"Help, we have created a Beast!" The need to Betty Bonifassi and Jean-Phi Goncalves have thought when they have been for the first time in the studio together. And what have fOr a Beast created them! A fabulous hermaphrodites, semi TripHop, half skirt that can detect in his musical genes Portishead, Massive Attack, but also Rage Against the Machine and gospel. The Beast has a slope to the dark side is unpredictable, a master of surprise and very powerful. There do not dither and snaps. Care is required!
Actually, the cooperation between the, 2004 for the title song of the animated film "Les Triplets of Belleville", Oscar-nominated singer Betty Bonifassi (DJ Champion, Triplets of Bellville) and hit producer Jean-Phi Goncalves (Lauryn Hill, Araine Moffat, Pierre Lapointe, Jean Pierre Ferland) from Montreal just an experiment. But when the two Canadians hoisted the regulator in their sound laboratory, it became clear something here musically click done. Jean-Phi Goncalves took over as a sound engineer and producer self-control over the regulator. "Our studio sessions had in fact what of a laboratory experiment. As researchers, we were looking, but did not know exactly what we would find. We continued until we had the unknown found. "
The two decided to get the Beast alive and share big draw. Jean-Phi entered for the project territory: "I had the first time in my life even a microphone in his face." His recordings should really only a musical sketch for a professional singer to be, the later the micro Apply should. But Betty Confident Jean-Phi itself to remain with the vocals. "Together our voices give wonderfully different layers." Musically the Beast wallows extensively in a pool of electronica, catchy hooks, soul and jazzy playfulness. There are ghostly choirs, glitchy electronica hovers over thick rock bass lines and dirty beats. The duo even calls this innate mixture "trip rock" or simply "Go To Hell Music".
In 2008, Betty Bonifassi and Jean-Phi Goncalves the Beast for the first time to an enthusiastic public. The press attested him the best live qualities of the current Canadian music scene - not bad for a newcomer act from the country of Arcade Fire, Broken Social Scene and Hot Hot Heat!

And you wonder: has the kitchen in there still open ". reported Ben Rayner by the renowned Toronto Star: "One of the most unusual, most original and darkest bad-ass albums of recent Canadian history. . And the plate that will Tricky deliver for 10 years "and the music blog popmatters.com cheered:" The music on Beast is so awesome that you really should not only focus on the lyrics themselves. But this is difficult, because there is such a wonderfully exciting chemistry between Gonvalves and Bonifassi. Hallelujah! ". No wonder that the first Canadian single from the album, immediately went through the ceiling and runtergalden in North America 375 000 times on iTunes was.
The Black Eyed Peas-esque "Out of Control" start Beast now in Europe. What a single! Goosebumps galore. Bonifassi rapt with charming French accent over ghostly backing vocals in dark apocalyptic images. And the fit perfectly to gloomy experimental sound of the duo with its apocalyptic synths and swirling guitar. "The pain is gone. The sun outshone. My youth is gone. The lights are on. The time is gone ", says" Out of Control ". When the end of the world with so much style and pop appeal comes, then everything is good!
At the end still good advice of Jean-Phi and Betty: "Do not mess with the Beast Mr. Hurricane. You're not coming for peace stop bringing the insane ". You've been warned!
