Perez – Cavernes

13. March 2018

PEREZ is one of the new faces in the French scene and has been so since 2013 when he released a first EP (« Perez », Dirty/Kompakt) and played concerts which caught the attention of the press. Perez claims to have a taste for singular electronic pop and the music he produces certainly is. His records collection has albums by Christophe and Bashung standing next to Pulp and Suicide ones, among productions by the DFA and Kompakt labels.

For his second album "Cavernes" (to be released in February 2018 on his own record label Etoile Distante), PEREZ has collaborated with Berlin producer and friend Strip Steve (Boys Noize, Clone Royal Oak, Waxtefacts). On this one he delivers a particular sound combining a story-telling singing sometimes verging on the fantastic with electronic club music.
But PEREZ does not only write songs. After being artist-in-residency at the Palais de Tokyo (Paris), he made a sound installation in 2014 for the Villa Noailles in Hyères, France ("L'Hôte"). He also composed for the scenographies of contemporary artists Dominique Gonzalez Foerster, Saâdane Afif or Ange Leccia. In 2016 he was awarded by the DRAC and was given the opportunity to compose basing his inspiration on pieces of the collection of the Regional Fund of Contemporary Art. This is how the album "Un album de collection" was released on April 21, 2017.
