An intimate solo performance followed by conversation with Malik Djoudi.
« You know, I’m not afraid of anything, apart from the void, that might trouble my future. »
No, Malik Djoudi is not afraid of anything and his first album fills a void in the French scene. The romanticism of a dandy who’s not too sure of himself, bringing to mind Christophe, Sébastien Tellier and William Sheller; a voice that floats in the air like Connan Mockasin; the muted melodic intensity which hits a nerve like Blonde Redhead; the intimacy that James Blake seems to do so well. And words in French that he handles gracefully and candidly, set to an equally pared down electro pop backdrop.
