Rone "Tasty City"
Pioneer of ambient electronic music Jean Michel Jarre recently curated a selection of both old and new tunes from the catalogue of Lyon-based imprint InFiné to create InFiné by JMJ, a 14-track compilation released today. According to Jarre, his interest in the label lies in its ability to release a variety of boundary pushing sounds that somehow manage to share a common ground. "InFine? is in that league of labels displaying the kind of audacity only to be found in true artists," said Jarre. "Like the musicians it represents, it has kept on demonstrating how important it is to have a common vision, a common ambition in order to initiate and finalize groundbreaking projects." One of the tracks curated by Jarre is Rone's "Tasty City," a compelling production from his debut album, Spanish Breakfast. Although it was originally released in 2009, the song remains a product of Rone's inventive imagination, something far superior than a snapshot of what musical trends were popular at the time. And for many people who have never heard the track, it will sound entirely fresh, as Rone explores a variety of genres on "Tasty City"—ranging from tech-house to ambient—without ever settling on one.
