Julien Bracht 
Now Forever One / SYS005LP
Fresh off of a remix for Grimes’ “My Name is Dark”, producer Julien Bracht has been powering through CV19 studio seclusion on full-power, with a distinct vision for brighter days ahead. Bracht’s new album, “Now Forever One,” an emblem of dark analog synthwave, is set to drop June 11. Bracht’s first solo album under his own namesake is cut with surgical precision for the shoegazing astral sound travellers who long to break out of their pandemic quarantines, and reconvene for techno-induced ascension. The album’s first single, “Melancholia,” and it’s accompanying video, is already breaking hearts and charts. An exquisite sonic hybrid of communal revelry and profound introspection, “Now Forever One,” focuses Bracht’s multilayered craftsmanship on resolving this era’s angst with sensory exploration and optimism.

As a lifelong drummer, Bracht’s insatiable musical energy lead him to bang out his first 3 EPs within one year of first being signed in 2011-12. In 2015 he founded the band Lea Porcelain with Markus Nikolaus in London. Their hypnotic post-rock debut release in 2017, “Hymns to the Night,” gained instant acclaim from UK tastemakers Lauren Laverne, Steve Lamacq and Zane Lowe, to name a few. The lads broke back onto the international stage with dates on several major festivals around Europe, including the Leeds/Reading Festival, Great Escape Brighton and Latitude. Rich output combined with the inclusion of live drums in his solo live sets quickly gained Bracht recognition and slots on the global tour circuit.

“Now Forever One” forges Julien Bracht’s transition from techno djing, while continuing the explorations of texture and timbre over functional song structures from Lea Porcelain, to a more open-ended search for the aural sublime — the substrate on which music, life and light glide to create momentary nodes of meaning in an increasingly meaningless sociopolitical atmosphere. These are crucial themes to Bracht’s process and approach. “The intention in my music is to strengthen people’s awareness and minds… I want us all to gather in spirit and stick together.”

The album exemplifies Bracht’s hunt for elemental juxtaposition with the warm Prophet 6’s sawtooth howls and bright pads against chillingly indifferent pulsing basslines and percussion. Clocking in at just under 65 minutes, “Now Forever One’s” tracks are sequenced to take the listener through the full emotional arch of a 15-hour rave, with an emphasis on those moments of collective epiphany where heaving techno floors become the perfect microcosm for an idealistic and interconnected future. Interspersed with improvisational one-takes, the album submerges the listener in polyrhythmic meditations, of which “Streets” and “Nocturne” are standout examples, and soars on the vaulted synth melodies of future dance floor favourites “Melancholia” and “Dreams of Euphoria.” Sascha Ring of Apparat & Moderat puts it perfectly: “I played “Melancholia” the night I got it at Mutek Festival in Mexico City, and instantly knew it’ll shine on a big floor at the right time. It’s just the right balance of majestic melodic deepness.” The sounds are both triumphant and exploratory.

Greater than the sum of its parts, Bracht’s latest release hints at the artist’s emerging potential for nailing our moment’s zeitgeist; learning to live smaller while constantly seeking higher heights. Inhabiting the fertile ground between solitary rumination and dance-floor convenance, the launch of “Now Forever One’s” lunar expedition into the techno oblivion of pandemic lockdown is oddly fitting.

Saito 
Downfall / MP9
There is a new addition to the forge of talents of Mille Plateaux, a Japanese musician by the name of Saito whose album has been released on the label under the title of Downfall. After a whole series of releases under the signature tag clicks & cuts, there comes out a work, much more suited for a dance hall, that is different in terms of the genre from everything that has been published so far.

Like a bucket of ice-cold water poured over the head, erratic agressive hardcore rhythms pour all over the audience in the first track, interrupted only by grinding noises and minimalistic technogenic clicks.

Downfall won't fail to infect even the most experienced music connaisseur with its out-of-control energy, while offering a wide range of techniques: at times, robotic voices, one second long fragments of looped melodies and many other audio gimmicks.

Lena Saito (that is the author's name) is not afraid of conducting experiments in her chemical laboratory, freely mixing sound reagents without taking any precautions. It feels like, this new chemical substance, that she has been working on so thoroughly, contains quite a long list of ingredients, although its main component is the various rhythm breaks.

The synthesizer part of Red Hammer sounds in the best traditions of the acid style, and the rhythm section is akin to African tribal dances of the future. Downfall is absolutely unrelenting in its concept.

The melody of the composition Nucleosome is a little bit like the melancholic IDM of the 00s, finding itself secondary to the dominating, yet again convoluted rhythmical web meticulously woven by Saito.

This album can be definitely named as a big contender aspiring to start a new golden era of Mille Plateaux, and Saito as the hidden treasure of the label that can challenge even the veterans for the right to be the headliner.

Automatisme  
Alter / MP5
MP 5 Automatisme Alter- (DLP)
ALTER- : A REACTION TO THE ALTERMODERNISM IN SOUND ART
For the Automatisme - Alter- album. I am inspired by how the art historian Nicolas Bourriaud defines the Altermodernism. Bourriaud understands the term "Alter" as a way to mean "other". The altermodernism would be another modernity that is different from the avant-garde modernism and post-modernism. More precisely, this is a new paradigm from the XXIe century with alternative ways to motivate artists to be more radical in art by traveling in the physical and digital world, by cutting the frontiers and by creating other time lines. I apply the "alter" subject to time and to landscape and those, to the rhythmic and the ambient glitch music.

1- THE ALBUM HAS A RHYTHMIC SIDE AND A LANDSCAPE SIDE.
1- a : The rhythmic tracks are named Alter-Rate. That means that I offer other types of rhythms by calculating beats with time rate experimentations. The form of the rhytmic tracks, expresses a course, a wandering, which, in the altermodern life, is not just in a standard 4/4 , or just grid based or non-grid based, but it's in a complex hybrid of all of those.

1- b : The ambient tracks are named Alter-Scape. That means that I offer another type of landScapes by a paused temporality and not by a random time or by the time of the nature. Alter-Scape tracks mimic the saturated globalized soundscapes of the XXIe century.

2- THE GLOBALISED AND SATURATED TIME
For Bourriaud, the artists respond to a new globalised perception. They traverse a cultural landscape saturated with signs and create new pathways between multiple formats of expressions and communications1. The Alter- album tracks have saturated rhythms Rates and static ambient soundScapes. The specific context within which we live is the age of globalisation2. In this album, it means that globalised or always evolving rhythm Rates are in constant movements and are also different every time an Alter-Rate track is exported or performed. On the other hand, a globalised landScape is an ambient track with a motionless temporality. In the era of the altermodern, displacement has become a method of depiction3. The movement of the sound in the Alter- album is two sound spaces. The first is the rhythms that make time movement become apparent and the second is an ambient paused or static time that makes possible to feel and to analyze the movement effect of our surroundings.

3- THE CONSTANT TENSION STATE OF ART
For Gilles Deleuze, art is in a constant state of tension, in as much as it oscillates between the poles of chaos and order4. The Alter- album is a tension between chaos and order in rhythmic beat tracks and ambient soundscapes tracks. It is a deterritorialization of the rhythms and the ambiences of today's natural and digital landscapes and it brings them into the computer glitch music format.

By pushing new softwares to their limits, I push at the extreme the software capacity to calculate and to generate sounds. The Alter-Rate tracks are experimentations with time rates and rhythms with the use of probability and artificial intelligence based sequencers. The partition signal starts from a master sequencer that gets into all instruments on a track. Each instrument receives this signal and modulates it with other sequencers that are each programmed differently for every instrument. Finally, all the instruments signals return to a master output that contains a stutter effect. This master channel is sequencing all other channels into one single rhythm. In short, a single rate merges and expands into a vast archipelago of rates and the transformed signal becomes a new single rate. The Alter-Scape tracks are experimentations with midi triggers that give the sensation of a timelessness. Multiple reverb effects are also routed into each other to create soundscapes of continuity. About the type of sounds created in this album, I do experimentations with deep frequency modulation synthesises (FM) on all Alter-Rate and Alter-Scape tracks.

I put a few layers in the tracks to be able to focus on the time space and perception. The tracks are generative and every parameter uses probabilities to be programmed. This is something that was not possible some years ago. The computers are enough powerful to generate that now. I export many times the tracks and i push the computers to their limits by making hard for them to calculate and to generate the tracks with a deep, a pointillist and an extreme software programming. These techniques do different versions every time that I export or perform a track and in my opinion, that opens a fresh and innovative way to do new experimental club music and ambient music. The computer has its own limits too.

»Frozen Dust« is an album unified by the theme of »destruction« and »creation.« Inspired by the power of nature; we’ve expressed how we humans overcome the magnificent phenomena and impacts nature has on us - while it brings us joy, it can sometimes take away our lives and pleasures, We’ve incorporated this rather difficult theme by telling stories of fictional characters in the album; an adventurer in the Arctic region who confronts the threat of nature and survives between life and death, or a widow who never eases the pain of losing her sailor husband by a great storm in the Age of Discovery. »Frozen Dust« is our manifestation of »destruction« and »creation and each sound brings you the essence of it.

« Hôtel Costes presents... » is a collection of exclusive music recorded and mixed at STUDIO HC, somewhere in Hôtel Costes.

The Hotel Costes Presents… Studio HC series delivers its fifth long player late May, coming courtesy of A-Delta with their ‘Port De L’Arsenal’ album.

A-Delta is the collaborative guise of Studio HC’s driving force Adrien De Maublanc and jazz guitarist David Mechali, a sonic synergy which sees the pair skilfully fuse intricate electronics with soul-infused guitar work. The result is a dynamic twist on a classic downtempo aesthetic.

Throughout the project De Maublanc and Mechali meld together glitched out percussion, expansive delayed guitar licks and warm low-end tones. From the ever-unfolding, freeform jazz feel of tracks like opener ‘On A Renconte’, ‘L’Autre Soir’ and title-cut ‘Port De L’Arsenal’ through to more subtly nuanced contributions like ‘Charmant’, ‘Un Musicien’, ‘A Paris’ and ‘Une Chance’ the pair
deliver a touch of class and sophistication with a nod to classic jazz composition.

B. The Sound Of The Earth Part 2


Masomenos join forces with ambient artist E/Tape this April for the fifth EP in the Hôtel Costes Presents...Studio HC series.

Parisian duo Masomenos are the minds behind the fledgling Studio HC project, which has already gained widespread recognition for its contemporary electronic twist on a classical and jazz leaning aesthetic. Here we see the pair deliver a project alongside E/Tape, a Slovenian producer and DJ operating in the ambient and experimental scene and highly praised for his emotive, atmospheric style, which has seen him, play alongside the likes of Jan Jelinek, Midori Takada, Mark Ernestus and Jeff Mills.

‘The Sound Of The Earth’ is made up of two parts, both fourteen minutes long and split across the two sides of the record. ‘Part 1’ on the A-Side sees the duo fusing murky pad swells and modulating synths alongside vacillating percussion and thunderous low end pulses.

‘Part 2’ then continues the composition with the introduction of mediative voices, more percussive nuances, tripped-out resonant synth licks and gritty bass leads ebbing and flowing throughout the track sporadically.

Les Coeurs Brises 
On Met Les Voiles LP / HCLP004
Hôtel Costes Presents... continues its Studio HC project this March with the ‘On Met Les Voiles’ LP by Les
Coeurs Brisés.
For the fourth long player in the Studio HC series Hotel Costes Presents... introduces a new collaborative guise
from some of the key figures from the project, namely Adrien De Maublanc, Adrien Boisseau and Julien
Quentin who here form Les Coeurs Brisés. The project was born out of heartbreak as Boisseau and Quentin
both suffered breakups just before hitting the album was due to be recorded, the result is a raw, emotionally
fuelled long player much of which was captured in the moment with one take and embraces all the technical
glitches, grounding noise, unexpected quirks and nuances that come with recording on the fly.
‘On Met Les Voiles’ sees the trio once again exploring a modern classical/jazz meets electronic aesthetic,
ranging from delicate keys on closing cut ‘La Haut’ through to the more electronic leaning styles of ‘Dans La
Tempete’ and its swirling bass line and ‘De Bon Matin’ with its bumpy breaks, choppy bass stabs and airy piano
lines.
The artists also explore more glitched-out ambient leaning styles on tracks like opener ‘Tout Doux’ title-cut ‘On
Met Les Voiles’ and ‘Et Plonge’ which lay focus on textural synths, modular whirrs, minute percussive flutters
and stunning intricacies from the organic instruments. Once again Studio HC delivers a forward thinking take
on classic influences.

Flip Fantazia 
The Trip / ellonLP001
Fresh from their release on John Digweed's Bedrock
Records under their more covert Techno guise
'Cypherpunx' the Brighton based duo Flip Fantazia
unleash their debut album ‘The Trip’.
Touching on influences from Air to Bonobo, The xx
to DJ Shadow, ‘The Trip’ guides you down a road
less travelled meandering through Downtempo,
Electronica & Trip Hop with a few Jazzy twists &
turns.
Essentially Flip Fantazia is a meeting of two minds,
four hands, several synths, quite a few guitars,
some very clever computer software with a variety
of drum machines. The prolific duo spend most of
their time writing, recording, producing, mixing &
mastering original music down in an old bank vault
in Brighton... well, Hove actually! Their real names…
Douglas Horner & Tim Belcher.
Born from a project focussed mainly on music for
Sync, writing for Ninja Tune PM, Cavendish Music,
Delimusic, BMG PM & Deep East + more this is their
first artist album to be commercially released.
Their first brief for Ninja Tune’s Production Music
company was to create an authentic 60s sounding
Samba song and a Boogaloo / Salsa, both of which
appear on the Ninja Tune Latin Excursions album.
Along with a contemporary breaks / glitch remix of
the classical masterpiece Flight Of The Bumblebee
and a piece of funk with a foodie flavour for two
other Ninja Tune production music albums. Another
brief came in for some Australian influenced Beach
House from delimusic to be used on the BBC
Commonwealth Games Gold Coast 2018 coverage,
so out came the Didgeridoo and five new tracks
were born. Writing to brief is a delight & an
adventure for Flip Fantazia covering many genres
from authentic Samba to electro disco new-wave
post modern cosmic soul funk afro-boogie punk
alt+indie dance crossover and everything in
between! So it was tough to narrow The Trip down
to 10 original tracks which best illustrate the
authentic Flip Fantazia sound.
The Trip is a 10 track album which we hope
encapsulates just that with a vinyl release set for
May 29th on Ellon Music with pre-orders available

his viola to the studio for an early morning session and proposed an approach
consisting of layering several stems of him playing the instrument. Cloning him
over and over allowed them to create a polyphonic atmosphere that melted into a
giant meditation like theme mixed with pizzicato ballads. Boisseau then ended up
inviting his friend Laetitia, a cello player who had witnessed the creative process
and got enthusiastic to participate.
The result can be heard here across eight tracks all of which feature solely
acoustic instruments, the first of its kind in the Studio HC series. Across the
package you can hear haunting, subtly unfurling tracks like opener ‘Reveur’,
‘Double A’, ‘Passage-2’, ‘Faire De Son Mieux’ and closing track ‘Pas De
Supposition’ encompassing drawn out viola textures, mesmeric slowly bowed strings
from the Cello and a blooming dynamism throughout.
Further contributions come in the shape of title-track ‘Balade Toi’ with its
plucked strings, psychedelic resonance from a Sansula Kalimba and metallic
percussive chimes. ‘Le Bien Veilant’ and its otherworldly voice like chants,
vibrato textures and looping plucks and finally ‘La Parole Impeccable’ with its
cinematic, classical feel dynamically evolving and retracting through swirling
strings, vacillating viola tones and airy wind pulsations across five and half
minutes.

Hôtel Costes presents... introduces JAC this February for ‘STUDIO HC#04’
JAC stands as an offshoot of the Midminuit project which was released earlier in the Studio HC series. The story
goes that Midiminuit member Jonatan Levi had to leave the recording process for a day, leaving the others -
Julien, Adrien and Ceasar with a whole day in the studio which naturally led to experimentation and later the
formation of JAC, an acronym for the trio involved.
‘Take Off’ leads the project, a cinematic twelve and a half minutes of ethereal synth textures, swirling dubby
echoes, bright emotive piano chords and vacillating bass tones. Up next is ‘In’, this time round embracing a
tension building sub swell and crunchy, modulating drums at its core whilst heavily reverberated jazz piano
licks and hazy effects flow throughout the composition.
Opening the B-side is ‘Out’, laid out over five minutes with a snaking resonant synth lead and mind-bending
drum and synth oscillations before ‘Landing’ concludes the release with a heady, pulsating sub bass line,
resonant flutters and expansive pad swells.
BAKK 2019-12-31 12" LP Electronica - Ambient IMPORT
Ulla Straus / Oceanic 
Plafond 4 / BAKKplafond4
The fourth Plafond sees fine-crafted contrasting pieces complement each other in courtesy of Ulla Straus and Oceanic. Along the wide arbitrary landscape of listening or 'ambient' music, it is a delight to have two artists, separated by the vast Atlantic, contributing quite opposite interpretations of such to the series. Perceptual time feels as a recurrent theme which binds them, albeit in a whole different modus operandi. In her iconic tactile productions, Straus excavates levels of advanced musical complexity in the seemingly most simple. Throughout two tracks her crude and beautiful technique riffles, compositions that remain prone to the transient, combining field recordings with morphing saxophone and guitar. This is deeply evocative music that turns its recipient into a mode of contemplation. 'I Forgot to Take a Picture' breathes melancholic romanticism, 'Becoming Warm' feels lorn yet hopeful. Pastoral haze over a rouge-tainted barren, the crackling insides of a wooden forest house. Picturesque and minimalist, Pennsylvania's Straus manages to temporarily stop the sand from gravitating downwards. Oceanic antagonises Straus with the triptych 'Three Sides of a Shell', recalling different emotions adhering to the fourth dimension. As a performing artist Oceanic masters the element of suspense. Here, over the course of nineteen minutes, a three-note sequence is explored within the producers imaginatory, chapterised, providing moments to navigate through his fictitious galaxy. Stuttering melodies across azure waters, synthesised bleeps as flickering stars over a moonlit mountain pass. Oceanic's music feels advanced through actively incorporating contemporary futurism, whilst never losing the glacial glance that is so familiar to its early nineties foregoers. It is as if listening to 'Three Sides...' heightens the senses, towards possibility, innovation even, triggering illusions of time dilation, shattering the hourglass. Comes in hand printed dreamy, pink sleeve, including Obi-strip, by the BAKK Innerspace Ink Station.

« Hôtel Costes presents... » is a collection of exclusive music recorded at Studio HC, the hotel studio, and composed by Masomenos.

The third maxi by Masomenos, STUDIO HC #03 is a fugue composed by Adrien de Maublanc, which marks a continuity in the hypnotic’s signature of the music Masomenos imagined for Hotel Costes.

 Doors features the famous french musician  Adrien Boisseau, here playing his Alto Viola…. 
 
Masomenos - Composed of Joan Costes and Adrien de Maublanc, has a long collaboration with the Hôtel Costes music history. They have been in charge of the Costes presents serie, a minimal electronic oriented serie of albums by glacial, seuil and themselves, that hosted their first music project called “Costes presents BON VOYAGE”. Since two years now, they have located their studio in the Hôtel Costes extension that have been on works, and named the place Studio HC. 

Adrien Boisseau  - When he discovers the music at the age of five, he almost immediately is decided to become a musician. At that time, he loves his instrument, the viola, just as much as the piano and singing. After attending the music school of Nevers and the Regional Conservatory of Saint-Maur, Adrien integrates the CNSM of Paris at the age of 14 becoming a student of Jean Sulem. In 2009, aged 17, Adrien picks First Prize as well as the Audience Award at the International Max Rostal Competition and is subsequently invited to make his debut at the Philharmonie in Berlin in 2011, with the Deutsches Symphonie Orchester Berlin conducted by Krzysztof Urbanski.After getting his diploma with the congratulations of the jury at the National Conservatory in Paris, Adrien decides to continue his studies with Tabea Zimmermann in Berlin. Her teaching focuses style and a harmonious approach of the instrument. At the same time, Adrien is successful in several competitions, in Tokyo in 2012 (4th Prize and Prize of the Public) and in Moscow in 2013 (2nd Prize). He starts to be a soloist with orchestras such as the Tokyo Metropolitan Orchestra, Kammerakademie Potsdam, Münchener Kammerorchester, the Moscow Soloists, Sinfonieorchester Liechtenstein, the Zagreb Soloists... From 2013, Adrien improves his skills with prestigious teachers of the Kronberg Academy: András Schiff, Nobuko Imaï, Steven Isserlis, Christoph Eschenbach, Ivry Gitlis. He studies at inspiring academies such as Prussia Cove in Cornwall or Verbier in Switzerland, two magic places where he develops his musical ideas and meets the best young soloists of his generation. For Adrien, since long, chamber music represents the opportunity to share the most intimate feelings. In 2014, Adrien wins the title of Young Artist of the Year of the International Classical Music Awards (ICMA). At Warsaw's prestigious Philharmonic Hall he plays the Romance by Bruch with the Polish Iuventus Orchestra conducted by José Maria Florencio. The jury says: "At his young age, the French viola player Adrien Boisseau is, quite apart from his technical skills and the beauty of his sound, a singularly mature and introspective musician." Adrien's life completely changes in 2015 when he is asked to join the famous Quatuor Ebène, one of the foremost string quartets in the world. He appears with the quartet in the most famous halls (Théâtre des Champs-Elysées, Wigmore Hall, Concertgebouw Amsterdam, Carnegie Hall) and with the most renowned musicians (Mitsuko Uchida, Matthias Goerne, Anne Sofie von Otter, Nicholas Angelich, Martin Fröst...). In the same year, Oehms Classics publishes his first CD, a Schumann recital with pianist Gaspard Dehaene.


About Hotel Costes - Since the last opus of the Hôtel Costes famous collection, after more than 15 volumes carefully selected and mixed by stephane Pompougnac, there still was a true and huge demand from the audience to deliver new volume. Avoiding the trap of intenting to re-create an artificial make-up release with a Pompougnac copycat, the hotel has developed a strong presence on the streaming platform such as Apple music on which they release monthly playlist and digital selection (Radio Costes). They also have a Spotify platform that allows the audience to rediscover all the legacy collection while being connected with what is played live at the Hotel, curated by Studio HC in collaboration with WYM, the agency who tailors the music selection at the hotel. 

Now the hotel, which is to expand in 2019, is enriched with a music production studio / room and will therefore presents his own sound on vinyl while keeping the listeners fed with a unique curation through Apple Music and Spotify.

« Hôtel Costes presents... » is a collection of exclusive music recorded or mixed at Studio HC, the hotel studio, and composed by Adrien de Maublanc guests. This unique studio with exceptional gears craft the sound of MidiMinuit.

The second opus, Round the clock, by Midiminuit, is a modern album where classical and jazz music meet modular synths.
MidiMinuit is a collaborative project between pianist  Julien Quentin, bass player Yonatan Levi and electronic musicians Cesar Merveille & Adrien de Maublanc. Four experts in their respective fields are harmoniously combining their music creating a new entity.
Three days, twelve hours of music per day, from 12pm to 12am. This was the primary rule of the jam sessions, giving the band its name. This was the first time all four musicians came together. In those three days, there was no rehearsals. Every piece was improvised, recorded and it was moved on to the next track. Bringing those world-class musicians together had the potential to create something unique. And so… ROUND THE CLOCK was born!

Cesar Merveille is known for his collaborations with labels such as Cadenza and Visionquest, and has been a major player in the electronic scene for the past 15 years touring extensively as a DJ, and has now started his own imprint Roche Madame. He started early on collaborating with musicians from different backgrounds. Combining electronic music with acoustic instruments has been part of his defining style since the early days. His love for modular synthesisers brings a unique colour to the sound and groove of MidiMinuit.

Julien Quentin – Born in Paris, graduated from the Juilliard School in New York, pianist Julien Quentin performed in all major concert venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Berlin Philharmonie or the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Julien’s interest after 20 years of classical music on the road is opening up to projects ranging from improvisation to producing electronic music and could be heard live at Sonar Off and Amsterdam Dance Event, or in Berlin clubs where he is now based. His remarkable depth of musicianship and distinct clarity of sound coupled with flawless technique bring its distinctive classical influence to MidiMinuit.

Yonatan Levi  – Born in Tel-Aviv, Israel, Yonatan Levi first started with classical guitar and switched to classical stand up bass studies from the Israeli Conservatory of Music in Tel Aviv. He then got a full scholarship at Berkley College of Music. He has been playing alongside some of Jazz greats like Avishai Cohen and Eddie Henderson. In the past few years, since moving to Berlin, Levi has ventured into the vast electronic music world, becoming an avid vinyl collector as well as collaborating with electronic music producers who are known for their cross-genre, multi disciplinary approaches. Bringing all that jazz to the band. 

Adrien de Maublanc – Adrien is well known as a producer and sound engineer as one half of the Masomenos duo which is a productive partnership with graphic designer and DJ Joan Costes. They have a long collaboration with the Hôtel Costes music history. In fact, they have been in charge of the Costes presents serie, a minimal electronic oriented serie of albums by glacial, seuil and themselves. Since two years now, they have located their studio in the Hôtel Costes extension that have been on works, and named the place Studio HC. It is in this unique studio that MidiMinuit has been mixed. Maublanc is now part on his own several bands that like midiminuit will be released on Hotel Costes Presents label.

« Hôtel Costes presents... » is a collection of exclusive music recorded at Studio HC, the hotel
studio.
The second maxi, STUDIO HC #02 by Midiminuit is a modern trip where classical and jazz music
meet modular synths.
Four tracks as a teaser of their upcoming album.
MidiMinuit is a collaborative project between pianist Julien Quentin, bass player Yonatan
Levi and electronic musicians Cesar Merveille & Adrien de Maublanc. Four experts in their
respective fields are harmoniously combining their music creating a new entity.
From the very first recording sessions in a ephemeral studio in Berlin, a set of rules has been
made, the first one being working from 12pm to 12am, which gave birth to the name ‘MidiMinuit’,
meaning “midday midnight”.
The result of this unique and unusual formation is an elegant and minimalistic constellation where
space is given to let the music breathe. All the tracks on this first album were improvised, catching
the essence and the fragility of the original jams.
Cesar Merveille is known for his collaborations with labels such as Cadenza and Visionquest, and
has been a major player in the electronic scene for the past 15 years touring extensively as a DJ,
and has now started his own imprint Roche Madame. He started early on collaborating with
