THYLACINE is the scientific name of the Tasmanian wolf, a species that became extinct 70 years ago. A precious word, that William Rezé has chosen to tame so as to incarnate his progressive and vaporous electronica. The thirst for freedom is part of his DNA and has always driven him to search for new musical horizons. Each individual track is imbued with a singular flavour and reveals the breadth of the artist’s cross-influences: from repetitive music pioneers – such as Steve Reich or Philip Glass – to John Zorn’s jazz experimentations and Massive Attack’s trip-hop. THYLACINE’s music combines the cadenced and melancholic techno of Paul Kalkbrenner with the aerial melodies of Moderat or Four Tet.
