The Lava EP

Zappruder Records / Nouvelle New Wave

Street: 04.21

Equateur = Washed Out + Daft Punk

Equateur—French for that imaginary line that separates the Earth’s hemispheres—are a self-proclaimed “Pop Electronique” outfit from Paris. The Lava EP interprets that idea of duality between dark electronics and more airy, soft-voiced chillwave. With three tracks and a remix by Zémaria, this short EP is a taste of something bigger and better going on in nightclubs across France and Europe. If groove-oriented Europop is your life, keep an eye on Equateur and Nouvelle New Wave for the latest wave of French electronic. –Christian Schultz
