Karim Al Asswad & Madmoizel #3 “Le bal perdu

“The forgotten ballroom” In reference to the most moving French song ever « Le Bal Perdu »No rules, no time, no space, the ballroom of a present moment, a suspended moment.

Le thème du Bal perdu, le titre d’un standard français, un des plus émouvant. Ce bal qui échappe à toutes règles, celle du temps, celle de l’espace. Le bal du moment présent, d’un moment suspendu dans le temps.

Karim Al Asswad & Madmoizel #2 “Dream losers – Forbidden dreams

“Listen to the Station!
There was a time, when you could dream
There was a time, when you could dream
Now, Now,
It has become a claim!
It has become a claim!
To dream ….. dream losers”
Lyrics © Alan Vega – Station Station (2007)

In reference to Alan Vega’s lyrics “Station Station” we were pleased to introduce the new chapter of our serie of mixes with this song and with a special artwok. We were not surprised that the Alan Vega’s distributors / authors rights blocked our youtube channel. So we have decided to remove the artwork and to substitute “Alan Vega – Station Station” by the great “Dirty Beaches – Casino Lisboa” which perfectly fits with “Dream losers- Forbidden dreams” ‘s theme.
