MUTEK presents 15 x 15
Coeur Des Sciences 02/03/2014
A self-taught multi-instrumentalist, producer and DJ, Nico Serrus spent his formative years in a beach town in southeastern France, hopping on and off various punk, hardcore and post-rock bandwagons. He first took up DJing after falling hard for London’s drum’n’bass and Jamaican sound system cultures on the cusp of the new millennium. A move to Montréal in 2005 shifted his attention to production (he releases under the MINDBEND moniker), fermenting a bass-rattling brew of dubby, tech-y, thirst-quenching rhythms. A co-founder of electronic imprint Fur Trade Recordings, Nico is also one-half of SINTEG, a vehemently groovy, improv-attuned tech-house duo (alongside his brother Ollie Viero) that performed as part of MUTEK 2011’s EXPÉRIENCE series.
