Tchami closes the work with the single “Adieu” and “Adieu Pt. 2”, the latter taking on a more spatial and minimalist atmosphere. He deepens the EP and the creative process with Dance billboard, below.
Why did you end up titling the EP Revelations?
I wanted to reveal another side of what I can do musically. So it’s not an evolution, but rather the discovery of a new part of my personality that was already there.
Describe the creative process behind creating this EP and combining the songs?
I’m not going to lie, it was a painful process. My life changed dramatically when I started touring a lot more. It was difficult to finish any track when I was on the road and I needed to adjust to this new side of my life. I ended up with a lot of ideas but it was not enough. The fact that all of my Pardon My French buddies are also on tour has really changed the way we have to work together. Eventually, with a little time at home, some tracks started to make sense to me and I was able to finish the EP. This period of my life made me grow a lot and I am now much more resilient in my creative process. While I always love being in a room full of creative minds and seeing what we come up with, I think that’s what I love the most.
What was your favorite song to do an EP and why?
“Farewell” and “Farewell Pt. 2” were definitely those. When I wrote them it was like automatic, no struggle. All the pieces fell into place so easily. Mercer helped me a bit to clarify the structure of the song. At one point, I needed to confront my work with someone I trusted.
What did you want to achieve with this EP?
Share a little more of me with the world in a way that I can mentally handle. In other words, not repeating myself is a huge factor, otherwise I will be bored and not enjoy the experience at all. Like I always say, I’ll do this until this.
