Logo is simply described as a “whats-the-point” duo – unable to sing, has nothing to prove. But somehow we always get excited when a new track of the French 2-member act comes out. You probably know them as part of the Kitsuné family and their remix work for Mark Ronson, Django Django, Bot’Ox, and Yelle.
We had a conversation with Thomas and Hugues and we’re eager to share it on the day their latest record is being released. “Jacob & Fabrice” is their third EP that contains two excellent electro originals, and three remixes from Darabi, Crackboy, and 5kinAndBone5. You can already order it on Kitsuné’s shop or iTunes.

Why Logo? Where does the name come from?
We wanted a name without a “K” and a “X” in it… Plus, the aesthetic of the word is a bit more obvious than other words. We like the idea that the name could raise questions, but it is unclear answer, yet we are not insulations.
And how about “Hello.jpg”? I always wondered what the inspiration behind the track name is.
Turn off the parental filter on Google, tape “Hello.jpg” in the google search engine bar, go to “Images”, and enter in this new psychedelic hole.
Who does what? Does each of you have special obligations in the process of producing a song?
We do this very naively, we arrived with ideas, sounds, rhythms, we try many things, we really try to induce random in the producing process. There is no specific role.
How does it feel to be a part of the Kitsuné family?
The Kitsuné family is a very big one now, a lot of different bands, from different countries have done things with Kitsuné. It could bring some interesting stuff for us. Right now, we really work in our corner, we have very specific ideas of what you want to do. We remain locked in our room a bit without paying much attention to our family, like adolescents. We often think of them.
Have you considered releasing an album?
Yes, we considered it a lot.
Can you tell us three interesting facts about Logo?
We are very distressed by the idea of doing the same thing twice, we are still too young to do that. However, we can eat duck for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it’s not a problem for us. We like to put frustration and tension in our music, so sometimes we may not eat duck for 2 or 3 days.
What’s the best thing about Paris?
Every time we return to Paris, sweet home, we cry of joy. This city is like an excellent movie, everything is consistent, even in its faults, the actors are all very good and beautiful, the decorations are perfect. The title of this movie could be “Girls & Foods”.
What’s the first song you heard today?
“I’m So Tired” by The Beatles.
If you had to remix a super commercial song of a super commercial pop diva, what would it be?
We are very into Nickie Minaj, except all her uptempo tracks featuring David Ghetto, but we really the way she sing, and her voice seems to be very malleable.
What can we expect from Logo in the coming months?
A new digital EP for physical dance.
