Bambounou

Born Jere­my Guin­do, Bam­bounou is the prod­uct of a vast inter­nal land­scape where he roves freely in search of inspi­ra­tion. Just as his alloyed French-Malian-Pol­ish back­ground has grown him a strong back­bone of musi­cal inde­pen­dence, so too has his love for astro­physics and dystopi­an sci-fi been dis­tilled into futur­is­tic inter­pre­ta­tions UK tech­no, IDM and trib­al sources.

Bam­bounou’s for­ward-think­ing, genre-push­ing pro­duc­tions have seen the sin­gu­lar artist release on revered labels such as 50 Weapons, Disk and more recent­ly AD 93 (for­mer­ly known as WHITIES) but to name a few. 

Spend­ing the past few years hon­ing his sound and tech­nique, Bam­bounou, a key fig­ure in the Parisian scene, has gained his posi­tion from his genre bend­ing and jubi­lant elec­tron­ic music pro­duc­tions and lay­ing down sol­id freight train DJ sets around the globe. Born Jere­my Guin­do, Bam­bounou is the prod­uct of vast inter­nal land­scape where he roves freely in search of inspi­ra­tion. Just as his alloyed French-Malian-Pol­ish back­ground has grown him a strong back­bone of musi­cal inde­pen­dence, so too has his love for astro­physics and dystopi­an sci-fi been dis­tilled into futur­is­tic inter­pre­ta­tions UK tech­no, IDM and trib­al sources. 

His effort­less strad­dling of exper­i­men­tal eclec­ti­cism and 4×4 beat mas­tery helped Bam­bounou to ear­ly on catch the eye of Mod­e­se­lek­tor, whose 50Weapons released two albums and five EPs of his axiom break­ing dance incan­ta­tions. His ever evolv­ing and for­ward think­ing pro­duc­tions have since seen release via AD 93 (for­mer­ly known as WHITIES), 021’ in 2019 made seri­ous waves fol­lowed up in 2020 by 033’. 

Bambounou’s orig­i­nal­i­ty and crafts­man­ship has earned him some first rate remix­es with the likes of Lau­rent Gar­nier, François X, Italo­john­son, Batu & Lur­ka, Loco Dice, Jessy Lan­za and Sam­pha. Col­lab­o­ra­tions with Mar­garet Dygas, Bruce and Simo Cell also demon­strat­ed his abil­i­ty to inno­vate both cre­ative­ly and tech­ni­cal­ly. Add to this his expe­ri­ence ratch­et­ing up the dance floors of some of the world’s best loca­tions like Berghain/​Panorama Bar, Con­crete, De School, Freero­ta­tion, MoMA PS1, Ter­rafor­ma, Unsound, Aton­al, Nuits Sonores etc. and it should come as no sur­prise that Bambounou’s upcom­ing releas­es are being served with a healthy dose of anticipation.

2019 saw Bam­bounou release his debut EP on the renowned WHITIES label (now known as AD 93), a mem­o­rable Boil­er Room set at Italy’s roBOT Fes­ti­val and a hec­tic gig sched­ule includ­ing stand-out sets at Ter­rafor­ma, Aton­al, Unsound, Horst, DGTL Ams­ter­dam, Low­lands, Polaris, Mon­treux Jazz, Gottwood Fes­ti­vals and many key club dates. 

Bam­bounou looks to ramp things in 2021 with key shows already con­firmed at the likes of Dek­man­tel (main stage), Nachtiville, Junc­tion 2, ION Fes­ti­val and lot’s more.
