Today and right now, indieRepublik is happy to premiere “A Vibrant Touch Offfff – French 79 Remix” by French breakout artist Texture Droite and French 79.
“A Vibrant Touch Offfff – French 79 Remix” will be officially released on all digital platforms on September 4, 2020.
After releasing music under his previous artist name of 9th Cloud, Texture Droite (more or less translated as Straight Texture), is intended as a fresh start, with then name coming from the name of the first track he composed with his new sonic idea. The idea is to blend “textures of sonic material” and straight 4/4 beats.
Texture Droite on Marseille: “it’s a perfect place to be creating”
Texture Droite wants to make music that works at home on your headphones or in a party atmosphere – he started origiinally with jazz samples and hip hop beats; with TD tho that’s all stripped away to pure electronics.
Texture Droite is based in Marseille, France’s second biggest city and creative hotspot, where influences and cultures mix – from Africa, the Mediterranean and everywhere else. TD himself says that “it’s a perfect place to be creating but not too much in a trendy sphere of influence” (Savage Thrills)
French 79 is the electronic musical project founded by Simon Henner in Marseille in 2014. French 79 enjoyed international success with the release in 2016 of his first album Olympic.
