Jean-Drapeau Park 04/06/2006Raised in Windsor, Ontario and currently dividing his time between New York and Berlin—a geographical arrangement fitting for his role as part of the Minus family of artists—Marc Houle was until recently best known as one third of Run Stop Restore (alongside Troy Pierce and Magda). He's lately come into his own as a solo artist with releases on Minus and remixes for Ellen Allien, Troy Pierce, Imiafan, and the Esperanza label. While Houle's productions take in influences ranging from synth-pop to classic techno, his current work is best described as minimal, restrained, and ingeniously polyrhythmic. While many live techno appearances consist in space-bar pushing, Houle's live PAs are marked by a questing, improvisatory spirit that renders no two gigs the same.
