"La Ritournelle" is undoubtedly Sebastien Tellier's biggest song. Since its first release in 2003, it kept growing and circulating throughout the world year after year like a virus. Considered by many as the ultimate love anthem of the 21st century, the song has now infected numerous hearts and lovers, and gained a classic status.

The song is made of 7 epic minutes of a sensual and mesmerizing piano hook, with the late afro-beat maestro Tony Allen on drums, lush romantic strings, Philippe Zdar on the mix, and a heartbreaking lyric at the center of the song that goes:

"Oh nothing's going to change my love for you / I wanna spend my life with you
So we make love on the grass under the moon / No one call tell, damned if I do
Forever journey on golden avenues / I drift in your eyes since I love you
I got that beat in my veins for only rule / Love is to share, mine is for you"

It was sampled by 'The Weeknd' for the song on "Kiss Land" (2013) and used in several long feature films. "La Ritournelle": often been copied and covered, but rarely equaled.

For the first time, Record Makers is releasing the song with its most successful remixes on one EP, and a special gift in memory of his genius: Tony Allen's bonus beat, the original drum track, a must have for DJs. Also included: Gilligan Moss' mix, an atmospheric remix and a streaming hit, and Mr Dan's Magic Wand mix, the chorus/verse version of "La Ritournelle", basically "Unfinished Sympathy pt. II", according to the NME.
