Id!r (Mange_ Moi)
Classically trained guitar lines blur into angular post-punk fuzz when rising French producer, DJ and label owner Idir Abermil mans the console. From his days playing axe in bands to his nights spent in dark Parisian basements, savoring the future techno, id!r has made ‘new waves’ in this brave new world. His well-received debut EP was followed by a certified underground hit in the form of his collaboration with Tunnel Signs, “Runner” on Matt Walsh’s esteemed Clouded Vision. The future is bright… or perhaps ‘dark’ for this young sonic adventurer.
