Biography

Dao Dezi is a co-production of Eric Mouquet (one half of the Deep Forest duo) and Guilain Joncheray (executive producer of Deep Forest’s debut album).

Dao Dezi, meaning ‘come on’ or ‘move it’, is a term from the Celtic language of France called Breton. What makes the Dao Dezi production so intriguing is that Mouquet has arranged and incorporated some traditional Breton folk-songs sung by a variety of male voices specially invited to sing on the album. None of the lead vocals are sampled, as is often the case with other groups of this genre.

These vocals are placed upon uptempo synthesiser backings, making for a wonderful clash between the very organic voices and the electronic dance beats (as Deep Forest have expertly displayed on their albums).

Other traditional Celtic instruments such as the Uillean Pipes (the Irish Bag Pipes), Bag Pipes, Bombarde, Hautbois and a number of others also enjoy solos within the songs. The music is always very impressive and grand, with the album exploring many emotions from sadness to joy.

The first single off the album is the dance remixes of the rare La Jument de Mishao which was only released in France. However the follow-up single was the 7 minute long epic Ti Eliz Iza, the best song from the album.

Two versions of the album were released, the one most readily availble is subtitled World Mix and includes various dance remixes of some of the tracks (mostly remixes of Ti Eliz Iza).
