This gig happened on Wednesday but I’ve been so busy this is the first chance I’ve been able to put a couple of pictures up. This man is a musical legend in my eyes. I think he was as confused as we all were during this set, but whatever sounds came out of the speakers was genius.

Dark French synth pop. What better way to start the week! Check out here.


New Music: Symphony Hall

Symphony Hall is a one-time moniker of DJ/Producers Riton and Canblaster. They’ve come up with a sound that could pass as classic N*E*R*D. It’s infectiously synthy and heavy. Check out here.


Live: Christophe Willem at Bush Hall

I’ve been to Bush Hall more times than I can remember (I even based my university dissertation on the place), but I don’t think I’ve seen it so beautifully lit up as it was tonight. Such a great show, and the crowd there was loving every minute of it. This was French pop at it’s most fabulous and campest. Check him out!


Interview: Quickfire with Christophe Willem

 

Christophe Willem is somewhat of a household name in his native France  after selling over a million copies of his debut, Inventaire.

To celebrate the launch of his new record (above), he’s playing a show in London on November 28th at the magnificent Bush Hall in West London.

Here’s a quick few questions I threw at him ahead of the gig, to which you can still get tickets for!

For people outside of France who may not have heard of you, how did you become such a well known French pop star?

It all happened by coincidence as I got applied to the Nouvelle Star (French Idol) in 2005 and it developed quickly from there.

Did you anticipate the success that came with your debut album?

To be honest – not at all, I was at that time at university, joined the show, did win and boom my life changed and sold almost 1 million copies of the debut album, went on my first tour etc. All came so quickly and by surprise.

How do you feel you have evolved musically since your debut album?

Always changing, I was always more influenced by international music than by french variety, every album I try something new and the next one – who knows. I love to change.

What has been your favourite song to sing live?

I have two – ‘Human Nature’ by Michael Jackson and ‘Why’ by Eurythmics, loving Annie Lennox.

Are you looking forward to performing at Bush Hall? Where has been your favourite place to perform in?

This is my first show ever in London and I love tp play in a venue like the Bush Hall, great size, great atmosphere and I do like the artists that perform there. Very much looking forward to it!

French disco to start the week

What is it about French disco that makes people so happy? This remix of Killtronic’s ‘Paris La Nuit’ by Tétré is a perfect way to start the week.
