Biography

VITALIC: With his debut four-song ‘Poney EP’, Vitalic tore through dancefloors across the world like the Wagner of rave. Four years later, Vitalic is back with his debut album, "OK Cowboy", that blends innovation with emotion, power with poise.

MISSTRESS BARBARA: The queen of "Drummy Funky Pumpin' Techno" (that's how she used to define her style) is playing a groovy techy, minimal and electro funk filled sound, constantly pushing her own limits to evolve with the music she hears and appreciates.

BIRDY NAM NAM: This group of four turntables experts rap obscure jazz records, select the right loop, the good breakbeat, which they percfectly assemble to give birth to a music with no identifiable format.

DJ CAM: Turntables wizard DJ Cam has been French hip-hop’s reference point for the last 10 years, as well as one of the international representatives for abstract hip-hop and trip-hop.

NOJAZZ: In the top echelon of music and bands now in France, there's Paris' own ‘noJazz’. If there is a concept behind noJazz, it is very simple: to mix the original celebratory spirit in jazz with hypnotic rhythms and contemporary sounds. Their explosive live show has already traveled worldwide, dazzling audiences and convincing people of the power of their music.

NANO: Arnaud Methivier is one of the most gifted French accordionists. He has played and toured with famous artists such as Kent, Boy George and Suzanne Vega. He now composes his own songs with the help of an accordion and a cajon. On stage, he proposes an uninterrupted and fully impovised trip, leaving the audience breathless as the last note from his accordion slowly fades away in the air.
