Un Ca​ï​d EP

by Aksak Maboul



The new single off the legendary experimental pop band’s acclaimed double album 'Figures' comes out in the shape of an EP containing four very diverse remixes and a radio edit.

Brownswood artist Hello Skinny (aka Tom Skinner, also known for his work with Sons of Kemet) contributes an elegant rework with spectacular drum programming.

'Eyelids and Phosphenes' is a reconstruction by Aksak Maboul, which starts off as a remix and morphs into a totally wild new piece, with newly recorded vocals, keys and horns

Nihiloxica’s Spooky-J comes up with a sweet, intriguing minimal rework

Chicago house veteran Jordan Fields and Aksak Maboul’s Marc Hollander do a transatlantic collab for a fresh, bouncing old school take on the tune

Vocalist Véronique Vincent’s enigmatic lyrics for Un Caïd (“A Bigshot”) seem to reference a famous poet, maybe the bossy leader of an artistic movement born a century ago? But they’re mostly about thought, stares, eyes and eyelids. That much will be apparent in the music video directed by animator/collagist Yoann Stehr (who was also behind Aksak Maboul’s 'Tout a une fin' video).
