Brussels-based French producer Maoupa Mazzocchetti follows acclaimed productions on Unknown Precept, PRR! PRR!, and Mannequin Records with his full-length debut, Laugh Tool. Mazzocchetti resurrects the earlier days of electro-industrial in a mixture that recalls the late-'70s/early-'80s period of Fad Gadget, Throbbing Gristle, Portion Control, Cabaret Voltaire, and Front 242 crossed with the more fresh and innovative deep electronic experiments of Beau Wanzer and Charles Manier. Driven by a DIY ethic and a punk ideology, Mazzocchetti records his work in his bedroom without any professional equipment, using analog synths and sequencers, modified drum machines, tape loops, and lots of effects pedals. Florent Mazzocchetti (aka Maoupa Mazzocchetti) began experimenting with rhythm at an early age. He developed a passion for the drums at the age of ten but soon got into rock records and switched to guitar, which became his main instrument and shaped his perception of music. To an audience of contemporary electronic music consumers who have only closely followed techno, house, electro, and disco, the sounds of Laugh Tool will appear unearthly and entirely unexpected. It's an album of ten tracks ready to change minds. Artwork by Florent Mazzocchetti. Mastered by Rude 66. Limited edition of 500.
