BRIGANTE PARTY with Atili & Higher Light & Mana & Prendy & Green Cross & Adam Paris & G Rhyme
In 2015, Biga*Ranx and a group of friends founded the independent label Brigante Records. Composed of singers, producers, musicians and a designer, this label aims to develop Reggae, Dub and Hip-Hop music as well as to encourage local music creation. We also perform a “Brigante Party” which is an opportunity to bring together the Brigante Crew on stage, to offer fans of Reggae, Electro and Rub-a-dub, a unique evening. It is in this spirit that you can find a Brigante Records « carte blanche » at the Reggae Sun Ska on Friday, August 2nd!
Atili : With 7 solo albums, Atili has established himself as a key producer. Counting to his credit many collaborations, Atili has often been a support of choice for many artists who have used his productions. Widely acclaimed by radio playlists in France and abroad, each of his interventions is unanimous, all successful and inspired. From his encounters with artists such as Biga * Ranx, Big Red, Gappy Ranks, Joseph Cotton, Prendy (and many others) remain a “Bass Music” base that Atili particularly likes. But he continues his exploration of electronic music and adds ingredients that can be found in the Berlin scene.
Adam Paris : The British MC, Adam Paris has been performing for a long time in the “Bass” nights in France. His powerful flow has been developed within Reggae, Blues, Gospel and Drum and Bass bands. During the Brigante Party, it allows him to adapt to different styles of music. Adam Paris has participated on 2 songs of the new project of Atili, the first will be in rotation on Radio Nova from the beginning of April.
Supa Mana : A compulsive collector of vinyls, Supa Mana fell into reggae when she was small. Sparkling and dynamic, she has already seduced a wide audience in France and internationally. Her charisma and Digital Dub style make her one of the most popular Reggae women producers in France in 2019. Her first album, “Double Trouble” is a mix of Reggae and Bass Music that transports you into a digital world, dub club, specific to the atmosphere of Brigante Records.
Higher Light : In 2005, 3 friends from Tours decided to join their Reggae passion to form Higher Light. Beginning by playing their vinyls in different nights in Tours, the 3 DJs are focusing little by little on the eighties, digital and raggamuffin culture. Since 2006, they host their own show “Reggae Stories” on Radio Campus Tours. In 2010, Jeep, one of the three instigators, began composing. After releasing 4 EPs and 2 mixtapes on Brigante Records, he makes the choice to release only singles, especially those with G-Rhyme or Twan Tee.
Prendy : A self-taught musician and singer, Prendy’s voice is atypical and touching. Spotted by Biga*Ranx who invited him to join his label Brigante Records, he recorded in studio with Joseph Cotton a cover of Teddy Pendergrass which earned him the name of Prendy. Whether it’s alongside Biga*Ranx on the song “Bossman” or on Atili’s album “Bridge Over Troubled Dreams”, it’s clear that Prendy has an atypical flow within the French reggae scene. And we are glad to announce that his solo album is in preparation and will be released at the end of 2019, on Brigante Records.
Green Cross : Green Cross takes his first steps in music with his guitar and then he starts taking the microphone with Biga * Ranx at the age of 15 years. From U-Roy to Supercat, the two singers are inspired by their masters and then develop and perfected their style: the Toasting. With a first album, “Addicted” (ODGProd, 2013) and an EP “Old School Flavor” (Brigante Records, 2015), Green Cross returns in 2018 with the project “Mic Alchemist” (Brigante Records). Concocted in part by Olo (OndubGround) but also by Dubmatix and Atili, this album delivers us a Reggae Digital with accents Hip-Hop and Dub.
G-Rhyme : is a 27-year-old British MC who is one of Brigante Records’ newest recruits. From the age of 13, G-Rhyme began singing and putting together his own lyrics over drum n bass and grime music with his friends on the school yard, He then went on to perform at small venues in and around his home town from the age of 16 onwards, Today, he masters Grime, Hip-Hop, Reggae and Dancehall with an assertive and sharp flow. After the release of his mixtape “Ry’N’ii”, he comes back in 2019 with a first album produced by Brigante Records.
