A chap faithful to his roots, both musical and geographical, French artist and producer Remi Sauzedde aka Apollo Noir spent his juvenile years between the black woods of his motherland Auvergne and the rehearsal cave of his hardcore punk band. As a grown up, thanks to a refined transversal culture and an accumulation of analogue synths which helped him to achieve his ambitions, he is now performing a hybrid and quite unique form of electronic music.
His 3rd album Weapons takes you on an eventful journey between brutalism and minimalism, bathing in Apollo’s antithetical passions and a fascination for the subversive imaginary of the metal genre (notwithstanding a certain irony). Chopped rhythms collide with saturated basslines, where synth and spectral voices – his sound signature – meet a surgical sound design.
There is plenty to enjoy in the album and for all tastes, personally we loved the epic momentum of “Adieu”. All in all though, ‘Weapons’ marks a new milestone in Apollo Noir’s meandering and playful exploration, a trip that in your collection should find its place between Minor Threat, SOPHIE and Slayer.
