DISCOVER SOME RECENT WORK BELOW:
A self-taught artist and producer, 22 was born in Paris to a Mexican mother with roots in Los Angeles. He grew up cutting his teeth in the Parisian underground.
Under the scope of his creative label Red Expanse, 22 produced songs for artists such as Bonnie Banane (Mouvements), Ichon (FDP), and OKO EBOMBO (COP KILLER).
The Lobby, released in 2018, was the first introduction into his solo work as a multifaceted talent, composing, producing, performing the song, and directing the video.
Through his post-punk ballads, 22 draws the listener into his world of mist and lights, inspired by his time spent in Los Angeles.
Combining elements of modern RnB and Punk to create a darkness that you can dive in to, he is inspired by modern acts like PND as well as paying homage to legends like Iggy pop.
