Casanova 70 is a Record Store Day 2016 exclusive release from French electronica duo AIR, released via Parlophone Records.

At its outset, AIR (an acronym for "Amour, Imagination, Rêve" - French for love, imagination, dream) was a one‑person project started by Nicolas Godin when he was asked by a childhood friend to write a song for a compilation to be released by Source, a small French independent label. "Modulor Mix", a tribute to Le Corbusier, appeared on the Source Lab album in 1995.

Following this small success, Godin asked his friend Jean-Benoît Dunckel, a classically trained pianist, to join him in AIR. Together, they produced further singles for Source, such as "J'ai Dormi Sous L'eau", "Les Professionnels", "Casanova 70" and "Le Soleil Est Près De Moi". Finally, in 1997, AIR were asked to record an album. Its mixture of synths, strings and guitar made it a unique release in the electronica genre at the time, and led the duo's debut album Moon Safari to become a UK Platinum selling album.

Released as a 2016 Record Store Day exclusive, Casanova 70 features two of AIR's classic tracks "Casanova 70" and "Les Professionnels", and is pressed on 140g clear vinyl with blue, red, and yellow splatters, in a thick transparent sleeve with a Japanese style sash on the side.

Casanova 70 was originally released in 1996 as a lead 12" single from their debut EP Premiers Symptômes, which in itself consisted of early singles released between 1995 and 1997.

This is a Limited Edition 2016 Record Store Day Release, a 12" EP at 33 ⅓ RPM on 140 Gram Clear Vinyl with Blue, Red & Yellow Splatters, Limited to 5,000 Copies , housed in a clear plastic master bag, pressed in Europe.
