ECHO – WE DANCE THE SAME

(I-TUNES EXCLUSIVE)

I was born in 1971 but my musical life started in the 90's when I played guitar or bass in several pop bands in bordeaux. I was quite active in that scene but never  part of any release. Actually i had pleasure playing with other people but always felt that i wanted to do something on my own. I bought a four-track recorder in 93 or 94 and that's the real beginning of my writing and of my  frustration. because i wanted many more possibilities to record. I wanted not to be limited and put as many instruments as i wanted....which was impossible. and at the same time recordings weren’t that easy.

So i had some moments of discouragement....

I moved to toulouse in ‘97. I stopped playing music, but kept on listening to stuff. I started to open my ears to funk, hip hop, dance music, bossa and met dj's. All kind of stuff that i didn't listen to when i was in bordeaux. I stopped even touching any guitar during like 5 years....but in 2002 2003 I played in a new band. This meeting was important because even if the music was classical (2 guitars, bass, drum) the guys i was playing with made me discover the possibilities of using a computer...especially for recordings. We played like two years, I bought myself a computer. And I took again the project I had left with my 4-tracks recorder in bordeaux 7 years ago. We split but my friends are still helping me to manage with my f*****g computer.

But what boosted me for my music was, I must recognize, myspace and the possibilities of being listened to. I registered last May. At the time I could hardly play it even to my friends and in several months I had thousands of listeners and some contacts with people. I recorded a first demo in june-july that I sent to labels I had contacts with...and had a proposition in September to release an ep with an english brand new netlabel « Criminal recordz ». actually it was 7 tracks released in November. That's when WLM made their proposal : a track on EB3 and an itunes album.....

So in november december I recorded again other stuff that are the tracks that finally will be on itunes.... I must say that now i'm always recording and playing stuff. Thanx to the Internet I can record music and make it listened to very easily. I don't have frustrations anymore. At the opposite I feel more motivated than ever...I want to do videos as well, stupid ones if possible...with youtube I started to put them online...but this is another story !.....

actually i love the net, it's such a good playground....and hope that other good things are going to happen to me.
