When French fashion designer Vanessa Seward launched her summer collection earlier in the year, the catwalk show was accompanied by previously unheard music from Bertrand Burglat's Tricatel label. This expansive EP showcases those tracks, many of which seem to have been inspired by the designer herself. Check, for example, Burglat's two-part "Vanessa's Way", which gleefully joins the dots between vintage lounge music, easy listening disco and the rubbery bottom-end bounce of dub disco. Chassol's "En Femme Francaise", featuring a delicious bilingual spoken word vocal and Air style lounge music flourishes, explores similar territory, while Anita Lane's "Do That Thing" is a prime chunk of sleazy, string-laden disco. Arguably best of all, though, is the rip-roaring disco-punk madness of Burglat's heavyweight "Lightyears (Cool & Bright Vanessa)".
