CMW Presents
Lisbon Lux Showcase

  • Radiant Baby

    Radiant Baby

    Ambient Electronica

    Born and raised in Montreal, Felix Mongeon, aka Radiant Baby brings back 80s flamboyance, re-actualizing new wave with playful synthpop melodies. R.B.’s visuals also draw from 80s inspiration, referencing pop art influences such as Keith Haring and the Memphis Movement.

    Radiant Baby has been making a name for himself in the Montreal scene for the last two years. Since his early beginnings, his rich and festive disco-pop production has won over fans and media alike. R.B. has shared the stage with world-renowned artists, such as Peaches, Róisín Murphy, and Yelle. He has also played at POP Montreal, Canadian Music Week, Fashion & Design Festival, Piknic Électronik, and Slut Island.

    Radiant Baby signed to Lisbon Lux Records (LLR) in 2016 and released his debut Ep “It’s My Party” on LLR in May 2017. He is currently working on his first full length, due to be released in 2018.

  • Bronswick

    Bronswick

    Electro-Techno

    The story of Bronswick begins in the summer of 2014, when Bertrand Pouyet crosses paths with Catherine Coutu while searching for a vocalist who could bring soul to his compositions. After a few experiments, Bertrand falls under the spell of Catherine’s charm and sensibility, qualities that lend a breath of fresh air to the project.

    Listening to Bronswick will no doubt evokes 80s franco influences such as Étienne Daho and Mylène Farmer, but the duo also channels the dark, mysterious energy of contemporary acts such as The Knife or The xx. This influence is heard on their first EP, Errances.

    After a notable performance at the M Pour Montréal festival, the duo launches their second EP, Chassés-Croisés (nominated for a GAMIQ prize), in early 2016. Acclaimed by several influential blogs (Exclaim!, Silent Shout, IX Daily) it’s first single to the top of the prestigious CBC Radio 3 chart, in addition of being mentioned as SOCAN’s Single Of The Week.

    Bronswick celebrates the end of a successful year with the release of the EP Comme La Mer Remix, an album for which the duo enrols Robert Robert, French Fox and Lafayette .

    Bronswick is currently working on a first full-length album, to be released in the fall of 2017.

  • Paupière

    Paupière

    Synth Pop

    Paupière is a glamorous and flamboyant young trio from Montreal, dripping with underground sensuality. Their new album, entirely in French, is filled with those little bittersweet tunes you just can't get out of your head; sensitive writing harnessed to serve the melody. A raw kind of poetry fitting in somewhere between Montreal's current psychedelic scene, and the French pop sound of the 1980s. Pop at once naïve and profound, lighthearted and powerful.  With only a 4-track EP from 2016 under their belt, Paupière has managed to carve themselves a spot as one of Quebec's major sonic discoveries, signing simultaneously with Lisbon Lux Records (Outside) in Canada, and Les Disques Entreprises (Sony Music) in Europe. The trio has already hit the stages of the Francofolies, FME, M for Montreal, as well as Bars en Trans in France, and will be playing at the upcoming Mama Festival in Paris. 

  • Le Couleur

    Le Couleur

    Synth Pop

    Le Couleur churns out electro-tropical synth-pop with a sensual twist, combining hints of sunshine with the musicality of words. The melodies and beats straddlemany genres, andhintat summer escape.The Montreal trio, consisting of Laurence Giroux-Do, Patrick Gosselin andSteeven Chouinard, deliver performances that are rich, organic and electronic (drums, percussion, synths, bass, guitar, vocals) and invariably and irresistibly get the audience on their feet.

    In 2013, Le Couleur signs to Lisbon Lux Records, a record label known for discovering new talent (Paupière, Radiant Baby, Das Mörtal, Fonkynson...). 

    The Voyage Love EP,  launched them on the international indie-pop scene. The record, mixed in New  York  by MGMT  collaborators French Horn Rebellion ended  up  on many end-of-year lists of best EPs.It becomes the band's calling card, especially because of "Femme", a hit that garnered nearly 4 million views on YouTube and nearly 850,000 plays on Spotify.

    In Fall 2016, they release P.O.P.(Pacific Ocean Park),a chic, electronic and voluptuous synth-pop album, mixed in Los Angeles by DFA Records sound engineer Eric Broucek, earning a spot on the 2017 Polaris Prize long list, and a nomination for "Pop Album of the Year" at the 2017 GAMIQ awards.A solid live set that never lets up has allowed Le Couleur to perform on the stages of Quebec's great  musical  events  (FrancoFolies,  Osheaga,  Festival  d’Été  de  Québec, FME,M for Montréal), as well as in Europe  (they caused a sensation at  the Inouïs du Printemps de Bourgesin France), in the United States and English Canada.

  • Beat Market

    Beat Market

    Electro-Techno

    Montreal’s EDM duo Beat Market has a huge edge on any aspiring DJ act: their wild, sweaty and crowded live shows incorporate a full drum kit, vintage keyboards and hypnotic lights, embodying that drive you could expect from any electro rock outfit. Beat Market's sound combines raw body techno and a classic vintage, romantic and futuristic feel, reminiscent of early Daft Punk and Vitalic.

    In 2014, Beat Market releases Red Magic, an award-nominated album mastered in London by Mike Marsh (Daft Punk, Chemical Brothers, Justice). The single Aviator 2000 gets a highly acclaimed video treatment, which is featured, on leading online portals such as High Snobiety.

    The duo's second full-length, Sun Machine, is released in 2015 via Lisbon Lux Records. Quickly celebrated by various critics, the LP is featured in various year-end reviews in addition of being nominated for a prestigious ADISQ award. The cinematographic music videos for Les Belles Années and Madonyx are received just as positively, garnering a viral amount of views on social media platforms.

    In 2016, Beat Market releases Sun Machine (Deluxe Edition), a new version of their critically acclaimed LP including new versions of four songs featuring vocalists with a distinctive style and personality. Featured on various influential blogs, these single quickly gain critical praises.
