La Fine Equipe’s Top 5 Influences Playlist

Blending enticing, off-beat grooves to stunning effect, the French hybrid electronic collective La Fine Equipe are riding high after the success of their new album 5th Season released earlier this year. The crew return with a trippy, animated video clip for the title track 5th Season featuring fellow Parisian beat smith Fakear and let out their top five favourite tracks that have shaped their sound to this day.

La Fine Equipe’s Top 5 Influences Playlist:

Daft Punk :  Aerodynamic

One a the french touch classic’s, we’ve all been very influenced by daft’s sound, this one is a part of Interstella 5555, awesome animated project.

C2C : Delta

One of the best turntable crew in France and the world, we’re friends, they are like big brothers to us, and showed us the way to play our music live.

Birdy Nam Nam : Parachute Ending

Same as C2C, game changers in the beatmaking/turntablism french scene. Pioneers in sound, very powerful songs and live show. The music video has been a big influence when creating ours, we love the aesthetic similar to Fantastic Planet directed by René Laloux, Music from Alain Goraguer. A Must Seen.

Flying Lotus Feat Anderson .Paak : More

Big influence for our crew, one of our favorite producer, we also love Anderson . Paak. This track with 2 artists that we like the most is a killer. The “post apocalyptic” music video is also representative of what we had in mind for 5th Season music video.

Madvillain : All caps

Produced by Madlib, one of the best beatmaker in the world. Huge influence, as well as several Stone Throw artists. Doom at his best, the album is a classic.
