The Micronauts is the leftfield techno and acid house project of French DJ and producer Christophe Monier. His new album “Head Control Body Control” is a flawlessly produced and utterly engrossing multi-genre project, drawing influence from his long journey through the electronic music scene and taking cues from both sonic pioneers and current innovators.

The lead single “Acid Party” was released earlier this summer: a 9-minute, mind-bending voyage through The Micronauts’ singular take on techno that was awarded the accolade of Mixmag’s Tune of the Month in August.

“Head Control Body Control” is The Micronauts’ third album, and the first for more than a decade since 2007’s “Damaging Consent”. Ranging from leftfield techno and acid to house, bass, electronica and indie dance, it is an extraordinarily rich and diverse record; one that reveals fresh nuances and sonic delights with every visit, taking cues from artists such as Aphex Twin, Maceo Plex, Carl Craig, Maya Jane Coles and DJ Pierre.

“I set out to produce an album that really stands the test of time, and took inspiration from classic albums from the 70s that were made with care, showed a great quality of writing, were highly personal, unique, eclectic and trans-genre. I truly believe that ‘Head Control Body Control’ is my best work to date, and that it is accessible not only for connoisseur and electronic music heads, but also for people on the outskirts of house and techno – people that come both from electronic and rock music backgrounds.”
The Micronauts

Good things take time, and for three years The Micronauts stayed locked in his studio, laser-focused on the music, avoiding any and all distractions. Drawing on his influences from a variety of genres and scenes – his intimate knowledge of house, techno, garage and their countless variations – the resulting album embodies the universal and the timeless to achieve a sound that nevertheless pushes boundaries and sits right at the cutting edge of electronic production.

Not only bringing together different genres, but also entire musical eras, Head Control Body Control is an ambitious project that for existing fans will without doubt prove worth the ten-year wait. The Micronauts’ distinct palette – made of experimental tones, physical grooves and surgical precision – is immediately evident. The original ethic of techno, creating new sounds and new forms while using the latest accessible technology, is respected, with The Micronauts simultaneously paying homage to the hedonistic and revolutionary utopian atmosphere that permeates warehouse and rave parties.

Bold, inimitable, highly personal and yet universally relevant, Head Control Body Control is a truly stunning achievement, and one that will surely stand among the best electronic album releases of 2018.
