Velour Modular is a collaboration project between the French singer Guilhem (who recently featured in Nick Warren’s Master Series) and London based Spanish producer Hektagon, whose remix credits include Alex Paterson from the Orb, Baobinga, ID and more. Musically speaking they share a love of Kuedo’s melodic synth motifs, the bubbling electronica of Seekae, the spacious, hallucinatory elements of Clams Casino and wrap it all in a Mount Kimbie haze. They also completely love Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.
On her debut EP, Capsule, the experience known as Velour Modular shares a love of Kuedo’s melodic synth motifs, summon the bubbling electronica of Seekae, the spacious, hallucinatory elements of Clams Casino, the shuffling percussion of Phon.o, and wrap it all in a Mount Kimbie haze.
A native of Cannes, and the daughter of two painters, Guilhem spent her childhood growing up in India, originally studying how to sing in the traditional Indian way. Moving from town to town, Pondicherry, Madras, Bangalore, she travelled a great deal, before returning to France and immersing herself in the creative world. Velour Modular was a project that ultimately came to existence over late night Skype calls between Guilhem and Hektagon.
