Electric Fantastic Sound (May 2007):

Mainly guitardriven pop with some electronic backgrounds, 16 Pac's music is probably best placed in the same category as Björk or Portishead. Not an album for your party, but maybe for the afterparty? more

Past All Concerns (December 2006):

Endless Work In Progress describes and helps us understand feelings that other musics can only attempt to reach; one feels less alone while listening to it and finds  comfort, and (often...) cries; and this music has to be respected and  admired, in silence... more

Subba-Cultcha (August 2006):

A voice that’s rich, soft, full of an emotional grace and emotionless poise when required. It has the breathless, floating jazz folk sound of Solid Air period John Marytyn minus the roughened edges. A wonderful sound, just searching for the songs to devastate you…more (February 2005):

Sporting a Portishead meets Morr Music kind of vibe, 16PAC combines heroin-chic poetry and vocal seduction with superbly crafted low-end melodies and glitchy, skeletal beats. Emotionally provocative and instantly accessible, 16PAC is the folk music of the fiber-optic generation. more

Connexion Bizarre (October 2004):

There are things we learn to like. more



16pac is the synthesis of wide-ranging influences from Triphop, Postrock and Elektrofolk to Neil Young, Björk, PortisHead and RadioHead.
It all started in 2011 when Emma and François embarked on a new and exciting concept diverging from their earlier musical paths.
Their first EP "My Heart Is Full Of Music", made it into the august magazine Les Inrockuptibles' CQFD selection. The release of their second album "Endless Work In Progress", led to the band’s inclusion on Fnac Jeunes Talents’ CD and prompted them to play live with the addition of Vincent, their new bass-player. After their third album "Down Under The Elevator", the band felt that a new era had begun and that a drummer, in the shape of Eric, was now needed.
This new line-up will result in a live video and audio recording to be released in 2013.
Their records are avalaible in shops and from main online music stores through COD&S and Believe


Stay tune!
