Track is so dreamy and mesmerising, the vocal really trance you through the track and the bass movement just gives such a intense groove that adds to the lovely percussion. Love it <3 Big up La Dame and Goldie B 🔥
Favorite track: Watcha Gonna Do (feat. Goldie B).
"For my fourth EP (my first on YUKU), I was heavily inspired by "furtives" — polymorphous urban creatures that metabolize everything they touch, from Alain Damasio's science-fiction novel named "Les Furtifs". As a big reader, I love trying to create bridges between music and literature. My passions are music and languages. Through my music, I aim to create universes while questioning textures, traditional rhythms, and the boundaries of club music. Through languages, I tend to understand Alterity and perspectives of others on our world.
I'm trying my best for my productions being risky and surprising, touching on different styles, cultures, and languages, while connecting percussion, warm sounds, and exploration. My goal is always to reach polyglottism, joy and dialogue.
With "Vuvuzela", a track wrapped in a 'hard drum' beat celebrating the nightlife in the city, I highlighted rhythm. Through a work on different sounds like triangle, glass, birds whistle and a deep bass, I wanted to illustrate a night walk as if I could both fly and crawl quickly in the streets, walls, undergrounds. "Whatcha Gonna Do" is a grime-y collaboration with my friend and artist Goldie B, and it wanders in a secret, and oriental universe. Her voices reminds me of witch, questioning your soul and caring with mysterious brew - elements that I found as well in the sample of Arabic women voices in the instrumental. The last track, "On Wheel", is enriched with the participation of percussionist Cyril Atef — it's a call for dancing and club enthusiasm with a UK funky feeling : I worked with this fabulous drummer before, and every time it's a fantastic explosion of solar energy."
