Biography

Put five 25 years old guys who’ve known each other since they were 6 years old, give them a trumpet, a saxophone, sequencers, percussions, turntables, a drum, a bass and a couple of keyboards, and you get Misteur Valaire (MV). How to describe MV’s style? Well it’s neither electro or hip-hop nor is it jazz or rock. In fact, it's a wild mix of all that, with brass, samplings and beats to make you dance all night! The five spread a contagious humorous energy everywhere they play and always find a way to turn a simple concert into a delirious playful and festive adventure!

With their third album Golden Bombay, launched on May 18th 2010, MV solidifies their creative talents, making their music more accessible with an international scope. More pop than their last album Friterday Night, Golden Bombay keeps the extravaganza, the color and flavor of MV, adding an impressive team of guest singers (James Di Salvio and Liquid of Bran Van 3000, Senja Sargeant of Ladies of the Canyon, Fanny Bloom and Béni bbq).

The album fiercely hit the sale charts from the first week of its release. Ave Mucho, the first single on commercial radio stations, has soared onto the BDS English chart after only two weeks and has been playing a lot on French and German radios. For Golden Bombay, Misteur Valaire won the « Electronic Album of the Year Award » at Gala de l'ADISQ 2011, the « Show of the Year Award » at GAMIQ Award Ceremony and was nominated for the « Best New Group of the Year » at the Juno Award Ceremony and for the « Album of the Year Award » at Polaris Prize.

In May 2011, Misteur Valaire launched Golden Bombay in French and German stores for its first european tour (21 shows in France, Belgium & Germany). The band has also been selected by the International Jazz Festival of Montreal to be one of the three main outdoor events last June. More than 100,000 persons were there to see their explosive show.

Ave Mucho

Written By: James Di Salvio & Steve 'Liquid' Hawley

ya know, ya see,
supposed we was to raise the bar
take the parts and make them raw

take the parts and make them whole
slip the mother fucker back to burning soul, ya see
make'n love on the telephone
with the whole game watching
turn around and say
"what these crazy fools do when I turned my last back
they was looking over but the crews still down"
I was thinking we could work it out
we could bump this shit all over town
we could right that hit girl
flip that script girl
get that paper people bound
ya know
we the ones that keep on reach'n
triple check'n
downtown beek'n
hold it now
let'n old school jeans in
put the love in fantasy'n

HOOK
When the beat drops
and the peeps lock
that's when we go
owwwwwwww

Candy floss, we brought
this exabition ride
reason for the party
to have a drink outside
take a wif off the riff, and
get on that ride
we got these pretty young things to come and lotion the slide
for time that flies
hips that glide
ice that's thin and
the ass that's wide
late night, body tight... bonafied vibration
feeling right to the morning light
out of sight without debation
music got ya moving in your club position
wind on my face
sun on my back... I like a record button on a fresh layed track
cool under pressure
check the playback
doesn't matter where I'm from
it's where I'm at
with my cat in this hat
with a dug out of bats
we got the sun shining down singing tit for tat
and that's that
that's that!!!!

HOOK

When the beat drops
and the peeps lock
that's when we go
owwwwwwww

November Number 3

Written By: Fanny Bloom

Look what you did to me
I no longer can bleed
What you did to me
Was pretencious and mean
And to do what you did
God! I must be naive boy

It's a little unfair
'Cause I know we both kids
Might have kicked at your cool
And made you a fool
Did exactly the same
When you published my name, boy

And it's not a lie
It's not a big suprise
I don't want you to cry
For me, boy
And it's not a lie
It's not a big suprise
I don't want you to cry
For me, boy

Look at your hungry hand
They're all over the place
Taking all that is free
When you'll crash, you will see
You'll have to change your way
This is no way to live, boy

Look what you did to me
Purple stains on my heart
You're a bad fantasy
But killing you is hard
Enough with dog eyed look
Pack your shit, you are done, boy

And it's not a lie
It's not a big suprise
I don't want you to cry
For me, boy
And it's not a lie
It's not a big suprise
I don't want you to cry
For me, boy
