The story

“Amazing sales!”

For several years in the marketing department of an Irish factory, Anthony designed slogans and promotional packshots to appeal to Sunday shopping center customers. Shopping on Sundays is indeed a common family pastime there, and to say that you’re doing well often boils down to replying: “I earn money, I spend it.”

Returning to live in France and nourished by his collaborations with Irish and English artists, the musician/graphic designer cut his teeth in garage rock, indie folk and hip-hop bands. The consumerism observed in the 40 shades of green country remains omnipresent around him and infiltrates his creations and lyrics.

At the end of 2016, he chose to exorcise this obsession with electro sounds and dancefloor pop. He then becomes Amadeus MOZZA, a self-deprecating mercantile pop alter ego. This allows him to exteriorize and deflect the contradictory discourses with which we are all imbued. His colorful introspections and his cynicism about consumerism are carried by heady pop melodies, sharp choruses, and rapped passages. Its EDM, afro or urban rhythms affirm the incisive and dancing character of a synthetic universe tinged with chiptune.

2017, Amadeus MOZZA starts to perform live with 2 musicians and a V-jay (video projections) and tests his repertoire on the stages of the French West.

2021 is the year of his 5-track EP PackCage. He then leaves comical hijackings for a sharper approach, with an international indie pop feel. Meant to be noticed, these productions are boosting his career by attracting new professional partnerships.

At the same time, the artist is preparing a minimal live set, marked by pulsing electro, to invade the stages as soon as the sanitary restrictions end.

PackCage: 5-track EP

EP out in September 2021 for streaming, download, CD and vinyl editions.

2021 is the year of Amadeus MOZZA’s EP. Most of its 5 tracks are upbeat and express a deep bitterness towards consumer society and its echoes in our behavior and desires.

The EP pun-title : PackCage, evokes how much the artist feels trapped in our consumerist conditioning. Opposite to lesson givers, Amadeus MOZZA positions himself as an antihero (or supervillain) laughing at our paradoxes, by his cynicism and the irony of his double-meaning lyrics.

Release schedule: 1 single or remix each month from May to November 2021, and EP release in September 2021.

The EP production evolves towards a more urban sound, sometimes tinged with house music. It also integrates mechanical sounds, sampled from reality. The EP tracks bring together colorful eclectic influences and styles, blended as collages and fusions.

Full lyrics

I am your best follower – You know I got you at the tip of my finger

I am your best follower – You know I got you at the tip of my finger
I’m a stalker in love with you – Tell me dear who likes you like I do ?

Stylish profile – Targeted ads, you’re being filed
I’ll tell you what you like – According to what you sow
I pick up your pebbles one by one – Your data is in the wind
I follow you closely, little Thumb – You will like what I sell
Every night I open your pages – I salivate on your images
I’m a stalker in love – Close to the heart and the blue thumb
With your photos my drive gets hard

I am your best follower – You know I got you at the tip of my finger
I’m a stalker in love with you – Tell me dear who likes you like I do ?

If you welcome me to your peep show – It’s where, you see, I’ll tend to go x2
You’ve signed it all to be spied on – Remember your hands are tied with mine
I’m just a stalker in love with you – Yes I’m a stalker in love with you x2

I am your best follower – You know I got you at the tip of my finger
I feed on all that’s on your profile – I feed on everything that makes you smile

I am your best follower – You know I got you at the tip of my finger
I feed on all that’s on your profile – I feed on everything that makes you smile
You’re the target for my advertising – You’re so perfect for what I am selling
I’m a stalker in love with you – Tell me dear who likes you like I do ?

I’m a stalker in love – selling – Who likes you like I do ? x2

Someone x4 – Please make me someone else, someone else, someone x2

I do what I want, guess who I’m running from – someone

Please rearrange my face, I can’t stand myself anymore – someone
Make me more beautiful, younger, I’ve always dreamed of it

Please make me someone else, someone else, someone
Please make me someone else, someone else …

Someone else, someone x2 – Someone

I would rather be deaf, don’t wanna hear my voice,
Change everything about me, I’ll pay you for my choice

Give me another face so that everyone loves me
To my eyes all I am a problem seems to be

Please make me someone else, someone else, someone
Please make me someone else, someone else …

Someone else, someone x2 – Someone

I can’t see myself in a mirror, I find myself pathetic
Would you like to erase my factory flaws?
Make me someone else, oh yeah do that for me
And I will be your host, I will bleed myself for you

You the model – You the Insta filter – You the musician
You the writer – You the graphic designer – You the host
You the producer – You the makeup artist – You the hairdresser
You the costume designer – The advertiser – The presenter
You the director – You the screenwriter – The SFX editor
You the make-up artist – You the stylist – The artistic agent
Plastic surgeon – you the gravedigger

Please make me someone else, someone else, someone
Please make me someone else, someone else …

Someone else, someone x2 – Someone

  • Styles : House-Pop / Future Bass (+ dubstep)

Full lyrics

We are on emergency mode, emergency mode is on
We are on emergency mode, emergency do not run

Stay home or come down to my store
Please proceed to the (non-)meeting point
This shop will be your favourite prison
Walk without panicking, avoid crowds

Gimme your money, give me all,
Ordre d’abandonner toute activité prestement
Gimme your money, and your soul
Soyez heureux devant vos écrans

We are on emergency mode, emergency mode is on
We are on emergency mode, emergency do not run

Please proceed to the (non-)meeting point
(Come closer)
Walk without panicking avoid crowds
(Closer)
Come and consume in our huge shopping centers
Withdrawal into yourself is a time bomb

This is not an exercice !
We are on emergency mode, emergency mode is on
We are on emergency mode, emergency do not run

I’ll tell you what it’s all about – Are you starting to feel funny ?
Anyway there’s no point getting out – Except for spending money
Physical contact is not allowed – So why want to jump into the crowd ?
Do you enjoy staying in a box – If you do then it’s a paradox

Feel cosy at home on your pillow – With candy at hand to swallow
Do you feel like a beast in a cage – Fighting inside to hold your rage

We are on emergency mode, emergency mode is on
We are on emergency mode, emergency do not run

This is not an exercice !
We are on emergency mode, emergency mode is on
We are on emergency mode, emergency do not run

  • Styles : Trap / Rap / Pop / Collage

Full lyrics

Ads gonna pop and you’re here in that shop
So what you’re gonna do, what you’re gonna do ?

You run to the supermarket for your favorite brands
You can’t say no to my introductions
You slip between my shelves and my new products
You are in your element nothing else makes you happy
You so want to bite you so much want to taste it
This flesh so tender that you dream so much of taking
That fresh juice flows, you’re two fingers away from touching it
You are so close to plunging again, nothing will be able to stop you

Desire – Here’s my product range
Empire – There’s nothing you can change
Desire – Here’s my product range
Here’s my product range, you even dream of it at night

You’re so hungry, you’re starving, you can’t get a hold of that feeling
You need to get ammunition, enough to fuel the engine
You can’t get rid of that urge, the big void inside that burns
These eager flames you feed, until you grab everything you need
You’re the pathetic bulimic of authentic plastics
You manage, you ingest, your libido exaggerates
As long as your card is credited you have the pass to consume
The bill will be steep, your addiction will be discounted

Desire – Here’s my product range
Empire – There’s nothing you can change
Desire – Here’s my product range
Here’s my product range, you even dream of it at night

Something makes you feel hollow
Some void you refuse to see
An urge you need to follow
Is that who you wanna be ?
Something makes you feel hollow, is that … ?

Desire, empire, desire
Here’s my product range, you even dream of it at night

Desire – Come get some, come get some
Empire – Whatcha gonna do when there’s no more ?
Desire – Can’t say no, you can’t say no
So what you’re gonna do, what you’re gonna do ?

Come get some – Here’s my product range
Whatcha gonna do ? – There’s nothing you can change
Can’t say no, you can’t say no – Here’s my product range
So what you’re gonna do, what you’re gonna do ?
Come get some – Here’s my product range
Whatcha gonna do – There’s nothing you can change
Can’t say no, you can’t say no – Here’s my product range
Here’s my product range, you even dream of it at night

Full lyrics

Cellophane dreams – Keep together in the past
What molds in the skull – What is broken

Wrap me up – To help me keep the past
Wrap me up – Oh, I wish it could last

Cellophane Dreams – A sandwich for a snack
From one subject to another – In the fridge

I need a freshpack – To carry it all inside
I need a freshpack – To keep enjoying the ride

Conserve me in – a cold space of your heart
Keep me at least – I’ll have a place to start … again
… again – … again
