Zerolex is born in 2011 – being a prolific producer, he had formed a
duet with Superpoze and in 2012 has joined Cotton Claw. And in the
mean time, he was also perfecting his own productions. Fed by
black music and by hip hop, the 22-year old producer hailing from
Besançon, France has dug into the world of beatmaking before
broadening his horizon to electronic music. Inveterate and
passionate digger, he got into Dorian Concept, Dimlite,
Flying Lotus and many more. But Zerolex has also grown up thanks
to fated encounters – he met Zo aKa La Chauve Souris, Lilea
Narrative and Yoggy One, who became his first influences into the
electronic scene. That being prior he joins them on stage under the
moniker Cotton Claw. The Cotton Claw experience has thus enabled him
to explore new musical fields and experiment more.

After three EP – Floating in solo (Eklektik, 2013), Dusted with
Cotton Claw (Cascade Records, 2014), Eclipse with Holy Two
(Cascade Records, 2014) and the Volutes album (Cascade Records
, 2015) with Cotton Claw, Zerolex gets back to work with his
new single : Twofold – set to be released this fall. Twofold is
more electronic and the textures are as multiple as Zerolex’s
inspirations. All composed on MPC, the two tracks on the single
mixes samples, retro synths and… contemporary beats. Twofold
gives way to personal productions – a reflection of his unique
universe – setting a new etheral direction, where sparkling and
melocid sounds get along future beats.


En 2011 nait Zerolex, producteur prolifique qui forme pendant un
temps un duo avec Superpoze avant de rejoindre en 2012 les rangs
de Cotton Claw, tout en peaufinant ses propres morceaux. Bercé par
la "Black Music" et notamment par le Hip Hop, ce Bisontin de 22 ans
plonge dans le grand bain du beatmaking puis s'ouvre à la musique
électronique. Digger invétéré et passionné, il s'intéresse de près
Dorian Concept, Dimlite, Flying Lotus et bien d'autres. Mais Zerolex
se nourrit également de belles rencontres - celles de Lilea Narrative,
Zo aKa La Chauve Souris et de Yoggy One - qui deviendront ses
premières influences électroniques avant d'officier sur scène à
leurs côtés. C'est d'ailleurs l'expérience Cotton Claw qui lui fait
explorer de nouvelles perspectives et le pousse à expérimenter

Après trois EP - Floating en solo (Eklektik, 2013), Dusted avec
Cotton Claw (Cascade Records, 2014), Eclipse avec Holy Two
(Cascade Records, 2014) et l'album Volutes (Cascade Records,
2015) avec Cotton Claw, Zerolex fait sa rentrée 2015 avec un
nouveau single: Twofold. Twofold est résolument plus électronique.
Il faut compter sur des textures aussi diverses que les inspirations
de Zerolex. Entièrement composés sur MPC, les deux titres de ce
single mêlent samples, synthés rétros et... beats contemporains.
Des compositions personnelles, reflets de son univers singulier,
amorçant de nouveaux horizons éthérés où les sonorités chatoyantes,
plus mélodiques, s'accoquinent aux future beats. Une rentrée
studieuse pour Zerolex, qui s'attèle déjà à la préparation de son
premier album solo...
