SummaryThe French soul/ hip hop label PadBleM has accomplished the feat of releasing a new album every month in 2009. For its own pleasure and that of true music lovers always searching for rare and precious objects, what could be better than a limited edition double 7" vinyl. This 4-track EP includes the next gems Mil, Marie M. and the best of the year 2009, Kanyor, La Sphère. « Automne // Hiver » is a perfect blend of the Hip Hop / Soul genres.
Side A: Mil "Emily" from the album Les Fleurs du Mil (due in March 2010). After getting discovered for his impressive versions of the albums of J.DILLA and WILDCHILD, his Miltape and his band Blumonk, Mil will release his first 'real' album this year. After working with the best beatmakers in France (Sheety, Quetzal, Creestal, Jobe, Onra, 20syl from the band Hocus Pocus, S.Téban, Tayreeb), here comes his first single. An acoustic track with hints of soul, on the topic of marriage. Track performed in French, chorus in English.
Side B: Marie M. "Night O' Clock" from her first studio album (due in June 2010). After her album of covers, where she performed some of the classics that have influenced her (Jill Scott, Erykah Badu, Finley Quaye, Rh Factor...), Marie M., who has already collaborated with Brian Jackson, Dela, Quetzal, Kohndo (among others), offers us a journey through the night. Her voice smoothly settles on a production by Jazz Liberatorz (Dusty). Track performed in English.
Side C: Kanyor "Antidote" from the album "Antidote" (available since 15 May 2009). A talented singer-songwriter, Kanyor, often accompanied by his long-standing partner S.Téban, is following in the footsteps of the great Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye, Maxwell. His first single "For Real" is already playing on the prestigious radio NOVA. Track performed in English.
Side D: La Sphère "Pas de stress" from the album "Prélude" (available since 15 August 2009). They're from Rouen, a 2-hour ride from Paris, but it's as if they were a 2-hour ride away from Brooklyn; that's how much their music and flow sound like Boot Camp, Native Tongue... A positive message, some fresh air, a group of passionate people who make a high-quality sound. Track performed in French.
