With a pair of MK2s and a microphone Jean-Baptiste Bressy delivers a wild mix of electro pop, techno, punk, hip-hop and hardcore.

He is also a producer, with a 2006 release on the French label Karat (who also release ark

(KARAT 27). Bressy’s various monikers also appear in the credits of records on the following labels: Tigerbeat6, Alien8 Recordings, Ed Banger Records and Arcade Mode.
