Andrea Mancini (alias Cleveland), laureate of the Residence at the Cité internationale des Arts in Paris is gearing up to release his forthcoming, EP, Golem, via Kalahari Oyster Cult. After a maiden incursion in 2020, Luxembourg’s boldest club explorer will drop the four-track EP on September 15, including a remix from fellow KOC affiliate, Junes.

The new form of partnership between the Cité internationale des arts, the Ministry of Culture and Fonds culturel national also makes it possible to offer in 2021 a unique residency format where Cleveland will benefit from support tailored to his project within the multidisciplinary, international and intergenerational community of artists in residence at the Cité internationale des arts in Paris.

The jury, made up of Vincent Gonzalvez and François Tiger (Cité internationale des arts, Paris) Jeff Weber (resident artist in 2020), Christian Mosar (frEsch asbl) and Florence Martin (United Instruments of Lucilin) ​​was delighted with the high quality of the proposed files and decided to allocate the residence to Cleveland. The relevance of the Cleveland project and the need for the Parisian cultural and institutional environment seemed particularly favorable for the development of this project.

A Brussels-based producer, born in Luxembourg to an Italian family, Cleveland has been a staple element of high-profile labels such as John Talabot’s Hivern Discs, the Californian ESP Institute, and now Kalahari Oyster Cult. The jury is convinced that this residency will give Cleveland the opportunity to establish new links with French professionals in the field and will be an important and influential step in an already international career.
