This band gives positive vibrations, stepping outside the French rap box. The alchemy between the intruments and the main rapper/DJ/band leader 20Syl, results in a appreciable coherence.
The lineup includes muscians Matthieu Lelièvre (on fender rhodes) Hevré Gogard (on bass), and Antoine Saint-Jean (on drums) with DJ Greem and 20Syl (MC), both members of C2C, the DJ crew, 2003-to-2006 DMC World DJ Team Championships winner.
