    Special Event

  • Gesaffelstein

    Gesaffelstein

    Dance

    Gesaffelstein : electronic artist, France, on duty since... Uses techno and electro idioms as 
    tools designed to create an distinctive, closed aural universe. Transforms and appropriates
    those musical lexicons to write epics and atmospherics that reach beyond dancefloor
    expectations or illustrative goals. Envisions his work as system of closely related pieces, and
    not just as a bunch of good tracks. Works on textures and spaces with as much attention as on
    beats and composition : thinks his music is no less physical than a sculpture or architecture
    work, and is built as an expression of an objective environment rather than just his own
    individual thoughts.

    Listening to Gesaffelstein pieces can’t be just a passive, light-headed activity : you need to let
    yourself fully go inside it. The experience might seem dark and heavy, but it’s actually so
    fine-tuned it ends up giving you an impression of intense satisfaction : it’s a deep pleasure to
    hear an artist express the hard-edged, angst-ridden vibe of our contemporary times with such etail and such perfect sense of form. There’s a strong classicist feeling to his whole work :
    nothing is useless or ill-ordered, every sound and every silence are necessary and strongly tied
    to the rest of the action. It’s like a superior force makes them be just where they are : it’s not
    about a « personal decision », and more about following a grander structure. Things in
    Gesaffelstein tracks can sometimes get extremely tense, sometimes unbelievably self-assured
    and dominant, other times just plain cathartic, while they can also just float through grey
    shadowed areas, being numb and lost. But this wide range of feelings is actually serving one
    unique design : making proper art music for a never-ending, splendid apocalypse.
  • Brodinski

    Brodinski

    Dance

    "Brodinski is the most exciting dj and producer to explode onto the scene in recent years. Yes, he may hail from France (Reims, Lille) but he is quite unlike any of his Parisian peers. His taste in music is broad and this is reflected in his own productions and dj sets which may encompass noisy techno, bass heavy house through to more melodic minimal. His programming is impeccable and he plays with such spirit that his 6'2'rame jerks and bounces when he gets excited by a track (yet he is neveruelled with anything more than Fanta Lemon!). The hot fuss started with his debut track Bad Runner which leaked onto blog sites months before it's release on Mental Groove in October 2007. Supported by everyone from Soulwax, Tiga, Chloe, Erol Alkan, A Trak, Busy P, Switch and Laurent Garnier the track peak time techno with Martian's yakking through it was one of the sleeper hits of the year. When it was eventually released the subject 'Bad Runner' had garnered over 3500 views on Erol Alkan's forum, people just couldn't wait to get their hands on it. The flipside Solaris was a more subtle and seductive slice of techno. At the time Brodinski told FACT magazine that he would like to record for both Erol Alkan and Damian Lazarus' labels and this record seemed to sum up that ambition. Since Bad Runner Brodinski has remixed Bonde de Role, Klaxons, Das Pop, Shoes, D.I.M, Heart Revolutions and Adam Sky. Each remix has had a different approach, from the acidic (D.I.M), to vocal techno (Das Pop) to melancholic end-of-nighters (Klaxons). This May he has two releases readied to rock the summer: Gold-digger which is a primitive house groove with ululating sirens and vocal gruntsollowed by an as yet untitled techno bomb. Brodinski has already been championed by Radio Soulwax, Tiga's Turbo and Bugged Out who have all already offered him multiple gigs and festival slotsor 2008. Expect to be hearing a lot more about Brodinski this year and beyond!"(Annie Mac)

  • Para One

    Para One

    Dance

    Perhaps best known for his affiliation with the popular French rap group TTC, Para One is an alias of French electro producer Jean-Baptiste de Laubier, whose musical style is deeply rooted in golden-age hip-hop. Born in 1979 in Orleans, France, de Laubier first grew passionate about hip-hop after hearing Public Enemy, N.W.A, and the Native Tongues during the late '80s. He joined his first hip-hop group in 1993 but didn't break into the industry as a producer until 2000, when his productions began showing up on mixtapes. Around this same time he became affiliated with TTC and collaborated with them on their debut album, Ceci N'est Pas un Disque (2002), on Big Dada Recordings. De Laubier made his solo debut as Para One in 2003 on the label Institubes with the Beat Down EP, featuring TTC on the title track. He continued collaborating with TTC, producing much of their second album, Bâtards Sensibles (2004), which spawned the hit single "Dans le Club" and proved to be their commercial breakthrough, released by Big Dada Recordings in partnership with V2 Music France. Meanwhile, de Laubier continued his solo career, releasing the EP Clubhoppn (2005) and the full-length album Epiphanie (2006) on Institubes, the latter release spawning the hit single "Dudun-Dun," which was prominently remixed by MSTRKRFT and Boys Noize. Besides his own productions, he began fielding high-profile remix requests (e.g., Daft Punk's "The Prime Time of Your Life," Ellen Allien's "Down") and collaborated with TTC on their third album, 3615 (2006); moreover, his 2003-2005 collaboration with fellow TTC collaborator Tacteel - a co-founder of Institubes and a hip-hop/electro producer in his own right - on the live performance project FuckALoop resulted in the lengthy digital-only retrospective release The Early Aughties (2007). De Laubier also dabbled in the world of film, producing the Naissance des Pieuvres soundtrack, released by Institubes in 2007. Jason Birchmeier, Rovi
