Claire Pommet (aka Pomme) is a singer-songwriter who splits her time between Paris and Montreal. Her first album, À peu près, released in October 2017, received critical acclaim and was the follow-up to EP En cavale (2016). During the last three years, an extended tour involving more than 300 concerts allowed the public to meet the musician and artist, in all her honest truth. Her success has increased, as evidenced by a sold-out Trianon (Paris) on 16th January 2019. Her new album, Les failles, released on 1st November 2019. The reissue, Les Failles Cachées, released on 14th February 2020.

THYLACINE is the scientific name of the Tasmanian wolf, a species that became extinct 86 years ago. A precious word that French musician William Rezé has chosen to deploy to embody his progressive and vaporous electronica. Each individual track is imbued with a singular flavour and reveals the breadth of the artist’s influences: from repetitive music pioneers – such as Steve Reich or Philip Glass – to John Zorn’s jazz experimentations and Massive Attack’s trip-hop. THYLACINE’s music combines the cadenced and melancholic techno of Paul Kalkbrenner with the aerial melodies of Moderat or Four Tet.

Kid Francescoli have been filling the biggest clubs in France for years with their mix of folk and electronic pop, tinged with r’n’b. Originally from Marseille, Mathieu Hocine started Kid Francescoli as a solo venture in 2002, with a name referencing former Uruguayan football star Enzo Francescoli. New York-born singer Julia Minkin came on board in 2013, and Kid Francescoli found what it had been missing in Julia – the contrast between her light, airy voice and his deeper tones feeds the tension at the heart of their songs. On his new album Lovers, Mathieu Hocine collaborates with a variety of singers and returns to a more dream pop sound.
Born in Lille, Myd has been making music for over ten years, firstly as a founding member of the beloved collective Club Cheval, where he helped produce and remix for artists including Kanye West, Dua Lipa, Theophilus London, Brodinski and more.
But here, Myd has crafted an album completely alone – unabashedly showcasing his eccentric flair. ‘Born A Loser’ is his coming-of-age record and a soundtrack to life’s strange delights: a drunken round of jazzercise, a lazy float in the kiddie pool, your weird uncle gyrating under disco lights.
