Joakim Trades Monsters for Milky Ways
- Words: Jennifer Marston
The last time we checked in with Joakim Bouaziz, talk revolved around all things monster-related. 2009 finds the French producer less concerned with where the wild things are and more laid back as he prepares for the release of his third full-length, Milky Ways. Though no less ambitious (he apparently included every genre from electro to blues on the release), the new album finds Bouaziz sharper musically, having fine-tuned his live band, which he used throughout the recording process. "I'm addicted to music," he says. "I listen to a lot of very different things, and whenever I hear something interesting in a song I think, 'Let's try it, put it with something completely different and see what it does, like a mad scientist.'"
!K7 will release his experimental musings on September 15.
