French producer Møme (Jérémy Souillart) and LA singer Ricky Ducati celebrate the release of their new single ‘They Said’, taken from Møme’s upcoming debut album ‘Flashback FM’, with a high energy disco mix. ‘Flashback FM’ is a new direction for Møme, artistically speaking. It is more personal and timeless, a project that is a good deal warmer than what he has done so far. This time, it’s the sun of the City Of Angels and its many inspirations (Kraftwerk, Alan Parsons Project), which acts as the impetus behind his trip to the past with ‘Flashback FM’, an imaginary radio station – and perhaps an (in)voluntary wink at Flash FM, the famous radio from GTA Vice City, full of West Coast hits – perfectly matching the very special atmosphere of Los Angeles. A trip taken with Ricky Ducati who has lived in the city for over ten years.
Ricky’s love for the French Touch and filtered house also takes inspiration from Barry Gibb, Brian Wilson and Jeff Lynne. As it is often the case these days, the two young men met first on the net. Five years ago, they slowly discovered each other’s work on Soundcloud. This was followed by two 100% digital collaborations, including the hit ‘Sail Away’ (2018), a certified gold with 15 million streams worldwide. The rest of their story is now taking place in the real world.
Attracted by the imperfect music of an era when the computer had not yet taken over, the Franco-Canadian duo sees ‘Flashback FM’ as a living, old-school album with an unabashedly modern sound. A collection of various electronic tunes, with an eye on the rearview mirror while continuing to speed straight ahead.
With its Daft Punk-esque filters of the ‘Discovery’ period, and its intelligent winks to disco, funk, electro, punk, rock West Coast and French touch, ‘Flashback FM’ brings together everything a dance floor can generate in terms of positive energy. Welcome to the time capsule playlist of the future!
