We dive into music from the leading women of France’s underground synth pop scene, featuring Nini Raviolette, Deux and X-Ray Pop.

The Minimal Wave founder takes a two-hour trip through ’80s French electronic pop chansons, exploring a rich phase in the country’s underground musical history. Here we celebrate France’s synth pop culture as part of the Red Bull Music Festival Paris, and discover songs from Nini Raviolette, Elli & Jacno, Deux, Kas Product, Lizzy Mercier Descloux, Mary Möör, Mathématiques Modernes and X-Ray Pop.
