Getting to Know Didier Recloux: Music, Inspiration, and Life

Guys! Today, we’re discovering the universe of Didier Recloux, a Belgian composer who makes music on another level in London. It was in the family that music was in his veins, where instruments and melodies from his Polish side surrounded him.

Recently Didier put out his latest single “First Walk” and it came with a sweet music video. This song isn’t only about music, it is about feeling lonely among many people when you are surrounded by others and still you feel so alone. The song was influenced by the novel and it includes a bit of jazz and rock to create contemporary atmosphere of a refugee finding comfort in disorder.

While with Didier, he is always seeking expiration from everything close to him, whether it’s a script, or just an ordinary moment of life.His music style? It is rather a combination of all the sounds he loves with a small portion of atmosphere and emotion.

Besides this, when Didier is not making music, he loves to explore languages, art, and think deeply about life’s big issues. And even though music is everything to him now, he recalls that he would still be involved in music in some way if he wasn’t a composer.

Unwind, relax and accompany us on our journey to meet the man behind the voice, Didier Recloux.
