Samy, aka Kmyle, is now signed on Antoine Husson aka Electric Rescue’s French techno label Skryptöm. Nowadays an experienced DJ and producer, he offers a unique raw style of techno music. Keen on electronic music since he was a child, Samy could deservedly be considered a self-taught musician.

Born in Algiers, he steps foot in France at the age of 5 before leaving for a few years for Montreal with his family, returning to Southern France in 1998. He used to listen a lot to his sister playing the piano before trying to recreate the melodies by himself. Noticing this tendency, his parents sign him in for music school where he learns the guitar and the piano.

Settled in Provence, regular school is not what animates him the most and he seeks to thrive through music. He starts to play several gigs in his town’s concert hall.

Aged of 11, Samy starts digging into techno music. Fascinated with late night radio shows from London or Detroit, he starts collecting these exclusive techno mix tapes on cassette.

“I thought they were amazing even without understanding what they were doing”

He finds a music production software in his local library and spends his afternoons rather at the record store than in classrooms. Thanks to his first savings, he managed to purchase a pair of turntables and starts producing and mixing at home. Visiting all nightclubs of his region, he finally meets several artists and professionals of the techno movement. He officially played for the first time in Marseille at an after party under a former alias, that enables him to release several of his productions on notorious labels.

After moving to Toulouse in 2013, his sound turns into a rawer, more emotional and pared down techno. Antoine Husson is convinced by this first draft and signs him on his label, Skryptöm. He offers Samy the opportunity to start a new project, entitled Kmyle.

Now aged 27, after 4 releases on Skryptöm, Kmyle sees many of his tracks played by some of the greatest DJs: Laurent Garnier, Marcel Dettmann, Inigo Kennedy, Pär Grindvik, Dixon…

2017 will see the release of his first solo album, condensed with strong, authentic emotional work and motivation, that cannot leave its audience impassive. Comfortable with DJing as well as for live shows, he is one of France’s most promising artist of the current techno scene.
