TOXIC AVENGER 29th AUGUST 2009 JOBURG


While France continues as the dominating powerhouse for electro-dance, the growing independent scene keeps churning out all-night-long party DJs, with The Toxic Avenger quickly rising as the premiere Frenchman capable of taking the dance floor to a new level. Defining his style as ” Emotronic / Christian Rap / Thrash” Toxic, from his real name, Simon DeLacroix, developed a noisy, scratchy and heavily saturated sound, but keeping a melodic line that sometimes recalls many Ed Banger and other French house groups. The Toxic Avenger has been made popular thanks to various podcasts, MySpace, and the two-dance floor killers that are Saloperie De Minimale and Superheroes. The Toxic Avenger has also expressed his talent throughout numerous remixes notably The Secret Handshake, Dragonette, Sexual Earthquake in Kobe’s “Love with ChloĆ« Sevigny”, “Dance Among the Ruins” by Tommie Sunshine featuring Peaches, and Ladytron’s “Ghosts”. His electro styling makes for remarkable slots of dancing hyperactivity.
Signed to IHEARTCOMIX Records, in 2007, The Toxic Avenger was named by Rolling Stone as “One of the five most influential electronic artists of the year” alongside Justice, LCD Soundsystem, Digitalism and Simian Mobile Disco. The Toxic Avenger draws from a number of distinct influences not directly related to the dance scene. The Toxic Avenger has played with many of the current greats including Erol Alkan, MSTRKRFT, Boys Noize, Kavinsky and Crystal Castles. He’s even played what is known as a ‘Zenith’ (a venue of over 10,000 people) in France with Vitalic, and completed two successful six-week tours in the US with IHEARTCOMIX founder and fellow DJ, Franki Chan
