A Night Of Music From Syl Kougaï

(Hear His New Track From Touched 3)

Syl Kougaï is a French electronic music producer who lives in the south of France.

He composes radically chiseled electronica with very unique sounds. Elaborating them with extreme demands, he has the passion for complex synthesis and deluding acoustics: Molten steel squirted above organic rhythmic structures, acid drops instilled inside food of modulations, bended titanium basses, endless rope mechanism triggered inside the skull.

Syl Kougaï has released his third full studio album ΙΧΘΥΣ in a joint effort between the well respected labels Schematic Records (USA) and Hymen Records (DE). Described as « Immense and warped » by the Stalker RadioShow and selected as the best album of 2015 by DSPH Sounds, Dmute.net, LostinSound and Touched Music, it is no exaggeration to say that this opus has shaken the world of IDM. Since its release, ΙΧΘΥΣ has been supported by renowned artists Plaid (WARP Records) who played several tracks in their recent DJ sets and publicly commented « It is indeed a most excellent album! ». The double vinyl version is coming on Schematic this summer.

Since then, strong rumors have spread over the web about the track Faucon Titane on the successful compilation Covert of the label Touched Music. Autechre track? Syl Kougaïs one? Obviously, fans of Kougaï seems to have closed the debate.



What we know with certainty is that he will appear on the next compilation Touched 3 alongside some of the biggest names in the electronic scene, with an exclusive track. Scheduled for late July.

Syl Kougaï is currently playing with his total real-time sound generation system all over Europe with scorching new material and has shared the stage with Arovane, Richard Devine, Monolake, Roel Funcken, Monolog, Lakker, Flint Kids... One point is clear, his performances generate the respect and admiration of his fellow musicians.

His next apparition will be for the Krake festival in Berlin, Saturday 30th July. Brace yourself for some new exciting and uncompromising music.

      hey WATMM, thanks for your help and interesting ideas about IDM/braindance the last time I posted a topic. The feedback was humbling for the research, plus the sarcasm and general lels were pretty helpful too lmao

      If you are interested in helping further, I put together a quick, structured form to more easily track some community data for both idm/braindance related queries and representational data:


      If you choose to participate, you can be sure that all of the data is anonymous and no information is tracked beyond your answers (no emails, names, anything that specifically identifies you). Since this project is limited in its scope, WATMM is one of two online communities associated with idm/braindance/post-techno, whatever it may be called, to be analyzed for this research. The other is r/idm on reddit, mostly because these two forums are the ones I have most experience with/are most active.

      Plus, any more thoughts or questions on the research are more than welcome in this thread

      If you're curious to know where my research has taken me since I last engaged with you: The topic of what 'IDM' is became more necessary than I had intended, mainly because, as many of you pointed out, it's exhausted but there is still obvious uncertainty. I have come to the conclusion that while 'IDM' was historically used to classify certain artists and post-rave, explorative techno music, its definition has changed in the last twenty years to more accurately represent a philosophy behind making electronic music, or as some people have noted "a way of life". Not to mention 'IDM' was coined by Americans in an interpretation of what Warp was doing with AI. The tongue-and-cheek just got out of hand in the mainstream ('mainstream' being the commercial sector of widely accessible music, image, and other media). The term has controversy, and discussing it is exhausting, but it's still used popularly and has an interesting history to it. but enough of that
      There is much more to the research, mostly exploring how 'popular music' is much different today than it was 10, 20 and especially 30 years ago. There is some rave history involved and the transition from subcultural movement to commercial enterprise (raves > clubbing), and how electronic music blew up mainstream. Also I touch on online fandom and 'prosuming', as today us as fans add to the narrative of artists and engage with them in the digital space. if any of this interests you, feel free to comment or PM
      anyways, thanks again

      Crunchy-glitchy melodic electronics harking back to early 2000s IDM. Highly recommended.

      Beautiful classic dancefloor IDM leaning EP (think B12, Stasis, Degiorgio) from iNFO. Highly recommended.
