"Interesting solo debut EP (10 tracks, 47 minutes)from this Parisian musician-fellow-personality, producer of Tony Allen's 'comeback' LP Black Voices (on the Comet Label), in fact Tony's loose-limbed drumming is featured sporadically throughout this EP as well. L also worked with Franco-Hip-Hoppers Asassin, Les Negresses Vertes, scored tracks for the SourceLab and Freezone comps (forging a direct link to the 'New French New Wave'). An interesting mix of electric Miles-era instrumentation (Rhodes, analog sequences, many layers of oscillating synths, loose drumming, fuzz bass, machine sounds) processed by a boatload of VST plugins rendering all of these 'natural' sounds quite digital/alien in the process. Occasional spoken overtones bring the alpha factor down a little but overall quite impressive, especially given it's major-label status. The best introduction to this guy's sound world, retro but still highly technology-oriented, an odd paradigm." -- Hrvatski.
