Eleven o’clock at the Mama Shelter hostel in Paris, a coffee in the stomach and few hours of sleep behind us, it seems that the conditions are ideals ! In the bottom of the restaurant Clark is waiting for us, i hope our old school microphone will work this time…

Find the Jekyll Face here.

I’ve dug on the internet yesterday night, and in just 2 minutes i’ve find downloadable links for “Totems flare” even if the official release is in approximately one month… does it upset you ?

I think people have a massive appetite, they want more and more music and they want it faster ! I have noticed by myself that my album was already leached and I told it to Warp, but rules have changed and even if it’s not the end of the world it could chunk out of your record sales, you know.

So, I don’t think people should be punished for showing an interest in music, because I have also done it myself but it is like everything, people have to be moderate about it and it can be alright! I have spent 40 euros on Beatport the other days and I still spend as much as I have on music, and I won’t download things before they release for free !

” I feel like people get trapped in a kind of feed back loop and then they will all get back to caveman banging on skulls of dead animals…”

You said that people always want more and more and faster, so do you think we are going too fast ?

People get bored really quickly because they are subjected to constant stimulations, it’s like they are on crystal meth or something ! So we are at a point that people are listening music so fast that you can even hear it ! If we continue like that, in 10 years, they will be in dark rooms with headphones just shaking their heads… listening to music streamed in the reel time on the internet… before the music even be made. And even maybe the music will be made by itself !

So is it a non-return point ?

Well I feel like people get trapped in a kind of feed back loop and then they will all get back to caveman banging on skulls of dead animals and then good stuff could happens, yeah !

“I’m quite extrem in my habbits. I have to do things like I have planed and if it don’t happen like that, i just can stop everything! I am a bi-polar person.”

You seem to be a quiet person, staying on the same label for years, releasing music frenquently… but is it just a cover, or not ?

Yeah, everything is a cover ! I don’t feel like a stable person because i’m quite extrem in my habbits. I have to do things like I have planed and if it don’t happen like that, i just can stop everything! I am a bi-polar person.

Any others hobbies than music ?

Just the humans one’s : food, sex, etc… And I’ve been doing a lot more since the album is finish !/p>

And what will you do if tomorow you lost hearing ?

I probably just start fishing i guess.



Have you got any fetish item you always carry on ?

I got a ritual, a toes taping ritual more precisely ! I can do various combinations typing on the music, but i need to be on my own when i do it, because the sound is a little bit disgusting ! I also like to not cut my nails and then when i have the gig i cut everything and throw it to the audience. That why people wears sunglasses on my show… is not to be cool !

Your biggest vice ?

Food, alcohol, drugs, all the normal one’s you know.

Your favorite saying ?

What can you do ?

If someone should say about you that you were a piece of shit, who would it be ?

Hmmm, I don’t know, i try to keep good relationship with people i meet. But maybe people i known when i was a teenager, i was a little bit dumb at this period.

Now I will say a suite of words and you will have to answer each time by a single word :

Rave : Sick

Minimal : Berlin

Kebab : Wicked

Girls : Wicked

Drugs : Wast of time

So now I will ask you the last question, the one of our last interviewed, Grems the french Hiphop artist which didn’t know you were the next to pass in a face a face with Jekyll and hyde, so the question is :

Have you ever try to fuck your bestfriend’s girlfriend, motherfucker ?!

Oh yeah, of course, that the way I usually start relationships with girls !

So now it’s your turn, what question want you to ask to our next interviewed…

What is the strangest place you ever have a wank ?
