Native of Outaouais, D-TRACK holds a twelve-year work curriculum in hip-hop. Over his career, he has been rewarded with the Télé-Québec award at the Festival de l’Outaouais emergent; has been ranked among the 5 best slammers in Quebec for three consecutive years, and has been participating in the Francouvertes (an annual Canadian music festival based in Montreal) while also being among the performing artist at the Festival en chanson de Petite-Vallée in 2013. Agile with words, D-TRACK is also known for the depth of his lyrics. Between slam and rap, armed with words and rhythms, D-TRACK guards his art with strong convictions. Identity, perseverance and tolerance are the central themes of his message, which is as much a heartfelt plea as a call to the rest of the world for an act of reason.
This folk-rock duo is a perfect mix of harmonized voices and guitars, a pop-rock filled with exigence, poetic, heartfelt lyrics and exquisite melodies written and composed hand in hand by David and Michaëla, in their quiet studio on the hillside. They first met in Paris 16 years ago. Short after recording their first album "Les accords tacites" in 2011, the pair chooses to leave Paris behind and take an independent path towards the "Far Est". Their last album "L’été" was released in January 2018 and mark a significant turning point for Fergessen.
LE ROI ANGUS band was formed in 2014 in an underground club in Geneva. During its first year, the newly-formed band locked themselves in a studio to record their first album, "Iles Essentiel". It was released in the autumn of 2015 on Cheptel Records. LE ROI ANGUS has since toured heavily in Switzerland and released their record in France. LE ROI ANGUS is inspired by a mysterious mix from Birgitte Fontaine to Melody Nelson, Jacco Gardner and Morrissey.
Combining influences of the pioneering work of some leading names (Air, Apparat) and the latest findings of others (Tame Impala, Son Lux), the music of RIVE is a modern pop experience with French lyrics flowing peacefully through lush synths sounds, mineral voices and gentle nostalgia. « Dreamlike and poetic », « Luxuriant and enchanted pop», « Sensitive electro-pop » « An exciting voyage with multiple influences »… are the adjectives used to portray the project of Brussels based duet Juliette (guitar, piano, vocals) and Kevin (drums, machines). From the beginning, RIVE has often been referred to as « Revelation 2017 » by the press. RIVE was awarded several prizes, by juries of professionals, in various competitions in Belgium.
Their first EP “Vermillon”, released March 2017, allowed the band to play several prestigious festivals in Belgium, Switzerland and Quebec. Endowed with a strong visual universe, RIVE released two outstanding videos "Vogue" and "Justice" which were highly remarked, selected and rewarded in various film festivals.
