Piercing Highs: Mondkopf's Favourite Albums
The Quietus , May 28th, 2015 12:44

Fittingly enough for a man who makes music of a decidedly bracing bent - be it the hulking techno of Mondkopf or the grindcore-inspired electronics of Extreme Precautions - French producer Paul Régimbeau's top 13 LPs are a suitably heavyweight suite. Brace yourself...


Keith Fullerton Whitman - Multiples
I spend an awful lot of time on message boards, sharing references and discussing them. This is how I met Guillaume, with whom I'm running the label, and Amédée who does all these projects we are releasing on In Paradisum (Somaticae, Insiden, Roger West). And that's how I also discovered this record. I love the daring structure. These were the first experimental modular tracks I was exposed to - back then I knew nothing about it. The record starts cold, then mid-time piano, guitar, organs are kicking in, in this style which resonated with Glass, Reich or Raymond Scott. To me, these are very bright, warm songs.
