Pisco Bar is proud to bring, for July's Lazy Sunday one of our favourite french artists of the moment ... Jean Tonique
French producer and multi-instrumentalist Jean Tonique is one of the most hyped artists this year
Drawing influences from 70s funk, Jean Tonique makes an effort to distance himself from genre-defining elements while approaching his music from an organic and raw songwriting perspective. Using elements from hip hop, house, and 70s/80s funk, the multifaceted producer likes to draw people in with the malleable dynamics of his music.
After remixes of Lana Del Rey, Outkast, The Kooks and many more, Jean Tonique has broken into the online market through being a regular fixture on Hype Machine’s Top 10 and growing recognition from media outlets. Now, growing on his French electronic music notoriety, Jean Tonique is expanding his presence with the release of "You" EP via Yuksek's label Partyfine - bringing that old school, happy vibe that made us fall in love with funky house.
The event will be supported by
CzuCzu aka Joanna Romanczukiewicz
Robotron 5000 aka Farez Khan
JonnyVicious aka Jonathan Öozel Charles
More About Jean Tonique
After two EPs, he starts piecing together what will become his rst album, around multiple in uences, with the extensive use of talk box, popularized byZapp, Snoop Dogg, Kraftwerk and Daft Punk. This particular instrument is what modulate the vocal parts, and turns it into funky, robotic sounds.
As a sound and machines maestro, Jean Tonique plays all the instruments on the album, but he selected a few guests for the vocal parts : american rapper Ciscero is on « This Feeling », and young soul diva Keyone Starr, featured on Mark Ronson’s track « I Can’t Lose », sings on « Grooving Machine » and « Something To Talk About ». Dabeull, from label Roche Musique is on « The Party » and Etienne de Crécy brings his immaculate techno touch to « Radio Tuning », the only voiceless song on the album. Jean Tonique always remains the mind behind this sonic space-trip, beginning with the take-o announcement as an intro to ’’Welcome In Paris’’ and concluding at the end of the B-Face with the all-encompassing ‘’Home’’, nal landing after this journey through the night.
Jean Tonique ? A well-mannered artist, with great taste, great sound and amazing technique. The ideal recipe for a rst LP to play on repeat in a never-ending party.
