Guardian Music describes his music as: “big gestures, fat sounds and monster grooves”.
Carbon Airways is the amazing union of two young siblings under 20 who’ve been creating, dark, intense, & dance-worthy music for at least three years. They’ve already played Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, Transmusicales de Rennes and have signed to the Polydor / Universal France label.
DJ Falcon is a renowned French producer & DJ known for his work with Thomas Bangalter in the group Together. Falcon also appeared on 2013’s major success Random Access Memories.
Laurent Garnier a pioneering French DJ whose early work in the Acid House movement of Manchester paved the way for what’s been one of the most illustrious careers in electro, garnering him the only French short-list in International DJ’s “Best DJ of all Time.”
Woodkid, before becoming one of the most-acclaimed and cinematic French acts on the international scene, was also a graphic-designer and music video director. This incredible visual, film sensitivity comes through in his music and incredible live performances. Check out his first album The Golden Age out now.
