NOISE PARADE • Making it loud!

NoiseParade Logo Jun. 12th, 2016
I’ve been thinking about this for years now…
Creating my own record label to produce artists I love.
Recovering the very basic reasons that pushed me yeeaaaaars ago into music.
Vigorous, sincere & sweaty bands.
Already Half time on the road and half time in the studio,
I’m also half time at the office now!

MEREDITH • III • Out!

Apr. 1st, 2015
Here’s how I keep in mind what led me into music business at the very beginning …
I plug a guitar into a greasy fuzz pedal into a dirty 15″ bass amp, and make it loud !
Meredith’s both my band and my guilty pleasure, hope you’ll like being a teenager once again !

L’EFFONDRAS • ⊙ • Out!

Leffondras LP1Dec. 20th, 2014
Sometimes, Records aren’t meant to laugh.
Sometimes they just are intolerant and intransigent Records.
There’s close to no chance at all these Records will impact the pop culture.
This one is one of them, and I’m really proud to be a part of it.

31 REASONS • To make this update

distopianoApr. 29th, 2013
Ok, ok, i lied, i don’t have a 31 things list, but i just turned 31 and this was a pretty good starting point.
So what’s new?! I still have no gray hairs, no pain running twenty kilometers at full speed, and I still wake up at 6am with no hangover after ending a party drunk at 5am !
Ok, ok, i’m lying again, everything above is wrong, but here’s some truth.
I’ve just mixed an EP for my very good friends from Belair Polo Club, and i think you’ll ear about them soon.

I’ve started working as a live mixer for the great Natas Loves You who are about to fly to New York to record their debut album.
I’ve started working on Lian Ray’s debut album, which is to date one of the most beautiful album i’ve worked on, stay tuned on this one.
Also, i’ve spent five weeks recording Gerald De Palmas rehearsals to help him preparing his upcoming album, but i’ll shut up on this one, already said too much!

On the geek side i’ve made two new stompboxes, one fuzz and one bigger fuzz ahah, nothing won’t ever beat this second one!
Royer Ribbon mics got refreshed, NS10 monitors arrived at home and I now own a beautiful Klein piano, can’t stop playing on it !
That’s all folks. now let’s see how this dark hair dye works …

HAPPY NEW YEAR! • 2013

Happy new year to all of you!
I hope you had a good one and that the new one will be even better!

I wish the exact same for myself of course :)
