Biography – Les Tronchiennes

Bombing kicks, flaming snares and piercing hi-hats along with red-hot bass lines under a sharp-cut synth-shot. It sounds like war in a musical form. However, it is the prelude to a typical track of Les Tronchiennes. This war sound is part of their attempt to distinguish themselves from other musicians. At parties in and around their hometown Drongen, a borough of Ghent, they were quickly bored with the few varieties in sound and feeling while partying. In their early years, they participated ignorantly in the musical vicious circle of playing the same music all the time. But after a while they started to realize that this was nothing for them, they wanted to spin differently than the rest: they wanted to do something special.

Belgian duo Stef Allein and Matthieu Jacobs went looking for something reinvigorating. They found producers and tracks that helped them in their transformation and gave them a new vibe and inspiration. In doing this, they wanted to create something unique, something of their own, and so they started producing themselves. From that moment on, they searched and worked to find their own sound and a way to create a specific feeling in that sound; they were looking for the Les Tronchiennes-experience! After a few years they found that experience, after a wrenching time of searching they finally created their own specific sound. They’ve made a mark in the dance music culture with supporters like Soulwax, Steve Aoki, Don Rimini, Alesia, Modek, Blatta & Inesha, Autokratz, Highbloo, Sharooz, Dr. Lektroluv, Gtronic, The Oddword and Autodidakt to name a few. Their tracks were also aired on radio stations like BBC One and Studio Brussel.

Signing up to several labels like Autodidakt’s Maehtrasher, Sharooz’ La Bombe and Blatta & Inesha’s CRUX Records, Matthieu and Stef released some EP’s that didn’t stay unnoticed. Their hard work gave them the opportunities to play shows at the coolest and respected venues and clubs. From Mysteryland in The Netherlands, to Sunrise Festival in Belgium, from Q-Base and Lehmann Club in Germany back to Defqon 1 and Qult in The Netherlands as well with shows at several other festivals and clubs like Culture Club in their hometown Ghent.

Expect a thought-slaying and body-killing set if you intend to watch these guys performing!

If you were wondering this whole time what Les Tronchiennes could mean: As Tronchiennes is the French name for Drongen, Les Tronchiennes is the French translation for “The Inhabitants of Drongen”
