Toxic Avenger’s meteoric rise through the Parisian electro scene has been as hard and fast as his style of no-holds-barred electro – he got a new EP coming out and it features vocals from fellow banger Robert Bruce from South Central.
Named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Artist to Watch”, the story of The Toxic Avenger is like a warped VHS copy of a snuff film. He joined a grown-up Parisian hardcore band at age twelve. By age 22 he was packing venues with a growling new sound that left the faint at heart weak in the knees.
Today Simon Delacroix is more than a paradigm-shifting producer, he’s a world-renowned remixer (Ladytron, Peaches, FF5, Chromeo, Beni Benassi feat Kelis). An iconic DJ, and diabolical hero of his own, twisted, grind-house epic.
2011 will be a incredible time for The Toxic Avenger as he goes for his first big kill in the form of a feature-length LP entitled, “ANGST”. Hatched in Morocco. “ANGST” is a diverse, pop-format bloodbath: punk-electro, dark folk, blip-hop anthems, and of course, his trademark thriller beats; crafted along with a conspiracy of elite vocalists he met down his Parisian avenue or along the road: Annie (NO), Simon elle est bonne (FR), Lexicon (US), BonjourAfrique (FR), South central (UK), Messinian (US)..
To get everyone excited about the new EP – The Avenger is giving away the superb Bot’Ox remix for free – this is one of the best remixes we’ve heard all year – imagine Danger, Avenger and Bot’Ox in a dark alley somewhere in the ghetto in Paris mugging people and you somewhere near to understanding his dark electo.
