The Bancal Bancal studio is a new project started by three London-based frenchmen Ivan Smagghe, Danton Eeprom and Tim Paris plus british dj/producer Pete Herbert.
From this "Franco English resistance bunker", as Ivan describe, had already originated some cool tracks including 3 remixes from Ivan Smagghe & Tim Paris (aka It's A Fine Line) out on Marketing, Tsuba and Soma, one EP + one remix from Ivan Smagghe & Danton Eeprom (aka "La Horse") due to be released on Fondation and Kill The Dj + one EP with Tim Paris and Pete Herbert (aka "Challenge") out soon on Marketing. Some Danton and Tim material is also in the pipeline.
Bancal Bancal is also a club night featuring Pete Herbert, Danton's twisted live act and an extensive back2back dj performance from Tim and Ivan. The first edition took place in Paris at Rex club and feedback from clubbers and press has been amazing so far.
