French touch innovator, weirdo-house prophet, the man who brought us the über-classic “Deep Burnt”: Meet the one and only Pépé Bradock. Very few house producers are held in the sky-high esteem as Julien Auger. For Roof.fm, Monsieur Bradock recorded a rare and truly special mix. In person, he turned out to be a gentle French eccentric. So, a bit like his music is the man himself? Only fitting then that we did an unconventional interview with him. We asked Pépé to verbally improvise to this mix, which is really a selection of personal favourites. Read and listen closely, you might learn a thing or two about the grand riddler Pépé Bradock.
