“This is the root of acid house with a pure electro funk flare that brings the future of music together in a visual form that is destfying and bold. Never will a more unique blend of sounds from Paris and LA be put before us to listen and enjoy. The uniqueness and the visuals almost puts you in another zone of hype, its like nothing you can ever experience and something that you will never want to let go of.”

A versatile art and music unit, Scratch Massive (Sebastien Chenut and Maud Geffray) have an incredible array of both visuals and music unveiling during the upcoming months to coincide with the launch of bORDEL their US imprint aimed to showcase authentic sounds from Paris and L.A.
Their current project is Sebastien’s debut solo project, the upcoming mini LP ‘Motor of Love’ set for release this February 3.
Out now, the third single “Baiser Froid” explores dark synth pads and monophonic loops, and puts them to use but never abuses the musical rhythm. Broken sad vocals sounding like a rabbit in the cage, with no where to go, trying to find a form of light in the groove.
Making it’s premiere via Vice Noisey the ‘Baiser Froid’s’ visual component is the third of a four part experimental video series all directed by Chenut that explores a neighborhood life of a corner street in East L.A.
We discover on ‘Stranger Line” the night Rendez Vous of a private banker with some strange customers who pay him to dance.
“Loflovers Featuring Chloe” we follow a teenager who lives at this corner jogging into the hills of Elysian Park in L.A. and discovers an iPhone which is playing the video of a man dancing in a parking lot…
“Baiser Froid” continues the story, and is about the addictions of a dog of one of those strange customers. Addiction to the treats, to the tv, to Skype, and strangely entering in communication with one other dog in France…. (To be continued)
The remix from Sei A (R&S, AUS Music, Life and Death) brings a serious hypnotic and deep journey into bass with ghostly vocals, Burial’s mood with a strong dance floor groove energy. The other remix is from Turbotito from Poolside, who brings the original version into a black sand beach, a sweet mix of dark suicide balearic music circa Happy Mondays.
Scratch Massive have been vital players in the evolution of the electronic scene since forming in 1999. Recent collaborations include Jimmy Sommerville and Gus Gus’ Daniel Agust. You can hear their score for Zoe Cassavetes 2016 film release “Day Out of Days” which was the first release on bORDEL this fall.
