When he came through Montreux in 2015, the live performances of this German artist were reputed among the best from the world electro scene. Too much pressure? In any event, this high-level pianist, classically trained from 5, temporarily exited the club circuit, leaving his fans to wear out their copies of the album Times (2013) and a collection of admirable singles: Epikur (2014) and J.B.Y (2016). Cerebral techno, echoes of haunted jazz and tortured post-rock, symphonic arrangements pared to the bone, the head of excellent label 99CHANTS finally broke his silence in 2018 with D’Angelo: a cinematic ballad over seven stages through the imagined psyche of the baroque painter Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio. A true marvel.
