Marst, A Newcomer Of The French Techno Scene

Published

I invite you to discover Marst, a newcomer of the French Techno scene, with his melodic electronic music, supported by Laurent Garnier and played by a lot of international Dj’s!
 
Biography
« My aim is to be in osmose with the public, to make it listen to my music with its body and its soul, to make it see my music as well as hear it. If I manage to share my emotions that way, I’ll feel I live one hundred per cent. »
 
Marst -106 Club, October 2009 Martial Thebault, known as Marst, was born on February 6th, 1988 at Blanc-Mesnil in the subburbs of Paris, France. From his early youth, all his main interests were related to music. At the age of 4, he joins a drums class. He will enjoy playing this instrument for years and will obtain a few diplomas at the Agostini school. Meanwhile he is self-taught in playing a few other instruments like the piano/keyboard, the guitar and the bass.
 
Enjoying verses and rhymes, the worlds of Gainsbourg, Pink Floyd or Chopin, Marst becomes as a teenager the leader of a French pop-rock band as a writer, composer and singerand wins a few contests. He also receives a money grant from the « Région Haute-Normandie » and takes up a challenge : to achieve the production of an EP on his own.
 
The use of computer music has always been present in his artistic evolution. Along acoustical instruments, he gets to own at a very young age an Atari, an old Karz wavestation, a sampler and an expander, ultimate presents from a musician older cousin. That is how Marst starts to explore the psychedelic world of the machines in the late nineties.
 
He tinkers about, discovers and plays sampling sounds and makes music arrangements for a very long time. The Cd-roms in magazines and the demonstration software leads him little by little to make his first synthetic tries.
 
In 2005, Marst breaks his money box to buy more professional material. His musical knowledge, influenced by rock but also electronic sounds from Detroit, Chicago, New York or Berlin, makes him discover Laurent Garnier who will soon become his real source of inspiration. Later on, he will focus on electronic music and the composition of tracks with powerful house and techno rhythms, always melodious, according to pure musical philosophy and respect of harmony.
 
Thanks to the purchase of his first turntables in 2006, he can see his acoustic projects take form electronically through mixing. His carreer then gets a start, he becomes a resident at the Shari Vari in Rouen, plays in most of the bars in this city where unfortunately there are not electronic music clubs anymore. He is spotted and plays in the first part of Vitalic’s concert at the 106, a concert hall for contemporary music. The audience appreciates, other cities then open their doors : Paris, Poitiers, Caen…
 
June 2011 : he decides to set aside the DJ sets to get involved in production more seriously. Early July : he puts one of his composition on the internet Sun on the Moon, a title of powerful techno melody, supported by an overwhelming saxophone riff… And to his great surprise, there was an immediate positive reaction : more and more people listen and share on the social networks, many give their support : Madben, the Sonic Crew (Astropolis Festival), Agoria, Seth Troxler, Nuno Dos Santos, Ian O’Donovan… He gets invited to parties and festivals.
 
Then comes the second important event in his life : the side B , Waterlight, of his first maxi is put on the internet and this time he gets the full support of Laurent Garnier who plays his music in his weekly radio programme It is what it is (le Mouv’ / Pure FM / Couleur 3) and who keeps playing it everywhere around the world, at nearly all his performances (Time Warp, Nuits Sonores, Berghain & Panorama Bar, Londres, New York…). He even comes to compare it with his famous Crispy Bacon, a real honor for Marst!
 
Sun on the Moon EP is released in March 2012 on Deep Movements, a new French label. From then on, Marst receives requests for productions and remixes…
 
He has since released and will release original tracks and remixes on the following labels: Timid Records, Aegyptia Recordings, A-Traction, Espai Music, Stripped Off …

Fiin
Miami artist Fiin returns to Ultra Records with “Still In The Storm”, his next single on the label in collaboration with Argentinian duo Brigado Crew and British singer Jinadu. Fiin’s underground influenced style manifests in deep, driving basslines formed from a classic “four on the floor” rhythm. “Still In The Storm” is the kind of track that is right at home in dark basement clubs or intimate Techno festival stages. Haunting vocals from Jinadu and shaker-infused melodies bring an otherworldly element to “Still In The Storm,” making this dark progressive gem with depth a sophisticated production. Fiin previously released on Ultra Records multiple times, including his debut single on the label “Calling Out” also with Jinadu, while Brigado Crew has released on Stil vor Talent, Diynamic, Katermukke, and more.

Fiin has been taking the Miami electronic music scene by storm as one of its youngest and most promising up-and-comers. His weekly “Relic” party at 1-800-Lucky every Sunday had become a staple in the community and served as a closing ceremony to the city’s vibrant music scene. He cut his teeth as the youngest resident of Heart Nightclub. He played alongside some world-class DJs, including the opportunities to go b2b with Paco Osuna, Butch, Hot Since 82, Technasia, and more. In 2019 he played gigs through North America, Europe, and South America at BPM Festival, WMC, Lost Circus, to name a few. Known for his daredevil, risk-taking production style, we have no doubt that this is only the beginning of a very exciting journey for Fiin.
