Victor Watel a.k.a Panteros666 grew up in the cold and trashy North of France just like his Club Cheval brothers.
He started doing music as a teenage drummer, played in various dance-punk outfits in the late 00’s and soon developed a personal, enhanced sound environment. He’s also been continuously fed by many other kinds of digital commodities : YouTube vids, gifs and jpgs found through extended scrolling sessions on self-generated pics websites. He eventually got rid of his drumset, and started his techno crusade in 2011.
‘Hyper Reality’ is Panetros666’s first LP, released as a limited edition double heavyweight vinyl by The Vinyl Factory and the artist’s Paris-based label Bromance. Click here for more info.
Panteros666 Hyper Reality
Bromance / The Vinyl Factory, 2013
Hyper Reality is defined by its attention deficit disorder: ‘Porteciel’ drags club music through a trance gate, while ‘Olymp X’ sees the techno devotee try his hand at hydraulic hip-hop. Nothing is off-limits, from garish electro synths to vocoded vocal loops.
