'The underground is what the politically correct devastates. Being able to make a step aside, daring to make what the times do not take in count'.
This is the leitmotiv that defines best the work and state of mind of Monoblok & Pussyselektor, an upcoming explosive duo composed of two activists of the electronic scene from the north of France.
Yann Aubertot aka Monoblok is a born experimentalist and a master in the science of obscure audio plugins with a solid classical music background. Founder and curator of Rodoid netlabel, organiser of Paysages Électroniques festival, Monoblok has been playing around with electronic textures for the most part of his life and today he produces hybrid minimal techno with an experimental edge.
Benoit Mascot aka Pussyselektor has been setting dancefloors on fire at many clubs and festivals in France and in Europe alongside the main international djs & live acts. Party promoter/Resident DJ at the famous underground Kiosk Club in Lille and resident DJ at N.A.M.E. Festival, he is also part of Signaletik Records as promotion manager for this new French techno label already supported by some of the greatest electronic artists.
Since they decided to join forces, Monoblok & Pussyselektor have been busy producing and defining their own personal style by synthesizing their respective ideas and influences and putting them in synergy. Their first shot, Straighthead EP, released by French label Notorious Elektro was a brilliant minimal-tech two tracker that has already proved highly effective on the dancefloor and earned support from Terence Fixmer, Marc Antona, Electric Indigo, Savas Pascalidis, Compuphonic, Brodinski, Hervé AK, David Keno, to name a few.
