He recently founded a side project Out of Respect Records, a leftfield dance music label run with his European affiliates Nik24kt & Intl.co.
He has released a new single which features two tracks called “Line 851(express)” and “Sum’Shit“. He explains about the project: “One night we were talking about what it was like to go to parties as teenagers. How every aspect is exciting and kind of dangerous, especially for a kid. The House & Techno scenes in France & Chicago were at their peak in the late 80s / early 90s and we were lucky to see what we did. Next thing you know I started to patch on my Eurorack modular systems, programmed some 909 and tracked some emotional strings. When I opened the mic Rob [English] told a story about taking a bus to the Legendary Muzic Box in 1989.“
Check the official video for the track “Line 851 (Express)“. It is a tribute to the late 1980s / early 90s house & rave scenes, featuring rave flyers reimagined by director and animator Tobias Lever.
