Mylene Farmer – Part 2

So I have discovered that she is massive in her home country, literally 1000’s of comments and millions of views on Youtube and only until Sunday I’d not heard a single thing by her. But why use that surname ?

XXL (French 12″)

From September ’95 and the harder, almost rave mixes of this track Taken from the album “Anamorphosée.”

The B-side is quite synthpop and commercial.ène+Farmer+-+XXL+(French+12”)+(1995)+(ADG+Rip).zip/file

L’Instant X (Dance Remixes) (French 12″)

From Dec ’95 and a much harder sound, there are guitars (from Jeff Dahlgren)and a more heavy, Industrial beat!

Bertrand Châtenet helps on the remixes, track 2 is a gem, leftfield and with her voice sitting over the noisy backing.

Ramon Zenker (Hardfloor) adds some punchy Tech House mixes on the B-side. Not my cup of tea. His other mix (Last track) adds some Big Beats as it turns into a more Street Hop track, far better.ène+Farmer+-+L’Instant+X+(Dance+Remixes)+(12”)+(1995)+(ADG+Rip).zip/file

Mylene Farmer Et Seal – Les Mots (French 12″)

Being a bit of a Seal fan I didn’t know this duet existed ! From Nov 2001 and it’s a beauty. Very lush arrangement and her fragile voice works well with Seal’s powerful, yet delicate vocals.

The B-side mix is even more delicate, love the strings. Wow!

Another splendid Laurent Boutonnat production (Who I’d not heard of as well)

C’Est Une Belle Journée (Remixes) (LTD Edition French 12″)

From April 2002 and more remixes from Blue Planet Corporation and Starcity (Peter Hoff) Giving the track a Progressive House Groove on track 1 and a funky House feel on the B-side.ène+Farmer+-+C’Est+Une+Belle+Journée+(Remixes)+(12”)+(2002)+(ADG+Rip).rar/file

Pardonne-moi (LTD Edition 12″)

From the album “Les Mots” is this limited edition twelve. Street beats and lush orchestration on the usual studio version. Released Oct 2002

A Trance mix from Jaïa (Yannis Kamarinos and Jean Michel Blanchet) and Blue Planet Corporation (Gabriel Masurel) builds the track but it really needed to break out a bit earlier or be longer!ène+Farmer+-+Pardonne-moi+(Limited+Edition+12”)+(2002)+(ADG+Rip).zip/file

10 thoughts on “Mylene Farmer – Part 2”

  1. Mylene Farmer (On the farm – Huh!) So I agree with Djjedredy. Who, never heard of, and I have seen the name around quite a bit though.

    This Mylene Farmer so is she similar to an Anne Clark with a soul mix, or an Anne Clark / Nina Hagen type mix.

    Wonder if there is a short EP with a few songs that sample her styles or types of music. Desireless in a way maybe?
    ‘ll have to dig into this chick some more……

  2. She has released a best of, named ‘Plus Grandir’ about a year ago, so that would be a good start if you aren’t familiar with her songs 🙂

  3. And she is absolutely famous for heir Videoclips from the 80ies, I remember, MTV was the clips only Playing after 11 p.m, and the Clips has a duration from about 10 Minutes and more ……

  4. Her surname is a reference to Frances Farmer. Actually, in French, “Farmer” doesn’t mean anything (and it’s pronounced as it spelled, not like in English) so it’s OK. I never thought her surname would be a problem 😉

  5. in France, she is the french Madonna, Queen of Pop, famous for her videos & tours + she with L.Boutonnat wrote/produced Alizée’s “moi Lolita” and two first albums.
