Vald – Désaccordé

To promote his album “Agartha,” Vald went on Le Grand Journal and performed his single “Eurotrap” while dressed as Donald Trump. He then left the set in his underwear.

Ryo Miyauchi: Neither the beat nor rapper amount to much beyond their inspirations, though it’s not that bad of a recreation. Vald’s detached yet nimble flow brings back a more energized Future. The trap-music gloom of “Désaccordé,” meanwhile, collects the fine sounds of Metro Boomin’, specifically his work with 21 Savage: the beat’s foggy wash and the prickly, insect-like synths would not sound far off as a bonus track of Savage Mode.

Thomas Inskeep: This hyperactive French rapper uses Auto-tune to his advantage — and, like Kanye so many years ago, as an instrument rather than a lazy gimmick. Alternately chill and breathless, this is a definite earworm.

Nortey Dowuona: Bad.

Anthony Easton: I am not sure that Vald is playing with the beat very well, and I am also not sure that he is deconstructing the beat by not following it.

Iain Mew: The vocal processing lends a certain carousel smoothness to the perpetual speed and motion of “Désaccordé.” Short of any switches flipped before the very end and its graceful glide to a halt, it gets pretty limited as an effect soon enough.

Katherine St Asaph: The title (roughly “out of tune”) is overstating things; this is solidly down the middle of post-Future rappers. Maybe you have to be in France.
