Gangpol und Mit - Sylvain's mix

Sylvain Quément is the inimitable musical half of Gangpol und Mit.  I've liked them and dj'd their stuff for a few years now so I was delighted to see they were playing London recently for the first time.  The vid above is an example of some of their stuff I like best.  The show was fab and so I thought I might ask Sylvain to dj with me.  He sent me this mix that blew my mind - seriously!!  So many tracks I've not clue about and yet it's really poppy and fun at the same time.

Then he came down to dj with me at Catch 22 and it was exactly the same.  So he is my new favorite dj and he just moved to London.  So hopefully I can see him around shaking things up a bit.  I also am giving you a download link to a few of the individual tracks.  I especially recommend you check out Finnish band Aavikko.

Sylvain is also a contributor to the Cartilage Consortium blog which is really full of amazing finds such as this asian ethno pop, this fab Cameroon disco, and this mega mega Madrid band Retrato Robot.
