Chinese Man :
The Marseille trio has been evolving for almost 15 years in the sound exploration, always freeing themselves a little more from styles and trends. Independently, within their label, the group invites you to let go, to seize the present moment, a path towards awakening that belongs to each to follow, like their album «Shikantaza» published in 2017. At the end of 2018, after 160 dates in 18 months, the group released «Shikantaza Remix» and began an international tour.
Ammar 808 :
After the Ammar 808 & The Maghreb United tour of summer 2018, Ammar 808 tightens its style for its autumn and winter 2018 tour around the Targ, a traditional, almost forgotten music from Northwestern Tunisia. The artist extends the spirit of Bargou 08 in an electro vein with futuristic accents. Sia Rosenberg (vjay) surrounds Ammar 808, and draws us into a powerful visual universe that transports the audience. Groove lovers be ready!
Mofak & The Mofeezy Band :
Born in Marseille, Mofak grew up lulled by the sounds of world music, but especially by the ones of the American west coast, which will influence his interest in the hip hop funk culture of the 80s, as well as its ramifications: G-funk. He is accompanied by David (Dub Akom) on drums, Sébastien on bass and Labo Klandestino on guitar and they form the Mofeezy Band. Its sunny, funk and groovy musicality isn’t finished surprising you, so close your eyes and let yourself be rocked by the notes!
