Doctor Flake is a french DJ/producer/composer who evolves in a kind of
abstract Hip Hop / Trip Hop style, like a surgeon of music : a
“chirurSicien” (a play on the french words “Chirurgien” : surgeon /
“Musicien” : musician).
His composition work, started in 2001, consists in developing instrumental universes, based on existing sound materials.
He creates samples which are meticulously cut, then reassembled and rearranged in order to co-exist in a track : a real “fourmiSicien” ‘s work (a play on the french words “Fourmi” : ant / “Musicien” : musician).
As a worthy heir of the samplers’ madness, his work sometimes appears as a strange union between a dark gothic DJ and a prostitute.
Composing with samples he found thanks to years of researches, seeking for treasures hidden in the groove of old vinyls, Doctor Flake creates a dark and stylish sound, where melancholy and blind rage are mingled to offer a “picture to hear”
