毎年恒例ながら、今年はコロナ感染拡大で「Toru ll Toru」のDJパーティーが1か月延期になり、ひと月遅れの発表となった2020年の上半期ベスト・アルバム50枚。実は6月半ばに僕が選曲/パーソナリティーのdublab.jp suburbia radioで特集するためにベスト50を選出していたが(アーカイヴ放送で聴けます)、それ以降のリリース作も5枚加え、順位も多少入れかえた。No.1もその時点ではNNAMDÏを選んでいたが、“Black Lives Matter”運動と共に永遠に記憶されるべき季節、ということを踏まえ、その時代の鼓動を胸に刻みたいという思いをこめSaultとした。
「usen for Cafe Apres-midi」サマー・セレクションの特番のためにやはり6月半ばにセレクトしていた上半期ベスト300曲のリストも、直近のフェイヴァリット60曲を加え、計360曲としてリストアップしている。EPでは何と言ってもフランスの女性シンガー・ソングライターMaë Defaysの『Whispering』、そして10曲入りながらもEP扱いだというアナログ盤のダブル・ジャケットも素晴らしいBibioの『Sleep On The Wing』、去年の愛聴盤『PDA』に続くManatee Communeの『Crescent Lake』、El Búhoによる「Memoria」のリミックスを12インチで最もDJプレイしたDJ Raffの『Resistencia Remixes』、Good Mellowsコンピ・シリーズでよくライセンスしてもらっているNuNorthern Soulレーベルの夏に向けたお楽しみ企画『Summer Selections Two』などをよく聴いた。
思えば2020年は、正月休みからアメリカとイランが武力衝突の危機を迎え、重苦しく不穏な空気に包まれていた。そんな気分さえも少し晴れるような、爽やかな甘い風を運んでくれたのが、正月三が日にリリースされたMaë Defaysの清々しくグルーヴィーな新曲「Balcony」だった。パリのアパルトマンの屋上のバルコニーで撮られたMVも素敵で、僕が最も大切にしたい「音楽のある風景」が描かれていた。僕のこの半年間の唯一のコンパイル作品となった、カフェ・アプレミディ20周年記念コンピ『Cafe Apres-midi Bleu』に、瑞々しい“Balcony Vibes”が心地よいこの曲を収録できたことを、とても嬉しく思う。
