Electromeca

Profile:
Experimental broken beats and breakcore act from Rennes/France, well known for his very unique cut up style which is quite distorted but funky at the same. Released on labels such as Peace Off, Casse Tête and Death$ucker Records.

Taken from artist's myspace page:
Since he discovered that FM-radio could sound way much better through his SP202, Electromeca didn't stop to cut-crush-distort-chop-chew-spit-reconstruct fat & dirty beats with a delicious guilty pleasure. That's it: James Brown driving a bulldozer through a wrecking yard, hectic B-Boys break-dancing in a puddle of motor oil, The Bomb Squad meets Russolo in a Z-movie disco-club, FM-radio harsh beats, dismantled stuttering beat-box, muddy boom-bap... Basically: hard & heavily damaged club music.

Electromeca stands out for his clarity, complexity, restraint and funk and keeps his tracks moving without much use of melodic elements, noisy harshness or hooks. Just incredible nimble drum programming, a little bass and some atmosphere. Supremely fucking sick. His lower tempos (by breakcore standards) might be of interest to techno djs looking for experimental breaky stuff to fold in their sets. Tip.

Oh man, I am so waiting for this guy to release an album. When it comes to breakcore there's nobody better than Electromeca. His stuff, sometimes bordering on rhythmic noise, is just catchy as hell. Robotic, solid rhythms and cool beats, this is what it sounded like if hiphop was made in giant steelmills. What more can you ask for? Now release that CD, mr. Electromeca!

One of the freshest producer now, regarding the WHOLE french electronic scene (from hiphop to hardcore). Everything I know from him is just great. He could be kinda Knifehandchop/Bombardier/Com.A crossover, but he's better than that. This is a message to all the music lovers: if you're not afraid by nosebleeding, you should check the french breakcore new skool... those guys just kick ass!
