Ivan Smagghe (Deezer) en Flow Festival Mallorca

Durante mucho tiempo fue considerado el tío más cool de la escena francesa. Un mago en el estudio y un animal nocturno. Un fan metalero y un adicto a la música disco que trabajó durante un tiempo en la tienda que Rough Trade tiene en París (cuando empezó a pinchar se le conoció con el sobrenombre de Ivan Rough Trade). Un hombre clásico y una dancefloor diva. El 2004 fue su año gracias a sus sesiones en directo y a la capacidad ilimitada para sorprender en formato Cd mix, dio primero en el sello Eskimo con su Death Disco, para repetir en el calvo una vez más con Suck my deck en React. También la armó gorda una mañana de agosto en el after Freezer de Benicàssim ahora le toca liarla en Mallorca en el Flow Festival.

ENG: France’s most wanted radio host and selector, Ivan Smagghe stands at the crossroads between glamorous parisian hype and musical integrity. His genre defying/defining production work originally in Black Strobe and now in It’s A Fine Line (who have recently finished Battant’s second LP, As I Ride with No Horse) has connected him to and garnered the praise of (amongst others) James Murphy, Trevor Jackson, Ata, Optimo and the aforementioned Weatherall. All fellow crusaders in the fight to prove that electronic music can be so much more than a one dimensional soundtrack for a night on the lash. The success of his musical blog ‘a few things from Ivan Smagghe’ has generated a compilation series of edits for Paris uber-fashion store Colette. The first volume sold out in a couple of weeks. His project with Tim Paris, It’s A Fine Line, has already put out numerous remixes (from Superpitcher to the XX) and releases that can’t be pigeonholed (electro rockabilly on Kompakt to italo rickety disco on Marketing Music). Their new studio is now fully set for original music, remixes and production. Expect a lot more from them in 2012. Aside from his A&R role for now 10 years old label Kill The DJ (who have released the first EP of RMVN, Ivan’s project with Roman Flugel), Ivan has also started solo work (a noted remix for Parisian label Meant) as well as more planned collaborations with musical friends (Ewan Pearson and Tiga being first on the list).
