EXCLUSIVE: French duo Grand Soleil reveal refreshing new track ‘Kerbal Filter (Homeworked)’

Today, French DJ duo/production brothers Grand Soleil revel their brilliantly refreshing new track ‘Kerbal Filter (Homeworked)’. It is taken from the new Club Nowadays, Vol. 1 compilation out this June via cult French label Nowadays Records and features exclusive tracks by Chien Méchant, Grand Soleil, La Fine Equipe, Phantom Traffic, Fulgeance, Trifouille1er and Ténéré.

Blurring the lines of colourful old school house, funk, bass, disco with delicious nods to French touch, Grand Soleil have crafted a floor filler splattered with bass, imagination and melody!
They say: “It’s a track that sounds very French Touch like. We used a very round and funky bass line, and used some Daft Punk references (the crowd from “Révolution 909”, the noise from the ship in “Digital Love”, and the TB303 of “Da Funk” – hence the annotation “Homeworked”)”.

In almost 10 years, Nowadays has never strayed away from its initial goal made very clear by its founders Ugo de Angelis (aka oOgo) and Vincent Leibovtiz (aka Chomsky): to create a collaborative space between artists – regardless of which shelf they are on at the record store.

Nowadays Records’ catalog is aligned with the eclectic tastes of its founders, with productions ranging from trip-hop, house to proper dance anthems, but always keeping electronic music at its core.

The music label has always worked on multiple concepts to be able to bring its ideas and tastes directly to the stage. It started with the Nowadays Parties (live performances by the label’s artists) and kept going with a brand new concept called “Club Nowadays” which was created in 2020, just before the Covid-19 pandemic hit, and that first started via streaming.

As concerts came back and clubs started to reopen, the label officially launched its events activity. And for the occasion, Nowadays is presenting us with a brand new visual identity embodied by the Greek god Kairos that symbolizes the present, the right time. Nowadays is making it very clear about wanting to throw “the parties we would like to go to”, as perfectly summarized by Ugo de Angelis. Clubbing nights with DJ sets from artists of the label and others. So the whole crew will hit the road all over France starting spring, with the goal of making people dance thanks to its well established artists (Fakear, La Fine Equipe) but also through some newcomers (Grand Soleil, Ténéré, Jeff The Fool, Devoted, Phantom Traffic etc…).
