Lowland Brothers

rock / soul


The French group consolidates its soul, rock and Americana roots in a liberating and timeless second album.

In 2021, Lowland Brothers, the first self-titled album from the group led by Nico Duportal (vocals, guitars, lyrics), Hugo Deviers (percussion, guitar, lyrics) and Max Genouel (bass, keyboards) built a unique transatlantic bridge between soul, rock and the woody sounds of Americana. “We have affinities with the African-American musical landscape, but our desire is to transport this baggage and take it elsewhere,” specifies the group from the West and North of France.

João Selva

Brazil / caribbean


JOAO SELVA returns with a second album, a true hymn to creoleness and tropicalism, embued with avors of funk, jazz and disco. An exhuberant travelogue diary featuring some shiny souls such as the sprightly Flavia Coelho and the multi- instrumentalist producer Patchworks (Voilaaa, The Dynamics, David Walters, Mr President, Taggy Matcher). Cast off on a thrilling musical cruise with this Brazilian nomadic spirit, sailing freely on the mythical Black Atlantic.

The Brooks

funk / soul


Sometimes, you have to explore the coldest lands to discover the most ardent sounds! Thanks to their clever blend of soul and funk, The Brooks blur geographic markers…Named “best kept secret of Canadian funk” by the Quebecois newspaper La Presse, The Brooks are a band of accomplished musicians, well-known in the soul/funk scene across the Atlantic.


créole / electro / jazz / soul


Nomadic and pioneer, Dowdelin explores a path where Creole jazz, electronic dancefloor and West Indian percussion come together to create a unique Future Kréol feeling.

The Bongo Hop

afro / carribeen / latin


A collection of sounds brought back from Colombia, the caribean and Africa, rich with encounters and moments of shared passion, seductive, the music of The Bongo Hop is clearly afro caribean, yet it goes beyond the clichés and the day’s trends.


afro / groove / tropical


Ireke? Sugar cane in Yoruba. Like her, the duo loves tropical climates and intoxicating rhythms, quick to liberate the bodies gathered on a dancefloor. Afrobeat urgency, funk suppleness, dub alchemy, highlife jubilation: with Tropikadelic, Ireke summons the heritage of the masters and the audacity of machines to give life to new sonic territories. At the crossroads. For the love of groove.
