Profile of the performer Krikor:
1998 : first 12 inches on [l718], a dirty take on the original French Touch sound from 1996 which could be seen as a premonition of 2008 new French Touch. Collaborations with [a1061], remixes. 2002 : Krikor teams up with [a3095] against villains of all kind, they found [a81631], a weird ghetto techno project influenced by Detroit Booty as well as IRCAM's musical research (institut of musical and acoustic research).
2003 : Krikor is more and more interested by sound experiments, he attends Octavio Lopez course (a famous contemporary music composer) at the conservatory and explores electro-acoustic techniques that he will later incorporate in his productions. Meanwhile, he becomes a resident DJ at Crispin Dior's party at 333 in East London.
2006 : he creates his own label, [l66308] and releases 12inches by [a140130], [a81631]... he also collaborates with various labels such as [l8123], [l28933], [l83305]. 2008/2009 : Krikor and [a33796] start a new duo called [a1309958]. First release on [l59093] and the famous German club label [l150470].
Today, Krikor's musical style has become more hybrid than ever, a personal synthesis of his musical obsessions : the fat groove and old drum machines of Chicago House, the abstract sounds of minimal techno, the urge and energy of Rock(abilly), the harshness of Industrial music, the dark romantism of Folk anti-heroes from the 60s and the forward thinking of GRM lab rats (Pierre Schaeffer, Pierre Henry..).
