Micropoint

Micropoint

Profile:
French Hardcore Techno duo. The early Dead-End records were well received but with the release of 'Neurophonie' in 1999 Micropoint shot to fame and sold literally thousands of copies through Uncivilized World. Up until this time full length hardcore CD's with a continuous mix of an artists own material were virtually non-existent. They released 'Anesthesie International' shortly after which was also well recieved. Around 2001 Micropoint suffered breaches in contract with Uncivilized World for releasing material on another label and both Radium and Al Core went their seperate ways. In 2007 Micropoint was reestablished.

Micropoint's early work on labels like Beast and Dead End still stands today as some of the best hardcore techno/speedcore around.

Tracks like E-Man, Noise Gate & Armor Battle still sound crisp as lettuce 12 years on. A lot of hardcore techno from 1996 sounds embarrasingly dated these days and obviously production has moved on a lot since then but these Micropoint tracks still sound very well made, with meaty kicks, snappy percussion and great use of sounds throughout.

Their early tracks can easily be slotted into sets of new hardcore, and when the tracks are this well executed it would be a shame to lose them to history forever. Viva la Micropoint!
