"It's all high tech jazz in the end, right?" Stellar OM Source steps up to mix Juno Plus Podcast 48, and her Yesterday Is Karma selection takes indulges her love of house and techno.
Currently based in Belgium, the artist has a production history dating back to 2005, self releasing homespun synth explorations and appearing on labels such as Olde English Spelling Bee and Digitalis. Those early productions saw the producer, real name Christelle Gualdi, explore technicolour visions of New Age psychedelia inspired by the digital age, with the dreamy chords owing a debt to the machine-driven soul of Detroit techno. These influences have come to the fore in her forthcoming (and much delayed) 12-inch for Rush Hour's distribution sub-label; the four tracks on offer combine Gualdi's penchant for crafting delicious synthesiser melodies with pulsing drum patterns.
The artwork that adorns her releases embellishes the sense of retro futurism that lurks within the music itself. The sci-fi writings of William Gibson and Philip K. Dick are as much of an influence as Drexciya or Juan Atkins on her music, while her profession as an architect means she also draws on the visions of radical utopias by Superstudio and Archizoom for creative inspiration. In addition to her 50-minute Juno Plus mix, recorded live on vinyl, Christelle was kind enough to answer some questions we fired at her about her evolving sound, her upbringing on the outskirts of Paris and the art of collaboration.
