Everybody was kind, and as the place was revealed, people were getting stripped in a moist and friendly atmosphere. It was not a question of having a sex party or emphasizing nudity, but rather allowing people to let go, to let go in a safe and joyful atmosphere. It was a moment between humans, as one could imagine in nature, where bodies were alongside each other, to the rhythm of decadent music.
A night focused on love, in short. That night, and all the others that followed, we saw people like we'd never seen them before. It was important to create a real intimate connection with our audience, and at a larger scale to make Marseille by night a safe and warm place.

Q. What makes music special compared to all other art forms like literature, poetry, movies or fine art?
A. Before of all, it comes to us more than we come to music. Vazy Julie comes from the theatre at the beginning, other members of the collective from cinema or even photo, graphic design. It's not so much a choice as it is evidence. Over time, and by organising events on a regular basis we realized that music is above all a way to gather, to commune around a piece of art. There is this notion of catharsis which for us is the best expression of art, but also and above all is this instantaneity, this direct connection between music, the artist who is a creator or a transmitter, and the public.
Even if it doesn't actually convey a message in the same way as theatre or literature, for example, music delivers a strong message in the context of the party: it allows people to be alone together, to feel special vibes, to experience singular feelings in the same place and at the same time, and finally to become a whole.
There is something almost hidden in music, it provokes more than it evokes. There is a universality in the reception of music, everyone can be sensitive to it in his or her own way, regardless of class or age, illiteracy or cultural luggage. For us, this is the best way to make the world of ideas sensitive in a festive and human context.
Q. What means fashion to you and how can fashion - in your eyes - represent a lifestyle or attitude?
A. Fashion is very connected to music. Look in history books, each musical trend has been accompanied by its own fashion and way of life. We were often asked to define our respective clothing styles, and each time it was difficult to answer. We will simply say that fashion, clothing, is for us the means to convey the codes of the world we try to create every day but also a means of expression within the world to which we belong. It is a mixture of influence and fantasy, a way of saying who we are and who we would like to be.
