Founded in 2017, the Toulouse-based collective ‘Visages’ were brought together by several years of friendship and a shared love of event management (Dusk DNB) in their hometown.
The 4 piece assemble consists of Valentin, Etienne, Tom and Kévin. Each member bring their own area of expertise and point of view, geling together perfectly.
Their musical influences are very diverse, from Hip Hop to Rock, from Reggae to Ambient, This is reflected in their productions with a wide range of diversity, alternating between soulful drum and bass and deep dubstep.
2018 saw the release of their first EP on the French label ‘Impact Music’ which immediately captivated the bass music community. Subsequently, they quickly went on to release music with the respected labels Flexout Audio and Dispatch Recordings.
Catching the attention of highly influential producer and DJ Alix Perez, 2019 saw them join his imprint 1985 Music collaborating with Hyroglifics and Monty. Cementing their place on the label, they later went onto release their ‘About You’ EP which paved the way for what was to come from the 4 piece collective.
Like many producers, when the pandemic took hold of the world they found themselves in the studio more than ever – working on new music and running live streams to reach a worldwide audience. Shortly after this, they presented ‘Dark Guru EP’ in 2021 which received heavy support and high praise throughout the scene. Celebrating the success of this EP and the world reopening, Visages travelled acrocess Europe performing their music to their masses.
Later that year saw the release of ‘Hardware’ a collaboration with Monty, Strategy & Pav4n which boosted their limelight even more. This track also made it on to the official soundtrack for the EASports FIFA game – which later went on to be the biggest selling video game in the world during 2022. This exposure yet again pushed Visages to the masses and to brand new audiences.
2022 was one of the most pivotal years for the collective as they released more music than ever and toured around New Zealand and Europe with label head honcha Alix Perez.
With the release of ‘Hagakure EP’, the world finally got their hands on ‘Lunar Eclipse’ arguably one their biggest tunes of the year which picked up a nomination at the Drum & Bass Arena Awards 2022 – despite being 50% 140 BPM. Ending the year with a band, they presented their debut mini-LP in the form of ‘From Lead To Gold’ with all tracks topping the Beatport chart for a month, it’s no wonder they went on to be the biggest selling 140 / Deep Dubstep artist of the year on the platform.
Looking ahead, Visages are armed with an array of new music and club and festival bookings across the world and they are showing absolutely no sign of slowing down.
