The dark lost robotic french soul they call ValyMo took it upon himself to completely annihilate the freshly processed Crystal Castles track, “Kerosene”. Bringing it into the dark corners between the trap and electronic sounds, ValyMo creates a future soundscape of chaotic beauty. Hit the break for the original track, if you’re one of the handful of lone souls left who hasn’t heard (III).
From my first listen of his remix to ZZT’s “Party’s Over Los Angeles” to the exclusive mix that dropped for IMF back in March, ValyMo has been on of those DJ/Producers that I’ve sought after; checking for new productions and never being disappointed by this dark robotic techno monster. With his uncanny ability to bring that raw unadulterated musical energy to the masses ValyMo has burst onto the scene like gangbusters and has garnered support from DJ’s across the world. More recently the love has spread from his home country of France across the small pond to the UK as he was featured and remixed by resident DJ and BBC1 Radio personality Kissy Sellout. A lot of things have happened since we last talk and the world is starting to feel the energy and love.
Last week I got a chance to catch up and pick Morelle Valentin’s brain about his new The Love EP on Boxon Records, what he thinks about the resurgence of techno into the mainstream, influences, his progression from Bogata Dogs and how it felt when he heard his tracks being played on the Kissy Sellout BBC1 radio show. Hit the break for the interview along with a few bonus goodies that ValyMo brought on through for the people.
ValyMo keeps the music going with his latest remix of “Night Mechanics” by EdgeWork. The hypnotic synth work has a Boys Noize-esque feel and the energy of the track only builds greater as the record proceeds. Available today on Beatport, so pick yourself up an absolute techno beat banger. If you want more on this incredible talent then check out the exclusive mix that ValyMo did for us this month.
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.
The robotic phenomenon called ValyMo has returned with other techno banging remix from the depths of the French underground. This time the Das Glow track “Concrete” gets a tripped out wild ride remix. Hit the play button bellow then head on over here to vote for the one they call Valymo.
The twisted mind of ValyMo has struck again and this time Kavinsky’s “Roadgame” is his victim. It hasn’t been a few days past when Kavinsky dropped “Roadgame” but the always impressive ValyMo has worked his wonders to craft an incredible tune unrecognizable from the original. We’ll definitely be hearing more from this rising star in the coming months but until then come play the roadgame.
ValyMo is back with an excellent remix of the Colt Silvers track “Hide and Seek”. There has yet to be a remix by this Parisian that hasn’t been on repeat in my iPod. And “Hide and Seek” is a wonderfully crafted electro-pop record that any hipster or electro junky wouldn’t rock out to. Add this to the weekends playlist and lets all play a little hide and seek in the city tonight! And as an added bonus head on over to www.hide-and-seek.fr for an interactive video of Colt Silvers’ “Hide and Seek”.
The incredible ValyMo will control all movement with his massive remix of Gesaffelstien’s “Control Movement” off the Bromance #1 EP. The original was already mean, dark and vicious but ValyMo sot out the turn the track into a demented monster. From the minute the ValyMo vocal drops utter chaos will proceed with uncontrollable rhythmic head and body movements. But no worries the sinister baseline will guide you on this dark and dirty synth filled rave. Rage hard and don’t look back.
