Recognized by Wax Tailor as an activist of the french abstract Hip-Hop scene, his name eventually came out in the underground through his remixes of such artists as Aesop Rock, Mr Lif and Antipop Consortium. Though his ambition evolved, Le Parasite remains true to his beliefs : taking root into a fundamentally instrumental « horizontal Hip-Hop », he’s building his music without making any concession while stretching the limits of the genre. Imagined as an astral travel, My Mind Travels Far (a title taken from Ganstarr track « Next time » : « my mind travels far from ghetto to galaxy ») brings out a mix of ambiances, sometimes mystic, sometimes emotional or ironic. His rough and subtle breakbeats collide with dark and cinematographic atmospheres somewhere between Sci-Fi and industrial vintage lo-fi sounds. Using elements from opposite worlds, he samples, filters, refines and customizes it to turn it into some thick and gloomy textures. On the mysterious « Nixes », chords and choirs get more and more tensed, added to score music samples and a beat that seems to accelerate to a tragic end. Miles away from this, « Abduction Theme » mixes Tchaikovsky samples with a beat, a disco funk bass and a musical saw as a tribute to vintage SF movie soundtracks. As for metallic and mineral track « Watch The Sky Darken », it drags us down into the eye of the storm… Without seeking to follow a particular path or to reproduce a pre-made blueprint, Le Parasite is defining a strong universe full of emotions and images.
