Hervé Salters is the artist behind one-man-band General Elektriks. A French keyboardist with a self-confessed passion for vintage keyboards, Hervé Salters initiated General Electrics just before moving to San Francisco. Using a computer and his oldschool keys, he started sowing together loops, Funky keyboards, light melodies and digital noises.
His debut, Cliquety Kliqk, was a collection of 12 retro futuristic pieces where electronica meets hip-hop and funk. The album was first released in France by Bleu Electric, then picked up by Compost for Europe and by Quannum for the US.
Aesthetically, GE is a project that refuses to be classified. A mix of vintage sounds, hip hop beats, dreamy vocals and cinematic arrangements, Cliquety Kliqk embraces all of RV’s musical addictions. Radically new yet strangely familiar, General Electrics is a breath of fresh air in your music collection.
