Artist verifiedGuillaume & The Coutu Dumonts

Forever with his thumb cocked looking for the next creative thrill ride as the sun goes down, Guillaume Coutu-Dumont’s music lends itself to the indigo hue of dusk, imbued with the sultry allure of jazz, the unquestioned groove of house, and the propulsion of techno.

Guillaume & The Coutu Dumonts


After studies in electroacoustics, Latin and classical percussion, Guillaume Coutu Dumont established himself as fixture of Montréal's leftfield microhouse and techno scene—with Artificiel’s Julien Roy as EGG and in Chic Miniature with Ernesto Ferreyra, in the early days. A move to Paris first then Berlin in 2007 hatched solo project Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts, a propulsive fusion of house, jazz, gospel, techno, and Afrobeat. More collaborations followed, such as ambient venture Museum and percussive five-piece Guillaume & The Side Effects. Back in Montréal a decade later, he formed Flabbergast with Vincent Lemieux, released an EP under the moniker Vieux Renard and launched Auflassen, a trio of live drums, keyboards and electronics. His latest project to date, an hour long synthesizer piece entitled Les Empires debuted at the 21st edition of Mutek Festival in September 2020.
