Easy 3 - copie.jpg

"Easy was inspired by a sample I had selected 8 years ago and never made anything with. The voice is from a documentary about how rythmes and music shape the life of the people of Baro, Guinea."

"NITE mostly comes from a desire to make a track that you would play in a taxi on your way back home from a night in town."

Cover_ezek1.jpg

"EZEK was made around a Portuguese dubbed version of Pulp Fiction. A simple bow to the movie, and the choice of language refers to my origins. I wanted to make more of a bright dance track this time but still had to include strong percussive elements."

Tala_HAMR2 - copie.jpg

"With HAMR, I wanted a more simple, more abrupt and less convoluted meaning. A feeling of high, a sort of anthem to be played in clubs."

Tala_RAYS cover2.jpg

"RAYS was made during very sunny days, sun shining through the windows and just breezes of air passing through the cracks. For more sunny days, parties and after-parties."

Tala_jane5.jpg

"JANE is the product of my living in London - a kind of sad melody, paired with a short sample of Jane Birkin speaking in French and a heavy UK beat. Nostalgia, the city and its warmth."

Tala_ring web - copie.jpg

"RING is all about a run on the beach and a jump in the sea. After a few sombre songs, I needed some light - the track can be divided in three parts that build up to a shinier track in the end."

Tala_7-20_3 - copie.jpg

"7:20 was my first collaboration and completely inspired by the will to make a song with Lola. I had written a vibraphone part 7 years ago and I always wanted to make something out of it but it somehow only saw the light when it had to be written for a singer."

"For GURL, I didn’t care so much about the structure as long as the synth solo parts were finding their place. Everything is built around them. I needed a repetitive base sound and drum patterns that kept on adding, that kept on making the track move forward."

Tala_brek2 - copie.jpg

"After an unsuccessful recording session in a studio, I ended up having only 3 days left to make BREK while using a new software. The use of the guitar “bend” to make up the bird sounds kind of unlocked the rest of the creative process."

Tala_ante 4 - copie.jpg

"ANTE is the track I want you to listen to at home, ideally in front of a fire place, with a pack of cigarettes and a bottle of Blanton’s Gold."

PTSL3 new4.jpg

"PTSL is the best way I could end 2020. After the darkness, I seek for the light. The importance of looking out for the good things when you’re drowning and desperate."
