session #102 – Deheb (Nepetalakton series)
Airing on our sessions, the Nepetalakton series is back with the Nantes-based hip-hop, soul & funk composer and beatmaker Deheb! Mixed during the lockdown period, Deheb offers on our show a breathtaking ode to our island’s jazz festival with carefully selected pieces of the genre we’re celebrating!
Deheb has worked with some of the world’s best french hip hop dancers, with the likes of Iron Mike and Junior from the Wanted Crew. He also got recognised and encouraged by artists such as Pharoahe Monch or DJ Spinna, and at this time he has opened for Jazzy Jeff and DJ Premier. Deheb also regularly collaborates with the founder of Stereophonk Label, also known as a multitalented artist, Marrrtin as the funky combo «Funky Bijou», with endeavours of theirs extending in producing funk breaks and breakdance soundtracks for events like Red bull BC One since Moscow in 2011.
Wearing his bold love for beat-making and jazz on his sleeve, heads up for Deheb’s upcoming jazz-inspired EPs, and also some beat-fuelled LPs with Funky Bijou on Stereophonk! In the meanwhile, let yourself be immersed into his exclusive mix on the Nepetalakton series for the MAMA JAZ Festival on our sessïons!
