Outspoken: Uttered or expressed with frankness or without reserve.
Since 1999, when he released his debut album as Joakim Lone Octet (an electro-jazz exercise in style on Future Talk, the experimental sub-label of Versatile), Joakim has been a tough musician to pinpoint. An ex piano student at the Conservatory, the man has taken great efforts to avoid being pigeonholed and has grown on the outskirts of the French Touch and international Club scenes, becoming one of their major players but refusing to permanently associate with any crew, current, style or genre.
Year after year, Joakim has gathered experiences that confirm his global vision of music and explored many facets of the musical spectrum : a musician with five albums under his belt; an outstanding DJ whose huge musical spectrum makes him equally at home at Panorama Bar, and outdoor rave or an art show afterparty; a label founder and manager (the fantastic Tigersushi and the recent vinyl-only Crowdspacer imprint); a self-taught graphic designer (he designs his record covers and most of the label’s artworks); a producer (for Panico, Poni Hoax, Zombie Zombie, Y.O.U., Montevideo...); a high-profile remixer who sends the tracks he works on into another galaxy (Antena, Charlotte Gainsbourg, Todd Terje etc…); a fashion enthusiast (he launched Tigersushi Furs with his cousin); a sound designer for catwalks (Chanel, Margiela, Balenciaga); and a step into contemporary art, working on Camille Henrot's installations and videos (who won the Silver Lion at the 2013 Venice Biennale with the video Grosse Fatigue) or making his own sound installations (Gwangju Biennale in 2014 curated by Jessica Morgan).
