daroc.


david rocchi is french, from paris and if he's not working as an acoustic engineer he's daroc, valerie's newest discovery. when it comes to producing the 30-year-old uses an old mac and some synths to get things the way he wants them to be. not an easy task if your main goal is to produce something touching and you're not willing to work on something that you just like. daroc's got some high standards and an easy trigger erase button.

daroc - moogeux (featuring ayenash)

as far as inspiration goes, his biggest idols are morricone and moroder, two artists always obsessed with moody, cinematic music. other than that he spent his childhood being exposed to acts like stevie wonder, queen, depeche mode or french artists like gainsbourg, balavoine or polnareff. and although he likes newer stuff like portishead, daft punk or radiohead he points out that the old masters are unreachable when it comes to songwriting and production - he might not be on his own with this opinion.

daroc - hypnotic

for the near future daroc hopes to get a record deal in order to spend more time on making music, which is until now just a side project. and sure money would be nice but for the moment love will do, show him some on his myspace and head over to knicken for more daroc goodness!

Moogeux is cool, but has been heard so many times before. Antway it is not because it is not brand new that it does not sound better. Wait and see what comes next...
