Le Chocolat Noir (aka Honored Matres)

 

 

 

 

 

 

Honored Matres aka Le Chocolat Noir is hailing from the Croatian industrial city of Sisak. His vision of clubbing was formed in the Zagreb underground parties already in '91/'92 dancing lost in the smoke under strobe  lights along with other freaks. Following more then a decade of being music lover and clubber, HM/LCN started DJing in the beginning of the Millennium and produced his first tracks in 2005. He describes his production  as cold/noir electronica and likes to use the term consistent inconsistency for his work, something that's noticable when listening though his releases. HM/LCN, during his 15 years of DJing, has not restrained from playing  everything from dark to kitch, from obscure to 'hits you heard too many times', from noise and raw sound to 'as-it-shoud-be/refined' production, and much more in-between. The similar approach is duplicated into his live  performances that can be either concert or club ones, or the combination of the two. He can play one project or another or combine the two together. HM/LCN performes with hardware and live vox. Fairly  hyperproductive, he self-released three audio cassettes over the last several years while his tracks and remixes were released on Attractive!, Bordello A Parigi, Soundtravels, Romance Moderne, Creme  Organization, Basic Unit Productions, Adriatiko, Home Made Electronica, NAUK and Wave Records. 2016 will see new Eps on Frigio, Kraftjerkz and Helena Hauffs label Return To Disorder. During the last five years LCN/HM is selecting and playing a wide range of music in his radio show Disco Panonia on the  Den Hague based Internet radio Intergalactic FM and is also, together with Zarkoff, a member of Florence Foster Fan Club (FFFC). http://discopanonia.net

Boris Divider

Well known for the Electro side, since late nineties Boris Divider is producing electronic music under several names and alias, always in touch with the darker minimal and progressive electronics. He also got influences on the one hand from the first ebm waves, industrial/dark electronic scene and on the other hand from the old school electro and hiphop movement that appeared on the streets of his Madrid city in the early nineties. Cult bands such as Kraftwerk, Tangerine Dream, YMO, Vangelis... or SciFi film composers like John Carpenter, Brad Fiedel or David Chronenberg are main background to understand his music, and this helped him to start making music with computer trackers, tape decks, sequencers and synths creating a several electronic projects around year 1992.

But it was not until late 2001 he joined PSI49NET A. Rother’s label, with a demo called “Integrated Lives” (1999-2000), and officially presented in early 2002 through the "Electro Commando 1 Welcome To PsiCity" compilation. Besides that, with some productions in the queue and trying to boost his own works he brought to the light his main project called DRIVECOM in 2003. The label got a very good response around the electronic community and it became as one of the most important reference of Electro and maybe the most representative label of this kind from Spain. Now its discography includes classic tracks like “People Love Machines” (2003), “Shut Down The System” (2005), or the great “La Hora De Las Maquinas” (2006) album.

B. Divider’s works appeared not only on his label. You can find exclusively tracks on Satamile, Monotone, MSX, Semantica... imprints with an always anticipated vibe and his releases have got an international respect over the years. They have been charted and supported by the most important electro and techno djs around the world: Dave Clarke, Hardfloor, The Advent, Adam X, Exzakt, Umwelt... From the classic tunes like “Take My Beat” (2003) or “Mundo Conectado” (2006) to the last decade releases such as “Electronics” (2010), “The Last Resistance” (2010), and also the rare and limited “Ultralink” (2010) minialbum released on avant-electronics Semantica imprint. The most recent collaboration in 2011 leads him to work with Hardfloor and E.R.P. on “You Know The Score” (2011) with a dark, and smooth remix.

With the great album “The Source” (2012) finally Boris Divider establishes a new path on his career and open his mind to a new frontiers focused into the sequential and progressive electronic music, refreshing the links between the past and the future, and giving the stage for new productions such as the forthcoming “Aeon” and “Surface” episodes...

As a musician, one of the strongest points is actually his audiovisual live act. Performing sequencer, synths, keyboards and visuals controlled by MIDI in realtime, making each show different since each track is developed on the air for the audience. After almost ten years performing around the world he has received a good response and high rating from the crowd in countries such as Germany, USA (Miami / Detroit), UK, Netherlands, Finland, Croatia, Slovenia, Ireland, Malta, Spain... and playing in the most important events and clubs: Sonar Festival (ES), Amsterdam Dance Event (NL), Life Festival (IE), ..., taking his beats and sequences into the audience bodies.

DJ F could be considered as one of the finest artists the underground scene in Madrid has to offer.

He started his career as a DJ back in 1992, and very soon he became a key figure in the spanish underground scene, playing in some of the most important clubs across the country.

Influenced mainly by the early 90's sounds of detroit and I.D.M. Pioneers like Autechre, amongst a wide variety of music, DJ F soon started developing his own productions under different monikers to cover all his musical aspirations.

Quietly and step by step, F took all what surrounded him musically, look into himself too see what he really had to offer, took all that, and used it to create some of the most beautiful pieces you can think of. Music full of soul and passion, like you never heard before.He has released in labels like Frigio, Semántica, Titan's Halo, Eleve, Freebeat, AHD Records.
