Christmas falls on the 3rd November this year for electro fans. Because each time Erwan Castex a.k.a. Rone drops an album it really is a gift. This disc comes four years after Tohu Bohu (his magnificent missive written and posted from Berlin, which allowed him to make a name for himself and impose a style of his own) and two years after the beautiful and bewildering album Creatures. This gifted sound engineer has now added another floor to his electronic tower of Babel. And yes, it is indeed this famous construction from The Book of Genesis that is the best symbol for his work. Far from the dancefloor, Rone’s music is a multistory building in which we have already met people as diverse as Etienne Daho, François Marry without her Atlas Mountains, the unusual cellist Gaspar Claus, the equally elusive pianist Bachar Mar-Khalifé, Bryce Dessner from The National or even the avant-garde Japanese trumpeter Toshinori Kondo… For this fourth work, whose liner notes bear the name of Michel Gondry and his son Paul, Rone has assembled John Stanier, Claus and Dessner from the group Vacarme once again, as well as the slam poet Saul Williams, the quirky Baxter Dury, the Israeli Noga Erez and Kazu Makino from Blonde Redhead. Taken independently, each piece on Mirapolis differs from the next. But Rone, being a sound architect, manages to homogenize all these sound textures and ambiences to make for a disorienting sensory trip. Sometimes electro is not the dominant genre but this doesn’t matter as it’s always Rone who comes out on top. © MD/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
French-born, Berlin-bred producer Rone creates music that slowly drifts into the unknown and otherworldly, with the scratchy, Aphex Twin-like flecks of glitch and other post-laptop touches gently messing with time and space. Previous work with the Antipop Consortium (the single "Let's Go"), Com Truise (a tour), and the National (soundscapes provided for their album Trouble Will Find Me) can be spiritually linked to this mesmerizing third effort, but Creatures also suggests that this tasteful and informed artist sneaks off to give Coldplay and their ilk a non-flippant listen, gaining inspiration from arena pop's ability to not just float, but soar. As such, "Sir Orfeo" with vocalist Sea Oleena, calmly unfurls into a siren song that's either Cocteau Twins- or Sia-sized, while the off-kilter and kickin' "Freaks" sounds as if Boards of Canada got a gig composing for Pixar as Tim Burton took over the reins of the studio's Toy Story series. Hollywood soundtrack headhunters should jump to the cyber spy thriller "Acid Reflux" with Toshinori Kondo, or the wide open and Western "Elle" featuring Bryce Dessner from the National, while heady folks can check "Quitter La Ville" for something that's close to Klauz Schulze vs. Jacques Brel. Creatures is an album as wonderful as it is unclassifiable, but it is aimed at those who like warmth with their edgy art. Subtitle it "free your mind, and your soul will follow" and then follow through with some sweet surrender. ~ David Jeffries
