French electronic act to perform in Ha Noi
HA NOI — Well-known French electronic artist Alex Millan is set to perform at the French cultural centre l'Espace in Ha Noi next month, after great success in the capital in 2010 and 2011.
The 30 year-old producer and DJ took part in Ha Noi Sound Stuff, an international electronic music festival in 2010, and was highly acclaimed by the Vietnamese public. The same year, he released his first album The Collection: Triple. His tracks are also featured on records by Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, Paul Kalkbrenner, Trentemoller and James Zabiela.
After 15 years in the industry, Millan's music wavers between rhythm, melody, and melancholy. With a style marked by his experiences and inspirations, he seduces wide audiences in search of electronic stars.
Tickets for the concert will go on sale at l'Espace, 24 Trang Tien from tomorrow. — VNS
