BRAHIM

BRAHIM

Pionneer in francophone reggae, Brahim rocked and inspired a whole generation weaned on soundsystems. Brahim made his own way, playing underground venues in Paris and the rest of France, found his feet and fought for the success of his debut album « Dans quel monde on vit »,  released in 2000 on the label« Inca Musique » (EMI-Wagram). Recorded in London, It was mixed by English-Jamaican sound engineer Godwin Lodgie. Rich with soul influences, this album became a reference for any fan of French reggae and sold over 10000 copies.
Encouraged by this success, Brahim makes himself known as a major singer of the French reggae scene. In no time, he is in the spotlight and gets involved in a tour where he supports Toots and The Maytals and performs at Les Francofolies de la Rochelle and other festivals such as Jamaican Sunrise, le Printemps de Bourges, Les Transmusicales de Rennes and la Fiesta des Suds.

He faces more difficulties with his following album. It takes him 9 years to release « Sur La Route ». But in spite of everything he decides to move forward and persist because, he says so himself, « Music is the only thing he can do ». It’s only natural that Brahim returns in 2012 with his third album « Sans Haine », produced by Baco Records. An expected and scuccessful come back : the album is intimate , emotional and mixes varied sounds like roots reggae with a touch of soul music reminiscent of Marvin Gaye and Otis Redding , And featuring famous guests like Pierpoljak or Nuttea.

Brahim is above all a strong personnality : a genuine artist who puts his personnal issues and night thoughts on paper. Brahim knows how to reach everybody, writes about his feelings and thanks to emotional lyrics he appeals to his audience thanks to truly heartbreaking lyrics.
Brahim continues in the same vein and gives new life into his music with album « Déconnecté » released in fall 2014, with Baco Records. In order to achieve this, he teams with hyperactive producer ManuDigitalBrahim proposes another album with multiple influences: the usual roots reggae, but also more electronic sounds with sharp bass sounds and a little dancehall vein. More upbeat, Brahim proposes an album inspired from his everyday life, struggles and anger but always filled with honesty and committment people like about him.
