“I always listen to the flows released by Jay‑Z, between two songs of Tom Waits”: here is a sen­tence that sums up Dam­li­f’s ref­er­ences rather well. The 21-year-old French man has been cul­tiv­at­ing his own style since 2017 by bring­ing togeth­er his taste for altern­at­ive music and rap. Still, it’s not easy to provide a por­trait without fall­ing into easy short­cuts. The best would be to listen to his EP “I, who dreamed”, where he explores the dif­fer­ent aspects of cre­ation (excess of con­fid­ence, doubt, stroke of geni­us…) on instru­ment­als with elec­tron­ic tend­ency. His next EP “Mar­celle” will be released in 2021.
