A1 / Bastard Beat / Chlorophylle (original mix) After the well received Oldbut last year, Bastard Beat is back with another floorburning and hypnotical tune : peaktime monster ! B1 / Bastard Beat / Chlorophylle (Rodriguez Jr remix) Rodriguez Jr delivers a fine reinterpretation of Chlorophylle. The raw elements of the original are extracted, distilled and mixed with melodic synths. A killer remix, both efficient and subtle, elegant and emotional. B2 / Bastard Beat / CO2O2H2O From this track raises a mysterious dark atmosphere with its worrying keyboards. Nevertheless Bastard Beat is delivering here a tune straight for the dancefloor.
Producer, remixer, Dj, Live act & co-owner of "Absolutive records", Stefan Aligard aka Bastard Beat was born in 1980. As many others, he discovers electronic sounds with Acid House and the famous Smiley during the early 90’s. In 1995 Raves are blossoming, Stephan hears the first techno anthems in the countryside like Laurent Garnier, BBE, Quench, so he falls in love with Djing. Then he learns the art of sampling and buys keyboards, synthesizer and all kind of analog stuff. In 2007 he releases his very first track on the Parisian Label Basilic Records : “Logic Mistake” and “Ti 1.0” Early 2008, under « Bastard Beat » moniker, Stephan produces "Oldbut" for Scandium records (SC33) and remixes Terje Bakke for swedish Audiobahn...
Not many electronic music producers manage to release award-winning albums, sell shedloads of 12''s and perform the world over before they hit the big 3-0.But Brussels-based Rodriguez Jr - aka Olivier M - has done exactly that. As half of French electro act, The Youngsters, he's already packed more into his time in the industry than some do over their whole career. Their two studios albums - released, like their singles, on F-Com - won a string of awards and won accolades from some of dance music's biggest names.
Now holed-up in the Belgian capital, Olivier’s Rodriguez project is the product of an almost schizophrenic brand of creativity, and a thirst for the new and unexpected. Going solo offers something valuable within this business: the freedom to experiment, and break out of the musical mind-ghetto that so many great acts end up slipping into. Drawing inspiration from artists as diverse as Stockhausen, LFO, Carl Craig, Eric Satie, Kraftwerk or Michel Polnareff, his spirit of adventure translates into music that can’t comfortably be pigeon-holed. While it’s all electronic, and put together largely in Rodriguez’s own MLab Mk5 studio in Brussels, his music can be leftfield and experimental or rich, melodic and poppy – depending on his mood. Freedom indeed.
