    French DJs write letter in protest of government’s new sound restrictions

    Sign in to follow this  

    Various French DJs are uniting to protest the new sound restrictions recently imposed on the country’s nightclubs and music festivals. Following President Emmanuel Macron’s public health decree in August, nightclubs and festivals alike are expected to comply with the restrictions, which reduce maximum noise levels by three decibels, dropping the maximum noise allowance to 102 total decibels. The decree is also instituting restrictions on bass output.

    The newly introduced sound limitations seek to reduce the risk of hearing problems caused by attendance at loud events, but a number of French dance music figures are voicing their opposition to restrictions. Laurent Garnier, Jean Michel Jarre, and several other artists signed on to the letter published by the French news source Libération, that states that the sound limitations will “…quiet down fun, muzzle music, and stop artistic work living in its physical dimension.”

    The collaborative letter compares a bassline to a vocalist’s voice, noting that the bassline is “…just as keenly felt as a beautiful voice is by other music fans.” The artists rallying against the sound restrictions emphasize their shared sentiment that their “…artistic freedom is being sacrificed” as a result of the new limitations. French nightclubs are also joining the anti-sound restriction movement.

    The artists that signed the published letter cautioned officials that the limitations might result in a decline in the number of people venturing out to nightclubs and festivals.

      Alongside the likes of Paces, Lastlings and CVIRO, Jake Carmody is leading the Gold Coast's musical renaissance and now delivers a crisp new track ‘Alone feat. Savoi’, for his debut release on Tinted Records. For this release, Jake has teamed up with Brisbane singer-songwriter Savoi, who has worked with the likes of Enschway, Yahtzel and most notably LDRU, on his hit track ‘Next To You’. The producers new track uses layers of ethereal and atmospheric sounds to pair with Savoi’s vocals which together build to what Jake does best, a futuristic, stuttering drop.
       
      Jake discusses how the track came together "Alone is the mark I've been aiming at since I started making music. Savoi's vocals inspire me to be as daring and creative with as the production as possible. I'm attracted to textures and melodies more than structure and formulas. I wanted Alone to feel like an art house film, with twists and turns that break champion curiosity over convention."
       
      Jake’s inspiration comes from an eclectic variety of influences, ranging from Lana Del Ray and Lorde all the way to What So Not and Hudson Mowhake, which has inspired the producer to construct something that is truly unique. The Gold Coast based artist has made a name for himself since producing an epic remix of Vance Joy’s cover of ‘Georgia On My Mind’. Dabbling in various other projects, Jake has garnered support from the likes of triple j, Pilerats and EDM Sauce.  
      ‘Alone feat. Savoi’ is out now on Tinted Records.

      "Its ambient pulses shimmer in and out before shallou brings it back to the driving heartbeat of the song" - SPIN
      "his vulnerability makes him stand out from the pack" - FADER
      "shallou's ambient electronics are transformative" - NYLON
      "It's time electronic communities of all kinds start paying him his due" Hillydilly
      "shallou is ready to break out" - Complex
      "textured, sun-kissed sound" - Clash
       
       
      Prolific L.A.-based ambient electronic musician shallou (real name Joe Boston) has released his first single of 2019; 'All Your Days' with Emmit Fenn. 'All Your Days' is quintessentially shallou; otherworldly, pulsating beats complimented by vulnerable vocal, which is all the while uplifting and resonant. There's a delicate beauty to the song, which is in part due to the collaborative efforts of featured artist and multi-instrumentalist Emmit Fenn. Listen via the link below.
       
      Speaking about the song, Joe explains "Emmit originally wrote the demo for Coldplay, just his voice and keys. When he played it for me I knew we could come together and make something special that felt genuine to both of our sounds. We both wanted to express the simple moments of love. There’s so many songs about heartbreak that we’ve all written and heard on the radio, so we thought it would be nice to have a pretty song like this people can escape into or maybe reminisce with. Like a lot of my production, I like to infuse happy lyrics with a tinge of moody sounds to make them feel more emotional, and this track definitely exemplifies that."
       
      In addition to the release, shallou has announced he will be performing twice at this year's Coachella; his first appearance at the world renowned music and arts festival, which will also play host to Childish Gambino, Ariana Grande, Aphex Twin, Solange and  Tame Impala. In true shallou fashion, he is also due to embark on an extensive run of dates across North America, both as co-headline with Slow Magic and on a solo headline run. Full dates are listed below.
       
      The Maryland-born producer had an exceptional 2018, performing worldwide, including a sold out London date, with over 250 million collective streams of his releases to date. He has been championed by FADER, Complex, NYLON, Clash, SPIN, SiriusXM and even had his face adorning a billboard in New York City's Times Square.

      Betical is the French sibling duo that produce eclectic and immersive electronic music. Embracing the musical world at the ripe age of ten 10, the brothers passion ignited soon after the prolific weight of the French touch movement. As we look forward to the release of their first ever EP later this year, Betical release the last slice of abstract and exhilarating work within new single, Strangers.
       
      Betical derive from a technological restriction that saw the duo tackle solo work with only one laptop. As both brothers’ love for production grew, together with their needs for the laptop, they decided to join forces to make the most of their limited equipment. As well as leading music focused lives, one brother still holds an obsession in the equally creative industry of graphic design. Pushing this to the forefront of the Betical project, the brothers enjoy utilising this skill to create their brand, artwork and many other assets from scratch.
       
      Betical’s biggest success, Control, garnered hundreds of thousands of Spotify streams, alongside electronic staples Voices and remixes of Casual and Back for More. Also known for superb reimagination of Kungs’ This Girl the duo showcased mainstream appeal with support from BBC Radio 1 amongst other key tastemakers. As the third release in the project, the Surrender single encapsulated Betical’s immense skill for producing music with cinematic appeal. Visually supported by their own video creation, Betical showcased an immersive gaming experience with a retro, glitchy landscape that captures their erratic flare perfectly.
       
      Enjoying their focus on original productions, the final release ahead of the Strangers in the Night EP has come as a respectful nod to a delightfully obscure combination of soul and techno. Predominantly instrumental, Strangers is an expansive and unpredictable effort from Betical. Boasting heavily produced vocals that ride softly over the main event, which is of course the underlying and progressing vigour revealed within the prominent riff line. 
       
      Betical - Stranger is out now.
