The Micronauts “Acid Party” — New Single Out June 22

05/06/2018

— Full-on acid house with a postmodernist twist! —

It’s been a while since I released new material… I am particularly pleased to announce that my new EP “Acid Party” will be out June 22 on Micronautics!

It will come with remixes by Red Axes, Luca Agnelli (head of Etruria Beat) and Luigi Rocca (co-founder of 303Lovers and Hotfingers). A video directed by Elsa Milovanovic will follow.

“Acid Party” is the lead single from my forthcoming studio album. Like last year releases on Micronautics, Sylvia Tournerie created the artwork (using details from a drawing by Emmanuelle Mafille, which will be completely unveiled on the cover of the album).

When “The Jag” was heavily supported by NME

12/04/2018

[Team The Micronauts]

Officially released in 1999, two years after being produced, “The Jag” is the song that allowed The Micronauts to sign with Science, a London-based offshoot of Virgin Records (now Virgin EMI Records). The A&R was Steve Brown, who also ran The Chemical Brother’s label Freestyle Dust. Label mates were Detroit pioneer Stacey Pullen, as well as kings of avant-garde drum & bass Photek and Source Direct.

Having reached today the status of a cult classic, “The Jag” immediately caught the attention of the famous British music weekly NME, which supported it strongly.

“As a French fan of music, being signed to the UK branch of Virgin Records and lauded by the legendary newspaper NME was like a consecration”

Plastic Dreams

06/04/2018

Olivier Degorce’s “Plastic Dreams” is a superb collection of photos of the Parisian raves and parties in the 90s, behind the decks or on the dancefloor. Sweet to see The Micronauts in ’97 and all the friends! Out now on Headbangers Publishing, the book publishing arm of Ed Banger Records.

Cool de revivre les raves et les fêtes parisiennes des années 90, grâce au superbe recueil de photos d’Olivier Degorce, « Plastic Dreams », qui vient de paraître chez Headbangers Publishing (la branche édition d’Ed Banger Records). Encore plus cool d’y retrouver un bon échantillon de la mode ou des DJs de l’époque, des photos de The Micronauts en 1997, ainsi que tous les potes !


The Face – Bass Burners

29/03/2018

— “Mentalist noise monsters The Micronauts dig out their favorite woofer-blowing vinyl” —

Three weeks ago, we posted the first story on The Micronauts ran by The Face, the famous British ‘style bible’. The magazine also published reviews of releases by Christophe’s various projects and an article on The Micronauts’ secret weapons when DJing, which included tracks by Chiapet (a side-project of Mood II Swing’s John Ciafone), Satoshi Tomiie, Leftfield, Tipper and Green Velvet.

The Micronauts in Urb

22/03/2018

Urb was a LA-based magazine about urban lifestyle, with the catchphrase “Future Music Culture” and mixing hip hop and electronic music before everyone else. Available in print from 1990 to 2009, it is now online.

The Micronauts was in its annual “Next 100” selection of up-and-coming musicians in March-April 1999. The following month’s issue included a great review of the compilation of early hip hop cuts “Celluloid – The Electro Years – Why Is It Fresh?”, which Christophe overseen for the label Distance. The Urb editorial team was a fan of the single “The Jag”, writing a nice review for the September-October 1999 issue and adding it to numerous playlists. Especially “The Jag” was ranked 6th among the best singles of the year by both Editorial Director Stacy Osbaum and Associate Editor Daniel Chamberlin. Last, the ninth anniversary issue of January-February 2000 featured a much-promoted article on the French New Wave titled “The French Revolution”, which included Cosmo Vitelli, Phoenix, The Tone, Rob and The Micronauts.

i-D – Neither Lo-Fi Or Hi-Fi, It’s Sci-Fi

15/03/2018

— The Micronauts’ sound: “neither lo-fi or hi-fi. It’s sci-fi.” —

Launched in the early 80s shortly after The Face (see our last week’s post), i-D has established itself as the other big ‘style bible’ in the UK. Somehow even its typographic logo, a winking smiley, was ahead of its time. i-D is still alive and kicking today, thanks to its acquisition by Vice Media.

Journalist Susanna Glaser wrote this nice column early 1999 to introduce The Micronauts to its readership and to announce the single “The Jag”: “an outta-here never-let-it-end journey along the highest acid squiggle mountains, the wobbliest electro seas, the deepest sub-bass valleys, even lifting you up into soulful vocal heaven.”

The Face – Sci-fi Allstars

08/03/2018

— “Wayward acid punk, heavy on the electro basslines” —

The Face was a British music, fashion, and culture monthly magazine. Viewed as a ‘style bible’ and an ‘almanac of cool’, the seminal title is the subject of a book recently published by Thames & Hudson (“The Story Of The Face” by Paul Gorman) and is set to be revived by the publisher of Mixmag.

“The Face was a strong supporter of The Micronauts, as well as my other band at the time, Impulsion. This first article was written early 1999 by Dorian Lynskey for the release of the single ‘The Jag’.”
