Biography

Stupeflip is a French group between punk, rap and variety composed of King Ju (Julien Barthélémy), Pop Hip, Cadillac (Stéphane Bellenger) and MC Salo (Jean-Paul Michel).

In 2000, a strange name -Stupeflip was going around in Paris on a peculiar mix-tape. On the 6th of November 2001, they go in the studio to transform the mix-tape into a promotional Single that will already contain the essence of the group. This first release notably includes the overt “Stupeflip”, and “comme les zot”; seven titles in all, where King Ju pens texts and music with the participation of Cadillac.

The funny and effective title “Je fume pu d’shit” starts to air on Parisian radios. Eventually they sign on Vorston Limanteli, an independent label bought some months later by BMG and, at the end of 2002, they release their first album: -Stupeflip.

The album, very much like the first EP, contains an uncategorizable sound: a mixture of angry guitar riffs akin to Bérurier Noir (Stupeflip also emulates their masks), samples of Hip Hop, Californian punk, pop jingles (inspired by French 80’s pop), and strange noises (Stupeflip was often compared to The Residents, an ambient experimental band).

Through their songs, they present the mythical history of the C.R.O.U., a mysterious organization founded in 1972, consisting of 3 members, here to “terrorize the population and thereby create a new era”, “the era of Stup”. Stupeflip is only the tip of the iceberg of the C.R.O.U. (-“an ‘outgrowth’ of the C.R.O.U.”).
