Charles Dollé, aka Cvd, is a French producer of electronic music. Originally a guitarist, he was a student at the Groupe de Recherche Musicale (GRM) for two years. As a musician fascinated by concrete sounds, his work on sound/acoustic material is directly drawn from the electro-acoustic music, which he nonetheless moves away from through his minutely crafted rhythmics that preside over his productions, and through his attention to constant harmony.Read More
He discreetly launched a first EP in 2011 before being noticed in 2014 with “Surgical Goldsmith ”, an EP that tended resolutly towards “beat music”. XLR8R* or even Astro Nautico * describe him as a “sonic wizard” artfull in his fusion of aesthetics. Indeed, one of the main concerns of this young composer is not to be constrained by patterns and codes proper to one style, preferring the synthesis of genres to artistic formality. He’s also producing a rap band called Majin Blobfish*, dropping out their debut album on Camelto records, the label he founded in 2016. After performing on the famous stage of the Bikini in Toulouse, alongside Isaac Delusion or Griefjoy, the young producer did multiple live apparitions with Submerse, amongst others, the talented Japanese Daisuke Tanabe or more recently opening at Paris for Ras G (Badaboum) and Shobaleader (New Morning) ..
Producteur touche-à-tout, Cvd se fait remarquer en 2014 avec son EP « Surgical Goldsmith » sorti chez Velour. XLR8R* ou encore Astro Nautico* y voient un « sorcier sonore » habile dans la fusion des esthétiques. Puisant ses influences de la scène Beat californienne à l’école minimaliste de Steve Reich, en passant par la French Touch et au Jazz des années 70, le jeune producteur cherche à brouiller les frontières entre les genres. Son 1er album intitulé « Elsewhere Nowhere », est sorti en 2017 chez Cascade Records.
