VOLPHONIE gets off to a blazing start with a special vinyl and digital combo pack. Chris Honorat is considered somewhat of a stalwart, where his impact on the Paris scene can be dated back to early 90’s radio and working at Laurent Garnier’s USA Import record shop. A seven year residency at the legendary Rex Club proves his pedigree, but as a producer has releases on A-TRACTION, Kevin Saunderson’s KMS and Get Physical to name only a few.
Another idolised and highly regarded fellow, Scan X puts forth new original material for his Alien Symphony EP. With a back catalogue that includes Skryptöm, Harthouse, Stephan Bodzin’s Herzblut, and two critically acclaimed albums on Laurent Garnier’s F Communications, it’s not hard to comprehend why he has earned a lot of accolades. Being Laurent Garnier’s go-to sound engineer for around fifteen years, Stéphane also concentrates on live performances of his work.
A host of remixes are also featured here, with Berghain influencer Marcel Fengler, Rex Club resident and Skryptöm owner Electric Rescue, label boss Chris Honorat, and a couple of promising French artists known as Keikari and Kolde respectively.
The rework we selected for this DT:Premiere is by Keikari a member of the Regal Sound collective, modular enthusiast, and lover of sound textures, where his music has been released on La Chinerie, Joton’s Newrhythmic and Rekord 61’s Kontruktiv amongst others. It’s raw, hypnotic and driving sound is an instant draw, injecting not only power but depth and dancefloor prowess to the original.
