Music! Valerie: Inner City Justice + Outrunners

It’s raining right now in beautiful, sunny Florida…as usual, making me think of nothing more than Valerie, an amazing label and collections of artists (College, Russ Chimes, The Outrunners, Anoraak, and more) based out of France.

I haven’t visited the Valerie blog in a while and that’s my own big mistake. It’s been a while since I had my fix of what I call “space-disco” or 80s space-synth. Turns out there was something actually referred to as space-disco in the 70s-80s. Whatever you want to call it, it’s amazing and beautiful.

Upon revisiting the Valerie blog, I discovered three tracks by Inner City Justice, described as “A musical play in three acts which takes care of its direction and plunges us in the heart of a disturbing and mysterious affair.” They are to be listened to in the following order.

Inner City Justice – Chase
Inner City Justice – Vilains Theme
Inner City Justice – Windy Night

As a couple of added bonuses, here is the latest mixtape by The Outrunners and an older fave of mine featuring 3 Valerie artists.

College – Fantasy Park ft. Anarook (Moulinex Remix)

Outrunners – Love & Money Mixtape

The Outrunners – Diamonds (extract from forthcoming EP on Flexx)
Alden Tyrell  – Knockers
Mirage – One more chance
Depeche Mode – Nodisco
M’Black – Heartbreak (Diamond Cut remix)
Plastiscines – Barcelona (Lifelike remix)
Legowelt – Disco Rout
Chromeo – Night by night
