Le Chocolat Noir
Le Chocolat Noir aka Honored Matres is hailing from the Croatian industrial city of Sisak. His vision of clubbing was formed in the Zagreb underground parties in ’91/’92 dancing lost in the smoke under strobe lights along with other freaks. Following more then a decade of being music lover and clubber, LCN started DJing in the beginning of the Millennium and produced his first tracks in 2005. He describes his production as cold/noir electronica that is not limited to a specific genre, mixing his blend of electro, EBM, minimal wave and techno. LCN performes with hardware and live vox.
Fairly hyperproductive, he self-released three audio cassettes over the last several years and the next one is out in 2017. His tracks and remixes were released on Frigio, Charlois, Helena Hauff’s Return To Disorder, Attractive!, Mélodies Souterraines, Kraftjerkz, In The Dark Again, Bordello A Parigi, InClub Records, Soundtravels, Romance Moderne, Crème Organization, Basic Unit Productions, Adriatiko, Home Made Electronica, NAUK and Wave Records. 2017 will see an EP release on Gooiland Elektro and appearance on Mechatronica.
During the last six years LCN is selecting and playing a wide range of music in his radio show Disco Panonia on the Den Hague based Internet radio Intergalactic FM and is also, together with Zarkoff, a member of Florence Foster Fan Club (FFFC). He is a resident member of Zagreb’s Brave Crew and Ljubljana’s Elektroliza.
