International Festival of Digital Creativity and Electronic Music

CANADIAN PREMIERE

Long under-recognized for his contributions to the French house scene, the undeniably talented Pépé Bradock (aka Julien Auger) appeared on the scene in the mid- to late-90’s, at a time when fellow French-house producers like Philippe Zdar, Etienne de Crecy, and Thomas Bangalter were beginning to make international waves. Such was not to be the case for Auger, as his original recordings were sporadic and hard-to-find, and he instead focused his prodigious talents on remix work. The appeal of Bradock’s catalogue is also arguably the factor that has kept him from being better known: he is as wildly unpredictable from record to record as are his choices in remix projects, and he is apt to explore diverging strains of deep house, breakbeats, filter disco, or other sub-genres at a dizzying pace that is difficult to categorize. But resurgent interest in both the French Touch and deep house scenes in recent years have been kind to Pépé Bradock, and his discography has been revisited by a number of crate-digging DJ’s and producers’ producers. The surge in interest culminated in 2009 with the release of the BBE label’s career-spanning compilation of Pépé Bradock’s remixes, a two-disc affair entitled “Confiote de Bits”. Auger has also run his own Atavisme imprint since 1997, which has been home to the intermittent original material his fans follow closely. After such a long absence,MUTEK is proud to bring this hidden house treasure to the outdoor stages of the Piknic for his long-overdue Canadian premiere.
