J’ai découvert la musique de Sonns il y a 3 mois par hasard sur le net. Le seul truc qui m’est sorti de la tête à ce moment là a été “t’as raté des wagons.”
Après avoir écouté en boucle toute une soirée son Soundcloud (avec pourtant des remixes de Kasper Bjorke et DC Salas, que je pensais suivre régulièrement!), je me suis demandé si je n’étais pas un peu trop souvent dehors à prendre des photos, au détriment des découvertes que j’aimais bien faire pour ce blog.

Alors Sonns (de son vrai nom Alexandre Mouracade) est un producteur français qui habite Los Angeles depuis tout gamin.
J’ai vu qu’il avait crée son propre label, qu’il est connecté avec beaucoup de djs en Europe (ça sert de voir les amis en commun sur Facebook), que quand il mixe régulièrement dans les soirées Making Shapes (réputée en Californie pour être les meilleures soirées électro) ou au Mexique, c’est avec Rebolledo, Matias Aguayo, Ewan Pearson ou - excusez du peu - DJ Harvey, et que même Pitchfork commençait à parler de ses remixes, bref, je me suis dit que c’était le bon moment pour vous le présenter.

A friend talked to me about this young french girl last year, then I started to listen to her tracks, often played by my favorite english djs or Ivan Smagghe. I met this summer Zombies in Miami and I know they worked together too… But each time she played in Paris (she lives in Spain, Barcelona), I missed her dj set. So this month, I decided to invite her for a “special NYE” set and an interview to know her more.

Music by Marina presents DJ Hell

I was a fan of DJ Hell. I wanted to take some pics of him earlier this year for my blog when he played at Nouveau Casino in Paris, his label was ok, and Hell invited me.

Everybody told me before coming to the club "Be careful, this guy is very difficult, he acts like a diva, always asks for some special champagne, blah blah".
I arrived there 5 minutes before him, the backstage was empty. The promoter asked me to go out the room. "I'm waiting for Hell, I'm a photographer, he invited me". "Are you sure? Because the label asked us to keep his backstage empty..."

Hell finally arrived in the backstages, said hello. And was surprised when I answered I was the photographer. "You look young, and all your pictures...".
He was excited to have his own portrait
"Have you got any ideas for your photos?"
"I want to see you in this mirror, want a B&W portrait, that can be cool".
I took my bag and got out my dear Sony compact.

Surprise again and huge smile. "Do you know who I am? You want to take photos with that? A compact?"
"Trust japonese..." smiley
Then we talked about rock and electro...

Now I'm really happy to be invited by Hell each time he goes around and so proud when he says my portrait is his favorite one... And now I know that he doesn't like alcohol except good champagne, and that helps him to speak to people ("people don't know I'm shy"), that he supports the Femen for many years, and so many things I don't want to share smiley

This is an exclusive mixtape made with indie rock and new wave tracks he likes to listen to at home.
Enjoy ♥

I remember, first time I met him, I was at the backstages in Cabaret Sauvage with my friends from Pillowtalk who made a live jam set some minutes before with him and Filles du Calvaire…

And then he asked me “do you want some love?" I didn’t get what he talked about, so I wanted to run away„,

I met a nice guy some months ago at the Showcase club in Paris, he was with Trentemøller.
I remember he gave me some champagne, I explained him I would like a pic of Trentemøller. He was his manager.
He looked like Clark Kent from a Superman movie, with his glasses.
Then we talked about nordic electronic artists, I said “I love Gusgus, Kasper Bjørke…”.
He laughed, I thought he didn’t like this kind of sound.
“I am Kasper Bjørke…”
