Mossa (CA)

Multi-instrumentiste venu à l'électronique après une décennie d'étude en classique, figure récidiviste de Montréal et de MUTEK, Jeremy Petrus (alias Mossa) a trouvé sa marque de production dans les années 90 quand il a commencé à transformer des petits bouts de techno minimale, de jazz, de musique latine et d'électro pour en faire des sculptures de boucles souvent asymétriques et puissantes. Sa discographie éclectique faite de compositions house à base d'échantillons combine lascivité et ridicule, gagnant l'intérêt des connaisseurs avec ses envolées très colorées, ses rythmes novateurs et ses textures séduisantes. La dernière décennie a vu Mossa maintenir un calendrier de sorties complètement fou, il a notamment partagé ses productions et remixes sur des étiquettes telles que Orac de Seattle, Circus Company en France, la Canadienne Cynosure et son propre collectif avant-gardiste Complot. Ses morceaux ont été mixés par des artistes comme Death in Vegas et Akufen, et aussi remixés par Swayzack, John Tejada et San Proper. Après une pause remarquée (exceptée pour ses soirées House Unlimited), cet ancien incontournable de la scène micro-house de Montréal revient plus motivé que jamais pour un live exclusif à EM15, qui gardera le Savoy dans une veine techno grâce aux rythmiques racées de son prochain album.

Métropolis 04/06/2010

Informed by a decade of classical training and electronic-music culture, Montrealer Jeremy Petrus has produced two albums and over a dozen singles’ worth of quirky, propulsive sample-heavy house that draws influence from jazz, funk, latin, electro and beyond. His tracks have been checked and mixed by artists as diverse as Death in Vegas to Akufen, and have been remixed by John Tejada, Ark, and Cabanne. Since 2002, he’s appeared on labels such as Orac, Mo’s Ferry, Cynosure, Circus Company and his own Complot Recordings. Mossa is a MUTEK repeat offender, and this fourth appearance will see him command the intimate, sweaty Savoy Room at Metropolis, where he’ll unleash new material from his latest album, « Festine », which boasts contributions from Mike Shannon, Dave Aju, Pezzner and Matias Kaden.
