Rone (otherwise known as Erwan Castex) is one of the most acclaimed French musicians on the electronic scene. He studied film at university and worked on a number of productions whilst pursuing music in his spare time. InFiné came across some of his tracks on the web (“Bora”) and got in touch with him. From then on, things went very fast: he released his debut EP (2008), performed his first live show at the Rex Club and released his first album, ‘Spanish Breakfast’, in 2009. With the release of ‘Tohu Bohu’ in the autumn of 2012, things reached a whole new high. Now living Paris after living 3 years in Berlin, the artist’s creative juices seem to be flowing like never before, combining a melodic straightforwardness with the firmly harnessed power of analog soundscapes.
Jeff McIlwain has been producing his visceral, melodic strain of abstract electronic music as Lusine for over 10 years now. Originally a Texas native, McIlwain met Shad Scott while living in LA and put out his self titled debut on Scott’s imprint, Isophlux. He relocated to Seattle in late 2002 and began steadily releasing his music on Ghostly International. McIlwain has also contributed tracks to various compilations and remix releases on Mute, !K7, Kompakt, Asthmatic Kitty, and Shitkatapult. In 2009, he released the album, “A Certain Distance”, which featured the single, “Two Dots.” His newest, critically acclaimed album, “The Waiting Room”, was just recently released in 2013.
McIlwain has performed throughout the US and abroad, including the Sasquatch, SXSW, Mutek, DEMF, and Sonar festivals, and sets at London’s esteemed Fabric nightclub, Tokyo’s Unit, and Berlin’s Berghain and Watergate nightclubs. He has been involved in the scoring of various film and commercial projects: co-scoring (with David Wingo) the 2008 film “Snow Angels” (with Kate Beckinsale and Sam Rockwell), and “The Sitter” (Jonah Hill) and scoring the 2009 film “Linewatch” (with Cuba Gooding Jr. and Omari Hardwick). McIlwain teamed up with David Wingo again this year to score the film “Joe” (Nicolas Cage) . He toured Europe and Japan in 2013, and is preparing an EP for release in the summer of 2014.
