BIG? NOT YET

B?NY | #007 | a couple of behind-the-scenes facts

Another issue has been sent, so here we have a couple of behind-the-scenes facts of NL #007: this is the last one till the B?NY crew is physically reunited again. We're quite looking forward to it! We all noticed the relaunching was a bit accidental, but in the end it turned out into the prettiest curse. Moreover, we carefully explored new decision-making processes to take into account each of our criterions and the first round is concluding in the NL you’ve just opened. It feels like a ritual; an unknown circle is closing in a good way as the world seems to be reopening as well.

Weste (Argentina / Uruguay)

We’re eager to share our impression of this promising lo-fi hip hop - experimental fusion duo that’s now presenting Abanico, a danceable LP that includes vast instrumental inspirations. Some of Weste’s acoustic songs and themes bring to mind Perota Chingo’s celestial aura. Nevertheless, their sound goes further than folk and incorporates rougher progressions and classy loops.

Divino Niño (USA / Colombia)

Angelic names may harbor an irrepressible storm behind… Divino Niño are indeed a total warm-blooded whirlwind. Foam (2019), their latest LP, is a romantic manifesto of daily sensations in a perfectly suiting Spanglish. If you’re into fairly psych guitars and lo-fi synths, there’s no need to say more.

Zaia (USA)

Zaia has a natural way of expressing with lyrics the darkest and brightest moments of life. Testing limits of rap music with a funk-fueled vision, his LP is full of anthems for when something's bringing you down. A lover for quality live instrumentation, specially on tour, he loves to create music on the spot. We can't wait to hear him live!

Fehdah (Ireland)

Fehdah is not just a regular producer, singer and songwriter. She's trying to find balance between two musical cultures that have defined herself: Gambia (West-Africa) and Ireland. The result? A powerful mix of Irish traditional sounds, West African pop and R&B electro-soul, with a talented use of the most unique instruments. As you'll listen her creativity has no limits.

Jimmy Whoo (France)

How come we never talked about hip-hop bases in electronic music? Young Jimmy Whoo grew from his early influences up to creating his own jazzy and R&B digitalised dimension, and has culminated it with a spectacular live DJ set. DIY playful sounds make a quantum leap in his last release, Basic Instincts, but also in details such as the sly onomatopoeic “Whoo” in his pseudonym.
