Agency / DJs / Aeon Seven
Funky Furious on the 45s!
Before driving at breakneck speed with his electronic project Christine, Aeon Seven was one of the first turntablists in his region of France, unbeatable with hip hop breaks, funk 45 & obscure samples of any kind.
Music and skateboarding form the pattern of Aeon Seven's teenage years, with Jason Lee, Matt Hensley, Public Enemy, Beastie Boys and Sonic Youth as a backdrop. Part of an ephemeral punk rock band as a guitarist and crate digger well ahead of time, he gained his musical culture by collecting vinyl records. The turning point came with the discovery of Dj Shadow and Dj Qbert. From this time, he went deeper into hip hop culture, bought a mixer, a second turntable, exploited the collected records and became a DJ. Resident at the legendary "Café Curieux" in Rouen, he gets deeper into audio production, and in 2000, he released his very first record "Beyond The Time Barrier". A record made up of instrumentals and sounds to scratch with, aimed to be used by turntablists. Then he participates at the Rock Dans Tous Ses Etats Festival in 2003 and shared the stage in 2004 with Hexstatic and Modeselektor at 6th Nordik Impact. Then in 2005, he released his funk masterpiece "Funky Furious" revealing his passion for Deep Funk and drumbreaks which constitute the basis of Hip Hop production.
In late 2007, Aeon Seven meets Kunst Throw, a younger DJ with whom he shares the same musical influences. They play hot gigs together that lead them to mix their Hip Hop / Funk / Rock influences with the new electronic scene in full bloom at the moment. In 2010, they created the project "Christine". The Duo first attracts attention through their stage appearances, won a subsidy, elected "Printemps de Bourges discovery" in 2011 and to the Transmusicales festival the same year. In 2012 they won "Les Détours D'Adami" that enabled them to play in many big french festivals (Francolfolies, Vieilles Charrues, Solidays, Eurockéennes, MEG festival in Montréal, Sakifo at La Réunion, Guadalajara in Mexico, Montreux and Paleo in Switzerland…). The Band released their 2 EP "Catharsis" and "Death On Wheels" the same year. Then came 2 auto produced Eps "Ecstatic Sole" and "Brand New Furies" , followed by the full soundtrack production of "Sam Was Here", a movie directed by Christophe Deroo.
An active DJ and Producer for more than 15 years, this unconditional vinyls lover leaves Christine late 2015 to get back to his first love. After sharing the stage recently with Rejjie Snow, DJ Nu-Mark + Slim Kid 3 and Lee Fields and The Expressions, he has just released "Lowdown Spectrum", a new video mix project that put the light on his love for mixing 45 in tune and scratching. Also to follow soon, a mix for Funk Night Records (Detroit) and new original productions aimed to be abstract hip hop oriented with a retrofuturistic mood, that will feed the long awaited Aeon Seven 1st LP.
To Celebrate joining 45 live crew, he plans to make a new 1 hour mix and 2 original tracks to be released on 45 live records.
