After several years to occur in a group, the rapper farnhamien Jonathan Harbec had a desire to explore other horizons. This Friday, we will present the fruit of its labour with the release of his first solo album, Faces.
“This album joined me a lot. This is me at 14 songs, ” he says bluntly.
A member of the collective LDF and then the group FuZion, the rapper is immersed in the style for a good ten years. “By the end of 2017, I felt that I needed a break. I needed new inspirations, to live new business. It has allowed me to reinvent myself “, he says.
Emerge as a style “less aggressive and whistleblower” and a bill “a lot more polished,” he argued. “I believe that on the 14 tunes, there are only two that are more violent. “
Even The Killing is not so hate, in spite of its title fairly earth-shattering. “This is more of a parody of some of the rappers of the new generation that dirty in my opinion, the hip-hop culture. They have no content, they just want to shock, ” says the one who calls himself Jo Harbec.
The rest, he says, it is permitted to search different aspects of his personality. “The joy, the sadness, the loneliness, my carelessness… “
The rapper, 33-year-old also enjoyed exploring many facets of the musician that he is. “When you’re in a group, you can least do what you please, go anywhere else in term of sound. There, I touched it to the rap, singing, beatmaking, composition, to the realization… I really loved. “
It is for these reasons, and because it wanted a bilingual title, that he titled his offering Faces.
