Captain Détendu - Détendu (Digital Single, Jewpop Records, 2014)

Captain Detendu

Thanks to the Paris DJs & Jewpop crews, here's an incredible occasion to both learn French and get relaxed with this 1st Captain Détendu single.

A Master of hypnotic rhythms and stupid samples, Captain Détendu expresses here his deep love of Hawaiian music, wha wha guitars and bongoes. Tthe 'granpa' voice you'll hear all along this track comes from the cult 1960s recording 'Le Disque Qui Guérit', a.k.a. 'The Record That Heals', by French fakir Yvon Yva.

'Détendu' is a French word for cool, relaxed, easygoing… So is this electro-downtempo or funky-exotica lounge? Nope, this is the ultimate 'Détendu' formula: peaceful music + out-of-step humour = absolute happiness! As the fakir Yvon Yva said: 'un infini bien-être s'empare de vous' (an infinite well-being sensation flows over you)…

Produced by the wizard dubmeister Grant Phabao, Captain Détendu's anthem 'Détendu' will bring you calm and serenity, and a better understanding of the French language. Listen at least twice a day for a better results.

Now, mademoiselle and monsieur, let's be 'détendu'!
