Soul Machine, is a French Electronic Music producer and an Electronic Instruments designer. He has worked as a solo electronic musician and as a remixer for artists such as Yann Destal (Modjo), Nyls or Missill.
Formerly guitarist, he’s been involved in various projects and bands through the years, exploring 70’s Rock, Metal, Dub and Trip Hop. He then found in electro music the perfect way to gather all he experimented before.
Soul Machine gets some notoriety in 2010 after he released a non-official remix of the song “Blackened” by Metallica. Impressed, Radio Metal devotes him its entire “High Hopes” show of December.
From then on, his constant need for perfection and his powerful live performances brought him glorious supports such as Tony Visconti (legendary producer of David Bowie, T-Rex and Iggy Pop) or Matthieu CHEDID (-M-).
In 2012, He gets himself noticed by the hyperactive DJ Girl MISSILL who asks him to produce some tracks for her upcoming album. The same year, he makes the buzz playing a tribute to the French duo Justice on the massive pipe organ of the Saint-Joseph Basilica in Grenoble, Gaspard AUGE (Justice) himself approved the performance.
He composes in 2013 the Soundtrack of a film directed in Fukushima by the charity/fashion project “Silk Me Back in Japan”, helping the victims of the tragedy. In parallel, the franco-italian singer NYLS, asks him to remix his single “Crazy”. The release hits the 8th position of the iTunes TOP10 in only two hours, beating artists such as Eminem, Katy Perry and Miley Cirus. The remix is featured in the Soundtrack of the movie “Yellow” directed by Rene Zhang the following year.
In 2014, Yann Destal, mythic singer of Modjo, calls him to remix his single “Walk With Me”.
SOUL MACHINE releases the same year a double EP Phanerosphene (I&II), with an art cover designed by the Psychedelic Artist Jeff Hopp.
He releases in 2015 the song “Wonderkids” co-produced with the czech producer ATREY. The EP “Wonderkids Remixes” is released the following year featuring glorious remixers such as Superfunk or Mozambo.
After a 3 years standby, Soul Machine introduces in 2018 his own handmade instruments under the name of FAR BEYOND PERCEPTION. The MS-X analog synthesizer and his Mellotron M400 replica are massively supported all around the world.
In 2019, Rosko John, funding member of the british band ARCHIVE discovers Soul Machine’s work and wishes to performon his next EP expected before the end of the year.

+/-@nne, Nomad Sight Corp/LCDS Event :
“Soul Machine est en 6 dimensions a minima mais j’en oublie volontairement pour simplifier l’équation qu’il incarne.
Culture musicale XXL + pratique de plusieurs intru’ + maîtrise de la technologie + intelligence + talent + feelings = l’Art de la mixologique incarné.
Oubliez l’étiquette « club » qui colle généralement aux DJ, Soul Machine est un artiste de scène. Ses concerts, véritables performances, vous transmettent une énergie indescriptible. Le loup sort du bois, le Diable de sa boîte et vous voilà transformé l’espace d’un set en Demon-Garou déchaîné.
De quoi faire danser un cactus pétrifié !”
