About d'Eon

The output of the Dartmouth, Nova Scotia native Chris d'Eon provoked comparisons and references to vintage new age and contemporary experimental electronic artists, '80s mainstream pop, throwback house, and left-of-center R&B. The study of Arabic, Iranian, and Turkish music also informed his releases. A producer and singer who based himself in Montreal, Quebec, d'Eon released some cassettes, including the hour-long Wa Al-'Asr and a four-song set of Swans covers, prior to making his Hippos in Tanks debut with Palinopsia (2010). He and Grimes then shared Darkbloom (2011), a split release shared between Hippos in Tanks and Arbutus. On LP (2012), an unapologetically sprawling release, d'Eon indulged in all his whims to create a modern "What if?" concept album regarding the angel Gabriel. ~ Andy Kellman
