De Grandi is the latest pioneering flag-bearer for the emerging Bérite Club Sound of Paris. This new tone resonating through the Parisian streets first arose from the genetics of France’s long electronic musical history.
With essences of French Boogie and the diverse sounds of Afrotrap, Bérite Club music is arising speedily, and De Grandi is emphasising his bold presence in the fresh spotlight.
His latest release 94120 Groove, is a raw, unapologetic and thumping 5 track project, which injects the fractions of influences from the unique and vibrant French scene into a selection of thick rhythmic cuts. With a bold and brutal approach to production and mixing, Grandi’s sound focuses strictly on the dance floor whilst also taking fragments of the more emotive and melodic sections of his home country’s musical spectrum.
Stepping up to our mix series,De Grandi aims squarely for the floor, serving up a playful mix of drum-heavy club workouts. Hear below.
