” I just wanted to say how amazingly good your album is. It’s very consistent but a unique sound. Unpretentious, good songs, diverse collection and it doesn’t fall into a rut or repeat itself or use a formula. I think it is a bit special! Potential cult album I’d say if enough people turn on to it … “
Nick Hollywood, Freshly Squeezed Music (Brighton, UK)
” A myriad of styles, in an exquisite Vintage mixing pot of Soul, Blues and Swing influenced Disco, Breaks and Hip Hop ! “

Back in 2014, I decide to leave Europe. In few months, I will go back to New Caledonia where I grew up. Summer 2014, I travel all over Europe, select ideas and share them with my friends, musicians and singers. I record on the road using a laptop, a soundcard and a single microphone. I spend some time in the french Alps with la Sherpa family and take time to think about the album concept while enjoying beautiful nature.
In September, I spend two weeks in Venezia with a music producer named Stabfinger. Within this time period I get a better idea of what I want for the album. I get to see how my friend works and get a lot of inspiration from him.
In december in fly back to New Caledonia after 16 years. The small country has changed a lot and music is everywhere : kaneka (local music), reggae, hip hop, electro … exciting!
In 2016, I settle in the countryside and become a music teacher in a small village. I work hard on the album and hopefully get a lot of inspiration from the kids at school. I spend a lot of time with my guitar into nature, composing and re-arraging some tunes. The album is nearly there, but not yet what’s on my mind.
Ultimately… 2017! I settle down in Nouméa and finish my album. I’m back again behind the desks and enjoy to select good music after few years off. I also work on bringing the album on stage.
” Really impressed man, such a great listen. Until now I didn’t hear beginning to end unbroken, but now! Simply great. It reminds me a lot of the things I used to DJ & listen at home, a lot of early inspirations in there. Super dope, I like it a lot! Top work maestro.”
