Addiction. This is the first feeling one gets when one hears Lescop’s words. Obsession. The second.

Lescop has been developing his project in London with a new label (Pop Noire Records) handled by Jehnny Beth and John from Savages, reinventing the French New Wave somewhere in between Etienne Daho, Taxi Girl, Joy Division and some might say The XX or The Cure.   Dramatic, danceable, and full of tension, Lescop is a pure new wave thrill. Even before  his selftitled debut in 2012, Hedi Slimane discovered Lescop and through his fotos  helped him to  become a new French icon, playing in every major event in Europe! Four years later, Lescop strikes again with a brand new album, ECHO. At the same time raw, intimate and full of strong characters which could come out of a Dostojewski drama it feels a bit like a literary tour de force. This album (2016) is highly acclaimed in France and gives birth to a new live show merging Lescop ´s electronic sensibilities with a Jim Morrisonesque rock aesthetic.

 

He sounds like an American rapper, easily aligning English punch-lines, however he is French.

KillASon, alias Marcus Dossavi Gourdot, 22, is on his way to becoming one of the most complete hip-hop artist. Rapper, beatmaker, dancer, this 360 degrees’ artist has found a way to express his talent in the hip-hop ecosystem.After “The Rize”, his inventive 9-tracks first EP released in January 2016, the prodigy will deliver a new fanciful and extravagant EP “STW1” in April 2017. His projects sound like nothing else in the French rap game, mixing the best from hip hop, electro and pop music.

Throughout his childhood, his love for music and dance led him so that he quickly realized Hip – Hop was life. Now member of the prominent crews Wanted Posse and Undercover, KillASon is taking part of many dancing competition in the World but also working on several artistic projects such as a theatre show, a rap album and many other creative schemes.

 

It was back in 2010 that the 4 members of Manceau reveal themselves to the world thanks to a remarkable and highly noticed first EP.

Two years later, the quartet reaches the mark of their first album. Surrounding themselves with Xavier Boyer and Pedro Resende from Tahiti 80, Manceau delivers “Life Trafic Jam” which is released on its own label Monophonics. If the album opens them up to the doors of major French festivals (Transmusicales, Printemps de Bourges, Main Square, Francofolies …), it is all the way to Japan that Manceau’s music travels to. Released over there with JVC, the album encounters a nice success which marks the beginning of a very privileged relationship with the Asian continent.

Tours in China, Taiwan and South Korea, the French Miracle Tour with Yuksek, Juveniles and Clarens (Indonesia, Korea, China, Taiwan, Singapore) … The band accumulates dates in Asia and signs several distribution contracts while working underground to the composition of a second album that is released today.

Produced by Julien Vignon aka Timster and mixed by Stéphane “Alf” Briat (Air, Sébastien Tellier, Phoenix, Cassius …), “I Wanna” is filled with their trademark traveller and adventurous spirit. Always resolutely pop, Manceau’s music knows how to keep the acoustic and organic skeleton of their Britpop icons while adding a modern touch to it. The melodies sometimes deliciously naïve (Cool Day), sometimes luminous (Beautiful Loser), are always obvious. I Wanna is a journey through ten powerful hits that knows how to land and unveil melancholic treasures (Open Your Eyes).
