CHILDREN OF ZEUS X FRANÇOIS BOULO
FRIDAY 26 APRIL 2019
Children of Zeus, the R&B and soul project from two of the UK’s fastest rising artists Konny Kon and Tyler Daley, bring the grit and energy of their Manchester home together with Brittany-bred, music-obsessed graphic designer Francois Boulo to together craft a series of visual artworks inspired by the Mancunian duo’s music and evolving as a direct and collaborative expression of the mood and colour of Paris.
CHILDREN OF ZEUS
Children of Zeus is the making of Konny Kon and Tyler Daley, both veterans of Manchester's music scene, who now together make music in a lane of its own. Konny Kon has made waves as MC, DJ and producer for over two decades, best known as one third of Broke ’N’ English alongside fellow Mancunians DRS and Strategy, while Tyler Daley's inimitable soulful vocals have seen him collaborate with D&B stalwart Goldie, Lenzman and LSB. Last summer they celebrated their second album release at London's iconic Jazz Cafe and in 2019 continue to defy musical convention in every way possible.
Parisian-based graphic designer François Boulo is a music-obsessed graphic designer and art director specialised in exploring the relationship between music and visuals.
Paris born and raised, Andy 4000 is a discreet DJ who is quietly taking over the world. From the Wanderlust to the Rouge Pigalle, through to The Bourbon Hotel and The Carmen, The Machine of the Mill, Red or the Rex Club, Andy does not stop and no club, warehouse, is a barrier. From Hip Hop classics, to Trap sounds, Afrobeat, AfroHouse or Brazilian rhythms, you can tune into her sets every morning on Rinse France.
With only 3 records behind him on esteemed labels like Beat X Changers and S3A Records, producer and DJ Fred Bwelle aka Neue Grafik has quickly risen as one of the most promising acts to come out of the new French and European electronic scene.
His sound is best described as eclectic and versatile. It’s the product of a mixture of roots and a wide-ranging palette of inspiration. In his music you can hear the sound of Paris (his home-town), its music and cultural legacy, the ethnic sounds of Africa, as well as House, Jazz, Broken Beat and Hip-Hop.
