“Finding a path through the dance music jungle has never proven so difficult. With so much on offer, standing out from the pretenders has become a supreme objective in the studio, on the stage, and everywhere in between. Fortunately for Montréal’s Louis-Joseph Cliche and Maxime Bellavance, they’ve solved the puzzle by excelling in production, performance, and creative communication.”
“The Beat Market is now open, and the grooves are fresh and ripe for the picking. A funky, technical style shows in “Doors”(…) If the rest of the album is similar in overall quality, it will definitely be one to look out for.”
“Beat Market combines organic instrumentation with digital production to form a style that is as infectious as it is innovative”.
“Sun Machine” is the new album from Montreal-based electronic duo Beat Market which is slated for release on the 11th November. “Sun Machine” include collaborations with long-time friends singers Malika and Aiza, Robert Perlick Molinari – vocalist of French Horn Rebellion and fellow Montreal icon APigeon.
Louis-Joseph Cliche and Max Bellavance met at university. The two both studied jazz and remain impassioned about new technologies; at college, the duo would experiment in the studio for nights on end, creating wild electronic jams. Their goal: to bring electronic music to a live setting where they could express themselves as true musicians. At their first gigs, Beat Market’s communicative energy gained countless local fans. The duo has garnered support from the likes of Thump, Dancing Astronaut and KCRW to name but a few.
Drawing influences from the likes of Hudson Mohawke, Major Lazer, Mr. Oizo, Yellow Magic Orchestra, Kaytranada, Deadmau5, Daft Punk and Justice, Beat Market’s new album features sophisticated French house beats and thumping rhythms. “We want to create a music that makes people move, dance and have fun. An instrumental journey easy to understand and feel. If they feel good when they listen, that’s the right path…” explain the duo.
Expect impending updates about Beat Market and their new album “Sun Machine” due for release on the 11th November.
