29/04/14 w/ Vidal Benjamin

A good NIMH episode takes time and patience. This show with French DJ Vidal Benjamin is the product of four years of pestering and not accepting “I’m too busy” for an answer. I’m sure I’m not alone in saying that Vidal’s aesthetic, taste and mixes on Lovefingers, Test Pressing and Emotional Pop have had a big impact on the scene. One of the projects occupying Vidal’s time is ‘Disco Sympathie’ – a tribute to the tracks forgotten in the back of radio station vaults, compiling French vocals from the early 80s disco and boogie era. Scheduled for a European fall release on Gilb’R’s Versatile Records, the retrospective will be preceded by an edit 12″ in July, with contributions from famous members of the Parisian community. This mix could be considered the roots of ‘Disco Sympathie’, selections that share the same spirit but are made mainly during the 70s, sometimes flirting dangerously with Chanson.
