19 Mars 2014 – Disiz – Bataclan, Paris
I apologize for the delay in publishing this report, but I suffered for a few days of a toothache that prevents me to focus on anything. LOL. Any action I began taking me to 10x longer : I do not know where this will lead us chronic 😀 This is the fourth time I see Disiz on stage and if I return as often, it is because it still offers incredibly well controlled concerts and he constantly manages to renew itself. He is an artist that I love deeply and I was eager to discover the songs of his new album, "Trance-Lucid", a live.
For this evening at the Bataclan, I prefer to play my cushy, on the balcony : Disiz fans can sometimes be a bit foufou and I do not feel for pogoter attack on "Kamikaze". First two parts " 100 % rap "make us wait until his arrival on stage ; it is long and not very inspired, I'd like something a little less cliche what. Disiz has the audacity to draw inspiration from other themes as rap, so why not offer something ? This is an opportunity which. I do not understand.
The musicians take their places before us and euphoria escalates in the room. The public cries "Disiz ! Disiz ! Disiz ! » while the introduction of « Tetsuo » started. It's a nice nod to his last visit to Paris, in Olympia, which is precisely finished this piece (cf. Disiz - Olympia, Paris (2013)). Disiz begins title backstage and entered the middle of the song. I am delighted that it is the introduction of the concert, this is one of my favorites of this new era. The decor consists of two small LED screens arranged on each side of the stage that will broadcast all evening pseudo-inspired image of the visual world of the trilogy "Lucid". It connects directly to "Commuter Syndrome" and « Rap Genius » I put a lot of time to recognize ... The public is cleat, and knows all the words by heart ! I took four years to learn those "Moses", I will have to double those of « Rap Genius ». The characteristic gimmick "Bastards From the Poor" then resonates. I am very happy to hear this title that still works great live ; I am also quite surprised at the turn that takes the setlist from the concert. It is still in pieces that plague much moral as it should ! However the transition is perfect on the title « Kamikaze » – because for those who do not know the words of "Bastards From the Poor", the chorus makes reference : « Kamikaze jump ! Jump ! Jump ! Poor bastards ! Poor bastards ! I'm just a poor bastard ! ».
« Kamikaze », it's a little time that everyone expected tonight (the video is at the end of the article), I am rather surprised that it happens so early in the evening. The public is already so hot, but could have had more spunk after a title other than "Bastards From the Poor". Short, I comment, I criticize, but the continuous concert after a few words of Disiz. He goes on " It's my turn ", piece he stops after the first chorus saying he does not like to repeat what he did before – nice bluff for switching on " It's my turn 2 ». This is weaker than the original, but I must admit that the new live orchestration, which ends with a drum solo is absolutely brilliant. He then us a small snippet of "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" by Ol’ Dirty Bastard prior to chain on "The Best Rap C." – which is clearly not the best title of his repertoire ! It does however not work too badly with the public, but it's even better when it launches in "classic classical" par excellence : "J'pète The Seals".
He went backstage to change and musicians linked during this time of the introduction of "Echo". The live orchestration is perfect : I love the addition of percussion on the chorus, it gives a real shot boosts the song. It passes « Everything » I did not expect to hear tonight, but that is always a good time live. Other title than I thought not necessarily have : "Trance-Lucid", who, although it bears the name of the album, is not present on it. I am huge fan of that song since I discovered last year at the Olympia. Excellent moment, coupled with « Extra-Lucide » he performs a cappella. This is a nice prelude to " My love " which has become essential to any concert Disiz. As much as I am surprised by the choice of titles, as I find that the sequences are very smart.
MAD entered for "Spirals". So it's simple, to see MAD, imagine Miley Cyrus – same attitude, even look, same haircut. As "Echo", I'm quite a fan of live orchestration that has a pretty sudden boost on the chorus : " Tonight, I'm gonna take a ride ! I'll take a ride ! Outside, I'm gonna take a ride ! Car, right here, I turn spiral ! ». This is a very nice time even if MAD is too loose on the falsehoods to the end of the song 😀 Poor darling ! Disiz then takes a few minutes to talk with the audience saying : "You see I have a little theory. I think we all donate. And I think everyone is the king of something : in English, king of something. » The transition is found for all « King Of Cool » 😀 This is not the song that I prefer the album, I'm much more a fan of "F ** k Problems" you can find the video at the end of the article.
Miley Cyrus MAD rejoined Disiz on stage to perform their second title together : « Miskine ». It is a title that I like on the album, but the, it does not work. No fishing, no relief. Pity. There are almost more energy on "The Weight On Gravel", qui sample « Midnight City » de M83. The balance then extract "Nebula" (10 seconds to break everything) then makes out "Kadi", its nebula him 😀 The atmosphere is rather smooth this part of the show : you really feel the different stages of the setlist. He attacks « Luv (Take The Risk) » a cappella before being joined by his musicians. The live version is excellent, like with "Echo" and "Spirals" : percussion bring true relief to a piece. The public is madness at the end, and literally explodes when the first notes of "Moses" are heard. You've probably read my reports, more "Moses" : is the title of my favorite repertoire and I must admit that I waited all night ! It keeps the same direction as at previous dates, that is to say that at the time of the break : it is to separate the crowd into two parts (with difficulty) and crosses the room (as he can). as in 2012 (cf. Disiz - Bataclan, Paris (2012)), we can not specifically say that it goes smoothly, but anyway it is already venerated before down there. He goes on stage and greets us, this is the end of the main set.
The concert is obviously not finished, since the rest point which starts on "French Complexity" Originally interpreted with Simon Buret, singer AaRON – he did tonight in piano-vocal version with drummer. The staging is very smoky, which is unfortunate because he completely disappears behind the smoke screen at the time of the chorus. It could be a beautiful picture, especially as the song is more interesting like that that version of Pop Album. It continues with « Auto-Dance » which has also become a classic battle. The room is heated to block "Coughed coughed", extract of the EP "Lucid", which is full of great songs. He goes on " Little piece of heaven " and « Burn Out (Sayonara) » before ending the concert with « Kamikaze », two times in a row – making hysterical spectators. He even come part of his entourage on stage for the last, and asks the public to squat pit, in short a very good time live, exactly what I expected from this song !
Lots to say about this concert in conclusion. First of all I'm delighted to have had another opportunity to see on stage, it is always good even if I have not felt the same excitement as the Olympia last year. The show is still young, I think he interpreted for the first time some songs and why I sometimes apologizes for being too focused on technical rather than human. because indeed, it was not very talkative : securities chained themselves fairly quickly with transitions I imagine usual. J'Loved the setlist, surprising departure, but so varied : it's a real pleasure to hear these songs collected here and there in his repertoire and form a perfectly coherent to final. This is what I find important in a show. The live made the last album is great, I loved "Echo", "Spirals", « Kamikaze » obviously, or "Luv (Take The Risk) ». also delighted to see the titles I like to hear as "Moses", "My Love" and "poor bastards".
I found less interesting staging on the previous tour. I do not know if that is what it takes elements already used in 2012 in 2013, or if it's because she did not dream this little side ; with heart "Extra Lucid" that overlooked the stage and was accompanied by lighting scenes worked very, this is less the case here I feel. The energy in the audience was however excellent, as usual what ! His fans are madmen, who put all their strength to sing and move ; it is a pleasure to see how the audience is responsive to Disiz. I hope he will return in Paris later in the year, with a live totally prowled in which he will be released from the structure he has imagined. It ends with photos and entertainment videos. The pictures are as always with him, failures : It is dimly lit directly, which makes any uptake difficult. The videos are on my backup YouTube (first time I used), pending that takes away the warnings I received on the main chain.
