Le Bon Beat is back on Soas Radio! Back with a particularly moody vibe it has to be said. Many of the tracks we are featuring this week have this certain je-ne-sais-quoi. A mix of melancholy and unstoppable energy that had somewhat been less present in hiphop over the past few years. All the artists we are showcasing tonight are true poets as well as incredible technicians of the rhyme. The topics they touch are profound, personal and intimate. The productions supporting them are, as usual on Le Bon Beat, sure to get you hooked up. Deep bass, irresistible jazz swings and mysterious samples await. We hope you’ll enjoy the show!

Don’t forget you can download all of previous shows as podcasts on iTunes, and to give us a like on our Facebook page www.facebook.com/lebonbeat for more news, updates about our upcoming live events and tremendous music!

Nearly all of the albums we’ve been playing on this show have been released over the past two years, most of the time auto-produced and without the support of any major company or record label. Those are works of love, passion and dedication, a small gesture towards them can go a long way.

Thanks to you all for tuning in.

Peace out and we’ll see you soon.

This episode has been conceived as a pure joy ride for all hiphop music lovers.

As this might be our last episode for a little while, we had to dig deep and deliver the best, trying to showcase the multiple facets of the french hiphop scene, as it has been custom with Le Bon Beat.

So we are starting this show with instropective and socially conscious lyrics and beats, before drifting towards the core of the hiphop movement and some irresistible tunes, before finishing on a very chilled out note and faring you goodbye…for now.

Thanks to everyone who supported the show and came down to our Le Bon Beat Live Music and Painting nights. We will be around soon, keep sharing our Facebook Page and blog, www.lebonbeat.wordpress.com, follow us on Twitter, and download the podcasts for free on iTunes for all our previous episodes.

Merci a tous!

LE BON BEAT – Episode 6

LISTEN TO IT HERE: http://soasradio.org/content/le-bon-beat-6



In the light of the recent events in Mali and the military involvement of France there, Le Bon Beat invites you on its 6th edition to explore the relations post-colonialism between France and Africa through the eyes of the french rappers, most of them being sons of immigrants of the 2nd or 3rd generation. This is a show probably more socially and politically conscious than what you’ve been used to, as this social consciousness has been a determining factor of French HipHop since it started its rise in the late 80’s. A show about immigration then, identity and integration, featuring strong beats and lyrics which are sure to capture your interest.

Also worthy of note, this show is the first one to feature live Flute-over-Beats interludes by none other than Drew Le Prod our producer. A little taste of what you can expect at our Le Bon Beat events and nights!
Shout out to excellent french producer “DJ Logilo” too, as we have been using many of his instrumentals as backgrounds for the show. You can find plenty of his work here >> http://www.logilo.com/

Make sure you like and share the show to help keep on going, and check our FB page and blog:


There are plenty more infos and tracks up there about the artists we play, new french HH releases, and we will start soon to add links to lyrics of the tracks we play so you can have a more in depth understanding of the artists messages and concerns.

Finally, make sure you watch this space for updates on the Le Bon Beat Live Nights that we will be bringing to you at The Three Compasses in Dalston from Thursday February 28th, and the Hip Hop U Don’t Stop nights that we host alongside our friends of The Soul Partizan Family Tree at The Hoxton White Horse in Shoreditch every month.

Thanks for Listening, Keep your Heads Bobbin’ and Thinkin’

Peace Out!

Drew Le Producer & The Man From Montpellier
