Fabien Dalzin took his first step in the production of melodic techno music.
He has produced many electro-house productions – he signed his first EP “Esky” on the Italian label Helios and can be found on other releases as a remixer – and was directed towards a very deep sound with melancholic melodies.
His E.P “Plain Jane” got out on Timid Records and he also worked with Wohlab, Follow Mix Records, Oryx Music and Grooved Music.
His tracks seem like short films, where the places, cities and people are its main source of inspiration. Regarding the influence of music, Fabien Dalzin loves artists with a profound spirit in their productions, such as Aphex Twin, Nathan Fake and Arandel or in classical music: Erik Satie.
My name is Fabien Dalzin. I was born in Sainte-Menehould (a very little city in the north of France) and grew up in Toulouse (France). When I was a child my idol was my fish, because he knew the answers of all my questions. When I was born, I started breathing. It was then when I realised that I can’t stop doing it and decided to never think about that anymore. Since then I live.
Now I live in Lyon. In my house you can find books, music stuff, a bathroom and a bed. My refrigerator is usually full with stewed apples and grapefruit juice. I enjoy writing short sentences I found and learning a lot about art.
On weekdays I take the bus, work on my thesis, take the bus, and make music and on weekends I usually make music, read, and take a walk in Lyon with my friends.
My favorite song at the moment is Isaac Delusion – Midnight Sun.
I love the “melancolic electro walk“ produced by this simple loop.
A film I watched lately and really liked was Melancholia.
I am very inspired by the concept of “nothing“. I love empty spaces and empty tracks (like John Cage – 4’33“) and hate the noise produced by the contact fork/knife. I am addicted to Erik Satie, I just cannot stop listening his music and reading his letters.
I get totally fucked up, when I lack inspiration. The next day I need to try again.
Local Suicide reminds me of a hive of cultural activities.
Tomorrow I will take the bus. In 10 years I hope I’ll be taking the bus too.
If my life was a Hollywood movie, the empty would have the main role, because he is everywhere.
If I was a car, I would be a Lada. If I was an animal, I would be a fish. If I was an invention, I would be a little one. If I was an object, I would be an empty page. If I could date myself, I would make fun of me.
If I could play with anyone it would be my friend Joris Delacroix. I would like to collaborate with Arandel and Shad.
Here is an example to listen about their collaboration Joris Delacroix – Minimélodie (Fabien Dalzin Remix)” :
If I had only one wish, it would be to have more than one possibility.
I would never say never, because of Justin Bieber .
My word of advice to the reader would be to drink grapefruit juice.
Devoting the record to “all you dreamers, lovers and spacers out there.” Here is Fabien’s new track “La visite (du timide)”:
A special remix for KID A (pseudonym of Virginian producer, singer/ songwriter, Anni T) “Kid A – PPPoney (Fabien Dalzin “I love Ponies” Remix)” :
And he deliver us a eclectic podcast in a total adequacy to the InFiné spirit, oscillating between elaborate electronic tracks and tasty old stuffs as soul (Nina Simone) or classical (Erik Satie) :
