Clara! Y Maoupa - Luna Nueva
Clara! Y Maoupa
Luna Nueva
2LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Editions Gravats)
21,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Europe’s leading reggaeton experimenters DJ Clara! and Maoupa Mazzocchetti. exert a tripped-out spin on modern Latin dance and vintage Galician folk styles for Low Jack’s boundary-stepping club division of Editions Gravats. Following the duo’s 2018 debut EP and Clara!’s ‘Meiga de Acero’ single in 2019 for Les Disques De La Bretagne, ‘Luna Nueva’ binds the duo’s astrological, spiritual and romantic dancefloor cues in a significant new take on Caribbean futurism. Designed to make you sweat - and maybe check your head - the album pairs Clara!’s effortlessly nimble vocals with lean and spacious co-production by Maoupa Mazzocchetti in a way that faithfully and daringly plays with reggaeton convention, and, by extension, offers a critique of global electronic dance music currents.
King Doudou - Novinha / Tremendo Bumbum
King Doudou
Novinha / Tremendo Bumbum
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Editions Gravats)
15,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Reggae / Dancehall
Premo French trap producer and beat maker for Bad Gyal’s Spanish reggaeton hit ‘Fiebre’, King Doudou answers his call up to the crack squad at Low Jack’s Les Disques De La Bretagne in heavy style. Leading on from bullets by Low Jack, Clara!, Iueke and Rainforest Spiritual Enslavement, Doudou’s double header finds him do gully drill with Baile Funk innovator MC Buseta and yung gun Kaydy Cain on ‘Novinha’, alongside the darker dembow knuck of ‘Tremendo Bumbum’, both replete with grade A instrumentals.
Elg - Vu Du Dome
Vu Du Dome
LP | 2018 | EU | Original (Editions Gravats)
18,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Mutant troubadour Laurent Gerard a.k.a. Elg makes an ideal addition to the misfits at Editions Gravats with Vu Du Dome, a patently strange record resembling a sort of cryptic opera or the dramaturgy of a waking dream. Leading listeners up the garden path after the Mauve Zone [Nashazphone, 2016] album, the French-Belgian artist’s latest album feels like a stroll around a topiary maze at twilight on a warm night, with Elg acting as a spectral protagonist narrating/ranting in first person while a supporting cast including Catherine Hershey, Borja Flames and Ernest Bergez only make the trip more unfathomable.
JiFlure - Extraits
12" | 2016 | EU | Original (Editions Gravats)
11,24 €* 14,99 € -25%
Release:2016 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Low Jack’s unpredictable Editions Gravats twist out gruff, grooving Extraits of texturhythmic sound art from Jean-François Plomb’s JiFlure installation, making up the french artist/plastician’s idiosyncratic début release.
These are tightly coiled yet wickedly chaotic creations, gleaned from a jerry-rigged set-up of three compressed cardboard suitcases containing 4 x mechanical sanzas (Mbiras a.k.a. thumb pianos) built from circular saw blades and brochette spikes (metal skewers), all powered and excited by windscreen wiper motors and an array of homemade vibrators, mechanical drums, metronome and harmonica.
The workshopped results are inarguably congo-ruous with what you’ll find outta Düsseldorf’s Diskant label, and also bear a striking resemblance with the ferric tang of Konono No.1’s thumb piano techno, yet they hail from a rather different artistic process altogether, which possibly shares more in common with Jeff Keen’s self-built sound blatz or Pierre Bastien’s mechanical instrument compositions.
However, they all share a ruggedly rhythmic charge between them, one that relishes in the grit and infidelity of hypnotically repetitive, moiré-like pattern, and the friction of gear-grinding texture: something universally understood by DJs and dancers looking for ruder, unique styles to move mind and body.
