Baadman is at the forefront of a young generation of gifted French producers on the verge of a breakthru. Raised in Caen, like BeatauCue and Superpoze, he rapidly gained notoriety by playing some big name festivals in the West of France and producing extraordinarily mature and accomplished music. As further proof, the first remix he did was for Yelle’s “L’Amour Parfait”, released last February.
The Stab EP is perfectly fit for clubbing and making bad decisions: big bass and loops are strung together with disconcerting facility. With Baadman already proving his agility across the stages of European festivals — “Stab” and the accompanying b-side, “Gambetta”, are primed to be hits going into the summer.
