It was my first contact with Detroit electronic music”. By the end of 1998, after his first DJ and production experiences, under the Interwaves and Bug Orchestra nicknames, Fabrice was elevated to the ranks of the Detroit musical elite by Mad Mike himself, thanks to his classic remix of E-Dancer’s Banjo track on KMS: “Fabrice is a part of Detroit music's history by being the first white producer to record on KMS, and the first double groove recording from NSC”. Since then, Fabrice’s career regularly draws the attention of the international Techno community, thanks to a series of critically acclaimed releases: From his classic “Justice”, “Escape from Nowhere” or “Galapagos” tracks on Raygun Records to the “Even Deeper EP” with his peer Titonton Duvanté on Detroit’s 7th City Records, from the “Greed” remix for Laurent Garnier to his acclaimed first album for his Soul Designer project on F-Communications and dozens of other productions and remixes, Fabrice has built a solid discography and reputation, confirmed by his reknowned appearances at the world’s best clubs & festival line ups. (Fabric - London, Detroit Fuse-In Festival, Fuse - Brussels, Loft - Barcelona, Sub Club - Glasgow, The End - London, Famous Respect! Parisian parties, Sonar Festival, world famous official Montreux Jazz Festival, Bourges festival (On stage with Jean-Michel Jarre), plus tours in US, Canada, Japan and the whole of Asia) Recent highlights of 2003 are the already classic “Meet you in Brooklyn” EP on Playhouse Records, the “Universal Tech” & “Los Picaros” EPs on the world class techno label, Kanzleramt. The 2003 releases could almost be considered as teasers when compared to the new album released on Kanzleramt in 2004 “My 4 Stars” is already seen as a new step in melodic techno history. It is certainly the richest and most personal album from Fabrice. With live percussion, straight vocal harmonies and saxophone recordings - the result is a combination of the best of analogue old school gear and the incredible new computer possibilities of the present day. 2004 is also the year of “Soul Designer” come back on F-Com, with a new EP called “the Mother Funky Beat”. Fabrice is widening his scope of activities, with the launch of his own radio show “Sounds Square” on Studio Brussel, Belgium’s official national radio and quite likely on a radio station near you soon… Fabrice is just coming back from a big tour to support the last album; from Fabric - London to Rex Club - Paris… China (where he played for the Jean Paul Gaultier official after show), Australia, Japan… To finish on the Main Stage of the famous Fuse-In Detroit Festival 2005.
Where he was voted by Detroit Free press as the best dj Set of 2005’s Festival. 2005 is the year of a compilation of his best tracks for Technorient Label from Hong-Kong’ s Technasia. The project will hit Asia in the mid September 2005 and the rest of the world in the late September 2005. Fabrice just also finished a track with Ken Ishii for the Japanese superstar next album.
