A pivotal figure in the French electronic music scene Arnaud Rebotini burst onto the scene in 1997 with the release of Black Strobe's 'Paris Acid City'. Subsequent releases on labels such as Trevor Jackson's Output established Black Strobe as the dark mirror image to much of their homeland's smooth disco influenced house.
A restless spirit and never one to sit still Arnaud career has taken him from Black Strobe's gothic rock tinged 'Burn Your Own Church' to his more experimental compositions as Zend Avesta and stark industrial and EBM tinged techno he's released under his own name.
Now following the critically acclaimed solo release 'Pagan Dance Move' (releases on The Hacker & Gesaffelstein's ZONE Records) Arnaud has returned to the Black Strobe name and gone in search of the Bayou disco.
With a new album out later in 2013, 'The Girl From The Bayou' is our first taste of Arnaud's latest direction and sees him going where few other artists of his stature would even think to tread let alone dare, producing a stunning mix of swamp rock, gospel blues and disco house.
First Light is releasing their debut album, Fallacy Fantasy. The duo, made up of Hieroglyphics members Pep Love and Opio, has released a new video for the single "Los Lobos" to coincide with the albums release. Both the duo and the album were born out of Hiero's "celebration of spontaneous musical collaboration," and as anticipation for the album's release has continued to grow through the previous release of videos for singles "Hold On" and "Lighters," First Light is now excited to deliver the full album to fans via their label Hiero Imperium.
