Stefan & Friends Pres: Bambounou (Fri 11/05)
*** He’s coming back! ***
Geisha in conjunction with Stefan & Friends are delighted to announce the return of the amazing Bambounou (50Weapons | FRA). Having graced the club with his presence and poise back in 2013, it’s safe to say that we’ve been itching for his return! If you’re unfamiliar, now is the time to get to know.
Bambounou aka Jéremy Guindo-Zegiestowski grew up in Paris with a Polish mother and a Malian father. With his dad not around, he was raised by his mother and as a result knew very little about his African heritage. The sense of multiple identities, of not being one thing or the other, has defined both his life and his music. Jéremy’s place as a key name in the recently resurgent Parisian scene was built on multiplicity. He’s released two albums and a run of standout singles for Modeselektor’s 50Weapons, and his music converges at an intersection between house, techno and bass music. Making tracks and playing gigs has provided Jéremy with a much-needed focus throughout the years. In many ways it’s shaped his identity: in embracing different sounds and styles and embodying the mixture, he knows that he must do the exact same thing in his daily life.
He started his life in dance music alongside French Fries and Chaos In The CBD on the then fledgling Clek Clek Boom label. Bursting on to the scene with his release Night/Brawl in 2011, he has since become one of the most sought after DJs on the world circuit.
