You need this album, you want this album, you will have this album

Valerie stalwart and Reagan-Era bellwether College, has proven once again that the French are still furiously honing the bleeding edge of electronic music. Moving on from the widely praised and wonderously laconic film Drive, College delivers to the world of 2013 a new album, Heritage.

Heritage is a continuation of the winsome melodies David Grellier effortessly carves. A driving sonic memory to the pioneering composers and compositions of a nascent digital age. A time defined by the sudden explosion of personal computing, waveform synthesis, and fantastic new genres. It seems as if Grellier is the oracle of a shared yet obscure memory of 1984. He taps into a time when the fading afterglow of disco gently nurtured to maturity genres such as house and electro. When the drummer became the programmer, and the vocalist became increasingly laconic.

Thus, here we are today tapping our toes to the reflective drum patterns. A pulsing bassline hearking us to a past life. Hopelessly drawn inward by the lush yet dated feelings. I suggest doing yourself a favor. Attend to the sounds of College.

Woohoo!

So happy for a new College album!

One In Tens Of Thousands Of The Same

In 2007, College (aka David Grellier) first emerged onto France's electronic music scene by co-founding The Vallerie Collective, an indie record label and coop of electronic musical artists characterised by a "romantic blend of 1980s inspired electro". Coincidentally since then, electronic music's popularity has surged to the masses and established itself as mainstream. Consequently, artists and DJ's are over abundant and much of what's produced now sounds generic. Héritage on the other hand, College's third full album release continues to build upon the distinctive synthesized signature sound established with the first two albums (Secret Diary & Northern Council) and EPs (Teenage Color & A Real Hero). Here again as with previous releases, College succeeds at synthesizing into the music perceptions of light and color, illusions of self-motion and dream-like adolescent emotions from another era. However, Héritage differs in that it brings additional fluidity and maturity to the experience that transcends "the 1980's" into the future.

Biography

Genre: Dance

Years Active: '00s, '10s

When not performing under the pseudonym Mitch Silver in the group Sexy Sushi or heading the label/collective Valerie, French electronica artist David Grellier records music as College. Built on pure nostalgia for the '80s synth pop of his youth, Grellier recorded two full-lengths (Secret Diary and Northern Council) and two EPs (Teenage Colour and A Real Hero) before the world took notice when "A Real Hero" was used in the retro-sounding soundtrack of the Ryan Gosling film Drive in 2011.
