Coming from the Techno movement of the 90's and indisputable reference of the French Touch, Shazz has built up a special place on the French electronic scene, thanks to his crystal clear and melancolic melodies that are his trademarks. During his first years at F-Com, he meets Laurent Garnier and Ludovic Navarre (aka St Germain) with whom he composes and collaborates on different projects under the monikers L'n'S, Nuages, Soofle, Choice (Acid Eiffel). At the end of the 90's, Shazz quits F-Com and signs a deal with a major, Sony/Columbia. The album was nominated for the « Victoires de la Musique » (the « French Grammys »). With his 2nd album « In the Light », released on Epic, Shazz releases a House music album, with some pop and black music influences. Nevertheless, he stays connected to electronic music, inviting DJ Gregory for programming, Julien Jabre for mixing and Saint-Germain's pianist Alexandre Destrez for musical arrangements. With this 3rd album, Shazz takes a new direction: for the first time in his production, the vocals are at least as important as the music. « Human », released on Naive in 2005, is truly a musical UFO. An electro-baroque parenthesis at the crossroads of electro and soul, mixing Shazz's and music arranger Dominique Massa's electro-pop sounds to countertenor Gerard Lesne timeless vocals in Latin, German, English or French. Shazz releases his 4th solo album « Heritage », in March 2009 on Pschent. Ths single Mirage was selected to be on world famous Costes Lounge Compilations (Costes 11 & Costes Decade).
It's been more than 20 years now that Shazz's musical trip started. With EPilogue Shazz looks back at what's been his musical journey so far, with 6 tracks building bridges between the sound of the 90's and today's music, between Deep House and Downtempo, between the begining and what's not an end... The 3 first tracks (1993, Cafune, Back Home) are a cheeky wink to his deep House productions released in the first years of his career on Fnac Music Dance Division. The 3 following Downtempo tracks (On Your Feet, Air Kiss, So Sweet) recall the Chillout sessions of the hypest parties from back in the days. Epilogue is not the end of the story. The story goes on... A new chapter, with an exciting twist, is opening soon
