“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.
