MOHA LA SQUALE
Attention Phenomenon! For four months now, every Sunday, a name makes more and more noise among rap listeners. Moha La Squale publishes every weekend on his Facebook page a clip of a new song. And every week, the craze is a little bigger (over 80 million views) Moha breaks the screen with his inhabited expressions and extraordinary charisma. A rap of total sincerity, where he reveals his life in a raw way, without makeup and without artifice. Moha comes from the street and recalls the street and its dangers, the street he knows, the street he has surveyed since his earliest childhood.
Maz has been around for the better of a year now, creating quite a sensation at the 2017 Screaming Fields Festival where he won a great number of distinctions, after stunning the audience and convincing the jury. His debut album "Immortalisation" was released to great praise at a sold-out Rockhal Floor on March 2018.
It is a soaking with a rich variety of styles from old school boom bap to the newest trap wave and all their subcategories, the different sounds and moods referring to the many music influences of the young artist, who is inspired by artists such as Wisdom, Token, Eminem or Ed Scissor. Not shy about his endeavours, Maz is reaching for the stars with his debut album or as he puts it "loving the idea of being able to reach immortality through art".
MNNQNS from Rouen, France, were brought together by their shared tastes in post-punk and pubs. Taking influence from heavyweights like The Fall, Television and Sonic Youth, MNNQNS are a compelling force of tightly woven guitars, enveloping feedback and singer Adrian D’Epinay’s deadpan, at times sermonic vocals.
Although MNNQNS like to remind their listeners that the basis to all of their creation is pop, it’s sometimes hard to believe when they breakout into drones and frenetic, repetitive guitar lines. The band says they like to take their ideas to the extreme. When they’re pop, they’re really pop. When they’re punk, they’re really punk. But these shifts happen within the space of a mood swing, the confines of one song: a mix of elements, condensed, but still distinct. MNNQNS waste no time in forming a connection with the listener, both sonically and emotionally.
Bewitching arrangements, warm low-pitched vocal samples, and rousing percussions are Napoleon Gold’s favorite tools when producing his electronic tracks. He has played over one hundred performances around the world, opening for acts such as London Grammar, Glass Animals, SOHN, Son Lux, and many more.
Joined on stage by a drummer, Napoleon Gold gains in intensity and character when experienced live: the mix between electronic sounds, keyboards, percussions, and subtle improvisations make each show a unique experience. He finished producing and recording his first Electro and Hip-Hop influenced EP, projected to release later this year.
