Filastine & Nova (US)

The musical nomad Grey Filastine comes from Los Angeles but if he is not traveling the world and hunting for sounds or cooperating with musicians from various nations, his home in Barcelona, Catalonia. His music builds on deep sound frequencies and often uses ambient sounds; it permits the composer to communicate with people across continents and genre preferences. This trend is also confirmed by the latest record, £00T, and corresponding tour where Filastine works with an Indonesian vocalist who calls herself Nova.

Filastine’s music offers everyone to find everything they like, be it hip-hop and jungle, as well as major influences of North-African folk trance, Middle-East strings, Hindu vocals as well as rapping in French and Spanish. A crazy mix, you’re saying? Yes, it is – and it works very well, indeed.
