PANTEROS666 - BROMANCE #12 : Baby F-16


Victor Watel a.k.a Panteros666 grew up in the cold and trashy North of France justlike his Club Cheval brothers. He started doing music as a teenage drummer,played in various dance-punk outfits in the late 00s and soon developed personal, enhanced sound environment. He’s also been continuously fed by manyother kinds of digital commodities: YouTube vids, gifs and jpgs found throughextended scrolling sessions on self-generated pics websites. He eventually got ridof his drum set, and started his techno crusade in 2011.His first EP ‘Kegstand’ eleased by Sound Pellegrino was a true mutation in effect– sounds taken from the Dutch jumpstyle songbook locked inside a funky technoframe. The main intention is basically to produce tracks that can both entertainyour mind and talk to your body, to make dancefloor ammunition with a twisteMeta angle, working like comments on what’s generally thought about club music.His material sounds physical and nervous, but also offers much to (joyfully) thinkabout. Then followed the Javelin EP released on Belgian label Forma.T, hiscontribution to Benelux born warehouse techno.Also working in the realms of TV communication and advertising by day like somesort of animated gif era Don Draper, Panteros has directed all his movies andoffered his extended video imagination to other artists: Para One – You, The Aikiu– Pieces of Gold (with its million views) or being a DJ explorer for Vice Magazine’sGuide to Festivals. He teamed up with The Creators Project to develop theinteractive engineering behind his live show.His first mini LP ‘Hyper Reality’ + Live sho, to be released on Brodinski’s label‘Bromance’, unites both Panteros66′s obsessions with technologies and music.
