ABOUT

WHETHER AS A DJ, PRODUCER OR LABEL MANAGER, FRANÇOIS X EXCELS IN CRAFTING HIS PATRIMONY, GATHERING ALL HIS MUSICAL INFLUENCES FROM TECHNO AND HOUSE TO NEW WAVE AND MORE DREAMY/HYPNOTIC VIBES TO EVENTUALLY FORM A COMPLETELY UNIQUE HYBRID SOUND.

RESIDENT AT CONCRETE, THE MOST BLOSSOMING VENUE IN PARIS, HE HAS BUILT HIS RIPENESS FROM BEING AN EARLY PASSIONATE OF THE DETROIT-CHICAGO-NYC CLUB SCENES AND A COMPULSIVE RECORD DIGGER WITH A RICH AND WIDE MUSICAL KNOWLEDGE, FRANÇOIS X SUCCESSFULLY CREATED A SYNERGY BETWEEN GENRES THAT TURNED HIM INTO A TALENTED AND OPEN-MINDED PRODUCER AND ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED TECHNO DJS.

HIS RECORDING ETHOS AND SKILLS QUICKLY CONVINCED INFAMOUS TECHNO PIONEER DJ DEEP TO RELEASE HIS FIRST RECORDS ON HIS LABEL DEEPLY ROOTED STARTING WITH ‘FUTURE ROOTS VOL3’ IN 2009.
IT ALSO GAVE HIM THE OPPORTUNITY TO WORK WITH MARCEL DETTMANN FOR THE FIRST TIME (THE LATTER REMIXED
‘CODE RED’ IN 2011) AND DEVELOP A STRONG RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM (WHICH WILL LATER LEAD HIM TO RELEASE ‘RISING’ ON DETTMANN’S MDR).

AFTER 2 OTHER EPS ON THE PARIS-BASED LABEL, FRANÇOIS X DECIDED TO MAKE A MOVE AND LAUNCHED WITH LONGTIME FRIEND HEARTBEAT WHAT WOULD BECOME THE DEMENT3D IMPRINT; A VIVID RECORD LABEL PROVIDING AVANT-GARDE TECHNO MUSIC TO THE MASSES AND PROMOTING ESTABLISHED ARTISTS (SUCH AS POLAR INERTIA AND IN AETERNAM VALE) AND BUDDING NEW TALENTS (LIKE DSCRD).

IT WAS ALSO THE PERFECT WAY FOR HIM TO CREATE AND ENHANCE A PLATFORM ON WHICH HE COULD RELEASE HIS OWN SOLO (‘SUSPENDED IN A STASIS FIELD’ IN 2014) AND DUAL WORKS (WITH OPUSWERK AS HISS:1292 AND WITH ANTIGONE ON THE STELLAR ‘WE MOVE AS ONE’ EP IN 2016).

IN OCTOBER 2016, THE FRENCH PRODUCER RELEASED THE STRIKING ‘UNICORN PARANOÏA’ EP REACHING A PERFECT BALANCE BETWEEN LEGACY AND MODERNITY.

HE RETURNS IN 2017 WITH ‘IRREGULAR PASSION’, HIS VERY FIRST FULL-LENGTH EFFORT DUE IN JUNE ON DEMENT3D.
