Zèbres Records is back celebrating Plein Soleil’s new release blending his polyrhythmic, ambient and dub aspirations. Through his solo project, Jonathan Grandcollot —also part of Société Etrange, Pan Pan Pan and supergroup Omertà— explores his broad DIY instrumentation, working his percussions towards a dub, fourth-world space, ruling out every "cliché associated with the genre, instead generously filling this 12" with mesmerizing agitation. "UV" will be out in September 2021, distributed by Glasgow’s Rubadub & Crevette Records.
"U.V." by Plein Soleil,
12", mini-album (29mins), 45rpm on black vinyl
Full color-printed sleeves, Stamped Label, Silk-screened Cover
Edition of 500
Out on September 14th of 2021.
Zèbres was founded in 2017, in Lyon (France), by Frère Zèbre, also responsible for the creation of the now Lyon, Paris and Brussels-based LYL webradio, and Lyon’s Bistrot Senior. This flexible, loose entity is now collective: long time partner in design Félicité Landrivon aka La Brigade Cynophile is in, as well as Raymonde who impulsed the label with his first release (and is also founder of the experimental platform Mus Joutra), and finally by Tom Chaussette, tall, dark shade working in the background.
No aim, no tempo, no plans. It’s been four years since our first release, and there’ll be maybe another decade to the next, maybe not. We’ll probably release more with greater-Lyon artists, maybe beyond. Maybe we’ll keep on publishing the tribal-ish, dub-ish, experimental-ish, DIY-100% cuts, perhaps not. We’ll most certainly stay focused on contemporary musicians, yet we dig different eras, so again, we won’t say. One thing is for (almost) sure though: we’ll keep the DIY ethics integral.
