Croquet Club - Love Exposure
Frenchman Jeremy Villecourt aka Croquet Club has become an Anjunadeep fan favorite over the past two years with his unique brand of delicate downtempo electronica. With support from international tastemakers like Zane Lowe, Jason Bentley, and Rob Da Bank under his belt, and coverage from The Line of Best Fit, Mixmag, and Indie Shuffle, Croquet Club now returns with his most expansive project to date – 'Love Exposure'.
Following the footsteps of legendary French acts like Air, Sebastian Tellier, and Etienne De Crecy (who featured Croquet Club's "Jacuzzi" in his latest BBC Essential Mix), the six track mini-album sees Jeremy showcase his quirky style in true gallic fashion.
The blissful beatlessness of "Andante" ushers us into Villecourt's musical world, before his own vocals appear in the soulful "Careless Love". "Summer" is a joyous slice of dancefloor fun, melodic basslines bouncing beneath wistful vocals.
"Go Slow" – an intricate fusion of soft piano and a rolling groove – will be familiar to Anjunadeep regulars after it's appearance on the iTunes #1 Dance album 'Anjunadeep 07'. Jeremy's vocals take center stage in "Eternite" where his breathy lyrics, sung in French, loop hypnotically above bubbling atmospherics, before "You Left Me" ends things on a beautifully contemplative note.
"Wonderfully chilled… extremely refined.. stunningly natural. In one fell swoop Croquet Club has established himself as a cult artist." – Clash
