The "noise" field of the collective Coax and of Carton Records is appropriating the berliner club culture to blended it with video game soundtrack from 80's. "Parquet" is a fantasy. The one of making yhe audience sweat on the dancefloor, thought as an extend (video) playful of their last adventures in the world of repetitive musics. Result, this tribal initiative is live as a continuous and radical dj-set where live and abrasives instruments substitued to turn tables and vinyls. As if Pacman met Jeff Mills. - Mathieu Durand, Banlieues Bleues
