Cartridge 1987 is the first solo project of Drich, French artist and member of Grand Soleil.
A die-hard fan of science fiction films from the 80s and video games from the 90s to the present day, Drich is inspired by these infinite and cinematic imaginaries, imbued with Fantasy. « Cartridge » was written on all the cartridges for video games of the time, especially those of the SEGA « Mégadrive ».
His second album, scheduled for the 15th of October 2021 and entitled « Passage » tells a story where each of the 12 tracks immerses us in an autonomous universe, very strongly imbued with the staging of the first video games. Drich likes to compare the structure of his project to that of the television series “Sliders” which aired in the 90s, where one would travel from one song to another via a passage between the worlds.
This album is like a trip, in which the spectators open doors towards new universes…
