Created in 2005, Trevor & Lisa is a Parisian funk band founded by Sébastien Despicht (guitars, talk box) and Mikael Prignot (programming). With Stéphane Ugolini (keyboards) who joined them later on, they formed the core production trio of the group. Built for live shows, Trevor & Lisa have toured the Parisian gigs scenes, appearing on numerous radio shows (Nova, Generations, Le Mouv) and TV shows (France 4). Additionally, they developed several collaborations, such as with famous soul diva Gwen McCrae (as her backing band) and with French singer Mounam (from The Dynamics) on the What Needs Mama single. Meanwhile, Trevor & Lisa also produced two punchy 7" singles released on Favorite Recordings. This album is filled with the same contagious energy they gave off on their previous records and live shows. Clap 'N' Hustle is a call to dance, filled by a deep groove and boosted with relentless breakbeats and percussion. With an ambitious production, this first album has involved many talented musicians and many guest singers such as Jehro, U.S. underground rappers Rita J, Raashan Ahmad, and Clyde King Rap (Real Fake MC), his long-time mate DJ Suspect (The Funk League) at turntables, and Julien Tekeyan on percussion. Clap 'n' Hustle features instrumentals spiced up with burning breaks, old-school rap influences, a taste of Californian blue-eyed soul, some talk-box and vocoder embellished with an incisive brass section, all of it punctuated with interludes made of finely-selected samples. Finally, Liza Rose and Yann Kesz have brought their personal touch for visuals, artwork, and videos.
