Blick Bassy get remixed by CLARAGUILAR
CLARAGUILAR, Barcelona-based producer and composer signed on the renowned LAPSUS label, unveils her transformative remix of Blick Bassy’s ‘Bengue,’ and takes us on a transcendental musical experience. In this ethereal and ambient journey, CLARAGUILAR breathes new life into the original, reimagining it with an innovative twist.
CLARAGUILAR’s interpretation of ‘Bengue’ is a captivating fusion of pop-chamber arrangements, delicately produced with brooding synths and subtle vocal manipulations. As the track progresses, it seamlessly transitions into a dynamic soundscape with a hint of drum and bass, adding an exciting edge to the experience. This climactic shift is intensified by glitching, pitch-perfect vocal loops. In the last minute of the remix, the ambiance shifts into breakbeat with a slight drum and bass edge, layered with glitching pitched vocals looping hypnotically

Murcof/Simon Geilfus present Twin Color live @ IRCAM (.Electro-Odyssée)
Under the name Murcof, Fernando Corona has released a series of landmark albums, including Martes, Utopia, and Cosmos.. minimalist, micro-polyphonic, soaring music. Now known as Twin Color, Murcof and visual artist Simon Geilfus fuse video and electronics, futuristic sound design and the nostalgia of pop electronics with analog synthesis.
Inserting video game codes into a contemplative world, Twin Color also offers viewers the chance to explore a virtual world, the same environment generating both music and video. A universe permeated by the ghosts of Caspar David Friedrich and the photographer and painter Beksinski.

Labelle release party @ Le Centquatre-Paris on November 30
An adventurous composer brilliantly navigating the confluence of diverse musical sources, Labelle celebrates the release of his new album, NOIR ANIMA, entirely irrigated by a desire for dance and trance.
At the end of a multi-stage creative process initiated in 2018, NOIR ANIMA was finalized in 2023. A vibrant blend of electro and maloya – the emblematic music of La Réunion – it reflects a feverish quest to liberate the body through music, and vice versa. “To feel the moment, to be, to marvel at being, to melt into the present”, says Labelle.
With this fifth album, released like the previous ones by the excellent InFiné label, the musician – as forward-looking as ever, ten years after emerging – enriches with intense new nuances his fundamentally hybrid language oscillating between the West and the Indian Ocean. Developed in part during residencies at CENTQUATRE-PARIS, the live album accompanying NOIR ANIMA is unveiled here for the first time, in the immediate wake of the album’s release.

Cindy Pooch – New video for ‘Nyanga’ by Marco dos Santos
Nyanga is about resisting the urge to please at all costs, about refusing to be impeccable, about the power of being and freedom.
This manifesto is carried by performers Marie-Ange Ladikpo and Hava Hudry, whose raw, embodied presence delivers this message of authenticity in a setting stripped of artifice.
With this music video, Cindy Pooch shows her idea of femininity and her rejection of society’s superficial standards of beauty. Nyanga means coquetry, caprice and show-off in Cameroonian. “Nyanga” is an incisive track that accompanies the release of her debut album, In Nomine Corpus, unveiled on September 29, 2023.
Labelle – New video ‘L’homme félin’ by KidKreol & Boogie
L’Homme Félin is about a dream that has become a vision. That of a black feline, which emerges like a mirror of the self, and which we decide to approach, embody and cross. Choreographer Didier Boutiana has created and performed a series of movements developing the stages of this encounter, from its appearance in the depths of oneself, to its resurgence in a trance-turned-dance, which at the climax of its incarnation ends in its fading away. Kid Kreol & Boogie have captured and edited these movements with their own iconography to create the video for the track.

New soundtrack : Rone x D’Argent & de Sang, by Xavier Giannoli
“D’Argent & de Sang” is the latest creation from French producer Erwan Castex, known as Rone, famous for acclaimed albums such as “Room with a View” and “Tohu Bohu”, who won a César for his first soundtrack for Frédéric Farrucci’s film “La Nuit Venue” in 2021 and the award for best soundtrack at the Cannes Film Festival for Jacques Audiard’s “Les Olympiades”.
Initially entitled “Tikkoun”, the next CANAL+ original series “D’Argent & De Sang” is produced by Curiosa Films and directed by multi-César winner Xavier Giannoli (with “Lost Ilusions in 2021), with whom the composer worked closely to develop a subtle blend of electronic and classical sounds, a field in which Rone’s reputation is well established. “By mixing classical orchestral textures with modern electronic elements, I wanted to symbolise the heterogeneity of the worlds that intersect in this story”.
The first part of the series, which features among many others Vincent Lindon is broadcasted in France on Canal + from 16 October 2023.

Lucie Antunes Live – Paris/France
Lucie Antunes is coming off the heels of opening the renowned Parisien festival Rock en Seine this August, following the release of her critically acclaimed second album Carnaval. Already lauded in France, Antunes unites the pop world with the avant-garde, with a crossover appeal that traverses genres and borders with ease. Her live shows are an infectious and joyous display of club music with an organic sensibility.
Labelle Live – Réunion Island
Labelle is in the midst of releasing his highly anticipated new album Noir Anima, where he masterfully unites Maloya (traditional Réunionais music) and electronics colored with Indian and African touches, to give birth to a new shape flirting with universality. On stage, Labelle’s live performances invite the public into a deep meditative state, guided by dance, leading you into a trance.
Cindy Pooch reveals her debut album ‘In Nomine’ Corpus
With her debut album “In Nomine Corpus”, Cindy Pooch redefines French pop music, interpolating her angelic vocals with poetic lyrics supported by a minimalist production by Seb Martel, her labelmate on renowned French label InFiné. This album is carried masterfully by a playful and powerful Cindy. Her lyrics address strong themes of feminine actualization using her Cameroonian dialect to convey this inner questioning. The result is a universal album that is folk-pop, with an experimental flare.
Born in France, Cindy grew up in Yaoundé, Cameroon before moving to Lyon to study literature, while following her passion for music as a self-taught artist. A very active singer and composer, she has been writing and exploring for several years a wide range of music: trip hop, soul, maloya, as well as music from Central Africa and Latin America. While until now she has often performed for others, she is about to release her first solo album, more intimate and introspective, with the label Infiné. Her artistic experiments are mainly motivated by the desire to use voice, words and sound sensations as tools to trigger or accompany healing processes.
New remixes: Lucie Antunes gets remixed by DJ Danifox & DK
Lucie Antunes is back with the delightful EP ‘Vous Êtes Parfait.e.s’ → Listen
On the heels of her critically acclaimed second album Carnaval, a series of remixes, and opening the renowned Parisian festival Rock En Seine, French composer, percussionist, and producer Lucie Antunes is back with the delightful EP, “Vous êtes Parfait.e.s.”
On this EP, we center around the Carnaval mid-album track Vous êtes Parfait.e.s (meaning “You are Perfect”, in gender-neutral French) and two new remixes. It’s a track that is near and dear to Lucie, with her explaining, “I…needed to have a song like Vous êtes parfait.e.s…I needed love. I need to be in a very good mood.” The song is a triumphant ode to the non-binary, with Lucie fusing electronic elements with organic sounds resulting in a festive and sensory trance, highlighted by the unrelenting mantra: “You are Perfect”, with Lucie reminding us to love ourselves as we are.
The first remix is at the hands of Lisbon-born producer DJ Danifox. The track’s previously straightforward, bouncy dance beat is flipped under the shuffling batida, or a musical rhythmic discipline created in Lisbon’s Afro-diasporic underground, where Danifox was born. Sparse piano and chopped vocals proclaiming the title of the track adorn the new vision of the track in the hands of the exciting and fresh producer.
Building on the marimba element of Lucie’s original production, Parisien producer D.K. offers a charming cascading remix combining rhythm melodic percussion, reverberant gamelan patterns and rich textures.
