"Nouvelle Vague"

"Scooping from its multiple musical influences, l'Oeuf Raide gives birth to an album which deserves an attentive listening."
- Nouvelle Vague (F)

"Coda Magazine"

"The influences, multiple as they are, got crushed and restuck here in a surprising way. They leave much space to the imagination of the one who's listening, as well as latitude in the spatial movement in space of these titles conceived by L'Oeuf Raide. An opus which will delight the lovers of melodic and rhythmic experiments." - Coda Magazine

"L'Oeuf Raide - Dans le même panier"

" A disk as rich and dense as its predecessor... even better. When the sounds of Aphex Twin and Amon Tobin are juxtaposed with rhythms drawn from the Abstrac of Shadow and his gang we realise that the guy hardly forgot to develop his own universe... Opened to all sounds and to all the fusions, l'Oeuf Raide programs, fiddles and scratches with disconcerting ease... " And if, after the sound of Warp and Ninja Tunes, there’d be the the style of Jarring Effects? Fred would be a fervent defender...“ - Rocksound

Little introduction into French word games:
L'Oeuf Raide (the Stoned Egg) = [loefred] = Le Fred = The Fred

Fred, stemming from the punk hardcore scene, produces now an electronic music by mixing electronic tones and traditional instruments as well as a multitude of influences, and called it the ELECTROMELETTE.
Thanks to Le Printemps de Bourges, an annual event for artistic newcomers, a promotional 3 titles CD, " On/Oeuf " is born, followed by the release of the EP vinyl Gobez l'uf on the French label Jarring Effects in September 2001. Two other EPs in 2002 follow A la coque (10 ") and Hop-la ( picture disc vinyl), and finally the first album 13 a la douzaine (Jarring Effects - Pias / Kubik) in 2003.
In 2005, l'Oeuf Raide launches his second album, Dans le meme panier (Jarring Effects/Pias), much wiser than his first opus, between cinematic, abstract hip-hop and trip hop, the whole sprinkled with ethnic samples and jazz.

Behind his machines, l'Oeuf Raide cooks sets to delight ears and feet. From hip hop to jungle break beat, via electronica, everything's in. A rich recipe that won't stop you from burning the dancefloor.

Release of his third opus in September 2007: Are You Eggsperienced? - an even wider spectrum of musical experiments. If you think cinematic, there is some, if you think break, there is some, too...but there's also rap, trip hop, jungle and even rock. An explosive cocktail, that reminds you of those hard homemade liquors they drink in prohibition films.
All kind of eggsperimentations and eggsplorations in unknown fields and soundtracks for imaginary movies. You won’t get through it unharmed. Like Alice turning to a woman, we walk through the mans psychedelic mirror. Be ready to throw yourself in this wild trip, in which you'll meet funk brassbands, jazz themes, Indus' drumkits, rock progressions and real rhythm n blues digressions...

L'Oeuf Raide turns himself into a musical handgrenade : take the pin out of it and it will eventually burst into pieces, like multi-flavored popcorn.
One doesn’t even dare to imagine what a year of Berlin exile makes him capable of... let’s just say that names as BluRum 13 are in the game...
Release „Berlin Eggsile“ scheduled for September 2009!
