ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
2015. We are in the intergalactic space, on a spaceship recovered from the dump and put together by a DIY genius. We can catch sounds that come from earth, snatches of voices, melodies and rhythms warped up by the time-space journey. On board the ill-assorted crew is fighting for freedom, for diversity, for the love between Nations. Star Wars, at the end of the 70s, was a utopia. That utopia. It was Bocrew Thedeepr’s childhood. 2000, so far away, still symbolized the future.
We are in 2015. And nothing happened as we had imagined it would.
"Airdrop": we are parachuted down into the real world of future in the present. Youngsters today are more motivated than ever before and express themselves on the walls of the city just like the prehistoric men did on the walls of caves. This is vital; for a fabulous spaceship is born that takes a place in our lives no one had anticipated. Without leaving one’s room, the computer links us to the web and erases time barriers and distances. Voices, looks, ideas and sounds are exchanged from one side of the planet to the other. That is Bocrew’s tool. He creates his sound universe on a synthesizer, captures samples and harmonizes them by tapping on the keyboards around him, as if in the limited space of a pilot’s cabin.
"Airdrop" is a healthy reminder of a reality where we demolish the rugged walls we run into. We bomb them away.
With colored bombs, for this is a pacific war to “have imagination reign”. We meet with friends in the cool early morning air, with the sound of the metro in the background. We dream that our endless graphs will one day lead us to worldwide recognition and we will show our work in galleries like other famous artists before us. Bocrew Thedeepr nourished those dreams. He was then a teenager and took absurd risks by running between the tracks of the Paris metro, or by popping up on the gabled rooftops to place a graph that could be seen by all. He listened to Hip Hop, to Techno or to House music. He went on to become a graphic artist, a musician of the contemporary world-wide-web.


2015, nous sommes dans l'espace intergalactique à bord d'un vaisseau spatial récupéré à la casse et rafistolé par le génie du bricolage. On capte des sons venus de la terre, des bribes de voix, des mélodies et des rythmes déformés par la traversée de l'espace-temps. À bord, l'équipage hétéroclite se bat pour la liberté, la diversité, l'amour entre les peuples. C'était l'utopie de Star Wars, la fin des années 70, l'enfance de Bocrew Thedeepr. L'an 2000 encore lointain symbolisait le futur.
2015, nous y sommes et rien ne s'est passé exactement comme nous l'imaginions.
Airdrop, nous voici parachutés dans le monde réel du futur au présent. S'exprimer sur les murs des villes comme les hommes préhistoriques le faisaient sur les parois des cavernes mobilise les jeunes plus que jamais. C'est vital, car un fabuleux vaisseau spatial est né dont personne n'avait anticipé, la place qu'il prendrait dans la vie. Sans quitter sa chambre, l'ordinateur relié à la "toile" abolit le temps et les distances. Voix, regards, idées, sons s'échangent d'un bout à l'autre du monde. C'est l'outil de Bocrew. Il crée son univers sonore sur synthétiseur, capte des samples et les agence en pianotant sur les claviers qui l'entourent comme dans l'espace confiné d'une cabine de pilotage.
Airdrop, rappel salutaire d'une réalité où l'on pulvérise les murs rugueux auxquels on se heurte à coup de bombes. De bombes de couleurs, car il s'agit d'une guerre pacifique pour "mettre l'imagination au pouvoir". Entre copains on se retrouve dans l'air frais du matin avec le métro en bruit de fond. On rêve qu'à force de graphes un jour on sera vu et reconnu comme de véritables artistes exposés en galerie à l'exemple des ainés. C'était le rêve de Bocrew Thedeepr adolescent à l'époque où il prenait des risques inconsidérés en courant entre les rails du métro parisien ou en surgissant sur le toit des immeubles pour grapher un pignon bien visible. Il écoutait du Hip Hop, de la Techno ou de la House. Il deviendra graphiste, aujourd'hui musicien du world wide web, la toile mondiale.


Who are you, TheDeepr ?
I am the founder of the Bocrew.

Could you explain to us what the Bocrew is ? Are you carrying some kind of a message ?
The Bocrew is a collective of beat makers. For a long time, rappers delivered their violent messages against society. They were angry, into the « struggle » as they say. Our message is a peaceful one, a positive attitude. We intend to contribute, to show to the world that hip hop can also broadcast a positive energy.

You use a lot of sound textures, samples, in your new album. Where does your inspiration come from ?
Actually, my inspiration comes from multiple influences. Music is like painting… Each style, each period of time, brings its own color, its color gamut. Electronic music, disco, hip hop, house music and most of all electro-funk from the 80s, to name the most influencing backgrounds...

Who would you name as your most influencing artists ?
The people who actually brought change to rap music are the ones who drew bridges between different styles, like DJ Spinna, who really succeeded in mixing electronic music, house music and hip hop.
Along with J-Dilla, King Britt and many more...
What drives us is the fusion of musical genres, the connections, between different worlds, different inspirations.

Your work is inspired by the life on the streets...
Oh yes. My friends and I, when we were kids, we used to go out and conquer the streets. We would express ourselves through graffiti. Of course, we wanted to be famous one day. There was an artistic, poetic dimension in our actions. We were dreaming that one day we would eventually be acknowledged for our work and our art would be shown in urban art galleries.

So why did you swap from the world of graffiti to music ?
Because I think that graffiti is still an efficient tool to become famous but the Internet is a wider web to be seen, especially through social networks. The web is no longer an urban area but it turns into an infinite range of possibilities.

Why did you call your album Airdrop ?
I wanted to give the idea of a burst of air, if that makes any sense, share the idea of change, of evolution, a progression into my music, like a breath of fresh air, but as compressed and thick as my sounds.

How do you intend to distribute your album, Airdrop ?
People will find it on the main online music stores.

Is there anything I forgot to ask you ?
Oh yes, we could have talked about Star Wars! Star Wars has crafted our culture, we grew up with it. With Airdrop, we use the machines to propel us into an intergalactic universe!

Thanks TheDeepr !
Thanks man !


Who are you, TheDeepr Bocrew and Soulsidious ?
Fondateur du Bocrew

C’est quoi le Bocrew, ils portent un message ?
Le Bocrew, c’est un collectif de beat makers. Pendant longtemps les rappeurs ont délivré des messages vindicatifs, ils étaient dans le « struggle », la lutte. Le message du Bocrew est un message de paix, de positivisme. Nous voulons contribuer à faire en sorte que le hip hop balance une énergie positive.

Il y a beaucoup de textures sonores, des samples, d’où te vient ton inspiration ?
En fait, mon inspiration est multiple, chaque genre, chaque époque apporte sa coloration, sa palette de tons. Musique électronique, disco, hip hop, house music et surtout l’électro-funk des années 80.

Si t’avais à citer des artistes :
Les gars qui ont fait un changement dans le rap et un pont entre plusieurs genres, comme DJ Spinna qui a fait un pont entre la musique électronique et la house music et le hip hop. Mais aussi J-Dilla, King Britt et bien sûr plein d’autres.
Ce qui nous inspire c’est la fusion des genres, passer d’un monde à l’autre, créer des passerelles.

Tu t’inspires beaucoup de la rue...
Oui parce que quand j’étais petit avec mes potes on partait à la conquête de la ville, on s’exprimait par le graffiti, l’idée c’était de se faire connaître, il y avait une dimension artistique, poétique, on rêvait d’être un jour reconnus et être vus dans une galerie d’art urbain.

Pourquoi passer du monde du graffiti à la musique ?
Parce que je pense que le graffiti reste un outil assez efficace pour se faire voir mais Internet est une toile mondiale où on peut se faire un nom, via les réseaux sociaux notamment. La toile n’est plus seulement le tissu urbain mais un champ des possibles décuplé.

Pourquoi ton album s’appelle Airdrop ?
Je voulais transmettre l’idée d’air projeté, donner la notion de changement, d'évolution, une progression dans ma musique, comme une bouffée d’air frais mais aussi compressé et dense que mes sons

Comment tu vas distribuer ton album ,?
Les gens pourront l’acheter sur les principaux sites de musique en ligne.

J’ai oublié de te poser une question ?
Bah oui, on peut parler de Star Wars. Star Wars a façonné notre culture. on a grandi avec. Avec AIrdrop, on se projette à travers les machines dans un univers intergalactique !

Merci mec.
