SOUND FAMILLY"KILLA CARLTOON"

KILLA CARLTOON

Artiste-compositeur renommé de la scène reggae/ragga/hip-hop, Killa Carltoon est de retour dans le paysage musical français avec un nouvel opus plein de fraîcheur et d'originalité.

Sens du gimmick, lyrics explosifs, flow (d)éto...nnant, il est une figure reconnue du ragga français. Dès le milieu des années 90, Killa écume les sound systems et participe à des tournées importantes, affirmant sa richesse musicale et une identité très forte.Fort d’une personnalité affirmée et d’une voix si particulière , cet artiste n’a jamais eu peur de casser les barrières musicales, tout au long de sa carrière.
Doté d' une puissance vocale impressionnante et d'un débit sidérant, il impose son style à chaque étape de son évolution musicale.
Killa s’affirme ainsi en tant qu’artiste de scène : il en fera même son domaine de prédilection !
Il assure des scènes majeures : le Zénith de Paris, l’Olympia (à deux reprises, première partie de Sergent Garcia), les Francofolies de la Rochelle, le Nancy jazz festival, l’Elysée-Montmartre, la Villette, le Printemps de Bourges (à deux reprises)... Il joue également en Belgique,en Suisse,en Allemagne,au Soudan....
Il démontre alors une capacité hors du commun à faire bouger et danser le public, ce qui lui vaut le respect de la scène rock, électro ou jazz.
Le disc "Addict" est une invitation au voyage, à l'amour et à l'espoir. Il exhale sans complexe les saveurs de l'IIe Maurice, pays de ses origines et y mêle des accents reggae, ragga, latinos voir orientaux…
Killa est de retour, avec un plate pour le "DANCEHALL HOOLIGANZ",et comme le titre de l'album le précise, vous risquez fortement de tomber tous "Addict" !

CLANDO DIAÏ

                     Originaire de : France/Paris

 

Issue de Vitry/Seine,Clando Diaï demarre dans le son vers 15 ans,(1990-1991)hip hop dans l’ecriture et au mic,et déjà l’envie de créer du son,avec comme premier materiel,une Boite Yamaha RX7,dont il ne se separe plus..

Diverses experiences sonores et scenes,pour finalement se retrouver a ne composer que du riddim,le ragga/dancehall prenant le pas petit a petit sur ses influences..

Il investit donc dans un sampler/boite Korg Electribe,qui lui ouvre de plus amples possibilités dans la compo intuitive..

Puis c’est le pas vers le PC,avec bien sur Software gratos et samples trouvés sur le tas..

Pas de "Home Studio",pas de table de mixage,ni de carte son specifique,juste un clavier maitre et un pc de"bureau".. Une marque de fabrique.

Sous le Nom Du Q.G.Represailles ,avec son ami d’enfance et toaster »Chef Brias »,il commence les diverses collaborations sur myspace,avec pour but et comme obligation de ne pas mettre d’argent dans ses compos et ses feats..

Il croise la route de pas mal de chanteurs qui partagent sa vision du son,des usa,jamaique,uk et d'autres plus etonnants,dans la gratuité la plus totale..

La vibz pour la vibz,Tunes Sans Thunes.

Puis c’est la rencontre avec Papa Gastna,et Mixin’Chicken,avec qui il forme « DANCEHALL HOOLIGANZ »,en tant que Riddimer.

La suite est a ecrire..

Bless.

ASANTE AMEN              

                    Originaire de :      Jamaica/Kingston

“I believe I was born to sing the Most Highs’ praises and inspire people through sound”. In a nutshell this sentence describes the kind of artist Asante Amen – born Gavin

Walters – is.

As a singer/songwriter he has penned many songs and has added harmonies to numerous others over his 9 year stint in the music business. As a performer he has graced the stages of some of the more prestigious events in reggae music such as; Rebel Salute (JA), Irie Jamboree (USA), St. Mary Mi Come From (JA) and The Woodstock Reggae Festival (USA). He has performed in the United States of America, The Bahamas, Grenada and all across Jamaica; however this is just the beginning as he looks forward to his music carrying him to places and venues across Europe, Asia and Africa.

Asante Amen has had the privilege of collaborating on tracks with artists such as Lutan Fyah and Jah Thundah as well as a host of other local and international reggae artists. For Asante, music speaks to him in a very special way and so far, by all accounts, all his singles releases to date have had a similar impact on many reggae fans across the world as well.

After taking a year off (2009) to explore other aspects of life, Asante Amen has returned with a number of new singles and is also presently shooting a new music video for one of the singles. Songs such as WHY and CAAN MANAGE are fresh, new and creative tracks from Asante that have been released and are receiving much love from the public so far. WIPE YOUR TEARS however is the new single that is expected to do even more for him and its’ impending release will be coupled with a video that expertly captures the songs’ storyline.

So for Asante Amen 2010 and beyond is looking bright and his musical journey is expected to grow from strength to strength.
