Listen to MIGUEL:
Over the last decade, Miguel’s established himself as one of R&B’s most sonic fabulists, a consummate artist unafraid to follow his impulses wherever they lead him. His fourth studio full- length, War & Leisure, is his most ambitious and stunning project yet, a perfect blend of forward-thinking production and melodic delights that more than embody the duality hinted at in the album’s title. This is Miguel fusing the two halves of his creative id—the restless experimentalist and the crowd-pleasing hitmaker that millions of fans adore—to reach a new peak in artistic achievement.
Following the mind-blowing and thoroughly sensual Wildheart in 2015, Miguel conceived War & Leisure’s twelve pop gems over the course of the last year and a half—a process that allowed him to find himself amidst the increasing chaos of the modern world. “It’s my best way of describing the now,” he explains when discussing the album’s yin-and-yang title, which reflects the music’s focus on the passion and pain of everyday life. “Anything that’s in my conscious world, and what’s feeding my subconscious—it’s all war and leisure.”

Since their first album in 1995, Los Amigos Invisibles have developed a sound based on the “gozadera” – an irresistible fusion of Latin rhythms with fiery funk and lounge music. The band got their first break when David Byrne (Talking Heads) discovered one of their albums by chance in a Manhattan record shop. He immediately called the band up in their native Venezuela and soon after, signed them to his label: Luaka Bop. Byrne opened doors for the band across the globe and Los Amigos Invisibles soon became an international touring machine.
Los Amigos Invisibles moved to New York City from their hometown of Caracas in 2001 and entrenched themselves in the local scene. With their electrifying live show, the group began building a considerable fan-base across the U.S. collaborating with artists such as Louie Vega (Masters At Work), Dimitri From Paris, Natalia Lafourcade, Cachorro López and Jorge Gonzalez, among others. Los Amigos Invisibles were able to establish themselves in the international dance music scene and expand their sound, while raking in Grammy nominations year after year and performing all over the globe as well as on television shows like The Jimmy Kimmel Show.
In the last few years, they have established their own record label – Gozadera Records – and have tightened their hooks and focused their songs, recording their most accessible work yet.
Los Amigos Invisibles have toured in over 60 countries. They’re latest release, ‘Commercial,’ was awarded a Latin GRAMMY for “Best Alternative Album”; the band’s fifth-career GRAMMY Nomination.
Following their Grammy win, 2010 saw festival appearances and shows throughout the United States, Latin America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
In 2011, the band released Not So Commercial, an EP of outtakes from the Commercial album. This album was a nominee for the Grammy Award for Best Latin Pop, Rock or Urban Album in 2012.
In April 2013, Repeat After Me was released. This album received a Grammy nomination in the category of “Best Latin Alternative Album” and a Latin Grammy in the category of “Best Alternative Album”, “Song of the year” and “Best Cover”.
In 2014, the band is releasing a greatest hits compilation recorded live in Mexico City with acoustic versions of some of their most famous songs with featurings from some of the patins scene ́s finest.
Los Amigos Invisibles are:
Mauricio Arcas: Percussion
Julio Briceño: Vocals
Juan Manuel Roura: Drums
José Rafael Torres: Bass

Dumpstaphunk stands out among New Orleans’ best as one of the funkiest bands to ever arise from the Crescent City. Born on the Jazz & Heritage Festival stage, and descended from Neville family bloodlines, these soldiers of funk ignite a deep, gritty groove that dares listeners not to move. Their performances combine ingenious musicianship and complex funk and jazz arrangements with soulful melodies that are simple enough for anyone to enjoy. In Big Easy tradition, dueling baselines from Tony Hall and Nick Daniels III set off one of the dirtiest rhythm sections on the planet, while Ivan Neville lights up the Hammond B3 keys and cousin Ian Neville’s funky guitar riffs send the groove into overdrive. The band recently welcomed their newest member, Alvin Ford Jr. to the quintet, a New Orleans born and raised powerhouse drummer. Dumpstaphunk tosses around lead vocals and four-part harmonies the way Sly & the Family Stone did, but with three studio albums under their belt, Dumpstaphunk stands on the merit of their own material. Songs like “Dancin’ To The Truth” off their latest record, Dirty Word (July 30, 2013, Louisiana Red Hot Records), offer an escape into the funky sublime, sharing the true spirit of New Orleans with every note.
