“Beautiful Minds” sounds like an instant electro pop anthem for all the beautiful minds out there! This is the very first single released from Lagardere’s space pop performance MFEDL (Memories from Electric Distant Lands) - a one hour epic space ride ranging from deep pop electro to techno, with a set-up including led programming, visuals and scenic elements built especially for the show, which starts touring this year – the music carries a total feeling of freedom, a will of leaving any wrong energies behind, inspires getting rid of what holds you from loving deeply the most meaningful beings in your life.

Its challenging to get “Beautiful Minds” out of your head right after the first listening, as you will for sure find yourself singing its universal lyrics over and over, playing it again and again, letting you fill up with its addictable energy - it is especially recommended in the early morning.

Leading off with a haunting synth-chord melody which runs through the whole track, the song develops into an epic journey from darkness to light, keeping this personal touch which only Lagardere knows how to bring with his recognizable rock’n’pop voice blended with a talent to write stories sounding like legends from a glimpse into time. Yeah, we know we shouldn’t write that down, but c’mon, let’s face it, it’s a damn good dynamite pop&club hit!

Eric D. Clark (yes you read correctly, the one and only!) has created an incredible fresh synth disco remix hit, as only he knows how to cook with this hot stuff! The song suddenly takes on a brand new colour and hits you straight to the heart as if the journey was a deep inner one, with the main vocal guiding you with strength and love straight to fields of joy. It continues to build with a strong deep disco house bouncing bass, spiced with crispy hi-hats, melodic frenzy-ness, mellow pads and mad breaks, Eric gives us pure grooviness, a punchy brand new colourful rereading to the original version through a personal vision that the song seems to be re-born in his own hands. Not to mention the Beautiful Drum remix version with its shamanic bongos, so groovy that you’ll have to stand up and dance no matter where you are!

Magic, strong, carrying a deep and universal message that's hard to deny ~ a unique pack of brainy pop and club songs perfect for hot, sunny summer time.

About the artist


It would be difficult to categorize Lagardere, to put him in a box and to label him with a style well defined. His music is influenced by funk, jazz, hip-hop, techno. It is definitively the music in all its spectrum which revitalizes him every day and which he loves to distil with strength and a deep soul through his charmingly visionary sets and his productions.

His music is marked with a kind of soft madness, making him a most singular artist, and his recent hypnotic dancefloor gem "Pharaoh" proved it once again.

Lagardere has mastered his own musical vision without any strict genre boundaries. He has released tracks on Villa Magica, Vanina Hänin, Kawaya Music, Ai Records, Viking Music, and has brought to life numerous projects such as Subtone Trio, an electrojazz combo with his father, and the infamous electrorock combo The Living Dead Boys.

Playing in the underground scene in the mid-nineties, he quickly became involved in event organisation, running the Escobar, a basement devoted to electronic culture and live performances in Geneva.

For more than four years living in Berlin, Lagardere has played in every main club of the city, as well as traveled extensively around the globe making crowds dance, with a talent to build every set into a unique musical trip. Awarded in 2002 from the Ecole Supérieure des Beaux-Arts - Genève - cinéma section, Lagardere was born and raised into an artistic family, and began to learn music when we was 6 years old. His father was a professional trumpeter for 40 years, performing in the world acclaimed classical orchestra "L'Orchestre de la Suisse Romande".

Curious about all forms of music, he naturally turned to spinning records under different aliases. His still growing appetite for rhythm and non-stop passion for music continues to push him to study drum, piano and singing, allowing him to flourish as a drummer and lead vocalist in numerous local bands.

He’s gonna tour in 2018 with his electro solo pop performance MFEDL (Memories from Electric Distant Lands), a one hour epic space ride ranging from deep pop electro to techno, with a set-up including led programming and scenic elements built especially for the show. The release of the very first single extracted from the show “Beautiful Minds”, remixed by Eric D. Clark, is already out on Vanina Hänin

His first solo album MFEDL, on which his live act is based, will be released in 2018 on Vanina Hänin, physically, on vinyl, special limited edition.

His brand new project EERIA, a blend of techno and cinematographic moods, featuring the talented singer LaMeduza has been supported by Vice Magazine, which premiered on Noisey the music video NYX ft. LaMeduza.
