Les Gans is the first of the two singles taken out from the stellar album Face à l’est by Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts. They only come out at night, the second single to be released this year, will follow up with by a remix by Musique Risquée’s own Horror Inc (aka Akufen). These two tracks (until now only available on CD) were kept out of the LP in order to provide them with the special treatment of a remix. So for the first part of this double series we asked Audio Werner, an artist who’se work we really respect, to reinterpret Guillaume’s original mix. On the A side, you’ll find the original version of Les Gans, a beautifully crafted moody house tune. It’s melancholic but none of the less cheerfull tone provides the listeners with a feeling that tomorrow might not be so dark after all. Les Gans, with it’s afro jazz sensibility, represents the underlying theme of Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts album Face à l’est. Organic drum patterns topped by a persistent saxophone line (played by [iks] saxophonist Sebastien Arcand Tourigny) result in a complex composition that unfolds slowly, leading the minds into profound hypnosis. On the B side, Audio Werner (Hartchef, Perlon, Hello Repeat) takes us deep into his foggy mind. Known from the public for his versatility, it’s the first time he dives so deep into the dubby side of things. Setting the mood with the hugest most massive bass ever, he then proceeds to reveal all the elements slowly over an amazing 12 minutes of pure delight. As an answer to the original melodic line, Audio Werner brings in the saxophone of Hayden Chislom, collaborator of Burnt Friedman and member of Root 70. The result is pure pleasure and Musique Risquée is now happy to share it with you.
