CHROMATICS

10:00 pm til 11:00 pm

ITALIANS DO IT BETTER . US . LIVE

An outcome of the Italians Do It Better, a breeding ground of champions much acclaimed by both the press and the public, the Chromatics shine well beyond the ’In’ aura that surrounds them. Since the impeccable producer, Johnny Jewel (Glass Candy), joined them, this group previously in the Punk movement, has become a synthetic Pop pure bred. Arrangement sublimely reduced to the bare minimum, the angelic voice of the delicious Ruth Radalet, a daring and successful version of « Running up that hill » by Kate Bush… The Chromatics can dare to try anything which includes seducing as one, all Rock, Electro and Pop amateurs.

FLYING LOTUS

11:15 pm till 00:15 am

WARP RECORDS . US . LIVE/DJ SET

We had noticed Flying Lotus within the Plug Research label, a reference for Californian producers of abstract smoky Hip Hop. The last album released by Warp revealed him to the European public. As he is Alice Coltrane’s nephew, Flying Lotus definitely knows where his cosmic and spiritual inspiration comes from. Yet it is closer to Jay Dilla that one can find the origins of his music. As did the late producer, he enjoys knowingly moulding his displaced rhythms onto a background of sounds with psychedelic tones. (Photo : DR / Text : Olivier Kerdudo / Translation : Caroline Newman)

CLARK

00:30 am till 01:30 am

WARP RECORDS . UK . LIVE

Previously known under the name - Chris Clark - it is not only the deletion of his first name that has gained him notoriety : his regular album releases with Warp and his wild stage shows have also endowed Clark with the status of a natural descendant of the Squarepusher and Luke Vibert generation. Yet he shouldn’t be placed in the electronica category, as he pulls you more easily onto the dance floor rather than flat out on the sofa… (Photo : DR / Text : Olivier Kerdudo / Translation : Caroline Newman)
