Pegase is the stage name for Raphael Pegase, an electro pop artist from France. When we say pop we don’t mean Katy Perry et al – we mean cultured, subtle French pop. He’s just about to release his debut EP ‘Without Reason’ and it’s everything you’d want from French pop; emotional, intelligent, warm and dreamy.
Check the a-side ‘Without Reason’ which sounds a lot like Yuksek’s new direction from his second album, it follows the same path of having synths complimenting the vocals rather than taking centre stage.
Check out the trippy 8-bit remix from Ruckazoid, who morphs the track from warm French pop to funk-step and disco in a blink of an eye.
Equateur turns the a-side into a soaring sing-along anthem. Imagine if Kavinsky made French pop.
Release date: Apr 23, 2012 via Futur.
