What’s your earliest ‘musical’ memory?
Basically… me looking for some good sounds in my father's CD collection. It was mainly Rock, Funk and Disco.
What was it that drove you to get into the music industry?
One day, I saw a Facebook post about Grenoble based record label “Carton-Pâte Records” encouraging young producers to send them over some demos, so I told myself “why not!” and a little later I was releasing an EP on their imprint. I already had several opportunities to release my music with other record labels before that happened, but I never went through it. I did not see any point really, they were all talking about money and stuff, but my goal was not to sell my music to make money, but more to bring some attention on my music.
Who have been the most influential people in your musical development?
I have always admired Laurent Garnier as a DJ of course, but also as a person, through his book, his interviews and all that. I always liked his way of seeing things in general. At the time, I loved his show “It Is What It Is”, and I am so glad it is finally back on!
Who inspires you outside of music?
Mostly feelings. Happiness, sadness, travelling, etc. Inspiration is not something I am able to explain though. It comes and goes, without me knowing when or why really…
What are the biggest three challenges facing you at this moment in time?
Answering this interview, Traveling & working less
What is the best event you’ve appeared at and why?
The Rocktambule Festival, in Grenoble. I played on the smaller stage, but it is such a great memory. I did not have a lot of time unfortunately, but hey, I played and it was great. My manager thought I would go well with the line-up, so we sent the organization team a message. And it appeared that they though so as well.
If you could collaborate with ANYONE in the world (past or present) who would it be and why?
I don’t know… It is a little bit like about inspiration. Sometimes it works with some people, you are able to get things done, sometimes you don’t. But I would say Moderat, Jon Hopkins, or Max Cooper. When I listen to their music, I always think to myself “Should I keep making music or not?!” :)
If you weren’t in the music game, what game would you be playing?
I would be an astronaut, what else :)
Who gives you the most support in your life and work?
My friends. And all the people that listens to my music, obviously. But mostly my friends.
If you only had 3 months to live, what would you want to do with them?
I would want to travel, and to get together with my family, and my friends.
Tell us a little bit about the mix you have done for us?
I tried to put together a selection of music that I like, that I like playing, a little bit of everything. I kept that melodic side of my music though. Also, the very last track will be out pretty soon by the way!
Any messages for our readers?
My next EP will be released on February 29th on Carton-Pâte Records. There will also be a track of mine coming out on Tulipa Recordings. I also have several gigs lined-up, including one pretty far away from France… Not telling much as it is not 100% confirmed yet, so stay tuned! ;)
Keep listening underground music and stay tuned for my next EP ;)
