Air France – Collapsing At Your Doorstep (2008)

Air France

Featuring on 2008’s No Way Down EP, ‘Collapsing at Your Doorstep’ was not the first Air France track to make a mark. The Swedish duo’s breakout single ‘Beach Party’ had already established their atmospheric, ‘balearic’ credentials. ‘Collapsing at Your Doorstep’ goes several steps further by offering a soundscape of tropical sounds, congas, horns, strings, bird tweets and a little kid’s voice “Are you done mixing yet?’’. (Zomby would go onto sample the latter on his classic Where Were U In ’92? LP.) The resulting sound evokes The Avalanches’ Since I Left You, which is high praise.
