"South America's answer to Massive attack." - The Guardian

Pedro Canale alias Chancha Via Circuito processes Brazil rhythms, Paraguayan harps, Andean mystic, folklore from the Argentinian Pampa and - of course - cumbia. This seductive formula became a key reference for many artists of the Latin American electronic music scene.

With the album “Rio Arriba” Chancha put South American folklore on the dancefloors around the world. His great remix of José Larralde’s "Quimey Neuquén" was chosen for the popular TV series “Breaking Bad”.

Pedro Canale is regarded as a cult artist for the most avant-garde electronic music circles. This characteristic has led him to be part of the program of bold events such as Mutek Montreal. He also played in festivals like Roskilde (Denmark), Sonar (Spain), Calvi on the Rocks (France) and Vive Latino (México). Besides, he has gotten the attention and applause of prestigious media like Pitchfork, NPR, BBC, KEXP, Radio3, Earmilk, MTV Iggy, Vice, and The Fader.

The last record “Amansara” was released by belgian record label Crammed Disc in Europe and Asia, and by Wonderwheel Recordings in U.S.A. and Oceania. A new album is planned for 2018!

Das 2018 gegründete Live-Trio webt einen fesselnden Klangteppich aus verschiedenen Welten: Von den Weiten des Weltraums über fernöstliche Wüstenlandschaften und tropische Regenwälder bis zu den nordischen Fjorden der Wikinger.
Zu dieser Mixtur kommt eine groovige Portion psychedelischer Funk & Rock'n'Roll auf einem elektronischen Beatgerüst, was kein Tanzbein ungeschwungen lässt.

Their most recent album is entitled ‘The Influencing Machine’, it is a sonic reaction to Technology, the human mind and the post-truth age, being hailed by DownBeat Magazine as “Glorious in it’s arrestingly planned order of manic development” ****1/2. After the success of ‘The Influencing Machine’ the trio went back into the studio and released their most recent album ‘Modern Times’ on 19th of April 2019.

Cats & Breakkis are four young Berliners with jazz in their hearts and techno in their genes. With a classical band line-up – e-guitar, bass, drums, keys – they rock an instrumental dj-live-set on stages, floors and festivals anytime. Always danceable to, with courage to elegiac melodies, opulent breaks and rich surfaces, they convince above all by a precise build-up of tension and tonal dimension in their arrangements.

After their debut album "Organic Electro", co-produced with David August, had been released in 2015, they were nominated for the “Bremer Jazzpreis 2016” in the category “Jazz & Electronics”, followed by multiple performances at festivals and clubs, e.g. at the Kantine am Berghain, the Tallinn Music Week and the Fusion Festival. In 2018 they stepped up their game yet again with their release of "Spectral". In ten tracks, which consist of three individual short-sets, they weave artful tonal and metric layers, drill thick disco-boards, deliver perfect build-up and drop dramaturgy – and above all in a relaxed way put on immense pressure. Cats & Breakkies, that is elegant, straightforward live-techno from Berlin.

Global pop with a meaning. Word has got around that Il Civetto concerts are rousing and magical, an ecstatic modern musical experience - in a concert hall, just like on record.
Il Civetto's journey began using guerrilla tactics in the Berlin subway in 2010: Playing in the train and shaking the wagon. Bribing the securities with kebab to play longer. Growing up in Berlin’s club scene with appearances in Kater Holzig, Ritter Butzke or Sisyphos, the band scores an impressive success story: After several tours in Germany with a total of more than 300 concerts, appearances at MS Dockville, the Fusion Festival, Montreux Jazz Festival, the 3000° or at the Anti-G20 Protests in Hamburg, the band now inspires an international audience from Istanbul to Copenhagen.

And now album number 2: F acing the Wall . Written in Morocco, Greece and Andalusia, sung in English, German and French, recorded in Berlin - il Civetto have carried their ecstatic-magical playground from the stage to the studio a second time with great attention to detail. The dreamy lightness of the self-titled debut album has given way to hard reality: Facing the Wall is a deeply touching fragment of our time. The expression of a generation in upheaval, searching. An album between euphoria and melancholy - wallowing, sweating, dancing - with a tingling belly and wide open eyes. Il Civetto have become more serious, somehow more real, and yet have retained their very own, characteristic sound.
Deeply touching, always danceable.

Handmade, tight and bursting with energy. With luscious funk and their charismatic front man James Copley these seven gentlemen unleash huge musical fireworks from the very first moment.

In France you won’t see any festival line up without this band who is filling club shows with over 1000 guests on a regular base. Each of their last four albums entered the jazz charts on #1 and hit the top 10 in pop charts too. Famous for their electrifying live performances, they have been selling out venues and playing at the most prestigious Jazz & Pop festivals around Europe since 2001.

Merged into one unit and with the use of original vintage equipment Electro Deluxe creates a catching cocktail made out of dirty funk & soul which goes straight into ears and legs. You don’t just watch a show of them, you become part of it immediately. Naked, uninhibited and sincere.
