Leap day came and went, only adding one more day to an already incredible start of the year in music here at IMF. Since the New Year, we brought you exclusive mixes from the our good friends and Chilean super duo Mawashi, to the ‘greatest team ever‘ from down under the ’96Bulls. As we keep making our way through the EDM scene it’s clear the momentum will keep on moving strong with our next Exclusive Mix stepping into the future sounds of techno with none other than the Parisian underground deity known to internets as ValyMo.
With the elevation of future techno to the forefront of the EDM world, thanks to acts like Gesaffelstein and Brodinski, the reemergence of this once tainted sub-genre of music has greeted ravers far and wide with cold-dark-robot-open-arms. Hit the break for a download link, covers, a little background on our features DJ/Producer and prepare to choose between the red or blue pill as we plug into the Matrix with IMFmag.com Presents: Exclusive.Mix.07 featuring ValyMo.
Welcome to the world that this 20 year old frenchman, Valentin Morelle, calls home. Trapped between the dark twisted beats and robotic pulsating rhythms is an incredibly talented individual. In his short time producing he has hand crafted some of the most innovative remixes from ZZT’s “Party’s Over Los Angeles” to Gesaffelstein’s “Control Movement” and Kavinsky’s “Roadgame” but it was his remix of Justice’s “Audio Video Disco” that caught the ears of BBC Radio 1 host Kissy Sell Out and the rest was history.
His remix of “Binary” was chosen by Etienne de Crécy to be featured on his Binary Remixes Compilation. While his remix of “Cosmonaut” by French Stereo was in the top 25 of Worldwide Juno’s Charts. Not only has his remixes gain mad attention but his original productions like “Chic Chicks” reached top 100 on the WorldWide Beatport Charts.
