FLUPKE - JE NE PAS POSSIBLE
New single, music video and 3-level platformer game, all made by Strasbourg-based electronic artist FLUPKE now available.
For the second chapter of his odyssey, we find again Le Commandant Couche Tôt in the middle of the Amazon River, escaping from drones and wildfires in a hovercraft.
Four tracks and seven remixes now available on digital, vinyl, CD and cassette.
GROOVE DINGUERIES VOL. 1
Groove Dingueries Vol. 1 is one of the first compilations to spread the new sound of Jazz and Groove that emerged since the late 2010’s in France, Belgium and Switzerland, inherited from 70’s French Groove and echoing the new UK jazz scene of the 2010’s. We’re proud to contribute to this movement already carried by labels and collectives (Sdban Records, Menace, Jazztronicz…), cultural venues and festivals (Nancy Jazz Pulsations, VOLTA Brussels, Petite Halle de la Villette…) and most importantly by the bands and musicians featured on this project. Musically, this is an eclectic mix of influences, from traditional jazz to funky pop and club music, reunited on one record.
DON’T TRY EP
Here’s a new EP of jazzy R&B sweetness by 3 talented Parisian musicians: the bassist from LORD$ Jay Adams, film music composer Ben Molinaro and singer/violist Nina Tonji. This sunny 4-tracker is built on funky bass lines, smooth vocals and an irresistible US pop touch influenced by Jacob Collier, DOMi & JD Beck and Thundercat.
DANCE THE DEVIL AWAY
It’s been 3 years since enigmatic composer Miles Newbold aka The Natural Yogurt Band’s last LP release on BMM, Braille, Slate & Stylus. He is now back with Dance The Devil Away, containing 10 tracks of pagan jazz and spooky library music from the hills and trees of Derbyshire, carried by Tom Dempsey’s heavy drum play.
We find again that raw yet distinguished sound with screeching organs, swirling flutes and loud drum breaks that navigate inside the stereo like a ghost haunting this record.
JE NE PAS POSSIBLE
FLUPKE is back with a new single that could have come straight out of an old gaming console. These four minutes of punchy and melodic electro propels us into his crazy universe, with frenetic synth lines and an electro beat faithful to the French Touch style. In addition to the music video that he animated all by himself, the versatile musician from Strasbourg proposes an even more immersive experience in the form of a 3-level video game that he designed and developed.
We’re stoked to welcome Émile Sornin’s solo project Forever Pavot to the BMM roster with this retro-sounding original motion picture soundtrack for the French-Canadian movie Babysitter, directed by Monia Chokri, out now in French theaters.
After his singles Peyo and Souls, French pianist Guillaume Poncelet presents his new EP Haven, consisting of five new compositions with muted ambiances, in which the pianist keeps on exploring the sphere of minimalist neo-classical music with deep and subtle nuances.
It’s time for French producer Zerolex and his trio to bring their stone to the cosmic edifice of Sun Ra tributes with Hold Steady, a collaborative project spanning across countries with Cincinnati-based rapper Napoleon Maddox, drummer Adrien Legay from Nancy and Brussels-based producer Marc Melià who delivers a mellow ambient version of the track.
The fourth single by Parisian artist Léon Evangelion is an ambient-pop song with oniric and organic landscapes, ending with a brief and smooth chorus, somewhere between Lana del Rey and Hiroshi Yoshimura.
One of BMM’s jazziest acts is back with a full-length EP. Seven new original compositions adds up to the quartet’s discography, triggered by a meditative reflection on people and events that guide us, inspire us, but who can also paralyze us completely. The Storm Watchers translate this feeling with raw, hypnotizing, slightly electronic jazz reminiscent of New York clubs, with improvised sequences stretching to more ambient planes, especially with the remixes by Colorado-based vaporwave producer ライフMIDI.
UNE HISTOIRE D’AMOUR BRÉSILIENNE
For the second chapter of his odyssey, Le Commandant is riding a hovercraft on the Amazonas river chased by butterdrones and wildfires. This dystopian vision has been widely inspired by the troubles of years 2020 and 2021 and illustrates a form of anxiety toward the future. Its soundtrack is purposely the antithesis and is an assumed tribute to a very optimistic space disco and Brazilian funk. A ”good vibe pill” to give hope for a new beginning.
Red Cheeks is the third single from Parisian singer, plastic artist, graphic designer, tattoo artist & soccer player Léon Evangelion, a soothing voice echoing over a smooth downtempo piece.
KK K KK (DJ EARL REMIX)
We’re proud to present this international connection between French multi-instrumentalist FLUPKE from Strasbourg, and one of the lead producers of the Chicago Footwork scene: DJ Earl. The result is an energic, MPC-based reinterpretation of the originally chill track “Kk k kK” sped up to the iconic 160BPM range. Earl’s syncopated kicks are blasting over a shivering synth line while FLUPKE’s spaced out sounds resonate in between. The tension grows so high sequence after sequence that it’s hard to keep your feet still.
LE CASCADEUR FLEURISTE, PT. 1
In this new track, the band explores a more cinematic and psychedelic sound reminiscent of 70’s progressive rock, inspired by Omega, Vangelis and Nils Frahm. The noisy and loud intro gives place to the nostalgic melody of the piano and Quentin Thomas’ flute, slowly fading away and disappearing like a bomb that explodes and leaves a cloud of smoke.
57 LASHES OF THE MALLET / MYSTERIOUS PLANET
The mysterious British act from Nottingham is back with a new 2-tracker, following up his previous 7-inch releases on BMM: Spectral Flux and 13 Moons of Neptune. We find again this unique style of esoteric library jazz over these cosmic drum breaks, this time with an electronic twist.
