Erotic Market is a white neon light in the dark. At first, the eye is aggressively drawn in; then it gets used to the luminous imprint, which is so powerful that, even with eyes closed, it’s the only thing that can be seen. Erotic Market is fluorescent, saturated, dynamic and clashing. It’s as greasy and unsubtle as a tray of fish and chips.
As former N’Relax talent scouts, Marine Pellegrini and Lucas Garnier laid the foundations for Erotic Market in the summer of 2011. A new musical project as striking as it is intangible, Erotic Market bridges the gap between disparate genres, weaving between coldwave, R&B, electronica and trip-hop relics, leading us astray in a maze of deliciously blended pop.
Throwing sharp keyboards, battered drums, lo-fi percussion, aggressive basslines and various unnamed electronic devices into the mix, Erotic Market is equally haunted from start to finish by Marine Pellegrini’s shadowy vocals. With this bold, distinct sound, Erotic Market could be the missing link between Björk and Erykah Badu.
