Moving away from his disco-house roots, Tonique fully embraces his new role as singer / multi-instrumentalist. He says: “‘like you’ is about finding one’s soul mate, but most of all, it is a song which makes you want to drive around in a convertible by the sea”.
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.
