Like many current electronic artists, Franck Rivoire’s musical pedigree started at a young age, playing in both Jazz and Punk bands. While training to become a graphic designer, Rivoire took on the production name DANGER. Subsequently he signed to Ekler’o'shock, and has released 3 EPs and a slew of remixes. All of his produced tracks have odd, numberical monikers. For an explanation of this odd artist jargin, we can look to his Wikipedia page:
Each Danger EP is named after a date following the first one, 09/14 2007 (September 14, 2007), which is the day he finished the EP. These EP’s have not been released in chronological order; in fact, “EPII” has been promoted on his MySpace since the release of the first EP, but has yet to be released, and 09/16 2007 and 09/17 2007 are actually EPIII and EPIV, respectively. This strange chronology is a reference to that of the Star Wars film series
Whatever he is thinking with this naming scheme is irrelevant to me, he creates great sounds. DANGER epitomizes that gritty textured French electro we have come to love. 11h30 is likely his most popular release, while 4h30 is certainly me favorite.
This is DANGER’s third appearance on Metrojolt, a title he alone holds, and for good reason. Enjoy a sampling of those tracks in addition to some of my favorite remixes.
