An intimate solo performance followed by conversation with Malik Djoudi.
"You know, I'm not afraid of anything, apart from the void, that might trouble my future."
No, Malik Djoudi is not afraid of anything and his first album fills a void in the French scene. The romanticism of a dandy who's not too sure of himself, bringing to mind Christophe, Sébastien Tellier and William Sheller; a voice that floats in the air like Connan Mockasin; the muted melodic intensity which hits a nerve like Blonde Redhead; the intimacy that James Blake seems to do so well. And words in French that he handles gracefully and candidly, set to an equally pared down electro pop backdrop.
