22 22 Says Quite a Bit on Music and Bringing That Music Out There!

Modern day crossed old school is how 22 22 describes themselves and their music. The next step is to make 22 22 bigger and better than the day before, releasing even more music and much else to follow. A lot more is said about this particular act of music and creativeness.

1. Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.

22 22 is an electronic project led by an independent French producer based in Paris. I have about 20 years’ experience in the music circus: from my beginnings as a hip-hop singer to the pop-electro music producer I am today. Since 2000, I produced beats for many hip-hop artists and crew. In parallel, I tried to develop my style through sound design and jingles creation for radio stations such as the On Air TV-Radio. I have also worked with different groups and labels based in Paris, Stockholm, Atlanta and New York.

2. What’s the origin of the band’s name?

22 22 is known as the angel number meaning peace and harmony supporting humanity when the universe is testing our ability to respond to challenges be they climate change, racism, women harassments. 22 22 believes in the Forces of the Universe sending us signs to accomplish something bigger than us: « We’re making funk-pop, engaged music » 

3. Where is the band based out of and what is your music scene like there? Are there any local bands you could recommend?

22 22 is based in Paris (France). 

Urban style (Trap, Afro Pop) is the most important music style there.

4. How would you describe your style?

I believe in the mix of many styles and in music as a meeting place. I grew up with all funky styles from Motown to creative producers like Prince, but my generation was hypnotized by the revolution of electronic music. So, my style is like a tennis match between Old Vintage Funk & recent EDM.

5. What have you released so far and what can someone expect from your works?

My productions were mainly collaborations and contributions as a Hip Hop composer, arranger and mixing engineer for other artists’ records. (See below links)

In the tracks to come, people can expect different shades of electrofunk music and always with the groovy style.

Of course, I have got an album of 12 tracks named “The Angel Number” ready for the mixing step.

7. How about playing shows and touring, have anything planned out?

Very difficult at this time … But I’m thinking to realize a nice show with singers, dancers, DJ, Musicians around the theme of 22 22 mystery. 

8. What plans do you have for the future as a band?

I’ll rely on my guardian angels to make 22 22 bigger than yesterday and bring happiness to people with music. “And, when you want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it.” (P. Coelho “The Alchemist”).

9. Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?


10. What is it you’d like a listener to remember the most when hearing your music for the first time?

I would like all people to listen to 22 22's records as the beginning of an experience bringing together new technologies and traditional instruments. My studio is a laboratory for sound design and beat making of hypnotic notes and catchy gimmick…And mostly feel the ENERGY!!!
