Trafyk Jam is a very long time friend, i know him since the late 80's. At this time, Trafyk used to rap every week in a show on BAZIN FM Radio hosted by Dj Dezyr (known as Xavibes the photographer). In this show, i was Trafyk's instrumental provider while Dj Dézyr was playing nice hiphop joints on the turntables. In 2004, we used to meet very often to talk about life and share our passion for music and one day he came in my home telling me : "yo Franck, i want to sing right now, i rap for more than 15 years, i want to try something else", i said "yeah, what a dope idea Jimmy, let's do that..."
So we start to build, recorded a lot of tracks on one take over beats specially produced for that from me and my brother Exxos. Unfortunately, we lost everything in a hard disk crash and illegible scsi zips, accapellas, beats were definitively lost...All these tracks are recovered files luckily saved on tapes and CDR backup.
This is what we decided to finally give you in this project untitled "Amères Tunes" (Bitter Songs).
So you are about to hear a Trafyk as you probably never heard before on his very first time singing.
This mixtape album is the result of an experimental work between him and me, recorded between 2004 and 2014 at the 5th Floor Lab that some of you might know.
Enjoy and thank you for your support and your listening.
