Automelodi is a project of Xavier Paradis, also known under the pseudonym Arnaud Lazlaud. Xavier lives in Montreal, where he has been present on the local electronic scene for over a decade. He describes his project as “Impossible Folk Music”. His work is a combination of European electronic music of the 80s and 90s with a modern approach to production, dance and pop music. Automelodi has released two full-length albums, the last of which is Surlendemains acides released in 2013.
Producer, composer, songwriter, Montreal’s Xarah Dion works on the verge of minimal wave. Dion’s well-received first LP Le Mal Nécessaire (2014) brought her to widely tour Europe. The new LP Fugitive (out on 30/09/16 via Visage Musique) expands Dion’s rich analog sound. With skillful arrangements, signature melodies, odd rhythms and personal tone, Fugitive ushers in a vanguard yet classic sound.
