A New Man, his first album, offers us an album tinged with soul, pop and hip-hop and from the first listen, we immediately feel the groove of Abakan. But to speak only about the melodies would be a heresy so much the texts of Abakan are full of sense, as his first singles showed it. A New Man is a must for lovers of good soul. .
Growing up near Paris, Abakan musical enlightenment came from listening to Earth, Wind and Fire and George Benson’s vocal madness from morning till night. His love for music came early on thanks to a musician/singer father who fortunately introduced him to everyone from Toto to Al Jarreau. This was the beginning of an initiatory journey marked by names like such as Phil, Curtis, Chaka, George, James, Michael or Al… "When others were dreaming of being the hero of the movie, I was only dreaming being the soundtrack" In 2014, released his 1st album titled « A New man » signed at "Modulor". A first, organic album, with a live feel. A mixture of influences without compromise. Characterized by many rich collaborations..(Electro Deluxe, Crystal Petit, Raphaële Atlan, Hkb FiNN etc) He composed all the songs and will have the chance to play them on famous Parisian stages like New Morning or Bellevilloise. In 2016, his music traveled during a mini Asian tour between Manila, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. Since 2018 he's been coming back every year with new tracks and will meet a real hit on Spotify with his latest track "Going Somewhere".
