LATITUDE 45

Galant Records, Mediatone, High-lo (Totaal Rez‘s hip hop brand) and Hydrophonik (Quebec label sub-branch of Indica Records) initiate the Latitude 45 project: the transatlantic rap mixtape.

This unique creative project has created an artistic connection between the cultures of Lyon and Montreal, having the Francophonie in common.

With Latitude 45, hip-hop breaks down borders. Latitude 45 creates an emulation between all the actors who participate in the effervescence and culture of their territory. Co-creation and co-production at all levels to promote local talents from Lyon and Montreal and contribute to the international artistic influence of these two cities. The alchemy works thanks to the energy and talent of local artists, whether they are producers, singers or rappers.

The first extract is already available on all platforms. For the Sacrifices track, three artists open the ball: L.Teez, an authentic rapper from Montreal, Cyrious, a young emerging rapper from Lyon, and Vax1, a Lyon producer who needs no introduction. This fine mixture then gives us a single with well-marked universes, which illustrates the identity of the crossing of the two cities Lyon and Montreal. L.Teez, poses his rap by approaching a very jazz style, which the French scene rarely offers. Cyrious brings his freshness and his inspirations from the 90s of French rap, with texts worked in substance and form. The bridge between these two universes is made thanks to the atmospheric production of Vax 1, which he embellishes with very soulful notes.

The first volume of the EP is to be discovered on May 11 with three new titles with Dope GNG, Twani, Ebony’T, QuietMike, David Campana, Tejdeen and Majosty. And a second volume is planned for fall 2022.
