BIOGRAPHY

Pioneer of French reggae scene, BRAHIM rocked and inspired a whole generation raised in sound systems. This is how he drew his path: scouring the scenes of France, defending the 4 albums that made his discography. BRAHIM is above all a strong personality : an authentic artist who writes about his nocturnal and personal questions. BRAHIM knows how to speak to everyone, he writes about what touches him and it is thanks to his poignant and sincere texts that he won his audience, who often recognizes in his songs, his own anxieties, his own demons, his own hopes…. After a few years of absence, he returns with an ambitious project “AINSI VIVENT LES HOMMES”. A conceptual “double-sided” album which highlights two important themes for the famous MC. On the one hand, his need to talk about the madness of men and its global consequences, on the other, romantic relationships, from meeting to breaking up, until rebirth. A spiritual journey in the singer’s mind who never stops wanting to express his feelings. This new opus “AINSI VIVENT LES HOMMES” addresses these two issues, which respond to each other, putting the listener in the center of the life experience of the singer, who talks about his critical vision of a society in disintegration and, as well as on his heartache, taking his audience to witness with sincerity, an entire psychological destitution revealing his deepest wounds. Each album has its own new team. But this time, BRAHIM went much further in his personal involvement in this new project. In addition to writing texts of radical sincerity, he composed all of the music himself. It is a great first for him, allowing to reveal an additional facet of this complete artist. Evolving from new roots, to vaporous “dub” sounds, this opus finds its place in the current landscape of the best French and international productions, combining powerful “roots” rhythms, with hypnotic beats of “Bass Music”. To carry out this new adventure, he nevertheless surrounded himself with a solid team. Indeed he turned to the hard core of his label Baco Records. We find there members of DANAKIL and in the mix of the album Damien “Bobby” Coutrot, from the Baco Studio. Enough to make BRAHIM‘s voice, greedy for creation and expression, reason again.

After a few years of absence, he returns to us with an ambitious project. A conceptual “double-sided” album which highlights two themes dear to the famous MC. On the one hand his need to talk about the madness of men and its global consequences, on the other hand love relationships, from meeting to breakup to rebirth. A spiritual journey into the head of the singer who never stops wanting to express his feelings. This new opus “Bien Vivent les Hommes” addresses these two themes, which respond to each other, putting the listener at the center of the life experience of the singer, who confides in his critical vision of a society in disintegration, as well as its heartache, visibly salient, taking thus his audience witnesses with frontal sincerity, a complete psychological deprivation revealing his deepest wounds. Each album has its new team. But this time, BRAHIM went much further in his personal involvement in this new project, because in addition to writing texts of radical sincerity, he composed all of the music himself, which is a great first for him, allowing us to reveal an additional facet of this complete artist. Evolving from new roots, with vaporous “dub” sounds, this opus finds its place in the current landscape of the best French and international productions, combining the naturalness of powerful “roots” rhythms, with the heaviness of the hypnotic beats of “Bass Music” . To carry out this new adventure, he nevertheless surrounded himself with a solid team, since he turned to the hard core of his label Baco Records. We thus find Martin Bisson, keyboardist of DANAKIL in the production of the album, who called on friends from the famous French reggae combo, to record the rhythms (Boris and Titi bass-drums of DANAKIL), bring their know-how, on percussion (Manjul), on saxophone (Bozo Sax), and on the mix of the album, produced by Damien “Bobby” Coutrot, in the Baco studio. Enough to make the voice of this crooner, eager for creation and expression, resonate again. Thus Live Men, will be released on May 15, on CD, vinyl and digital.
