Electric Rescue

Since twenty five years, Electric Rescue is considered one of the made-in-France masterpieces of electronic music but also a worldwide renowned artist. His hits are regularly played by electronic music masters like: Laurent Garnier, Len Faki, Ben Klock, Marcel Dettmann, Sven Väth, Slam, Luke Slater or Stephan Bodzin. By the way, the new album of Electric Rescue is released by Skryptöm, his own imprint. As described by the artist itself, it is “a techno album without limits, with different textures 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 friend Laurent Garnier. His productions have been signed on labels like Cocoon, Affin, ARTS, F Communications, Sleaze Records.

Electric Rescue is also a famous name as a live artist and DJ. Since more than 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), Weather Festival (France), The Edge (São Paulo), The Egg (London), Herr Zimmerman (Rotterdam), Air Club (Tokyo), Moog (Barcelona), Lantern (pekin), Dama de Fero (Rio de Janeiro), Bahrein (Buenos Aires), Norte club (Cordoba), Club 69 (Edinbourgh), even in well referenced festivals Amsterdam Dance Event (Pays-Bas), 3rd Empire (Israël), Astropolis (France), Noisily (England), 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 Traumer, Moteka, Kmyle, Popof, Julian Jeweil, Scan X, Maxime Dangles, Commuter, dusty kid, the label has collaborated with renowned remixers like: Mark Broom, Truncate, Slam, Johannes Heil, Secluded, Xhin, Inigo Kennedy, Zadig, Laurent Garnier, Jonas Kopp, Flug, 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 McBride, 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, blue hour, cleric, 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, and his fantastic second album “sonic architecture” on Bedrock, Electric Rescue has creatively imagined a contemporary techno Odysseus for his new long format album. This third album, baptized Parallel Behaviors, 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 Radiohead, 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 RadioHead experimental Pop or the Warp label production.
