Saint Paul, Ethyène, Martin Miguel
Better Listen Records heads back up north to Rose Gold and they are bringing a contingent of French Allstars with them. To celebrate the Naturist Behavior EP we have Lyon beatsmith Saint Paul made an impressive full debut in 2017 with his Introspection EP on Moonrise Hill Material (which he co-runs with his boys Folamour, Ethyène and Kaffe Crème). After tasty contributions to V/As on the likes of Apparel Wax and FHUO, the Frenchman is back with another solo record on DC's Better Listen Records.
The Naturist Behavior EP is a tastefully balanced, warm-weather oriented four tracker. The title track and the A2, "A Hawaiian Trip", explore playful and jazzy territories. Meanwhile, the flip hosts moodier ventures via the bittersweet boogie of "Tell Me" and the ice cold late night jam, "Feels Good"
Also in town, we have Ethyène, a producer, DJ and label manager from Lyon in France delivering a House Music finding its roots in the sounds of Detroit, Chicago and Manchester. The young producer's career took on a new lease of life with the co-founding of the record label Moonrise Hill Material in 2015 alongside Folamour, Kaffe Crème & St Paul and a bunch of new releases on some cool imprints such as Roots For Bloom, Kolour LTD, Better Listen and more .. At the end of 2017, after having his Kolour LTD EP charted in the top 10 best deep house releases of the year by Juno, Ethyène decided to see further for 2018 and create a new record label in order to release more personal stuff rooted in his French house & hip-hop influences.
Then, of course, we have Better Listen Records front man, the one and only Martin Miguel who will be laying down the groundwork for whats sure to be a great evening.
