Carbone


Carbone entered the world of electronic music in 1995, becoming interested in big beat / breakbeat artists such as The Chemical Brothers and The Prodigy as well as through the developing house music and techno scene in France.  Originally from a piano (which he studied for ten years) and jazz background, Carbone further diversified his musical interests by his love of sub’pop, metal, fusion and rock and roll.  His musical orientation took a definite turn during the period in which he listened to his Metalheadz’s first album.  Jungle / drum and bass became his new musical passion.

Carbone began by ‘playing out’ in Charleville-Mézières, in the East on France before moving to Reims (the City of Champagne) and creating ‘The Adrenaline Crew’ a team of people who organised parties in various inner city clubs such as Pop-Art Café, Le Tigre and BrindZinc.  He was then invited to play at Circle’z, his first large gig at ‘Chateau’ in the East of France, alongside six other established DJs.  Then The Adrenaline Crew began organising various parties such as the ‘Big Boat Party’ which was a big success and the team began to gain recognition for their work in this area.  The crew were given the opportunity to host free parties in conjunction with paid-for events ie organising pre-parties before the main events. This venture continued to grow and it was this that brought Carbone to play twice for Paris-based label Black Label Recordings along with Storm, Ed Rush, Souljah, Terry T and others.

It was at this point that Carbone started to play in Reims again at ‘Brind’Zinc’ for the annual drum and bass club night as well as at ‘Arakiss’ in Grenoble in the South of France with DopeAmmo, Oxygen Records, Noisebuilder, Earsut and X-Ray Production. Carbone joined X-Ray production in 2004 and became a resident at Audiologix parties at ‘Batofar’ from 2005-2006 and has since played with Rascal & Klone, Dope Ammo, Tarik ‘n’ Djamel, Earsut, Nem, Pitch’in, Mac Manus, Square, Heliostat, Goloom, Mc Taiwan, Mc Olivia as well as mixing for the exclusive X-Ray compilation: Metropologix with DJ Magid which has been available in reputable record shops since the beginning of 2006 and which featured some of his first productions with Future Prophecies, Psidream and Dope Ammo.  Carbone spent time in the studio and album-mixed from 2007-2010.
