BandEDMHip Hop

After mixing in their capacious blender such artists as Roots Manuva, Flying Lotus, D’Angelo, Jay Dee & Warp Freaks, these musicians from Lyon are now going their own way through stage performance. A freshly delivered Electro Hip Hop served with a massive sound, improba- ble beats and a mutant MC. The whole played, mixed live and cranked out, as in the making of a vinyl turntablism !

Biography

Elby DILLINGER (MC)
A protean singer/MC, Elby carries on the legacy of a demanding and open-ended soul/hip-hop culture. Leaning toward avant-gardism, he is the common denominator between incisive flow, soul voices and lofty punchlines. An inspired free-styler, he sounds each word with unique expertise,
(kind of firing scud salvos thickly wrapped in velvet)
> David KILEDJIAN (Keyboards, Vocals, Production)
Poly instrumentalist, composer, arranger and producer grasping at myriad inspirations, David was able to bring the musicians of Fowatile under the aegis of a fine-honed, inventive and boisterous production. On stage, no sequence, no sample. All musical parts are played and sound like the record productions of the referent genre.
> Benjamin DEREI (Live Master Control, Production)
After years of research in computer music technology, Benjamin has developed one-of-a-kind synthesis tools, created outstanding effects entirely unprecedented and suited to live performance. On stage he manipu- lates music data sources as a DJ would vinyls and in- vents new interactions, pushing back the boundaries of sound processing..
> Gre´gory BOUDRAS (Electronic Drum, Vocals)
With his devastating groove, this essential drummer plays live those unlikely dynamic beats which are commonly reserved to the most expert electronic compositions. He can, with effortless ease, play mind- blowing abstract Hip-Hop as well as Electro tailored for the dance floor. Not forgetting, of course, everything that machines can’t do !
