Half studio rats, half live shamans: Baron rétif & Concepción Pérez makes music that refuses to chose between dreaming or dancing, exploring or relaxing.
Here's the spa retreat program: siphoning jazz's simple interventions, the sound's nature, the playful bottles and the first loops. Turn swing into swag. Research funk cuttings, slow down with dub sorcery breathing, plugin in electronics --the one with wires, and weave a carpet on wich the patterns will be as rap-like as they are exotic.
Having released three records on Musique Large (Débruit, Fulgeance...), a couple rap beats (Rocé, Coeff) and some remixes (their latests is on Laurent Garnier's new EP), L'indien shows up unexpectedly on parisian label Heavenly Sweetness (Anthony Joseph, Webster Wraight Ensemble...). L'indien opens up new paths for Baron Rétif & Concepción Pérez, trailblazing through the jungle.
"As long as we didn't meet him: we don't know who he is. L'indien comes when he wants, we can't call him: he's the one calling. L'indien is the strangely familiar, the unadeltered freedom, freedom to do nothing or to sail through the cosmos."
