As a partner of the musical program of Festival Internationnal du Film d’Aubagne, the Chinese Man Records label offers an ever so eclectic program for the 2018 edition, from the Rennes beatbox champion SARO to the Hip Hop/Bass Music of Youthstar & Senbeï, including the latino and electronic rythms of the duet Baja Frequencia.
Here is the line-up :
Winner of the Grand Beatbox Battle 2017, SARO from Rennes is considered the newest Beatbox sensation. His music breaks the codes of the discipline and takes it to a whole new dimension by creating tunes where trap, bass and electro pop music overlap. A young genius to discover live.
YOUTHSTAR & SENBEÏ
Originating from London, Youthstar discovers the Drum & Bass scene very quickly. Entertainer at heart, he is nominated four years in a row to the Drum & Bass Arena Awards of London, in “Best newcomer MC” and “Best MC”. He works alongside the best Drum & Bass and Bass Music artists in the world, namely Andy C, Netsky, Nero, Borgore, Metrik, Shimon, to name a few. Aside from this, he begins collaborating with Chinese Man in late 2010. An occasional guest at first, his importance in the band grows and to this day he is the band’s official MC.
Electronic music producer, Turntablist and accomplished MPC player, cinephile with a passion for Japanese culture and talented composer, the hyperproductive Senbeï has a hand in every trade. When he surrounds himself with his producer friends it is to play old school gangsters in Smokey Joe & The Kid (Hip- Hop/Swing - Banzaï Lab) or throw giant mosh pits with Tha New Team and Tha Trickaz (Dubstep/Audiporn - Play Me Records, Ninja Tune).
BAJA FREQUENCIA live
Baja Frequencia will introduce Catzilla for the first time in-house. The blazing duet masterfully handles its machinery, combining Nueva Cumbia, Trap, Moombatho and other tropical sounds. It’s as a trio that they’ll set the crowd dancing and the dancefloor on fire.
Since their first sets over the course of the year 2013 when Marseille was the European Capital of Culture, these two DJs are close to the Massila Hi-Fi and Chinese Man Records collectives. They skimmed the region’s concert halls, standing out with a scenic display that owed as much to Duchamp as it did the electronic music maestros. From edits or bootlegs to remixes, the duet loved their taste of studio recording. Catzilla, their first 7-tracks was inspired by the music of their debuts and reveals the sunny and bouncy personality of this southern duet.
