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 be special.
So 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.
Allein and Jacobs’ musical past was a foundation for their music now. They were capable to build their own sound by bringing their past into the future. Years before their interest in electronic dance music they played in a rock band with two other persons. By playing in that band, they learned from the group how to build up a good song intensively, the drummer showed them how to incorporate accents in the percussion and the bassist taught them how to gently lift a song to the ceiling. When you listen to our recordings, you will hear the result of these influences, combined with our own technique and feeling.
Secearl tracks have been released so far and more will soon be available in Beatport, Itunes, Amazon, Juno, etc.
Their tracks are signed with highly regarded labels in the scene like ‘La Bombe’ and ‘Silver Wave’. If the names Sharooz, Phonat, Surrender! and Dunjinz ring a bell, you’ll know what we’re talking about.
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”
