Coop ✌️

Bigwax.io is not an online record store like the others!

For many years, we have been supporting independent artists and labels in the development of their online store on the short circuit model, for better remuneration for their work.

With a team of enthusiasts, all professionals in the recorded music sector, we operate at all levels: Consulting, Manufacturing, Distribution (WW), Logistics and Online Sales.

Synergy and common goal

Every day we put our experience as a distributor and e-merchant at the service of artists with the common objective of regularly offering exclusive and personalized editions (signed vinyls, numbered editions, merchandising, exclusive packs) for fans.

Coop: an ecosystem for independent creators

It is in a spirit of cooperation that independent artists and labels join Bigwax.io.

To highlight this proximity, our wish is to highlight all the independent artists and labels in cooperation with Bigwax.io with a "Coop" tag.

If this tag also appears on an article, it means that we are the only intermediary between them and you. By adding Coop products to your cart, you help pay them fairer compensation and help them continue to develop their artistic projects over time.

Thanks to you

Seul au piano, Lucien nous emmène le temps d'un premier album très personnel dans une rêverie profonde et tranquille. On passe en sa compagnie une douce matinée d'hiver à se remémorer de tendres souvenirs d'enfance.

Entre inédits et morceaux du Kimono Orchestra revisités, "Piano Matinée" conclut une trilogie discographique à peine passée, tout en ouvrant la voie à un avenir plus vaste. Universel, sensible, cinématographique, le langage piano parlé ici par Lucien nous ouvre à son monde musical sous un jour à la fois plus authentique et accessible.

L'album nous raconte aussi une histoire personnelle. Celle d'un grand-père - pianiste exceptionnel mais contraint de renoncer à en faire une carrière alors que la seconde guerre mondiale éclate - qui lui a transmit le goût de la musique dans sa petite enfance, avant de s'éteindre.

Bien des années plus tard, Lucien retombe sur de vieux enregistrements cassette de son ainé, fait peu après un rêve troublant où il jurerait avoir dialogué avec lui et décide de poursuivre le chemin à sa manière. En autodidacte, il affine son interprétation au piano pendant toute une année avant de se décider à la figer à l'été 2019 sur le mythique Steinway des Studios Saint-Germain.

Puisant avec liberté dans toutes ses influences - jazz, funk, classique, cinéma -, Lucien livre avec "Piano Matinée" un objet à part, aussi intime que mélodieux.


Alone at the piano, Lucien takes us the time of a very personal first album in a deep and quiet reverie. We spend a warm winter morning in his company remembering tender memories of childhood.

Between unreleased tracks and pieces from the Kimono Orchestra revisited, "Piano Matinée" concludes a barely-past record trilogy, while opening the way to a vaster future. Universal, sensitive, cinematographic, the piano language spoken here by Lucien opens us to his musical world in a light that is both more authentic and accessible.

The album also tells us a personal story. That of a grandfather - an exceptional pianist but forced to give up making a career out of it when the Second World War broke out - who gave him a taste for music in his early childhood, before passing away.

Many years later, Lucien falls back on old cassette recordings of his elder, shortly after has a disturbing dream where he swears to have dialogued with him and decides to pursue the path in his own way. Self-taught, he refined his interpretation on the piano for a whole year before deciding to freeze it in the summer of 2019 on the legendary Steinway at Studios Saint-Germain.

Drawing freely from all his influences - jazz, funk, classical, cinema - Lucien delivers with "Piano Matinée" a separate object, as intimate as it is melodious.
