Black Zone Myth Chant is a project of Afrocentric psychedelia and hypnotic footwork by psych-drone artist High Wolf.
Sometimes described as “Sun Ra meets Dj Screw”, various Black Zone Myth Chant releases have been released on Low Jack’s label Editions Gravats, including Mane Thecel Phares (ranked 33 in the 2015 albums of the year Boomkat’s charts). The story of the project starts in 2011. Back from the US where he spent some time touring, hanging out with friends and listening to DJ Screw, High Wolf sat down in his studio and, without any plan, recorded Straight Cassette within a couple of days. It was kind of a weird mix of free jazz influences, pitched-down vocals and ambient synthscapes – this first album came out on tape on High Wolf’s DIY label Winged Sun. Only a few copies of the debut recording were produced and there was no promotion; it was meant for the tape to be ignored and forgotten. But for some reason it slowly gained quite an obscure reputation which lead to a vinyl reissue on the French label Laitbac in 2014. Since then, it’s been more widely rediscovered, and with perfect timing: after thinking Black Zone Myth Chant was the buried project of a sole record, High Wolf, under the influence of Editions Gravats owners Low Jack & Jean Carval, had started to work on a follow up. The said album came out in 2015, entitled Mane, Thecel, Phares. Successfully received both by the press and the audience, it was time for Black Zone Myth Chant to make his live debut. Black Zone Myth Chant kept touring Europe in 2016, booked by clubs as well as by festivals or DIY experimental venues. The live set was developed rather differently from the record but remained true to its spirit: complex but physical drum beats, modular synth experimentation, airy melodies and his deep signature vocals. 2017 shall see the release of new records. A new LP on Editions Gravats first, then later a 12″ on Shelter Press. When the time is right. When the planets are properly aligned. (Shape)


Chicaloyoh is the project of Alice Dourlen. Started in 2011, it has never stopped evolving, according to her desires and encounters. Gradually abandoning the folksy territories of her beginnings, she has turned towards atmospheres inspired by her travels and her dreams, while keeping the dreamlike narration that has always been her trademark. Minimalist in the space it leaves to the imagination, psychedelic in the unusual territories it takes the listener to, her music is a strange setting for countless delusions about the flesh, madness and loss of self. Recordings of street noises, metallic objects whose grazes and shocks are amplified, synthetic sounds that throw you out of your comfort zone, abandoned vocals… these are the tools Chicaloyoh uses to draw you into her twisted reverie. His concerts are more like an inclusive performance, at the limits of music, literature and theatre. A gentle unease or a healthy madness.
