First Reviews

Extra groovy music to make the lunacy be all nicely balanced out!” Yeah I know It sucks (U.K.)

“A pilotless journey in fact, into the all-consuming matrix, an augur alarm before it’s all too late” Monolith Cocktail (U.K.)

“Manu “funk Sinatra” Louis, (…) travel around the world with a double goal in mind: make his listeners thinking and dancing until they die  Jazz Around (Bel)

“If you’re in the mood for something fresh, a bit off-balanced and with personality disorder, but which sounds like the author perfectly knows what he’s doing, then you should give “Cream Parade” a chance” Laboratorium Muzycznych Fuzji (Pol)

“Funky, funny and now and then a little churned up. Like a dignified evening in the Berlin nightlife” CURT (Deu)

“Sometimes, the beauty of art lies within the things you can’t grip or comprehend. Sometimes, music which plays with both familiar elements and progressive, experimental ideas can reach this special beauty with the tensions those two contrasts provide. It’s kind of a struggle sometimes, but if the artist can strike the right balance, there is symbiosis to achieve. Belgian-born and now Berlin-resident Manu Louis is such an artist. ”  Everything is noise (U.K.)

“An album of such density that it bridges the gap between thought provoking and accessible”  Dancing About Architechture (U.K.)

“A wonderful album to listen to full of swinging music, which is a mix of jazz, electro and dance”  New Underground Music (Bel)

New mix at Kiosk Radio

Last tuesday, I spent one hour at the marvelous Kiosk radio in Brussels, playing a selection of tracks around Cream Parade (featuring Gelbart, Chris Imler, Nancarrow, N.M.O…) You can listen to the mix here

Internet’s Farewell new music video

by Systaime, premiere today in Everything is Noise

Cream Parade, out on Igloo Rec.

Cream Parade is a disoriented walk through Experimental Dance Pop (and incidentally my masterpiece). It was magistrally mixed by Dirk Dresselhaus and mastered by Rashad Becker. It features a great international cast of musicians :

Heidi Heidelberg : Vocals
Adi Gelbart : Organ
Greg Tirtiaux : Saxophone
Yann Lecollaire : Clarinet
Nyllo Canela : Percussion

And the artwork was made by Arnau Pascual Ledesma (who also co-directed the music video for “Internet”)

Out on IGLOO RECORDS in CD/LP/Digital. You can order it here. For press inquiry, please check the contact page
