METAZON

METAZON

BandLatinFunk

Their Hip Hop Latin Funk is a mixture of urban break beats with a Southern American and Caribbean twist and is a reflection of the streets’ hunger and pain. They raises the standards of the current urban productions by pushing back the limits and by putting Montreal’s rough talent on the front line.

Biography

Montreal, 2006. The word is on the streets, METAZON is Montreal’s best kept secret and is recognized as THE group to watch in the near future by the "Vue sur la relève" festival. Working jointly with the TOHU (Cite des Arts du Cirque) and the NFB, METAZON brings once again the best out of Montreal with the album RASSEMBLEMENT (THE GATHERING) which joins together the great names of the canadian urban music. They give the opportunity to discover the potential of canadian cultural diversity. The commitment, innovation, and the profoundness of their message are worth a strong recognition that carries METAZON as representatives of the youth of St-Michel and St-Leonard as they performed for the Honorable Governor General of Canada, Michaëlle Jean upon her first official visit in Quebec.

Montreal/Toronto, 2004. METAZON comes full-force hitting the bilingual market at the canadian urban music with the release of their first classic, the album “Now or Never - The Black Album”. Being the only group that delivers tracks in English, Spanish, Creole and, French, they are rapidly known as the most innovative entrepreneurs with a style never heard before. As a result, METAZON sold 4000 copies independently by word of mouth and with a street team effort. The sound of their classic single “Que Quieres”, using the exotic rhythms of the charango (a musical instrument from the Andes made in the carapace of an armadillo), is something that had never been done before in the world’s urban music scene. This brought METAZON under the spotlight, earning them several invitations to perform at the Canadian Music Week. The group was chosen among 170 other contestants.
