Having been taught the ropes by her mother, from rhythm over musicality to a sense of humour and not taking herself too seriously, Adigéry got into music from an early age. Through mutual friends (after all Belgium is a tiny country) she was asked by the Soulwax brothers to lip-sync a song of theirs for the 'Belgica' soundtrack they were producing at the time. As soon as they heard her voice the acting job quickly turned into a studio session... and another... and another. The Dewaele brothers paired her with DEEWEE-regular Bolis Pupul and soon they started started working on a re-enactment of their mutual histories, resulting in lots of heart-to-heart confessions and a local brew by the name of ti'punch, not to mention two EP's for DEEWEE.
Charlotte Adigéry's music making is all about playing around until she hits a nerve and something feel-good starts bubbling up - following that vein wherever it may lead. For eclectic as her music may sound, combining bits of smartphone-recorded conversation with synths as sticky as molasses, Adigéry's voice blends all the elements together in a chocolate and vanilla swirl of holistic beats.
Premeditation is an action that is alien to Adigéry's music making: it's all about playing around, hitting a nerve until some feel-good hormones start bubbling up and following that vein of pure, sparkly gold wherever it may lead. So, yes, this could be called experimental, but not as a reference to the genre. More like: if we put Mentos in a Coke bottle and shook it for 32 seconds, would it explode?

"It's a good call because she attracts the biggest crowd of the night and the show ends up being like a surreal out-of-body experience. Adigéry and her musical partner Bolis Pupal are both on a stage which, in itself, is on another, slightly larger stage, where some of the crowd are allowed to stand and dance - the rest of us are directed to the red velvet seats, surveying the scene like it's a play. Certainly it adds a degree of fun theatricality (albeit it's frustrating feeling one step removed), and Adigéry is mesmerising regardless, voguing and grinning as she sings the intoxicating refrain from 'Paténipat' over the pulsing beat: surely she is the future of pop?"
