THE ARTISTS

LEF
LEF is a hip-hop group funded in 2015, including 3 rappers and 3 beatmakers. Their diversity provides the group with a striking energy which is entirely experienced during their live performances.

JOE LEWANDOWSKI
For years, Joe Lewandowski had an adulterous relationship with techno through his band: the Iron Years. But in 2015, a stay in New York brought him back to his own true love: house music. This love gave birth to two illegitimate children: Bkp evenings that he co-funded; an EP titled “Premiers Frissons” published with Italian label Hopera Records. Looking for his true love, he came back to Paris to become one of the residents of the Garage club, Soirée la Claque and Madman Regent.

CORINE
In 2007, it’s time for a feminine revelation. In 2018, it’s time for a Corine revelation. #MeeToo is replied with #Leeloo, the name of the heroine of one of her songs: "Marche Nocturne". Corine, disco-glam/disco-charm wonderful diva with bleached hair and glittered eyelids fights for women’s empowerment, just like Simone de Beauvoir and Michèle Obama. It’s true that this extroverted hedonist, able to talk with a Quebec accent for an entire night, approaches the part of ourselves dreaming about using a lot of oil cream in summer and wearing a green biking with lined boots in winter. “Actually, it’s important to develop joy, relax, playing with sensuality”, says the divine creature while applying an umpteenth (unnecessary) layer of iridescent gloss on her lips...
MACADAM CROCODILE
Macadam crocodile originated when Xavier Polycarpe (Gush) and Vincent Brülin (Rülin, fortune) joined to mix their idea of DJing with organic and synthetic live instruments. Their uninterrupted live-set spice up dance floors with their trance and creative spontaneity. Non-stop tracks mix improvisation with captivating loops through disco, funk, electro, show, afro sounds. They play to let you dance. They have decided to play together to enjoy. Looking at them, we can say that they have met their objective: they make jokes, seriousness is almost never there, anger and madness shown during their live show is experienced by the entire public.

CERRONE
How do you make your way from the Parisian suburb to Studio 54? Ask Cerrone. The story could have been very different if Marc’s mother had not decided to buy a drumkit to channel her son's energy in positive directions. When he sat behind his drums, the young fan of Santana, Chicago and Blood Sweat & Tears turned into a gifted drummer who started dreaming of a life in music.
Cerrone was only 17 when he started his first band: Kongas, a funky Afrobeat and Afro-Latin music combo. In summer ‘72, while playing drums in St Tropez, the young musician was spotted but music mogul Eddie Barclay who decided to sign him and his band. In 1976, Cerrone started dreaming of a record mixing prog work soul and funk, orchestral composition and synthesized sounds. To fulfil his musical fantasies, Cerrone chose Trident studios in London (attended by Yes and Genesis). His 16 minutes long instrumental piece on the A-side, Love in C Minor is an unidentified musical object way too confusing for French labels. Eddie Barclay told Cerrone: "This will never be played on the radio!" Cerrone didn’t care. He published 5,000 copies of his new recording. The album received a boost from destiny: an order for the Parisian record shop Champs Disques was sent to New York by mistake. New York DJs loved the sound of the French producer. And so did Neil Bogart, boss of Casablanca Records, who published a first remake of his pieces for nightclubs. Cerrone saw this as a sign and decided he should try his luck in America.
Ahmet Ertegün, the owner of Atlantic Records offered a 7 years record deal to the French musician for 3 albums. La machine Cerrone est lancée. The French musician became a huge star providing hits and won 5 Grammy Awards. By 77, disco music was upsetting the dance floors of the entire world. The small Parisian urchin decided to move to New York where he became the darling of the Studio 54 club scene.
In 1986, saddened by a divorce and a cocaine addiction, Cerrone is depressed in Los Angeles. Jack Lang, the almighty French Minister of Culture, asked him to organize a rock opera at Le Trocadéro. The composer accepted and asked members of YES and Earth Wind & Fire to join him. Following this amazing laser light show, the same Minister asked him to deliver another performance for the bicentenary of the French Revolution at La Concorde.
Cerrone influenced and opened the path to the French Touch movement. Daft Punk, The Avalanches or Beastie Boys have stolen once at least an idea from the producer. As DJs like Dimitri From Paris or Bob Sinclar (who sold 1 million copies of his Cerrone by Bob Sinclair album) did too. Now a DJ himself, Cerrone finds his way to studios once again.
The musician worked over three years between Paris, London and Los Angeles to deliver a new record. Red Lips is an amazing unexpected album where we can hear new talents (Kiesza, Yasmin or Brendan Reilly, one of Disclosure’s singer), world-renowned musicians (Aloe Black, Alex Taylor from Hot Chips) and legends like Tony Allen, Nile Rodgers perform for him. All gathered to decode the secret of Cerrone’s Midas touch.

MEZIGUE
Mézigue, co-founder of Parisian label D.KO Records, is a real technician and a remarkable producer. His two EPs (Mangez Moi, Kestuf Daronne?) published with D.KO Records in 2016 propelled him to the forefront in a few months. His music has conquered the public appreciating his unique universe and pieces of a rare intensity, such as “Du Son Pour Les Gars Sûrs”, viewed several thousands of times. Mézigue is an artist with a crazy energy, able to set on fire any dance floors. He came back in 2017 with his first LP published with D.KO Records.

KID FRANCESCOLI
Kid Francescoli is a new musical artist from Marseille playing electro-folk and Indian instrumental music. With his folk guitar, a fabulous korg and a sampler, he acts as an entire group and fascinates his public. It’s not surprising that he plays together with Oh Tiger Mountain ! CQFD/Les Inrockuptibles.

ARNAUD REBOTINI
Initiated by his father to funk and disco sounds, he decided to fund a death metal/noise-grunge group. Alias Zend Avesta, he published “Organique” in 2000, an experimental pop remarkable album. Passionate for classic music, he also worked for the GRM institution, focused on contemporary music created by innovative experienced artists: Pierre Henry and Pierre Schaeffer. Artists like Oliver Huntemann, Zen Kei, The Rapture, Depeche Mode, Tiefschwarz... asked him for remakes. He published albums with Kling Klong, Goodlife and Dimmer. Rebotini is also the producer and singer of Black Strobe: he published with this group a first clearly electro rock album in 2007. Now, he works alone again with his analog devices, without using computers, considering this tool an obstacle to musicians’ freedom. The artist must be one with his instrument: this is what he thinks about electronic composers today.
