mardi 9 mars 2010
AbraxXxas and I.O.T Records are coming back, just a year after the release of the album « Elektron(s) ». The Marseille « electronic music factory » hasn’t stand idle. « Elektron[s] Remix » is an encounter between raw rap and electronic music, pushing forward the boundaries of sonic admixture, composed by a multiple-choice music producers.
Following the original version, where various composers worked on the productions, leaving the space to our hip-hopatom to fuse over with his substantial voice. A team of new producers have been on a mission to create from scratch new tracks, keeping AbraxXxas accapelas andBPM from the original album.
« Elektrons V2 » is a promenade between dubstep and electronica, flirting from time to time with many electro influences.
Abraxxxas is without doubt the black sheep of the French hip-hop scene. He likes to overlap various atmospheres in order to expend his universe…question of survival!
For this second project around Elektron[S], this time only available in digital the producers are:
Morganistic, Dragongaz (Interlope), Stalk, Mandibull (Caterva), Rimshot (Interlope) Dead Clown, Niveau 0, L’œuf raide, Mr Sushisooshamp, Automat, Brainbreakazz, Taös, Unstatic, Enkô, The Space Invaders.
At first, Morganistic is just an excuse set up by two electronic music freaks in order to spend hours throwing at each other’s heavy basslines on various electro beats.
Assuming that the passion has taken over, it results from it a fixation to produce high quality sounds mixing hip-hop and neurofunk styles….for a very efficient effect.
Dragongaz released his first vynil in 96 (Psaîzone-label chronobrain (n°00)), followed by several tracks released on No-Tek records and start up in 97 a live electronic duo named Sounds Like Pistols (breakbeat-rock). In 99, Interlope duo live act started with his friend Rimshot, they now have released 3 albums, 7 maxis, 1 live cd "chip jockey" and 400 gigs since Y2K.
Exploring numerous tone and influences, Stalk is an electronic journey, driving himself to his electronica daydream, implemented by post rock atmosphere and the maze of drone and concrete music.
(Aka Fred Ficus) is the other half of the duo Caterva whom opened the path to dubstep in France with the label SensInverse. Solo, Manndibul likes to blend hip-hop, electro crunk and psyche jazz together, to create a « Low beat » sound. The embodied music approach is leading us to integrate artistic expression and contemporary technology.
Rhimshot is with Dragongaz part of the duo Interlope, a break beat, hip-hop and drum’n’bass dance floor wrecker.
Led by experimentation and improvisation, this live formula is settling around 140BPM, fitting in the picture melodies oscillating between rave circa 92, nu break basslines and a few electroclash gimmicks.
Through the years he has collaborated with many music entities such as Jamalski, High Tone, Laurent de Wilde to only name a few.
Influenced by thick beats, hip-hop and neurofunk wobbly basslines, DeadClown has been producing drum’n’bass since 2007. He is an active member of « 4astres », a collective who has been setting up parties for the last 2 years.
7- NIVEAU ZERO
2009 has been a productive year for Niveau Zero; he had releases on labels such as Exressillon, Destpub and Indus Frenchy. He is currently working on a new album on Ad Noiseam, which will be out in spring 2010.
8- L’Oeuf Raide
Signed since 2001 on the French label Jarring Effect, l’OeufRaide is oscillating between abstract hip-hop, breakbeat and drum’n’bass, mixing those multiple sonic influences according to the mood of the moment. L’OeufRaide has many LP’s and 3 albums under its belt, and has been touring all over France without any intention of stopping it!
The release of their next album “Berlin Eggsile” will be out in 2010.
Coming from the beakcore / ragga scene and electro hip-hop, he is an active member of the independent Toulouse based label “Kurva.records”.
He is playing live, juggling between his laptop and some incisive scratchs that are meticulously deconstructed.
Introduce to acid, acid core and hardcore by the mythic Spiral Tribe in the early 90’s, he started his DJ career in 95 as Tha’Natur, and became known as Automat straight after his first prestation at Astropolis festival in 97.He has since, been noticed by the big man himself, Richard D James (Aphex Twin) for his ability to juxtapose electro and techno soundswith skills and dexterity.
Wearing out his soles on dance floors across the European free party scène for a long period,Unstatic took shape at the beginning of the century. Deeply inspired by hardtek and hardcore, he quickly accustomed himself in combining the virtues of many styles from the various spectrums of electro.
2000, after a long period into metal, Enko waskitted out with his guitar and was spiting out distorted sounds, he then, discovered himself a passion for video games. That was his first step into the electronic world, but hequickly got familiar with djing and knobs feedling with a groovebox or others pieces of equipment of the kind. Now, he likes to compose a warm sound, oscillating between experimental and melodic techno encompassing by ethno dubstep.
13 – BRAINBREAKAZZ
Brain Break AzZz is the fusion between Sicko Bastard and Sol-X, an electric and energetic duo formed by two opposed universes. A fat break beat sound blended with turbo crunk, then add a hint of distortionsand some fidget flavouring are the main ingredients to produce their sound.
After collaborating on various remixes such as Partyharders, Dirty Nation and Dakrew, Brain Break AzZz are now working on Abraxxxas’s new project, in order to expand their creative fields.
CorentinBlondiau aka Taos is a drum’n’bass / dubstep Producer. Influenced by hardcore metal in his teen, he quickly got seduced by the powerful sound of drum’n’bass. He has since produced a cd album« Almost 41 », followed by a dubstep digital release « Sudden Life ». Since 2008, he is part of a new formation « Le Clan d’Estinnes » a band thatblends hip-hop, classical music and dubstep/electro altogether, wherehe istaking on board his scratching and producing skills.
The Space Invaders is an alien coming from the various galaxies of the electro scene. It all started 10 years ago, when the hardcore nimbus brought him into the underground scene in France.
Now days, he has settle down to create aheavy drum / break soundevolution through his cosmic journey.
