From a discarded CDR, rediscovered in a dark corner in a sun kissed flea market in Versailles we bring you some rare and unheard personal edits from the archives of the city’s Pierre Yves Marie. A name not familiar to many, Pierre was a locally known DJ and switched-on music lover whose interests in Disco, Italo, HI-NRG and early house sounds led him to visit the USA — particularly the midwest — numerous times throughout the late 80’s and early 90’s. It was here, inspired by the DJ’s he heard firsthand in Chicago, Detroit and other places he visited that he became inspired to create his own versions and mixes of tracks to play at his small Disco parties at the city’s «Les Caves Du Roi», an intimate club space that allowed Pierre to create his own atmosphere where he attracted a hedonistic, stylish and very mixed crowd to hear him play. These edits were rediscovered a few years back, languishing in a shoebox at said flea-market, dumped after Pierre’s struggles with the ‘party life’ in the late 1990’s and he was eventually tracked down via some solid detective work and local knowledge. He has, after much discussion, very kindly allowed a limited amount of these unique DJ tools to be pressed onto wax. Being a keen follower of technology, he had originally transferred his reels and tape edits onto CDR’s in the early 1990’s, which lends a lo-fi and raw vibe to these edits. We feel this surely adds charm and beauty to these roughly hewn personal mixes and we are lucky to be able to share in this small piece of history.
