Mona Musique is the imprint from Nick V, curator and resident DJ behind longstanding night Mona. First and foremost the vinyl-only label is an embodiment of the Parisian parties that have been bringing together Voguers, Waackers and club dancers for more than a decade. Calling once again on the production skills of Hugo LX - who featured on Mona Musique’s debut release – “NY Collage” reminds us why he is a firm favourite with label boss Nick V. A standout soulful bassline and trademark Hugo LX drum beat, makes this a sophisticated choice to lift up the dancefloor.Over on the B side is a remix from man of the moment Kaytronik. The DJ/producer veteran, also known as Karizma, has reworked the track to almost beyond recognition. Deep and dreamy, a new bassline gives it that raw kick, evocative of London in the later hours of the night.Closing off the EP is a remix of ‘Drifting Away’, Hugo LX’s aforementioned Mona Musique debut. Crafted by Ambrose, the production head behind releases on late 90s House labels Kif SA and Basenotic, he is also the imprint’s studio engineer. A fan of the Kenlou/MAW era, Ambrose’s rework remains true to the deepness of the original cut, but mixes things up with a tougher, harder-hitting edge and wonky keys.

The French-Afropean duo is back with a new funky masterpiece album! DjeuhDjoah & Lieutenant Nicholson are French composers and afro-soul singers. The duo are creating a new vibe with French sounds and mixing it with Jazz, Afrobeat, Electronic and Soul. T’es qui ? was their first album released in 2015 and re-released a year later under the name Remets t'es qui? It was result of an intense collaboration that has lasted many years, on stage and in the studio. They call their music “Afropean songs”, a collection of Jazzy-Pop melodies, Afro-Soul and Funk arrangements.This new album has 15 songs, and features a tribute to the famous poet Aimé Césaire on the title. The Antilles are also honored with creole lyrics, and if you listen carefully – you’ll hear them distilled within the album. La Montagne Pelée's eruption in 1902 is evoked under the prism of “August Cyparis”, one of the three survivors. The rhythms are tight and focused, with some Antilles, but also Detroit elements thrown in, accompanied with a strong horns section, vibraphone and analog drums. There are lots of echoes from the era of Jazz funk and the lyrical French Mode, mixed with some slightly warmer currents that show their wider love of modern funk and eclectic tastes. It is a unique sound, an original recipe, using French wordplay with a universal message. Last summer, they presented the now critically acclaimed first single “El Nino”, an Afro-Funk gem about climate change, and “Fontaine”, an Afro hit with a great combination of analog take and electronic dance floor ingredients. With massive support from national radios and prestigious international DJs such as Gilles Peterson, Aimez ces airs could be one of the Top funky albums of 2019!Limited press on a deluxe double vinyl cover designed by the artist Felix, mastered by Dj Vas.
For the second chapter of his odyssey, we find again Le Commandant Couche Tôt in the middle of the Amazon River, escaping from drones and wildfires in a hovercraft.Une Histoire d’Amour Brésilienne (A brazilian love story) shares a dystopian vision widely inspired by the environmental issues of 2020 and 2021, which illustrates a form of anxiety toward the future.Its soundtrack however is purposely the antithesis of the story: a very optimistic tribute to space-disco and brazilian funk. A “good vibe” pill to give hope for a new beginning.
