(France | Astrophonica, Cosmic Bridge, 31 Recordings)
Germain Bigou aka Moresounds is a French musician from Paris, France.
Having begun his career in the early 2000s, Bigou is now a recognised actor in the global drum & bass scene, a dance music genre with roots in England. After years of small independent releases, his first notable professional releases came via the UK label Cosmic Bridge in 2012 followed by the Astrophonica label, also UK-based. Since then he has received further recognition and support from noted drum & bass pioneer Doc Scott, who released Bigou's productions on his own label, J:Kenzo, and with remixes for US producer Machinedrum's Vapor City project on the Ninja Tune label. Recognising his progress, FACT Magazine included Bigou as a producer to watch in 2015.
Bigou's music has appeared regularly on UK radio stations including BBC Radio 1 and Rinse FM, as well as various radio shows around the world. He has performed live, in a unique dub style rooted in Jamaican tradition, in various European cities, as well as China. He has appeared at noted festivals such as Sun & Bass (Italy), Fusion (Germany), and Telerama Dub (France).
"Moresounds is a proud student of Tubby, a man who found his artistic voice not only in the echoes of the Kingston pioneer's legacy but also the grooves of hip hop and the psychedelia of rave and dance music. Moresounds' music is that rare thing: a real synthesis of dub and dance music aesthetics, pulling from the enduring, mutating DNA strands of each to create something that's beyond a mere mixture of styles.
This intricate synthesis was first showcased to the world via releases on Seattle's Car Crash Set, the Snafu EP, and Om Unit's Cosmic Bridge label, the Control Breath EP. The latter has received worldwide praise and continued support from the likes of Low End Theory's D-Styles and legendary selector David Rodigan while also catching the attention Astrophonica boss Fracture. Soon enough a deal was sealed for Moresounds to follow Control Breath with a self-titled EP for the London label."
