She’s Drunk – inspiration
March 5, 2018
As an introduction to She’s Drunk musical universe, we’ve asked him how he came to electronic music. Here’s his explanation, in 6 tracks.
Daft Punk – Rollin’ & Scratchin’
This track might be the one that hooked me up with electronic music in the first place. I remember when I heard it the first time at a friend’s place when it came out I was really shocked. It was very innovative at this time. And this distorted and obsessive synth!! I was really wondering how you could make something sound like this, It kind of triggered my curiosity for electronic music.
Mr Oizo – Half A Scissor
For a very long time I’ve been a huge fan of Mr Oizo. For me he is one of the rare producer who has a very strong sound identity that you can recognize after listening just a few second. This album and this track in particular has fascinated me and inspired me to start sampling. I still love and play this track in my set sometimes nowadays. The whole album is a masterpiece of deconstruction.
Jackson And His Computer Band – Utopia
This song (and the entire album ‘Smash’) has an important role in my musical journey. I was listening to it when I started to discover some new facets of electronic music with labels like Warp Records or Ninja Tune for instance. It’s one of the record I’ve listened the most back then and it’s been a big inspiration for me as a producer even if it’s not really noticeable in my music. For me it sounds like nothing else and still sounds fresh today. There is an astonishing amount of great ideas in each songs of the album, another masterpiece in my opinion!
Yello – Planet Dada
I like this song a lot first because it’s related to a dear friend of mine who made me discover it and also because it’s YELLO!! One of the most underrated and innovative band from the late 80’s, early 90’s. A weird electro/pop/club piece with stuttering digital vocals, very inspiring.
Aphex Twin – Windowlicker
I started to listen to Aphex Twin when I got tired of the underground rave party movement in the mid 00’s in France. I needed to find something more exciting, open-minded in electronic music than only 4/4 strict hardcore techno. Windowlicker has been a great slap to my ears, this breakbeat, electronica craziness blended with R&B felt really new for me and kind of showed me that the possibilities were unlimited in electronic music. It’s been a very refreshing track.
Dizzee Rascal – I luv U
‘I Luv U’ opened me to a new realm of electronic music that I had no idea about. At this time I had no internet at home so it was difficult to discover new music. I didn’t even know it was called grime, for me it was just a super bad-ass rap song. It fascinated me because it was the first time I was hearing a saturated hardcore techno drum kick used in a very different way.
