Joakim is hard to pin down: part club music, part jazz, part electronic experimentalism.

One of France’s foremost electronic musicians, Joakim has a background in classical music, US & UK indie rock and jazz. He discovered electronic music after a schoolfriend left his synthesiser in Joakim’s room, later latching onto indie and electronic labels such as Mo Wax. His first album ‘Tiger Sushi’ was ambient electro-jazz, before he moved onto electronics with ‘Fantômes’ [2003], and later ‘Monsters and Silly Songs’ [2007], on which he combines post-rock, disco, electronics and, well, silly songs.
