So what ? of Ade
Almost a year after the separation of Therapie Taxi in 2021, its singer, the bubbly Adé begins her solo career with So what ? A disc imbued with pop and folk, which she recorded in Nashville, the mythical cradle of country in Tennessee, America. The time of a road movie.
Vision Drum by Bertrand Belin
On vision drum, his seventh disc, the elegant Bertrand Belin makes his metaphors, his images dance on electro sounds with rockabilly echoes… The opportunity also to lift the veil on his inner worlds and his existential paths.

Absent from the bins since the semi-failure of Disizilla in 2018, Disiz, aka Sérigne M’Baye Gueye, came back strong with Love, his most personal project, where we meet Damso and Yseult. Interview, concert, new start.

Miss K by Miss K.
She regained her independence in 2015 following a breach of contract with her record company. Today, Mademoiselle K publishes a sixth eponymous album crossed by the fantasy and the carnal and which perfectly illustrates, apart from a folk side step of the most beautiful effect, the ardor and the rock energy of its beginnings.
Temple Road by Naaman
Produced in a worrying personal context for health issues, Naâman’s fourth studio album, baptized Temple Road carries within it a light and depth that recalls the singer’s attachment to India, his country of residence. Ten years after bursting onto the reggae scene in France, the Norman singer is showing as much audacity as skill.

Trained in piano at a classical conservatory, he now plays with the greatest rappers, such as Médine, Scylla or Vald… And has already released two solo piano discs, which have delighted the general public. But who is this new piano prodigy who explodes codes and upsets stylistic boundaries, between rap, classical and variety?

Stup Forever by Stupeflip
It’s a funny armada led by a masked singer. Stupeflip delivers its 5th album in twenty years of career, Stup Forever, and operates a well-controlled return to basics. Where we passionately follow the adventures of King-Ju, vigilante who produces sound loops full of images, behind his computer, and his funny friends.
