GENERAL ELEKTRIKS – GOOD CITY FOR DREAMERS (Lounge/HipHop – France)

General Elektriks

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.

Also part of the band Honeycut, Salters released his sophomore album as General Elektriks last year to wide acclaim. The new album, Good City For Dreamers, is the follow up to GE’s debut album Cliquety Kliqk. The production here is polished and the songs are just as well crafted as on GE’s debut. Hervé Salters’ new offering is a quirky mix of retro funk, New Wave-inspired indie rock and glitchy electronica that oscillates between moments of quiet contemplation, melancholy and clap-happy euphoria.

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.
