Lilea Narrative was first noticed at the 2006 edition of the Nordik Impakt Festival, then in 2007 at the Transmusicales Rennes Festival and was selected as new talent in the 2008 Printemps de Bourges Festival.The critics were uninamous in acclaiming the first album "nouvelle chair" (new flesh) rapidly giving Lilea Narrative a place of choice on the electro hip-hop scene and more than a hundred concerts throughout western and eastern europe.
The new album "echantillodrome" confirms Lilea Narrative's skills as an deamnding and open producer, injecting freshness and energy into his precise rhythmic and melodic constrcutions. He performs electro hip hop in inspired and lifefull way and adds some freshness to the style with his ability for breaks, cuts, scratches and melodies which his music stand out.
The overall sound and percussive use of scratching clearly make "echantillodrome" a hip-hop album, but the rythmical work gives also a strong electronic vibe to the album which includes powerful featurings : Napoleon maddox (prolific and yet brilliant founder of the band "Is What?" (Cincinnati) and of the "Phat Jam" project with Archie Shepp) Perseph One (A houston-based MC who shared stages with bands like Aesop rock or C-Rayz Walz)
