ABOUT Electric Rescue

Since twenty years, Electric Rescue is considered one of the made-in-France masterpieces of the electronic music but also a worldwide renowned artist. His hits are regularly played by electronic music masters like: Laurent Garnier, Sven Väth, Slam, Dubfire, Stephan Bodzin or John Digweed. By the way, the new album of electronic Rescue was released by Bedrock Records, the label of John Digweed.As described by the artist itself, it is “a techno album without limits, with different textures and colorations having always this specific Rave spirit and sonority”.

Electric Rescue has been forging a strong specificity in the electronic landscape by defending a techno neither conceding nor creating compromises, similar in this aspect to his mentor and friend Laurent Garnier.His productions have been signed on labels like «Cocoon», «SCI+TEC», «F Communications», «Ideal Audio», «Sleaze Records». In the spring of 2013, his new upcoming maxis are on the following labels: «Soma Records» (Back Home EP) and Bedrock Records (The Rave Child EP) and also one title on the «Cocoon 100» compilation (Invisibles Activists).

Electric Rescue is also a famous name as live artist and DJ. Since two decades, he has been traveling the world preaching the techno good word with passion and modesty. He had the opportunity to play in mythic clubs such as [Berghain/Panorama Bar (Berlin), Tresor (Berlin), The Edge (São Paulo), The Egg (Londres), Herr Zimmerman (Rotterdam), Air Club (Tokyo), Moog (Barcelone), even in well referenced festivals Amsterdam Dance Event (Pays-Bas), 3rd Empire (Israël), Astropolis (France), Noisily (Angleterre), Piknic Electronik (Canada), Mapping Festival (Suisse), Nördik Impakt (France)].

His artistic effervescence is also the result of his good Skryptöm Records management, an establishment he founded in 2006, on which he has signed many tracks for Popof, Julian Jeweil, Scan X, Maxime Dangles, Commuter, Traumer, Pierre Delort & Rémy Maurin, the label has collaborated with renowned remixers like: Mark Broom, Laurent Garnier, Umek, Danton Eeprom or The Hacker. On his former label, Calme Records (1999/2005), he was releasing tracks and remixes of Surburban Knight, DJ ESP / Woody Mc Bride, Thomas P Heckmann, Neil Landstrumm, Oxia, Paul Nazca, Southsoniks.

Electric Rescue is engaged in organizing special evenings in Paris, having thus a special Skryptöm residence in the Rex Club, his many famous plays take place in very bizarre and secret Parisian sites. He is always searching and valuing new emergent techno talents, so he has been the first to invite them to mix in Paris: Boys Noize, Dusty Kid, Gary Beck, Alan Fitzpatrick or Paul Ritch.

Considered as a discrete but efficient techno activist, Electric Rescue has been insuffling in his entire work the Rave values which he has been adopting, defending them and making them self-references (exchanging, sharing, brotherhood, freedom, underground culture) rejecting so the blinding DJ business spot lights.

After his very confidential El.Ue, released in 2005, on Scandium Records, Electric Rescue has creatively imagined a contemporary techno Odysseus for his new long format album. This second album, baptized Sonic Architecture, is a mix of sonic avant-garde, a techno depth, a dance floor spirit together with Rave inspirations. A strong personality Disc, taking its source in the sonic childhood memory of Electric Rescue: The pop techno of DEPECHE MODE, the Kraftwerk synthesizers or Tangerine Dream, the new wave of Orchestral Manœuvres In The Dark, the noisy and indie groove of The Stone Roses or Ride, The Herbie Hancock’s hip hop experimentations, so the named Rock It period. Although, the Electric Rescue Album remains clearly a techno album: modern, shiny, with equilibrium, pure and minimalist sonorities which pop up in rhythmic waves together with a potent, visceral groove. Its electronic colorations could evoke the Radio-Head experimental Pop or the Warp label production. One must mention the acoustic sonorities conceived by the French multi-instrument player Gran Cavaliere (four titles) giving an organic touch to the Sonic Architechture album.

Being nourished with Electric Rescue’s great experience, this album is a real visceral work, elaborated and created with a devoted artistic desire.
