So, I have been digging on Mr. Oizo since he dropped “When Analog Worms Attack,” and he continues to bring the heat.
Mr. Oizo (pronounced Mister Wah-zoh) is the pseudonym of French music producer Quentin Dupieux.
Dupieux is most famous for his electro track ‘Flat Beat’, which became a hit all across Europe in 1999 as it was featured in a series of Levi’s jeans TV commercials. Dupieux also directed the ad, which featured a yellow puppet named Flat Eric nodding his head to the sound of the track while riding in a pickup truck. Flat Eric later appeared in the music video for “Flat Beat”. After “Flat Beat”, Oizo released his first album in 1999, Analog Worms Attack, featuring a single of the same name. In 2005, Oizo released his second album entitled Moustache (Half a Scissor). In 2006 and 2007, Oizo produced remixes for Kavinsky, Jamelia, Cassius, Scissor Sisters and, most recently, Calvin Harris.
Here is a few tracks, new and old, that I’ve been diggin on.
