Label: Her Majesty's Ship

This always inventive and off kilter artist has had many top releases on labels like Kitsune and has worked with the likes of the legendary Arnaud Rebotini and Etienne Daho. He also has a side project, The Populists, is producing the first album of Calypso Valois and wrote the soundtrack for the short film ‘Victoria’ by Mathilde Marc. Someone who plays events like SXSW and Montreux Jazz Festival, Wagner’s playful disco-pop tunes always find their way into the emotions of those who hear them.

For his second album, the artist wondered what to do: surprise everyone with a selection of ballads or serve up the electronic sounds that defined his last effort Forty Eight Hours. The answer lies somewhere in between, with covers of Frank Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood mixed in with fresh and catchy disco production. Unlike the last record produced by Arnaud Rebotini, this LP is produced by Yan himself, who chose to favour first takes and reduce the post production. His main idea was to work on a warmer and more sophisticated sound, and also focus on the voice (which is more assured).
