Topic Kris menace to release 3 disc debut artist album ‘idiosyncrasies’ and win a chance to collaborate!


Pete Tong, Erol Alkan and Laurent Garnier are all massive fans. Primal Scream cohort and ex Sabre Jagz Kooner wants to work with him. His remixography includes LCD Soundsystem, Moby, Underworld, Air, Metronomy and Robbie Williams. Welcome to the world of Kris Menace, a man who is fast becoming known as one of the most respected producers and remixers on the planet.

Famed for his Italo disco-inspired tracks, Menace’s debut single Discopolis became one of the biggest dance tunes of 2005, a bona fide Ibiza anthem that got picked up by Defected Records and helped lay the groundwork for Kris to become one of the hottest names in the scene.

Kris launched the label Compuphonic as a vehicle for his own productions and with this Menace’s popularity continued to grow with tracks such as Voyage, Fairlight, Steamroller and Jupiter - the latter becoming one of Beatport’s biggest downloads in 2006. He also began DJing with friend and legendary producer in his own right Alan Braxe, leading to the collaboration single Lumberjack released on Vulture Music in June 2007 (featured on this release). Kris is also the label owner of house label Work It Baby where he has nurtured the careers of Fred Falke, Patrick Alavi, Lifelike and Serge Santiago.

2009 looks set to be Menace’s biggest year to date, starting with the release of his debut album, Idiosyncrasies. A triple disc collection of classic tracks interspersed with fresh new productions, collaborations and remixes; this release single-handedly proves a capsule-like answer why Menace has made such a big impact in the electronic scene to date.
