Nude is a 25 years old music producer from Bordeaux. After the creation of 5 EPs since 2015, Nude of his real name Alexis Duru, spends most of his time in his home studio. Combining and superimposing brillant and dynamic sounds, sometimes dark and melancholic, he managed through titles like " California "with his 1 millions of listening to ma ke himself a place in the new landscape of french electro. Inspired by the club's energy fr om house music and hip - hop, his intimitate style, is a fine alliage of pop-dance -R&B. We also feel his inspiration from the UK Music (Jamie XX, Kastle, SBTRKT, Bonobo).

« Purple », his debut album release on Cascade Records , is the result of all his experience collected during during this last years. A unique opus that delivers all the quintessence of the art of Nude in which he plays with all the prism of colors, sometimes hot like in Idyll , Aurora or Lucid Love (single release in collaboration with Kitsuné ) and sometimes cold with some tracks more introspective and melancolic as Our Dream , Trouble and Gold Mermaid ; a sonic conceptual allegory of life, Nude means in his own way, moments of joys and blues of everyday. Trought this tracks, he delivers his values, to always go ahead, excel himself in his passion and creativity. He aslo decided for this project to collaborate with differents talented singers and artists f rom Fance, USA, Singapour and Italia (JJ, Rich Garvey, Anouré, Noko, Carmen Colla)

The album « Purple » look like Nude. A true musical autobriogra hy close to listening to oneself. He share with us his doubts, sorrows and his fear of the future of our world ... but with a real desir to try to create with his music an area of peace and freedom. « Purple » depicts a world that is both wild, gentle, natural and artificial. A constant struggle between love and lightning, violet in our eyes.


Nude est un producteur bordelais de 25 ans. Après la réalisation de 5 EPs depuis 2015, Alexis Duru (de son vrai nom) n'a cessé de composer de la musique électronique dans son home studio. Il a réussi à travers des titres comme California et ses 1 millions d’écoutes à se dessiner une place dans le paysage des artistes électro français. Inspiré par l'énergie club de la house et du hip-hop, son style intime est un alliage pop-dance-R&B. On y ressent les influences des producteurs anglais Jamie XX, Kastle, SBTRKT ou encore de Bonobo.

« Purple », son premier album signé sur le label Cascade Records, est l’aboutissement de toutes ces inspirations puisées ces dernières années. Un opus unique qui délivre toute la quintessence de l'art de Nude où il joue de tout le prisme des couleurs, tantôt chaudes comme dans Idyll, Aurora ou Lucid Love (single sortie en prélude de l'album en collaboration avec Kitsuné) tantôt froides avec des morceaux plus introspectifs et mélancoliques tels Our Dream, Trouble ou Gold Mermaid; une allégorie conceptuelle sonore de la vie exprimant à sa façon moment de joie et vague à l'âme du quotidien. A travers ces titres, il transmet ses valeurs, de toujours aller de l'avant, de se surpasser dans sa passion et sa créativité. Il décide également pour ce projet de collaborer avec de nombreux chanteurs et artistes talentueux de Bordeaux et du monde entier. (JJ, Rich Garvey, Anouré, Noko, Carmen Colla)
