Biography

It begins with an intense, warm gust, a balmy summer breeze, caressing and sensual… “Joy” is the opening track of Shazz’s new album. The voice of Shazz’s partner and friend for more than 15 years – Alex C, his spiritual brother – glides with the usual emotion over a blanket of strings and jazz-inspired chords. This really is the ideal way to begin our journey through Shazz’s new album, the record he dreamt of for so long, the one that suggests that for every path, there is finally a very logical destination.

A perfect landing in the love-struck country of ultra-sensitive pop. Shazz writes songs and he is proud of it. Filled with new strength, the artist and the producer finally got together on this record, almost like the first for Shazz. The beat and sound give an idea of the highly polished, calculated terrain of this new creative venture for a man who was a pioneer and scout in the world of electronic music. Shazz has always tended towards the melodic and slightly melancholic side of the genre, which is far too readily associated with partying and infinite, hypnotic, robotic invention. So “This Rhythm Sound” accurately resumes Shazz’s message, with his constant desire to construct his music within the constraints of pop spontaneity.

Voices too were needed to convey the direction and meanings of Shazz’s inspiration. Deborah Parker had the voice that Shazz had always been searching for, a voice made for jazz standards that he would turn to the trembling delights of soul and R&B. Deborah Parker, a white songstress, sings with all the power of a black soul.

    Un des artistes electro de la scene française le plus discret mais le plus abouti. Une musique super subtile, une production poussée à l'extreme. Son site sur Myspace est aussi classe que sa musique (voir www.myspace.com/shazzmusic). J'attends avec impatience son nouvel album annoncé pour cette année. Bref, je suis un fan!
