Astronauts for the night :
Born of a meeting between two electronic music lovers for who digging old discs to hurt their back is a real passion, the duo Lumbago is formed in 2015. In the process they create their own label of the same name. The music played by the duo is hybrid and complex, drawing as much in Acid house as in techno, breakbeat or garage, keeping this certain minimalist and futuristic side. Lumbago regularly organizes events in which they have the opportunity to share the decks with plenty of different DJs, showcasing themselves, thus offering varied and fine sets. That openness spirit has permit them to carve out a solid reputation and consequently make Lumbago one of the most talentend duo in Lyon’s underground scene. Being DJs and non-producers, the founders want their label to reflect their collection and their mix, rich and composed of multiple influences. Some new talents and renowned artists such as 100Hz, Rufus or Tom Joyce to name a few, have had the opportunity to be released on their imprint. The success of these releases have helped make Lumbago Records a musthave label in the French underground scene, and the best is coming…
