The Maghreb Futuristic Spring
Coming from the Tunisian alternative music scene, Deena works to inject a dose of innovation and experimentation in Electronique Music.

Now working alone, she's supported by artists as Acid Arab, Morphosis, Bachar Mar-Khalifé or Débruit. She played at many events such as the CTM festival in Berlin, Sound of Stockholm, the RBMA festival, Villette Sonique in Paris, the Festival Transmusicales in Rennes, and soon Sónar
Carl Craig Presents Versus Synthesizer Ensemble
A Balance Between Techno and Classical Music
In 2008 at La Cité de la Musique, Carl Craig played his best techno songs revisited in a symphonic way with Francesco Tristano for an exceptional concert. After a long process of reflexion/composition/recording, their album «Versus» was released in May 2017 ( InFiné Music / Planet-e). With the side-project «Versus Synthesizer Ensemble», Carl Craig presents a live variation orchestrated with a large and rare range of keyboards and synths. First date at Sonar on June 17th, be there !
Chloé is an electronic music artist suspended between genres and aesthetics unable to be categorized. With a style born from a true DJ culture and a strength of building a set with a personal vision, the French DJ and producer has developed a unique ear and sound distinctly her own. It is this sound that has led Chloé to being one of the most sought after artists on the contemporary music scene. To file her under ‘girl dj’ would be to miss the point, or to make one that isn’t necessary. Chloé’s accomplishments speak for themselves.
