Little Richard was the stage name adopted by Richard Wayne Penniman, a gospel and rhythm & blues singer who was also a rocker, a homosexual, a Seventh Day Adventist, and an extraordinary personality. He invented one of the most emblematic battle cries to ever rouse a generation of young people confronting a much-needed new world... and rock ’n’ roll. The cry was a lyric from Tutti Frutti that went “A Wop Bop A Loo Bop A Lop Bam Boom!” Just one look at this album’s titles tells you all you need to know about the importance that this man represents in Fifties’ music history. In addition to Tutti Frutti you can find Long Tall Sally, Lucille and Good Golly Miss Molly, to name only a few. Nobody can imagine what Rock ’n’ Roll would have been without Little Richard. He was a mighty inspiration for such major artists as Prince and The Rolling Stones, and he fully deserves his place at the top of the pyramid that today we call “the influencers”.
Ohbliv is a very talented producer and DJ from Richmond, Virginia. He’s an instrumental genius and an innovative force in the ever-changing music industry. After more than 30 cassettes, various side projects and a radio show that has been on the air for nearly a decade, Ohbliv fans know his calling cards: a telepathic ear for samples, devastating harmonics and mind-shaking drums.
Kiddy Smile is a French artist, producer and disc jockey. He is notably known for his promotion of the New York voguing movement in the Parisian scene as well as for his LGBT activism. Catapulted to the scene by Beth Ditto, Kiddy Smile seeks to spread retro in his musicality. Deeply influenced by the gloomy and lazy feel of 90's house music and the fabulous legacy of the ballroom scene, he has performed live alongside Hercules & Love Affair and The Gossip.
"With this album, I wanted to refocus on myself, on my desires and priorities, on my dreams and my utopias, to be at peace with myself in order to be more open with people. So that this inner paradise becomes real on the outside," explains the singer. This album made before the lockdown sounds like a "New Start" for the artist, she doesn't hesitate to give herself, to talk about rebirth, letting go and reinvention, like the opening track, the hypnotizing "Faire".
