About Kermesse Machine:

Recorded in Berlin, Brussels and Rome, “Kermesse Machine” mixes the exotic and glamorous pop of Manu’s childhood with the cheap sounds of Belgian popular music that he always did his best to ignore (brass bands, Euro Dance, industrial trance, synth music for wedding parties…).

The former singer of Funk Sinatra defines his record as “a mountain of plastic littering the streets the day after a party, a digital tropical marching band, a man that gives his all at a karaoke session as there is nowhere else to sing, a virtuoso gypsy playing synth using the sound of a trumpet”.
