Kid Francescoli is the electro-pop project of French musician Mathieu Hocine, known for his breakout track “Moon,” as well as singles “1986,” “You Are Everywhere” (ft. Turbo Goth), and “Run Run.” Today, he shares the album which the tracks were taken, an LP entitled Sunset Blue, available now via streaming services.

Sunset Blue was produced by French79, mixed by Stan Neff (Polo & Pan, Kungs, Christine and the Queens), and mastered by Alex Gopher (Daft Punk, The Blaze, Bon Entendeur). The record, as indicated with this first track, is a new turning point between organic and electronic, both a mediterranean travel and a Californian dream, a bridge between Ennio Morriconne and modern electronic music.

“Music has this magical power to broaden your vision of the world. It’s fascinating because, like dreams, it’s the kind of irrational things science can’t explain and that makes life exciting.”

Planets aligned perfectly on this project and thanks to this five star cast of collaborators, Kid Francescoli achieved his personal holy grail: he orchestrated a great 21st century pop-music album. SUNSET BLUE is a new turning point between organic and electronic, both a mediterranean travel and a Californian dream, a bridge between Ennio Morriconne and modern electronic music.

Also, while it might be called SUNSET BLUE in honor of the sea and the Portuguese / Brazilian concept called “saudade,” but it is a really optimistic album, whose true colors would rather be “yellow-orange-red” in nod to the sun.

Created in the midst of the world tour, SUNSET BLUE is a direct result of the lives’ energy and fans’ joyful vibes: going back in the studio after smiling, singing and dancing with people all around the world inevitably gave Kid Francescoli the desire to retranscribe this ecstatic feeling in music. This album is a sensitive experience, from sunrise to sunset, from first track to last one. It’s an exploration of an everlasting summer, reaching its climax in the very final seconds of the track “Corsica,” making us want to press play and dive into this jewel all over again. A beautiful cosmic trip, whether you like to stay in bed cocooning, to travel far, far away or to dance ‘till dawn, to catch the first rays of light.
