Hailing from the southern French city of Marseille, Simon Henner's synth-heavy style is sometimes heavy and often times dreamy. It plays like a sonic lens flare in the neon night, and while it rings evident throughout his career (he's produced French singer Kid Francescoli's recent albums and worked as a guitarist in a number of bands), it's best exemplified on his solo work as French79. His debut LP Olympic employs glorious melodies and driving house rhythms to build euphoric tunes perfect for club dance floors or nocturnal car rides.Hits “Between The Buttons” and “Diamond Veins” with Sarah Rebecca brought him to stages across Europe, but his forthcoming album Joshua, set for release in November, is designed to launch him worldwide.
Currently there are no planned tour dates.
