The Valerie Collective is not just a music blog - it is a group of like-minded DJs and musicians from the West of France that fuse authentic 80s synths with modern indie/electronica. They sound like Daft Punk doing an '80s movie soundtrack... their tracks are startling in their consistency, mood and feel; they offer a sense of a time that never existed, but we all somehow understand... a future that once seemed possible. Their retro/futuristic artwork (by The Zonders) sums it up nicely. There are several artists under the collective's umbrella, (including College, Anoraak and Russ Chimes - all of whom will be performing, plus their friends Fear of Tigers). This will be official launch party for their eagerly awaited first compilation - and the buzz is out.
LIVE: RUSS CHIMES + ANORAAK + FEAR OF TIGERS + TESLA BOYS
