With a brand new EP out on the excellent Pantai People label which beautifully merges jazz, house and electronica together into something fresh and essential we asked seriously hot French producer Adrien Calvet to take over the Le Visiteur decks for an hour to showcase his unique style.
You can check out our full EP review here and the premier of his track Riesling below.

We also chatted to Adrien about the mix.
What can you tell us about the theme of the mix and what are some of the key tracks for you?
I made sure to include different genres of electronic music whilst staying in a groovy soulful direction. It was important for me that the mix directly reflects the sound of Le Doigt De Toto EP. 80% of the songs are mine.
How does the mix style here compare to how you would approach a live DJ set?
For me, recording a mix is very different than mixing in a club. When I record a mix, I focus so much on the selection, maybe too much while when I am in the club I go along with the flow of the crowd and the energy that the club brings all together. I am not saying that the selection is not important, it is the most important, but sometimes feeling the music as opposed to thinking whether this track is going to go well with that track can be frustrating. In the club, you only have a couple of minutes to put the following record, it’s quick, immediate, and instantaneous.
Which other artists’ DJ mixes do you find yourself coming back to time and again and do you have a favourite that you gravitate towards?
I love the mixes by the DJs that are not music producers (haha)! I am actually being honest – If I could pick one, I would maybe pick Ben UFO.
Please can recommend a mix for us that way may not have heard and let us know why you like it.
Theo Parrish jazz mix.
It just shows that being a music selector is not just playing electronic music, but is being curious about all the genres.
