Like those legendary DJs known for their marathon sets at the world's hottest megaclubs, Cedric isn't afraid to experiment, take risks and ignore boundaries and genres evidenced by standout tracks like hit single "Spirit in My Life" featuring Caroline - already a staple in the sets of all the major DJs, and "Pills." Electronic music live act and Paul van Dyk's Vandit Record darlings Second Sun perform guest vocals on "Halfway Love" and "Touch."
While Experiment marks the beginning of Cedric's album work, it's by no means the DJ's first foray into original production. While his co-production work with hip hop producer Dallas Austin led to some memorable studio experiences with Duran Duran, Janet Jackson and Kelis, label issues kept the material unreleased. It was Cedric's first single for Ultra in 2002, "Burning," that launched him as a producer and artist. In addition to the new album, Cedric had a hand in one of the biggest tracks of the Winter Music Conference 2006 with his remix of Queen's "Another One Bites The Dust" along with Second Sun, which is finally getting a release on Positiva.
Cedric was born in Marseilles on the French Riviera and grew up listening to Laurent Garnier and pre-Homework Daft Punk. He began DJing when at only 15 years old, almost by accident, when he filled in for the scheduled DJ who was too intoxicated to play. After a stint in Saint Tropez, Cedric moved to Paris where he became the youngest resident ever at legendary and notorious Parisian gay club Queen. After the infamous crackdown on French nightclubs in 1998, Cedric moved to the American Riviera – South Beach, Miami – where the US dance scene was exploding and ready for the Frenchman's trademark blend of hard Euro house and global beats with residencies at Nikki Beach and Crobar.
