One of the Minus family – Marc Houle had his ‘moment’ in 2006 with the excellent ‘Bay of Figs’ – whose eerie all-encompassing riff made it one of the most original tracks of the year. An early obsession with first generation computer games – first playing, then ripping the sounds from – led to him developing his own version of synth-pop. When he hooked up with Magda and the two started producing together, he started creating more stripped down versions of his these tracks – and Richie Hawtin’s ears pricked up. Soon he was a fully paid up member of the ever expanding Minus family. When asked to describe his sound, he ventures, “ Detroit + new wave + Kraftwerk + Commodore ÷ Iron Maiden.” These diverse influences are perhaps what make him stand out in a sea of minimal producers. His artist album was described by one reviewer as “minimal pop” – so perhaps he can even be credited with creating a whole new genre.
