Mondkopf is the pseudonym of French producer Paul Régimbeau who makes suffocating, doom laden electronic beats. He has just released his third (which you can check at the bottom of this page) album and it’s choc-full of chest crushing bass and bastardised electronics. His live show is equally frenetic with lasers, scatter-gun rhythms and lots and lot of black. We saddled up with Mondkopf to take a ride on the 10 x 4.
Favourite part of the day to create?
Right after taking a nap, when everything is clear in my head and everything falls into place
Method or madness?
A subtile mix of the two !
First musical love?
Last musical love?
One thing you would live without if you could?
I don’t play an instrument but I think electric guitar or just guitar is in most of my favourite songs. I’ll add the organ because it’s such a powerful instrument
A place to create?
In my dreams, the best place would be in a house in front of the ocean but for now I have to cope with my bedroom in Pigalle, Paris.
Last thing that inspired you?
French producer Mondkopf will release his second album in October and on first impressions we can report that Rising Doom is a suffocating, intoxicating brew of inky atmospheres that have been squeezed through an industrial grinder with added drum machine and rave-laser function. It’s heavy, it’s bleak and it sounds pretty damn fierce.
Check out this immersive video of Mondkopf performing his new live set and watch how the audience respond to Mondkopf’s enthusiastic performance. The French it seems are too cool to even move.
