Armed with a Telecaster and dreams of a deserted city, The Rouge Mécanique, born Romain Azzaro, sauntered onto the runway in 2013 with the highly acclaimed Rekids EP, ‘Witches," a record memorably packaged in hand-stitched leather--as brutal and elegant as the sound inside.   

Since this debut, many have witnessed the cinematic style of his rhythmic-strut-5am-blues-party productions--elemental and perpetually mobile, a fresh cut in the groove of sassed-out disco and rock-n-roll that also pays homage to the digital pulse of dance music.  

Raised between France and Italy, The Mécanique found his wave playing guitar and drums in punk, coldwave, and psychedelic bands through his teenage years, all the while informed by his prior piano background at the Conservatory of Paris and his abiding interest in the collision of fashion and film alike.   

All of these influences are metabolized in his upcoming releases and his increasingly legendary live shows which maneuver effortlessly between ambient and techno; between the acid-house modulations of his roland jp 8080 and the lysergic wayfarer of his vocals and guitar, each spiraling toward a chaos theory of its own accord. The result is a live experience that seeks to break out of the dazed loop of ketamine infused minimalism while returning to the pogo'd mind, body, and spirit of proto/future punk. Here we have, finally, a post-apocalyptic metallic sunset ...

Here we have, finally, a post-apocalyptic metallic sunset sound that recalls the best of neu! and their motorik 70s chug laced with the angular insecticide of polyrhythmic deviance, a perfect antidote to the sclerosis of the current dance scene.
