Statement

Montreal based alternative electronic visual band, TANUKI project, a sexy dark sound, mixing mesmerizing vocals, hypnotic synth-bass lines and powerful beats with colorful video projections. Their sound and visuals create a world you can feel in your brain and body – music that is art you can breath in. This band must be experienced live to truly catch and feel the artistic and stroboscopic trance they create.

Coming from

French-born Legyl and Nady settled down in creative and artistic Montreal in 2007 where they self-produced the debut album PLAYGROUND FOR EVERYONE, released august 2010 with Aquarius Records/DONALD K DONALD GROUP.

The stage

Since 2009, they toured Canada at CANADIAN MUSIC WEEK, [FAT] Toronto Alternative Art and Fashion week, MONTREAL MODE AND DESIGN FESTIVAL, showcases at Toronto Indie Week, COCA central regional conference and MEG festival.Fall 2011, they release a new EP called  ONE BY ONE, perform a TOKYO TOUR during the JAPAN MUSIC WEEK.

Independence for creation

They decided to go independent and release their second album in october 2012,  FAR FROM THE CITY LIGHTS, with their own diy label GO WITH THE FLOW during a special multimedia performance at Montreal Contemporary Arts Museum. Feeding on their professional experience in the fields of multimedia, web and graphic arts, they like to explore and collaborate to remain creative: they composed the original soundtrack of the viral 3D animation short movie I, Pet Goat II. Some forthcoming collaborations are to be announced with the creative Steambot Studios.

TRACE

TRACE is their third album to be released in 2015 - 2016 starting with an EP, some videos and shows. Trace is the fruit of a collaboration with singer Mic Dainjah and the black novels writer André Marois. A «multimedia concept» mixing videos, music, songs and a short film. The music is a mad electro Caribbean culture clash, some electronic soul... it's like a sound clash but everybody wins.

Tanuki soundsystem

The soundsystem version started early 2016 with a simple but irresistible recipe: 2 humans, 10 machines, 125bpm. Electronic audio video live performance with analog synths, a drum machine and a voice with effects. Some energizing dirty house A/V live act they’re taking on tour to Japan in spring 2017.

More to come in 2017

A secret project is being crafted with new exciting collaborations.. To be revealed soon !
