about

For its 27th release, Da ! Heart It Records gratifies you with a new album by Le Matin: “Le Martin.”

Over the past decade, we’ve seen this musical UFO pass by on a Chicago house label (Mathematics Recordings), on the ParisHQ compilation covering Julien Clerc in an 8bit version, and even on a breakcore label (Berzerk Produkts) remixing Franky Vincent!

We also owe him must-see video games such as Ours en Slip Simulator and Blektre (a real-life simulator)…We get it, Charles Torris is a geek, a comprehensive and prolific artist who likes to cultivate paradoxes.

In this album, you will find his sub-realist poetry, where dark – and sometimes coarse – humor slices with a sober, sensitive, and melancholic music. In his displaced universe, synthesizers and “old-style" rhythm boxes draw landscapes with neon lights, cellophane clouds, and the silicone architecture of a future as fascinating as it is troubling.

His sonorities may evoke Detroit’s techno, cold wave, and even the IDM of a DMX Krew. But as the artist says himself – and as the piece Nouvel Évier shows – “If Kraftwerk or Dopplereffekt were French, their balls would spill out from their dirty kangaroo underwear…”

This album deserved a case fit for its preciousness, thus it is presented in a folded LP sleeve decorated with a superb illustration, along with a drawing, cards, a badge, and a sticker, all created by Élise Kobisch-Miana.

Let it be known: this album by Le Matin is to French chanson what sausage is to sauerkraut: indispensable!
