Release Notes
  • New IDM Retro-futuristic Library Music Serie
  • 24bit / 88kHz master & cut at Parelies Studio, Paris, by François Terrazoni
  • Artwork sleeve by Chicago artist Orr Gidon

We’re very pleased to announce the release of a new series of records, between modern retro-futuristic library music and IDM, inaugurated by the great Bill Vortex!

Also known as Poborsk for about 20 years, Patrice Curtillat is one of the spearheads of the IDM in France. He has been released on prestigious labels such as Icasea (Team Doyobi), Central Processing Unit, or Flogsta Danshall (Limonious), and he is the cofounder of the skweee label Mazout, so Autechre were right by choosing him as the first part during their last French tour. Recognized by his peers from Scandinavia to England, he is a discreet but brilliant producer in the same vein as Skam or Warp labels, with in addition a typical Marseilles Balearic touch.

In this new project he reconnects with his old loves : funk, breakdance, house oldschool … always keeping his unmistakable style made of granular grooves and pentatonic melodies, in a sunny atmosphere. His feelgood music can be the ideal soundtrack for a science fiction series, a 4G TV report, or a motorcycle race.
