dDash (fr)

dDASH (known as ex-pseudo Boulder dDash) is the solo project of Jean-Baptiste Hanak who is also known as one half of infamous parisian duo dDamage and for his collaboration with Cobra.

His second solo album Hyperactive Jerk has been released on parisian based label Tsunami-Addiction.

Hyperactive Jerk loads into our ear a bright soundtrack that allows us to attack in a vanishing point the new century, thanks to soul Frenchy dark alien folk trash dDASH. Exit digital EBM & IDM series, let’s make place to the folk-trap of Jean-Baptiste Hanak, a new management of his universe filled with retro melodies and special tones of almost human voices. This exclusive delivery brings up to mind Johnny Cash under helium or Jazmine Sullivan who would have taken too much medicinal herbs. This elegant and pressed punk rocker gives beautiful second burst, after brilliant Alien Folk Trash (out in 2003 on the Austrian legendary label Angelika Kohlermann / Mego). Slow and stately, impetuous and nervous, his atmospheric rock gives way to his falsetto, and brings back truly folky magnitude. A lot of improvisations put on wax and tracks that appear to be magnetic impulses with slight computer science samples, accompanied by electronic guitars and a full moon tonality. gives a perfectly educated deviant rock ( son of first Pixies era, cousin of the Kurt Cobain acoustic field and stepbro of the Gary Wilson from the 90’s... ) dDASH unfolds like a mystical ceremony, eyes closed and head nodding in a remote flayed trance, staying away from the star mainstream rainbow, but close to the heart of funky contemporary music.

Törst Obborun (be)

Diagnosed with visceral eagerness for the lack of certitude and research of fragile and uncertain balance, i had no choice but momentary escaping from Industroïka to deeply inhale the fresh breeze of the unknown, having less control on the music, enjoying last minute featurings wherever and whenever possible, being surprised and carried away.

The setup, sounding objects, collaborations, are not, and won't be steady frozen. Just get in touch, project videos, spit words, make your instrument feedback, hit stuffs, dance, paint.
I'll be there, catch you the next wave.
