Hyp 363: Maelstrom

Hyp 363: Maelstrom

For well over the past decade, French musician and DJ Joan-Mael Péneau has performed and produced under the alias Maelstrom, one of the more fitting monikers in the electro scene. Tempestuous rhythms and moody vibes characterise the hypnotic sets he curates, a style continued on in his production due to masterful sound design and an experienced ear. Regularly releasing on Lab-Rok Records and Expressilon in years gone by, and more recently on imprints such as Central Processing Unit and Acid Avengers, the wild and blustery output of the Frenchman has been recognised for some time.

Welcoming him to our mix series, Maelstrom causes disorder by pulling from the darkest corners of electro and techno, with rigorous numbers from The Hacker, Fastgraph, Stanislav Tolkachev, Aphex Twin and more.
