Mëtël EkTõshi Contact Booking
Nomad Groove Rec., Butterbleep rec.
Based in Franche-Comté, Fr.
Stéphane Mattheïs aka Mëtël EkTõshi is born in south of France. Very young it fall in the bins disks of the paternal. What is better to occupy perfectly her days in this village of 250 inhabitants?
Some copies in the electronic tones, in particular of Kratwerk, Roxy Music, Tangerine Dream, Cerrone, Donna Summer, Dead Can Dance, etc., will tickle the senses. From there will be born it is inexhaustible obsession of the rhythms, tablecloths and other electronic hack.
Belatedly, the acquisition of a pair of turntables Technics SL-1210 MK2 will allow me to indulge two consuming passions: the wax plates (Vinyl Discs) and the Mix.
Self-taught. Blender pancakes Hardcore to Minimal. Bulimic sounds. Addicted to vinyl trying to carve own path. Background multifaceted ranging from rock, hip-hop, electro, classical or jazz. All distilled into sets always improvised timbre deep, groovy and hypnotic, for initiatory journeys in unison with the body and sounds.
Flight case raised in France, Germany, Netherlands, Spain as well as free party, clubs, festivals, contest, block party, radios and other private parties alongside experienced and emerging artists.
• Follower of "more is long it is good", that is to say, the marathon mix. The minimum duration of a session Mix live to be 2 hours, and again. A story is built over hours. Forge a link with the dance floor, create an atmosphere, the dancers guide to another world to indulge them without restraint and offer waves of happiness that is hard in 2 hours ....... then in an hour or less, IMPOSSIBLE!
• 2011 strikes the hour of the composition. 2 years will be necessary to show my compositions. First track on the label signed Hamburg BUTTERBLEEP Records in 2013. The foot is in the stirrup...
Meanwhile proposal offered a monthly residency MIXTATURELAB hosted on MILLENIUMFM where officiates, excuse the little Uto Karem of Chris Liebing, Tom Hades, Marco Bailey, Spektre, Ramon Tapia, etc..
And another monthly residency, WARM UP THE LION hosted on RADIO Belfort.
• Strong allergy in Mx.C.A. ( Mix Computer Aided), of type Traktor or Serato, too boring of simplification. For my part, all the interest of the mix reside in the human technique, how slowing down or accelerating the tracks to synchronize them, this tension continues generated by the fact of being on the razor's edge in each round of furrows. And not in the technological quality of an interface! Without speaking of the warm and optimal quality of sound of the vinyl. Quality that the digital cannot caress, Even of the tip of the wave!! Without approaching the subject of the Mix in him even who loses all his sense as well as its noble letters thanks to the auto-sync.
Having said that, far from being fundamentalists, when the possibilities offered by these tools are used for other than take it easy, I agree and feel just as much fun to listen to Mix.
Electronic Music, My Drug!!!!
