Mixmag – Tune Of The Month

23/07/2018

My new single “Acid Party” is Tune Of The Month in the Tunes / House section of Mixmag’s new issue, dated August. “A nine-minute liquid party jam” by Mash in Mixmag no. 327, August 2018:

Last year, the reissue of Daft Punk’s mix of The Micronauts’ 1995 track inspired Christophe Monier to get back in the studio, and we’re glad he has: this is a nine-minute acid gurgler that will be a staple track in warehouse parties. Luca Agnelli is on techno duties and Luigi Rocco gives us a tweaking main-room tech-houser. but Red Axes’ strapping, stripped-back remix or the original are the winners. A great comeback. 9/10

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

— “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.
