This first outstanding 10” vinyl on Parisian label Musique Large features on the A-side Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez’s single «Superman»: an epic instrumental track, punchy but well-rounded, cranky yet optimistic, not particulary inspired by the Superman theme, but nevertheless well-suited for saving the world while flying through the stratosphere wearing tights. The B side slows things down with «Beijos Seus Labios»: a smokey off-beat quest for love, a bouncing bass coated with soft electric piano stylings. The portuguese poetry of Minadosom is sung beautifully by Tita Lima, a rising brasilian star with a magnetic voice.
A perfect soundtrack for making out on the beach.

Musique Large draft fellow Parisians Baron Retif & Concepcion Perez in the fold for their debut EP. Unlike label-mates Débruit and Fulgeance, BR & CP have a more organic approach to music making, preferring live, off-the-grid drums played to sequenced subbass lines and adroit synthworks with a playful, bright and airy jazz feel so redolent of their home city. "Connecting the dots from Dr. Dre to Sun Ra, from Liquid Liquid to The Roots and back..." their sound is full of smoky grooves, best heard on the delicious 'Beijos Seus Labios' and hashish-infused headiness with 'Superman'. Ace.
