Electrosexual is a French electronic musician, composer, performer, record producer and Music video director living in Berlin. His passion for early electronic engines and primitive sounds from Analog synthesizer inspired his creativity mingling of rough masculine basses with an uptempo rhythm. He is the electro-sex (sometimes called sex-tronica) precursor and pioneer in France. This musical genre also features artists such as Peaches, Lesbians on Ecstasy, The Ssion, Punk Bunny, Shunda K, Scream Club and Robots in Disguise, all of whom Electrosexual has worked with. Electrosexual created its stage name in reference to surrealistic non "(human) sexuality", considering machines and synthesizers as genitors. This concept has also been developed by artists including David Cronenberg, H.R. Giger, Psychic TV and Add N to (X). Electrosexual started his musical career in 2004 as keyboardist for the French new wave band Volksmusik. They played several shows in France and released two EP’s. In the summer of 2005, after a show in Berlin (Sage Club) where he performed for the first time as a solo act, his song Trapped Inside was selected to be released on the fifth anniversary compilation of the cult Berlin label Das Drehmoment . The same year, Electrosexual created his own record label Rock Machine Records (named after the 1987 novel by Norman Spinrad) as an independent platform for electronic music, parties organizing and performances. Electrosexual offered production for the American queer hip hop duo Scream Club, mixing Electronic dance music with gender issue themed lyrics and club performances. Their first songs, one of which features vocals by Peaches, would be the very first vinyl to be released on Rock Machine in 2006. They collaborated and played live together for the next years and released two more EPs : "Break You nice/ Screaming & Crying» Featuring Shunda K was released on 2010 as a limited edition white vinyl, including remixes by Hard Ton, Leonard De Leonard and Divider. The video for the single "Break You Nice» was the first direction of Electrosexual and was broadcast on national American music channels MTV & VH1 for more several month. The same year, Shunda K of Yo Majesty requested Electrosexual’s services for the co-production of her first solo single "Here I Am To Save The World" (2010, Fanatic Records) In March and April 2010, Electrosexual and Scream Club were the support act for Robots in Disguise on their "Wake Up Tour» in the UK. They also performed together the "Wake Up" Electrosexual & Scream Club Remix as an encore. Sue Denim of the Robots in Disguise recorded vocals for Electrosexual EP "Partytime» Feat. Scream Club, released as a Digi-EP, with remixes by French Hip Hop artist "Flore», Japanese band "The Samos», "aMinus», mexican "Kumbia Queers» & german "Faster Disco». In the end of 2010, Electrosexual released "I Feel Love» that quickly became an underground club hit. The song was referred to as " a disco neo classic» and " best song of the year 2012» by the blogosphere . Electrosexual has remixed material by other artists, including David Carretta ‘s "Lovely Toy», Transformer Di Roboter’s "Baghdad Disco», I Monster’s "Sucker For Your Sound», Mirah’s "Cold Cold Water", Ssion’s "Ah-Ma", Peaches Feat Scream Club "Fine As Fuck".
