonha 

Another artist from Pont Neuf, with whom I’ve been making music for over 10 years, created this track, a club banger that I’m completely in love with. The percussion groove, the solid foundation that keeps us grounded, and the dreamy pads that lift us up, all make this track truly magical. It has been a significant source of inspiration for my own productions.

10. Ryuichi Sakamoto : 20210310 

One of the artists I’ve been listening to for a very long time, known for breathtakingly elegant melodies and dream-inducing pads. There’s a certain celebration of slowness in his work, akin to the spirit of Erik Satie back in the day. This artist moves me every time I listen to him.

A few last words.

And there we have it, the grand finale of our melodious session with Cosmonection. What a privilege it’s been to unravel the anthems that have influenced the maestro himself. A huge shoutout to Cosmonection for guiding us through this musical landscape, where each track shines a light on the path of his artistic journey.
