From the press release:
Joon Moon is not who you think she is. Behind this romantic character, we discover the musician and producer Julien Decoret. Inspired by the golden age of soul music, the new record was mixed with classical orchestrations and rearranged with the colors of contemporary pop productions.
Because Joon Moon is not who you think she is. Behind this romantic character, we discover the musician and producer Julien Decoret. Julien is a man with multiple facets: he begins by studying classical music at the Conservatory and obtaining a first prize in double bass, whilst being fascinated by electronic music. He then produces his first records on the label Pamplemousse Records. Since then, he has been working as a producer-director (Acoustic Resistance, La Boetie, Florent Marchet...), producing string arrangements and film music. He has also been traveling around the world with the pop-bossa-nova group Nouvelle Vague since over 15 years.
Each project allowed him to explore new directions and to enrich his palette of musical influences, but also to acquire an "instrumentarium". Over time, Julien collected over a hundred instruments from all four corners of the planet. His signature is the art of mixing influences and reinventing sounds for different purposes, making them come together in a new way for each song, artist, or project...
For Joon Moon, Julien Decoret had a particular style in mind. Or rather a dream: to travel across the Atlantic and go back in time. A musical meeting inspired by the golden age of Soul music, mixed with classical orchestrations, and rearranged with the colors of contemporary pop productions. A universe where Nina Simone, Michel Legrand, The Roots or even Radiohead (who authorized the re-adaptation in French of their song "I might be wrong" on the album Moonshine Corner) could cross paths.
To embody the heroine for the second opus of Joon Moon, Julien Decoret invited Liv Warfield, Prince's ex-protege and member of his NPG (New Power Generation). The first sessions took place in a modest studio in Montmartre, a thousand miles from Paisley Park... but the magic happens. Other sessions will follow in Chicago and Portland to record Liv and a Gospel choir which we can hear on some songs.
