About this Event

The DNA of the French band The Geek x VRV originates from their Beat Tapes “Back To Old School” (BTOS). A tribute to Hip-Hop & Soul classics, it’s the beginning of the story that shows the talent of these two beatmakers. Their flagship track « It’s Because », released 3 years ago, comes directly from their first Beat Tape and lays the foundation for the The Geek x VRV’s sound today. Three volumes of BTOS brought them to a first EP, ORIGAMI, on Embrace Records, a Sold Out Maroquinerie (Paris), 2 USA tours and French festivals in 2016. Finally, they presented their new live set up, with 360° video projection and a brass instrument section, in front of a Sold Out Gaîté Lyrique in January 2017. Like a liberating step back, this new tape definitively returns to their musical roots. On March 3rd, The Geek x VRV will present BTOS VOL. 4, a selection of 15 tracks that summarises the desire for authenticity and an old school sound.

Mixing samples and live instrumentation into a dynamic blend that sits somewhere between moody laid-back and swirling upbeat, Belgium-based producer/DJ Poldoore made his first mark on the music scene in 2013 with his debut album ‘The Day Off’. That same year he kicked off his first European tour, turning heads at major festivals such as Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival, Dour Festival and Tomorrowland, earning him a widespread and loyal fanbase. His follow-up album ‘The Day After’ saw the daylight in 2016, enjoying similar succes and confirming Poldoore’s organic, contagious sound. Since then, he has crafted several singles and EP’s on international labels such as Chinese Man Records, Cold Busted, Darker Than Wax, Lowtemp and Nowadays Records, next to remixes for established artists such as Selah Sue, Talib Kweli, Wax Tailor and Stones Throw's Declaime.
