Almost two decades have now passed since the release of Sebastien Tellier's most iconic single, 'La Ritournelle' - a stunning, stirring, string-drenched favourite in which fluid pianos, sweeping orchestration and Tellier's eyes-closed vocals ride a typically loose-limbed Tony Allen drumbeat. This reissue pairs the peerless original mix with two 2003 remixes of the cut and a rare 'bonus beat' version that showcases Allen's incredible polyrhythmic drum track. Mr Dan's remix gives the track a slight psychedelic dream-pop vibe - throwing in a few subtle audio references to Smile-era Beach Boys for good measure - while retaining most of the original instrumentation, while the Gilligan Moss interpretation replaces Allen's drumming with a fuzzy, low-slung dub disco groove and a smattering of analogue synth sounds. One of those records that everyone should own a copy of.
