At 24, French singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Clément Leroux is charting his own course. His fresh take on indie rock inspired dance music has already notched seven singles on trendsetting North American radio station SiriusXM Chill and landed his tunes on Belgian and French TV (Notélé & France 2’s Télématin). After early releases on Universal & Warner, Clément signed with Armada, the world’s largest independent label. His debut album “Circle Line” featured pop/deep house crossover “U Got My Heart,” which reached #1 on SXM Chill and hit #9 across all genres on France’s Viral 50 Chart. He regularly debuts on Spotify’s New Music Friday and has landed on official Spotify playlists such as Happy Beats, Chill Tracks, Electro Chill, Lounge-Soft House, Cratediggers, Indie Dance, Electronic Focus, Electronic Running, Coffee Club, Coffee Beats, & Fresh Touch plus top Apple playlists, namely A-List Pop, Chill House, & Relaxed/Remixed. Between his “Circle Line” album and “Circle Line: Sunsets” EP (chilled, alternative versions of original album tracks), Clément has been streamed 25M+ times and can be heard worldwide on radio, in shops such as Zara, Sephora, & Lululemon, and in fitness studios like Barry’s & Rumble. Growing up in the Lille, France area, Clément has always been influenced by art & music – his father is a talented painter and Clément earned a sound engineering degree in London.
Since making his debut in 2015, artist and producer Matoma has risen from a bedroom producer posting on SoundCloud to one of dance music’s biggest stars. Between his solo tracks, two albums and collabs with everyone from Dua Lipa to Snoop Dogg, the Norwegian artist amassed a staggering 2 billion + streams. With this new chapter in his career Matoma brings songs with the energy, irresistible melodies, and relatable stories that can get a party pumping, motivate your morning, or bring solace to sadness – cutting across genres but always connected by a sense of feelgood, everything-is-possible positivity. A sound that is flavoured with vintage synths and the warmth of live instrumentation from local musicians. It’s also the result of now having the creative freedom to release his music independently. Matoma’s music is a very natural extension of the man himself: the sonic equivalent to his beaming, beatific smile and constant quest to find ways to make a positive impact upon the world. Or, as he smiles, “This music is as close to who I am as you get.”
Vancouver-based electronic dance producer Vanic (aka Jesse Hughes) first caught listeners’ attention with a string of well-received remixes — including his reworking of machineheart‘s 2015 track “Circles” — before releasing his own trap- and house-influenced tracks. Following debut “Samurai,” he scored his first chart appearance in 2017 with Top 40 single “Too Soon.”
Zookëper was a young boy who was separated from his family twice and forced to defend himself against burglars Marv and Harry. After getting into a fight with his older brother, Buzz, who purposely ate Zookëper’s cheese pizza, Zookëper was sent to the third floor of the house by his mother Kate and he wished his family would disappear. The next morning, as the family prepared to leave, Zookëper was still sleeping. His cousin Heather mistook Mitch Murphy, Zookëper’s neighbor, for Zookëper. The family, in a rush, hurried off to the airport, not realizing that Zookëper was not with them. Later, Zookëper woke up to find his whole family gone. Zookëper was in a thrill and believed his wish came true, that he made his family disappear. He watched Angels with Filthy Souls and ate ice cream.
