a safe space for pepe enthusiasts to share and discuss the man’s work… honestly i am shocked his career has been so long and multi-faceted. love his older deeper stuff obviously, but also a lot of the stuff he’s put out the past ten years, which is so obtuse, fresh and forward-thinking.
also has anyone seen him DJ? i’ve heard that he did a fair amount of gigs in the late 90s / early 00s but doesn’t seem to have played much the last 10 years so wondering how he makes a living…
a few tracks that have gutted me over the years:
Le Theme De Pierre Le Cosmonaute
@ The Stanley
What’s Wrong With The Picture?
Such a fearless remix of an iconic act.
obvious… but omg this is pure E
Another obvious one but still so good
Always thought this was a bit underrated, compared to Deep Burnt anyway
He’s a flipping brilliant producer. He’s got that Dilla thing through house ears and it’s all very natural. Just messing with beats all day long.
Probably my most played record of all time. Always hits the spot.
Always loved this one. Synthese is a great album as well.
the whole Confiote de Bits is quality, this being a personal favourite
Always had a soft spot for this one…with a cheeky little Phylyps Trak sample if I’m not mistaken
“Deep Burnt” is one of those tunes that I feel should be reserved for special moments only. I once heard it played in an early warm-up set between some mellow disco-house and was nearly offended!
He’s a genius for sure, and seems to be a genuine oddball too. I think this is my favorite track of his- “Ghost”.
Never quite got deep burnt though!
That recent Cinematic Orchestra one is v nice.
Got a few faves but this is the modern classic
agreed, this one is masterful
yes of course, that one is huge. a real journey full of emotion.
Funny most ppl still just posted his older shit. He is popping up on social media and recently replied to a tweet where I heavily criticized his more recent music. I was right so I don’t feel bad lol. But it sounds from his newest record that maybe he was taking some of that to heart, def a step in the right direction.
