Available languages: EnglishA jazz, funk, and hip-hop hybrid group hailing from France, Electro Deluxe formed in 2001. Their lineup (Thomas Faure -- sax, programming; Jeremie Coke -- bass; Gael Cadoux -- keyboards; and Arnaud Renaville -- drums) was assembled from a very well-trained and well-educated musical pool, and made its main intent to fuse a jazz-funk sound that used elements of electronica to back up the live musicians, rather than the other way around. Their first album, Stardown, was released in 2005. A follow-up appeared soon after in 2007, entitled Hopeful.

Jazz - Verschenen op 4 oktober 2019 | Stardown
For over two decades now, Electro Deluxe have proved that French funk is neither a misprint nor a mere copy of the masters’ work on the other side of the Atlantic… Without trying to reinvent the wheel, the vibrant Gallic gang apply their unique know-how to irresistible compositions with the sole objective of getting their listeners up and dancing. Though for their sixth album, Electro Deluxe adventure into visibly more electronic territories, mixing seventies groove with French Touch… Their pure, acoustic sound is enriched by the warmth of legendary keyboards such as the Juno and the Moog. The famous Linndrum drum machine from Prince’s early days lines up next to Roger Troutman from Zapp’s talkbox, Daft Punk’s vocoder and Herbie Hancock’s Fender Rhodes. A tidal wave of sounds that sweep you away to seventh heaven! © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz
