“A psychedelic experience where absurdity, nonsense, humour, TV and internet culture all mix” – METAL Magazine

“Add in Tonique’s wobbly voice and the backing “bah-bah” vocals and its hard to not remind you of Ariel Pink or Kurt Vile” – Surviving The Golden Age

French DJ / producer / singer Jean Tonique is poised to announce his brand new 7-track album with the arrival of ‘sunny side up’ due this October and will pre-empt its release with an end of summer pop gem ‘too bad’.

Following on from his recent indie-pop release ‘like you’ earlier this summer, ‘too bad’ draws on a myriad of influences ranging from 70s funk, hip-hop and house, evident throughout the album.  Moving away from his disco-house roots, Tonique fully embraces his new role as singer / multi-instrumentalist. He says: “This album is a natural evolution of my music, less club-oriented but still encompassing that live, festival element. I wrote it in Los Angeles earlier this year and you can feel the city’s atmosphere and spirit in the tracks. It’s also a more personal record because I have written all the lyrics, sang on every track and also drawn the artwork. It’s in the end more a musician’s record than a producer’s one, as opposed to all I ever released until now”.

Having released his acclaimed debut album ‘Well Mannered Frivolity’ last year, described by DJ Magazine as ‘slickly produced’ and ‘irresistible’, Tonique returns older and wiser with ‘sunny side up’, focusing on raw, organic song-writing while still maintaining his affinity for French touch, house, 70s funk and hip-hop.

Jean Tonique’s previous two EP’s released on Yuksek’s Partyfine label, set the benchmark for his imitable club sounds and remixes for Lana Del Rey, Outkast, The Kooks and more propelled him to the world stage. 2019 looks set to take Jean even further into the stratosphere.
