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 ...

Bruno Belissimo is an intentionally mispelled moniker that plays on the Italian adjective “bellissimo” (translation: “very beautiful”). Not by chance, this playful DJ, producer and multi-instrumentalist has Italian-Canadian origins. Born to Italian parents and ...
