La Vie Sauvage, accompanied by his musical partner Emma fuses various influences like the hyperviolence of Gaspar Noé, the XX’s minimalism and Crystal Castles’ melancholy.
After his first album, which found great appeal within the synthpop scene, he has transformed his music into a more personal and mature sound. Next to this body of work, he has also completed his first EP, with hints of Trent Reznor and French House, to play in his DJ sets.
Pastel Wasteland, on ‘I Thrive in Chaos’:
Bouncy keys underscore a driving bassline and electronic murmurs in the brilliant ‘I Thrive In Chaos’. Immediately
gripping, the crushed synths envelope the soundscape, battling with cutting percussion and distorted instrumentation. Plucky and textured, this is a superb slice of synthwave from a very promising producer.
Comeherefloyd, on ‘Melanchomania’:
Rhythms of beats to an end. An intransigent volcano in emotive suggestions.
