For its 48th release, Da ! Heard It Records takes a leak into the unknown.

On the sleeve picture, conceptualized by Pia-Mélissa Laroche, Johann Mazé chooses the bag race to cross what seems to be a rural garden. In simple terms, he thus shows the listener the step to follow: one must jump with feet together in this eccentric universe with blurry borders, as if out of some dream, at the very place where a sleepy memory weaves strange links among things.
Here, enigmatic voices escape a house without walls into which one enters through the roof; improbable ritualistic rhythms form alternately the outlet of an imaginary tribe or a parade of a cannibalistic Yellow Jackets’ batucada; elsewhere, a wobbly walz lulls the ear with soft dissonances; farther still, a piano turns off in the night, a harmonica rises, a metronome sets the tone of a charade of diverse and catchy percussions...
Like an exquisite cadaver on a piece of paper that we unfold little by little, each new piece of the puzzle opens the door onto an unexpected territory. Passing from one thumbnail to the next though, the atmospheres answer each other with a clever sonorous montage, a patchwork of field recordings, of sonorous poetry, diverse incantations, supernatural chords sometimes reminiscent of the fantasy of the Residents. Each texture associates itself or contrasts with the previous to bring to light a new horizon of this Autre Brousse that unwinds like a mysterious story.
Musician at the heart of various formations (France Sauvage, Nouvelles Impressions d’Afrique, Chausse-Trappe, Le Cercle des Mallissimalistes…) Johann Mazé et his twin ghost are the guides of a stunning excursion into the land of dreams.
