Subversive Boy "Rhythm, Noize & Melody" (Le Galassie Di Seyfert 044) Out 2012-02-10
Subversive Boy (AKA: SB) hails from France, and was introduced to the world in 2004 with
his compilation “To Beat Bad Taste”, which reflected an immortal part of electronic music.
SB went on to host the 'Subversive Show' (via MediaGong.com) with b2b confrontation
between himself and other artists such as Octet, Electroménager, Signal Electrique, Ark,
Dr Macabre (aka Lunatic Asylum), DJ Daisy (aka Mandragore), Nôze, Think Twice, Mako,
Banditos, and Cat’sEyes.
The intention was to transform each mix into a One Shot, where anything is possible.
A distinctive feature of The Subversive Show, broadcasted live, was that none of the
invited guests knew the identity of SB, who remained hidden behind his hood.
The program became a reference for many, and was broadcast on a monthly basis for
three years (2005 to 2008).
At the same time, SB started producing, almost accidentally, driven by the hazards of life.
He started to tinker with tracks on his laptop, and rapidly started DJ performances in Paris,
Lyon, Dijon, and Calais, as well as London and Berlin. And in May 2005, the magazine Les
InRockuptibles picked SB out as one of the two most interesting artists of the prestigious
“Les Nuits Sonores” music festival held in Lyon.
SB has also remixed for various artists such as Laurent deWilde, Paral-lel, Rzatz, La
Caravane Electro, Itrema, les Dupont, Jels, the German band 'Hundreds', and English cult
band 'The Loved One'.
Also, in February 2012 he released in an album 'Rhythm, Noize & Melody?' for the Italian
label Le Galassie Di Seyfert.
Right about now, SB's 'Pas De Je T'aime' is about to drop on the fresh-faced UK label One
Roof Records.And, as if that's not enough, another album of his is about to drop for the Uruguayan label
SB’s work, initially mainly rhythmic and experimental in the vein of Aphex Twin, nowadays
focuses more on melodies, but is still always driven by diversity.
