Completing the recent LP reissue of Black Voices by Tony Allen, Comet presents a 2 tracks remix EP by Folamour and NIT. The two rising French producers provide great new versions of “Get Together” and “The Same Blood”.FOLAMOUR: Behind this surprising name is hidden one of the main House producer and DJ from France. Label manager of the amazing record labels Moonrise Hill Material and FHUO Records, the artist using lots of different aliases has already burnt most of the best dancefloors in Europe and beyond. 2017 has been an important year in his career with releases on Church and Glitterbox labels, and a debut album on Moonrise Hill Material and Classic Music Company, after a whole series of successful records on quality labels such as All City Records, Fauxpas Musik and Sleazy Beats Recordings. Working on his second album after two EPs upcoming soon, it makes no doubt that it's only the beginning for Folamour.NIT: NIT is the studio project of the French musician Corentin Kerdraon. After several years working at radios in Paris he released a first EP called Dessous de Plage in May 2017, displaying condensed grooves with multiple references, from Jean-Claude Vannier to Dam Funk... Alternating Pop projects and more experimental compositions he's present on different musical scenes as keyboard player and producer. He has just recorded an EP for the American singer COLA BOY released in spring 2018 on the French label Record Makers.
The French-Afropean duo is back with a new funky masterpiece album! DjeuhDjoah & Lieutenant Nicholson are French composers and afro-soul singers. The duo are creating a new vibe with French sounds and mixing it with Jazz, Afrobeat, Electronic and Soul.T’es qui ? was their first album released in 2015 and re-released a year later under the name Remets t'es qui? It was result of an intense collaboration that has lasted many years, on stage and in the studio. They call their music “Afropean songs”, a collection of Jazzy-Pop melodies, Afro-Soul and Funk arrangements.This new album has 15 songs, and features a tribute to the famous poet Aimé Césaire on the title. The Antilles are also honored with creole lyrics, and if you listen carefully – you’ll hear them distilled within the album. La Montagne Pelée's eruption in 1902 is evoked under the prism of “August Cyparis”, one of the three survivors. The rhythms are tight and focused, with some Antilles, but also Detroit elements thrown in, accompanied with a strong horns section, vibraphone and analog drums. There are lots of echoes from the era of Jazz funk and the lyrical French Mode, mixed with some slightly warmer currents that show their wider love of modern funk and eclectic tastes.It is a unique sound, an original recipe, using French wordplay with a universal message. Last summer, they presented the now critically acclaimed first single “El Nino”, an Afro-Funk gem about climate change, and “Fontaine”, an Afro hit with a great combination of analog take and electronic dance floor ingredients. With massive support from national radios and prestigious international DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Aimez ces airs could be one of the Top funky albums of 2019!Limited press on a deluxe double vinyl cover designed by the artist Felix, mastered by Dj Vas
