The music, in confinement, this was a shelter?

Etienne DAHO. - The music, this is the basis of my life. In containment, I have had more time to listen, quietly, without the need to do something else. A active listening. Usually, I am all the time in the studio, not at home. There, it was a luxury to jump on the bandwagon without guilt since the whole world has stopped. I've listened to, among other things, the latest Allah-Las, which has a vibration in the summer. It was very beautiful, it was lunar, I opened the windows, I had impression to be in August, in a Paris deserted, like in a futuristic film. I have about 2,000 records, which is not very much, considering my age and that I started to buy it at 12-13 years old (laughs). When a disc is not for me, I give it. I'm not a collector, but a "complétiste". When I like an artist, I need to have it all. To see how it unfolds, how the artist makes her journey. Marianne Faithfull, for example, I have everything.

The idea of Record store Day, what is it?

The idea is to have fun, to self, to support the record stores, to accompany the culture. With the beautiful. What could be sexier than a vinyl ?
