Mlle Caro and Franck Garcia, ‘Pain Disappears’ (Buzzin’ Fly)

For the past few years, minimal German dance music, with its fierce emptiness and slim rhythms, has been a scene with untapped crossover potential. And Mlle Caro, DJ at Paris’ renowned house-music club Rex, and Franck Garcia, a producer/DJ based in the south of France, take advantage of the hypnotic genre’s possibilities. On endlessly listenable tracks about modern love affairs (“Always You,” “Dead Souls”), the pair know exactly how to mate insinuating pop-song moodiness with the beats’ lambent emotional power.
