Watch Joachim Garraud & Alesia’s Music Video for “Hook”

Tim Gauthier

The culminating months of 2011 saw Joachim Garraud hunkered down in his Paris studio with freshly discovered production trio, Alesia. Amidst his global tour schedule, Joachim collaborated with his three fellow Frenchmen on a ‘made-for-the-dancefloor’ release, debuting a new aural direction from Joachim – seamlessly blending Electro, Techno, Progressive House, and Dubstep.

‘Hook,’ the first single off of the upcoming Hillside West EP, is a perfect dichotomy of a House anthem married with snarling bass never heard on any other Joachim Garraud production.

‘Hook’ has been introduced with a brand new video, featuring Joachim and the entire Alesia crew. The video starts from their studio in France, from the inception of the track carrying through it’s introduction on the dance floor. Watch as their antics take hold of the city streets to several sold out shows across the country.

Atari Teenage Riot – The Tumblr

Tim Gauthier

Alec Empire of Atari Teenage Riot, with semi-frequent updates from the rest of the crew & management, have an official Tumblr page setup, voicing all matters- from political to band related. In more recent context, Alec has taken on his stance on the 1999 Sony Advertisement where they impermissibly used an Atari Teenage Riot track in South East Asia:

“I felt used, exploited, ripped off…everything that a sensitive artist like myself would feel in that situation… Even though the thing got settled in court kind of, I never felt they paid what they owed.

So when the request for the Sony Vita ad landed on my lap, I put ‘Black Flags’ into it…it was all hectic and they okayed it.”

In the end, Atari Teenage Riot & Alec Empire place most of their financial gain into the #FreeAnons, Anonymous Solidarity Network; a support system dedicated to assisting those who are facing prosecution for alleged involvement in “Anonymous” activities, wherein came the “Black Flags” single.

Find out more on the movement by visiting their official Tumblr page here, and http://freeanons.org/ to support a good cause!

Atari Teenage Riot Re-Cap From The Garage, London

Tim Gauthier

As reviewed by Artrocker Magazine, check out the official re-cap from Atari Teenage Riot’s performance at The Garage in London.

“Being asked to review ATR is a daunting thing, because their influence is perhaps something that won’t be known for years – so you end up reviewing the NOW while wishing you could view the WHOLE DAMN THING. Ah, Fft. Maybe that’s all we can do.

MUSIC IS A WEAPON!
