The Toxic Avenger - Arkham, Shanghai


The Rolling Stone magazine named him “one of the year’s most influential electronic artists,” while Justice, Simian Mobile Disco, Digitalism and LCD Soundsystem ranked the rest of the list. The Toxic Avenger sits tight in the seat of the world’s top electronic music producers working with a range of artists, including Ladytron, Late of the Pier, and Chromeo. The Toxic Avenger has also hit the international stage with acts such as MSTRKRFT, Late of the Pier, Black Lips, Yelle, Crystal Castles, Vitallic, and Public Enemy.

His sound is infectiously catchy. Some notable remixes that he has been involved in are his works with Sexual Earthquake in Kobe’s “Love with Chloe Sevigny,” “Dance Among the Ruins” by Tommie Sunshine ft. Peaches, and Ladytron’s “Ghosts.”

Signed onto IHEARTCOMIX Records, he continues to dominate the growing independent electro-dance scene churning the all-night-long parties all around the world. Be sure to come out and throwdown.

法国Electro/Thrash风格DJ/制作人Simon Delacroix化名The Toxic Avenger独步舞池,喜好融合多元化的音乐元素。2007年在洛杉矶的Iheartcomix厂牌开始职业生涯,三张出色的EP“Toxic is Dead”、“Superheros”、“Bad Girls Need Love Too”和The Bloody Beetroot的remix版本“Escape”让Toxic拥有了不错的人气。其中S.T.D.在2009年便第一次带The Toxic Avenger来到上海演出,引得全城电子乐迷争相前来。
结束当年的远东巡演后不久The Toxic Avenger又被签到法国独立厂牌Roy Music,与法国顶尖嘻哈歌手Orelsan合作了一张在电视和广播中被反复播放的单曲“N’importe Comment”,取得巨大成功。随后第一张专辑“Angst”邀请了Alien Summer与Annie两位歌手参与,这张大获全胜的作品全面展现了Toxic的创作功力,带领人们进入他的黑暗世界,被“Spin”杂志评价为“有魄力和野心的电子流行混合体”。专辑中的曲目“Angst: Two”还被选为尼桑逍客的欧洲区官方广告曲。之后展开的世界巡演几乎走遍了每个角落,其中包括了Transmusicales、Bourges、Solidays、Marsatac、La Cigale等音乐节,以及从欧美到亚太的DJ Set演出。他的音乐才华还展现在与Ladytron、Chromeo、Late of the Pier等艺人的remix合作。“Rolling Stone”杂志将Toxic列入了传统的“Artist to Watch”栏目,称其为“The Next Big Thing!”。

今年年初The Toxic Avenger公布了新专辑“Romance & Cigarettes”即将发行,这张由Dax制作的大作由众多同行好手加盟完成,专辑中的单曲“To The Sun”作为首发单曲正在热力放送中。专辑发行前夜在上海的演出让人振奋,在全新装修的Arkham提前进入Toxic创造的新世界。
