Canadian-born Chilly Gonzales made his name as a dj in Germany and debuted with the progressive hip-hop album Gonzales Uber Alles (2000) and the more convetional The Entertainist (2000), in which he turned rapper with uneven results. After Presidential Suite (2002), another mediocre attempt at rapping, Gonzales moved to France and inaugurated the major stage of his production career, notably for Feist's jazzy Let It Die (2004). His most ambitious project was Solo Piano (2006), a collection of impressionistic ambient vignettes in the tradition of Erik Satie. A close second (in terms of ambitions) was Soft Power (2008) that harked back to the piano-based singer-songwriters of the 1970s. Ivory Tower (2010), de facto a collaboration with German producer Boys Noize (Alexander Ridha) was a (mostly instrumental) movie soundtrack that hinted at old-fashioned house music. His career was unpredictable, and his albums derailed by wildly different styles, but Gonzales rarely delivered a memorable song. (Translation by/ Tradotto da xxx)
