John Lord Fonda - Composite

It is with some emotion that I publish this article! Indeed, by delving into the archives of the first version of Actualités Electroniques, I noticed that the following article was never published onto the second version of the website. So, here is the first article of project Actualités Electroniques. This is a review about the compilation of the Dijon producer John Lord Fonda, author of the fantastic "Personal Jesus" and "So Far Away". I also had a chance to see the man live at the Cabaret Sauvage alongside Vitalic, some years ago and it was massive. The compilation is huge too…

With his Voltage EP (2004), Cyril Thévenard founds the musical identity of John Lord Fonda. But his first album “Debaser”, released on Citizen Records in 2006, definitely establishes his style. Hyped up with rock and rave culture, this warmly welcome album sends him on tour for several months.

Released on Citizen Records, John Lord Fonda is back with his compilation "Composite" available since today [March 16, 2009] and includes no less than 30 tracks from Sebastien Tellier, Daft Punk, but also Laurent Garnier, The Prodigy and many others like the fantastic Gesaffelstein, that we will soon interview.... On stage, John Lord Fonda re-creates his live every night, including from time to time a hit from the Beastie Boys or Donna Summer in his set.

This allows him to play with these tracks and to glorify them in another way. The seeds of Composite are planted and will become, later on, an amazing tangle of live bootlegs.

Composite is a restitution of this scenic project undergoing constant mutation, evolving depending on the artist’s wishes. Along the 55 minutes of this mix, John Lord Fonda reveals without restraint his musical universe, demanding but open, knowing how to conjugate with refinement classical, hip-hop and electronic music.
