Shift & Badbox reunite on the 4th of March with Conrete’s residents François X & Shlømo [live]
François X (Dement3d / Deeply Rooted // Paris)
Francois X has established himself as a key character in the techno scene. Both as a DJ and a producer, his unique style, whether alone or as his 1292 collaboration with Opuswerk puts you into a hypnotic trance by its cinematic and vivid atmosphere.
After 10 years of DJing Francois X released 3 EPs on DJ Deep’s label Deeply Rooted House. Francois X’s track “Rising” featured in Marcel Dettmann’s Fabric 77 CD, this track was later released on Marcel’s label MDR
Francois X is also a co-founder of record label Dement3d together with Heartbeat on which he released an EP called “Suspended in a statis field”
His consistently exceptional DJ sets secured Francois X a residence at Concrete, the world-famous parisian party, as well as regular slots at some of Europe’s leading clubs and festivals including Berghain.
Shlømo (Taapion // Paris)
Paris born Shlømo, 28 years old, is currently one of the new figures of French techno scene.
He discovers this scene in 2005 with electronica and IDM music, being influenced by Warp, Aphex Twin and Boards of Canada. A few years later, he comes accross warehouse techno parties inspired by Sandwell District, his enthusiasm bringing him to buy his first machines to start producing.
In 2013, he creates Taapion Records with AWB and PVNV and releases his first EP : The Har- vest, which was really well received by the audience.
His music is at the crossroad of techno, electronica and original movie soundtracks. Bit by bit, he is playlisted by Inigo Kennedy, Donato Dozzy, Darko Esser, remixed by Norman Nodge and the French artists Bambounou, Antigone.
It has been now three years that this gifted producer dedicates himself to live production, such as the one he presented in 2015 at the ADE (where he played alongside artists from PoleGroup, Modularz and Wolfskuil), or at the Exit and Weather Festival.
He signed a remix with Antigone for AWB (on his own label Taapion), released his EP Rechaïm with remixes from Bambounou, Donato Dozzy, Kennedy Smith and himself on Bright Sounds. He also released In Absentia EP on Delsin and The Rapture EP on ARTS, Vanished Breath on Wolfskuil and is currently working on an album to be released on Taapion as well as several remixes.
