Some artists cannot and should not be squeezed into tiny restrictive categories. EVIL NEEDLE undoubtedly belongs to those.
Originally known to spin records since the early years of our millennium, this fervent French German DJ rapidly mutated into a prolific beatmaker. Not only reminiscent of some of the gems Doctor L crafted at the pinnacle of his creative effort, EVIL NEEDLE’s savvy and finely chiselled productions are unique and pervaded with his many and multifaceted influences, just like his numerous collaborations and featurings. In short, EVIL NEEDLE sails against the stream, and this is all the more obvious and enjoyable when this 90’s Hip Hop fiend sidesteps from his know-how in terms of crystal-clear and luminous sounds to revert – as naturally as can be – to rougher productions spitted from his guts, thereby joyfully taking us back to the golden age of this trend and to what it lied at its core. In doing so EVIL NEEDLE knows exactly where to sting: half-way between antipodes.
