M.A BEAT! are an indie electronica band, founded in Nancy, France in 2012. The band has released two albums as well as several EPs.
It started as a solo project by Samy Abboud (Ghost In The Tapes) with his debut EP Arbor, and became a trio over the years with Adrien Legay (The Storm Watchers) on the drums and Louis Treffel (NCY Milky Band) on the bass.
With a lot of common yet different influences, M.A BEAT! members create boiling electro-acoustic music where ethereal samples, exotic patchworks & pastiche are meeting in a versatile environment.
If M.A BEAT! was a place, it would be the Liquidrom in Berlin. This sauna where the youth swim to the rhythm of comforting electronica. Their music is often oneiric composed of ethereal details with surrealist samples.
After several EPs and 2 albums, M.A BEAT! did their best to create a dreamlike electronica, sometimes catchy or contemplative, filled with krautrock, jazz and African folk. Unclassifiable, the trio blends samplers and synthesizers with an explosive rhythmic section.
Second studio album from the electronica trio M.A BEAT! (Samy Abboud from Ghost In The Tapes, Louis Treffel from NCY Milky Band and Adrien Legay from The Storm Watchers), in which they meditate around more organic ambient textures crossed with krautrock influences. Features collaborations with Laraaji, T/O, The Galaxy Electric and an exclusive bonus track.
