The Air Up There


Air are up there. They are, in my opinion, the premier French ambient electronic act, and have been so for the last decade - perhaps you could say the chill out version of Daft Punk. And finally, Air are coming to Australia for the very first time. Down for the V Festival, here in Melbourne they are playing a little side show at the Palais on Wednesday the 2nd of April.

You can get presale tickets from ticketmaster until 5pm tomorrow (special code 'amour') for $99, much better than the $128 you will have to fork out afterwards (you're welcome).

This is the first Air song I ever heard, back in the day on Recovery one Sunday morning 10 years ago. It's one of those childhood memories that makes me smile when I'm doing nothing. The film clip had me entranced. They released Pocket Symphony, their fourth album, last year.

Great post what with Moon Safari about to get it's 10 year anniversary re-release. But what is this mix, where did it come from? Easily the best version I've ever heard so thanks again!

Thank you very much, and very good question!

If I'm not mistaken, I believe it is simply an extended version of the original which was on the 'Kelly Watch The Stars' single release all those years ago.
