Watch the video by CLAAP! & Santana for JACQUES here:

“In a sea of identikit imprints, Berlin born label Exploited continues to surprise and impress us with their unique and varied output. Case in point, this new video release from Paris DJ duo CLAAP! and DJ-cum-vocalist Santana – no, not the Spanish guitar legend, but someone altogether more modern. Part of a “mini compilation” edition (and an ongoing series) that also includes cuts from Until The Ribbon Breaks, Sirens Of Lesbos and K.E.E.N.E., “Jacques” has finally got
the video treatment, and it couldn’t have come at a better time. Oozing holiday vibes, the sunwashed visuals come courtesy of Polina Rabtseva, a fine art videographer whose output has included both work for big brands like Mercedes and Bacardi, as well as more esoteric explorations of erotica – from, importantly, Rabtesva’s female perspective. Filmed in Dune du Pilat (close to Bordeaux in France), and one of CLAAP!’s favorite places on earth, the video follows a bunch of real-life friends having an enviably good time; it’s the perfect accompaniment to the track’s ludicrously buoyant beat and unashamedly good vibes. Plug in and lay back…” (http://www.wonderlandmagazine.com/2016/07/video-premiere-jacques-claap-feat-santana/)

About UTRB:
Having wrapped up three sell out North American tours, the three piece band fronted by Cardiff native, Pete Lawrie Winfield recall how as youngsters you would give a “girl or a friend a mixtape to let them know what music you loved. It didn’t matter if one song was De La Soul and the next was R.E.M. It was about the feeling the entire collection conveyed.” Drawing both their approach and name from their art form, Until The Ribbon Breaks are a uniquely skilled, singing, songwriting, producing collective. Decidedly honest, their music embraces an old-school passion for intricate, clever writing and the slicing together of sounds, samples and lyrics; a skill demonstrated in debut track ‘Pressure’ and the accompanied self-made video which they released on YouTube two years ago. Mesmeric, dark apocalyptic pop, meets infectious “Avant RnB” in a way that is both haunting and beautiful in its raw confrontation of human emotion. We had the honour to have ’Pressure’ remixed by Sirens Of Lesbos with commission from the band.

About SIRENS OF LESBOS:
SOL is an anonymous six piece collective claiming to have its creative Kibbutz somewhere in the Aegean Sea off Greece. The group made it’s mark with its debut single «Long Days, Hot Nights». Lately, they have been hosting their Essays Series – various EPs tailored exclusively for the dancefloor – a musical kaleidoscope which reaches from afro-house to balearic disco.

About K.E.E.N.E. :
K.E.E.N.E. is the duo formed by the brothers Lloyd and Kevin Keene, who since 2010 have become a referent for house and techno music in Panama.
The duo has created four important spaces for the promotion as well as enjoyment of electronic music in Panama: Flashmob Music Movement and Boat Affairs, a series of shows with international Dj’s like: tINI, Radio Slave, Till Von Sein, Benoit & Sergio, Anja Schneider, Rodriguez Jr. Dj Tennis, Henrik Schwarz, Soul Clap, Adam Port, &ME and Hot Since 82 to mention few. Also Late Night Music and We Connect, where new local artists show their stuff every week.
In the last two years they have been able to bring to Panama Seth Troxler, Dixon and Nicolas Jaar. Their commitment to develop local talent has also enticed them to create their own label, Late Night Music, which main goal is to promote local producers in an international market.
As partners/ founders of Teatro Amador in 2013, a former movie theater that first opened in 1912, electronic music in Panama has a temple for its thousands of followers. Besides managing Late Night Music’s roaster of shows, K.E.E.N.E. have moved to Berlin to focus on their new music.
