In a 12 year career, Erwan Castex aka RONE has established himself as a major talent on the French electronic music scene.With six studio albums on the Parisian label InFiné and numerous collaborations (Saul Williams, The National, John Stanier, Kazu Makino, Georgia, Jean-Michel Jarre, Jehnny Beth, Etienne Daho, Yael Naim, film director Michel Gondry, or science fiction writer Alain Damasio…), RONE has been able to constantly step out of his comfort zone by going beyond the boundaries of electronic music.At the beginning of 2017, he filled the Philharmonie de Paris for a unique and singular creation, which made him win the Prix des Indés (Indie Award) in the Live category. At the end of 2018, during the web & television series “Variations“, RONE surprised the audience by offering a rereading of works by the great British composer Benjamin Britten, accompanied on stage by the Maîtrise de Radio France and its choir director Sofi Jeannin.In 2019, RONE records “Motion“, a 12-minute electro-classical piece in which the dreamy arpeggios of his machines blend perfectly with the sound of the instruments of the 85 classical musicians of the orchestra Les Siècles conducted by François-Xavier Roth.Invited by the renowned Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris for a carte blanche in the spring of 2020, RONE and the collective (LA)HORDE present the music and dance piece “Room With A View“ with 20 dancers from the Ballet National de Marseille. This was followed by the release of “Room With A View“, his fifth entirely instrumental album.During the long weeks of lockdown and at the time of social distancing, RONE decides to launch the “Rone & Friends“ project, by inviting 14 artist friends to put their voices on his compositions. One month before the release of the album, RONE won the César for the best soundtrack for the film “La Nuit Venue“, which marked his entry into cinema. More recently, his soundtrack for Jacques Audiard’s film “Les Olympiades“ was selected for the César 2022.

At the core of Bottler’s diverse, multifaceted output is a foundation built on a brotherhood of sorts. The New York-based duo, Pat Butler and Phil Shore, are childhood friends whose bond is akin to that of blood relatives. Their parents are best friends and they grew up side by side, developing their deep love for music together; sharing discoveries and inspirations, learning to play and perform, and nurturing their creativity together. Now formally ordained as Bottler, they channel their eclectic tastes into a sound that encapsulates the love and trust that forms the foundation of the friendship. The duo blend a myriad styles to create songs that emanate warmth, joy, sorrow, pain and the full spectrum of human emotion. It’s electronic music inspired by a broad range of artists, all connected by their liberated approach to production. Bold, unpretentious, raw, dynamic and highly creative, Bottler are a formidable duo poised to ignite the dance floor with their kaleidoscopic collection of sounds.
