Barbagallo
Based in
France, Toulouse, Perth
Style
Pop
Science is unequivocal: without an event of cataclysmic proportions or the intervention of a god of some kind, turning the world upside down is an impossible task. You want summer in December? There seems to be only one solution: cross the Equator, head south and you’ll find warm temperatures and hot sand, luxuriant forests and scorching sunshine. Unless someone proves science wrong. This someone might be Julien Barbagallo. Don’t move, not even a toe – listen to this man’s second album under his own name, Grand chien, and you’ll immediately forget about the cold and the grim, the fallen leaves, the naked trees, the flu and ...

MHD
Based in
France, Paris
Style
Mohammed Sylla aka MHD is the face of the 2016 French rap scene you should remember. The young rapper was born in France in 1994, but owes his amazing success to a unique mixture of Afro-trap, which gained prominence after he piled on a bunch of hits that placed him firmly in the spotlight. Being of both Guinean and Senegalese descent, he manages to get the perfect recipe of American-like trap music and African sounds....
Super Parquet
Based in
France, Clermont-Ferrand
Style
Super Parquet. Literally, "great wooden floor". It’s not the name of a DIY store but of a band from Auvergne, an unlikely meeting between four guys from backgrounds in traditional regional music and electronica, two worlds that seem to have nothing in common. Defining their style is not easy, but letting yourself go when they play live definitely is. Their gigs lie midway between a village fair and a rave party, a colourful mixture blending traditional sounds with electronic ones. Bagpipes, the banjo and unidentified local instruments flirt with synthetic machine sounds, and their relationship seems as natural and harmonious as can be....
Nusky & Vaati
Based in
France, Montrouge
Style

Don’t be fooled by their teenage faces – these two know exactly what they’re doing. Or at least, they experiment and do it pretty well. With daring and aplomb, Nusky & Vaati are pushing the boundaries of French rap.

They met in 2014, after Nusky had listened and loved one of Vaati’s productions and contacted him over Facebook. Two mixtapes soon followed, with each one of them playing his part. Nusky, the rapper, crafts the lyrics, while Vaati, the producer, creates the beats. Traditional rapper clichés don’t suit Nusky, as evident from the videos, devoid of fancy cars, muscles, bling and submissive girls with ...

Jacques
Based in
France, Strasbourg, Paris
Style
Tout est magnifique ("Everything is wonderful"), boldly states Strasbourg-born and Paris-based producer Jacques's first EP, released on his up-and-coming label Pain Surprise. His claim is to be taken very literally; for the young, bizarre, hilarious yet profound man, who hides deep thoughts and serious mysticism beneath his freakishly tonsured scalp, each and every one of the soulless things that surround you is full of wonders. Those pans you cook your steak in, the old cheese grater sleeping in the dust of a forgotten cupboard? Full of secrets, mysteries and sounds. The screwdriver you cursed at heavily while painfully assembling ...
