      Laurent Garnier -"ABSOLUTELY LOVING IT, - Brilliant trip"


      Juno Records - "Those with a passion for heavyweight electro and Drexciyan sounds have long held French producer Franck Kartell in high regard. He's been working away on the fringes delivering high-grade material for a decade, and finally got round to dropping his debut album, Afterlife, last year.


      Here he delivers a swift follow-up, effortlessly flitting between icy ambience, Vector Lovers style electro-IDM, creepier compositions, and the kind of oddly symphonic, soundtrack-inspired fare that exists to stir the emotions. It's a far more fragile sounding set than some might expect, but no worse for it. While there's little dancefloor material on show, Kartell's downtempo fare is a cut above most of his contemporaries."


      Igloo Magazine - "Rich textures sit with arctic ambience. The gamut is expressed, from despairing depths to elating elegance. Simply put, a great record."


      Clatterbox - "There is a lot of good music around at the moment but this LP "La Jetee d'Orly" by Franck Kartell really stands out for me. It's equal parts rich, deep and atmospheric. A true timeless classic. Really love it... my fav BA release so far I think."

    • Our review of this great release:


      Feedbacks are unanimous about "La Jetée d'Orly" and you won't find a negative word from us as much as we enjoyed this masterpiece! Returning with his second solo outing to date on Bass Agenda Recordings, Franck Kartell (New Flesh Records, Romance Moderne, Ukonx Recordings) signs here an electronic album of high level where he showcases his unlimited propensity to dark atmospheres.

      Besides the fact the album pays homage to Chris Marker's eponymous B&W dystopian film released in 1962, and captures the essence of its short story dealing with a post-nuclear war experiment in time travel, this L.P. marks a turning point on Franck's career and sounds a bit different from his debut album "Afterlife" published last year, on the same label.

      Delivering highly untouchable tunes where the French fuses his Drexciyan influences to his own music, the album offers by far a more introspective approach, halfway between cold and fragile compositions, with a visionary and mature twist: that's why it shouldn't be considered as a follow-up as the French successfully tries to escape from his usual Electro standards, meeting there the latest minimalist concept of Boris Divider, in a totally different style. Perfect balance between sinister tracks calibered for the dancefloor and...Read on!
