Bristol (FR), A38 Ship Budapest, 28 May
Marc Collin founder of Nouvelle Vague after a decade of success started a new project, in which instead of the new wave of the eighties he focuses on the nineties. As it turns out from the name Bristol, he dedicates it to the greatest trip-hop legends, like Massive Attack, Tricky, Portishead and Morcheeba, and gives them a new life mingled with elegant cool jazz and the moods of the films from the sixties. The first Budapest concert of the Nouvelle Vague was on the Ship, so logically Bristol will present its music at ours as well.

Bristol (FR)

Massive Attack 1991, like a UFO coming from nowhere, invented a genre later called trip hop with its « Blue Line » record. A collective, « The Wild Bunch » mixed dub, hip hop, soul and jazz, using a revolutionary instrument the « S series Akai » sampler.

This record was a shock. A bomb that spread over a whole generation. Influenced by this new sound, young musicians bought samplers and created bands. DYI again, just like the punk generation.

A rebound in musical history worth exploring. Trip hop artists just like the punks did not study music at school, they just had loads to say.

They used their record collections, their samplers and synthesizers to rap and dub, and changed the face of sound production.

Some of those songs became classics, like Massive Attack’s « Safe from harm » Tricky’s « Overcome », Neneh Cherry’s « Woman » and of course Portishead’s « Glory box ».

So Trip Hop was born in Bristol… a story that has started in the 80’s with the pioneers Mark Stewart, Smith and Mighty and of course Neneh Cherry/Cameron McVey. But the sound spread with the british bands Morcheeba, Archive, Lamb and later Goldfrapp and Zero 7.

Jay-Jay Johanson from Sweden used it, Hooverphonic from Belgium, Kid Loco from France, Kruder & Dorfmeister in Germany, Thievery Corporation in USA.

Now, try to imagine those 90’s songs the way they could have been recorded as movie soundtracks from the 60’s… You can’t? Marc Collin, producer of the Nouvelle Vague project has done it for you.

The first single of Bristol wil be released this summer 2014 and the album early next year, coming with an original documentary that will explain the journey from Paris to Bristol, plus, an art exhibition.
