Jean Rouch, born in 1990, is an only child from a working class area. To some he is viewed as the ‘local mad man’ but Jean Rouch is simply on a much larger agenda.
Rouch is a man frustrated with the modern world; at the corruption, the propaganda and the distractions made by the media and politicians to cover up war, poverty and greed. A man concerned by the world’s biggest legal addiction: Technology. A man who sees the world for what it really is. He sees it in its true colours.
In the form of music, Jean desperately tries to show people what’s really happening in the world. To make people realise that they are turning a blind eye to grave misconducts.
Racketeer is Jean Rouch’s first release, a sorrowful and harrowing guitar piece with heavyhearted drums and melancholic undertones. It has a sort of ‘going to war’ march to it, as though there’s a revolt on its way.
Whilst it’s an instrumental piece, the animation video that accompanies tells the full story with an important message. The animation shows how the working class work only to line the pockets of the rich and further their greed and wealth. It shows how the working class are simply cogs in a machine that feed the rich and make them richer.
Jean Rouch is opening our eyes and putting a stop to the indoctrination. He is starting a revolution, and it’s going to be huge.
