Interview with Mocky

Mocky - Saskamodie


Mocky - Saskamodie (CD) Crammed/Wagram, 2009-03-23Named after a song Mocky made up when he was seven using imaginary words, "Saskamodie" is a new future/retro classic: a return to pure musical expression by a cutting edge artist who is no longer bound by the electronic music scene.

Mocky - Navy Brown Blues (CD) Four Music FOR82876780202, 2006-05-15 Review : Mocky's releases have been particularly interesting ever since the beginning of his career.

Jamie Lidell - Multiply


Jamie Lidell - "Multiply" (Warp) Prince? Faut arrêter d'écouter juste les 2-3 premiers tracks des disques que vous recevez les gars? Jamie Lidell a décidé qu'il pouvait tout faire.
