The dynamic duo of AM & Shawn Lee who will be releasing their 2nd LP entitled La Musique Numerique on PTV Records this May and touring North and South America in support of the release starting in June.
These two multi-talented musicians have traversed the globe, both individually and collectively, performing with artists the likes of AIR, Phoenix, Sigur Ros, Caetano Veloso, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Bonnie Prince Billy while working in the studio with Coldcut, Darondo, Greyboy, Money Mark and more.
On La Musique Numerique, the band draws heavily from late 70s French library, 80s Italo Disco and Sleng Tend dancehall riddims, often employing the very same instrumentation and recording processes used in these original monumental sounds. The result is an immediately recognizable, charming and funky display of jams that call to mind latter era Clash, Sly & Robbie, Sade, and Grace Jones... all sounds we know and love. It's electro pop with a crate digger's touch.
