Navettes’ is the debut LP from Baron Rétif & Concepción Perez (BR&CP). After releasing three records with Musique Large (home to Debruit, Laurent Garnier and Fulgeance) as well as with parisian label Heavenly Sweetness and assorted remixes and rap beats, they are back with Musique Large for their first full-length album.
The heavy basslines and reverb-soaked productions of their earlier work have developed into their self-styled « Decalette » sound, a mix of off-kilter hip-hop and subtle jazz notes. With an emphasis on live drums blended with Fender Rhodes and vintage synths this pushes their song-writing and production skills to new heights. Their organic recording process (including tape over dubs and a host of live instrumentation) infuses the project with an analogue warmth that previous more sample-heavy work only hinted at.
Largely instrumental, the album also features guests Benjamin Glibert (Aquaserge) playing bass on «Navette» and «ML disco club», COEFF spitting rhymes on «Kamoulox» & Napoleon Maddox singing on «The Crave». BR&CP music sounds like Perrier sparkling water: never automatic, always elastic !Pre-Order Album
