French foie gras market robust despite avian flu, NYC ban and veganism | AFP

France’s foie gras market is strong despite the city of New York’s recent decision to ban the controversial delicacy, which is made from the livers of force-fed ducks and geese. Producers say access to the US market was already barred by sanitary rules. The market has also recovered after production was decimated by avian flu in 2016 and 2017. According to CIFOG, France produced 18,000 tones of foie gras in 2018 and should match this in 2019.

The Caracal Project – Balazuc

Buy / Stream (release 31st Oct): https://fanlink.to/Homegrown_EP

No stranger to the Nëu Music label The Caracal Project aka Félix Burnod is back once more. This time around the French producer comes with a fully fledged 4 track EP, breaking the usual mould for the Nëu Music ethos.
Watch out for the click clacks found on ‘Bogy’, the wild and soon to be recognisable swung guitar sonics of ‘Charmes’ and the deep techno driven vibes on the insta-likeable ‘Cheylard’ (which has an incredible 130 BPM breakdown mid way through).
The Homegrown EP is the perfect way to celebrate Nëu Music’s tenth instalment.
