On Nuit Panic, his first solo album for ten years, the incisive and hypnotic melodies of “Face” and “Prince of the Cook", interpreted by David, or “Dark Candies” sung by the Berlin artist Aga Wilk, evoke his obsession for disco italo and the seductive tones of the synth-pop of New Order or Depeche Mode. The martial beats and hypnotic synth lines of “Come Here Come Down", “Destination love” or “In case of emergency", recall the sound of the cold and percussive electronics of the EBM, a music nourished by the nihilism of punk and the metallic sounds of the industrial current, which had then invented Front 242 or Nitzer Ebb. However, on this fourth solo album, let us specify that the French musician is never satisfied with pasticher the music of yesterday. Let’s say it draws its DNA, vocabulary and of course some of its instruments, especially its favorite synthesizer, the Sequential Circuits Pro One as well as the Korg MS-20, synthesizers formerly used by Vince Clark, DAF or Dangerous Liaisons.
