College is David Grellier, born in 1979 in Nantes. In the late ‘90s, he acquired his first computer with which he produced several demos influenced by artists such as Jeff Mills and Aphex Twin; and labels such as Soma Records, Peacefrog and Warp.
In April 2007 he started Valerie, a blog that has become both a record label and an expanding cultural network of international artists. That same year saw him release his first self-produced album, Teenage Color EP, which put him into contact with the German illustrators, The Zonders. They have continued to work together since, with The Zonders providing their signature graphic style for the album covers of Secret Diary (2008), Northern Council (2011) and A Real Hero EP (2009). Invada Records recently released College’s debut album Secret Diary and EP Teenage Color on physical formats in the UK for the very first time.
In 2011, Nicolas Winding Refn chose ‘A Real Hero’ by College feat. Electric Youth as the theme song for his acclaimed film ‘Drive’, which then went on to win the award for Best Director at the Cannes Film Festival.
