Imagine the sound of the Chemical Brothers playing football in the park with African Headcharge. Or The Drummers Of Burundi taking a wrong turn on the way to the WOMAD festival and ending up playing a free rave in a car park in Bracknell. Welcome to Recycler, a world where two young Frenchmen take sounds from untold diverse sources, squish it all together and call it “music.”

In a previous incarnation, Fab and Tcherno (the creative minds behind Recycler) were part of French industrial/rock/dance group MAT, achieving minor success in Europe and support slots with Consolidated and Fugazi. Influenced by the work of Meat Beat Manifesto, MAT had always been about merging different musical elements together to make something new. Forming Recycler, the duo chose to take the possibilities of this fusion further and create dance music unlike anything else.

Big thumping tribal drums, dirty electronic beats, soulful vocals, the intimacy of a sweaty club, the excitement of a rave – this describes in part what they capture so well in their recordings and when playing live.
Having toured extensively at clubs and festivals throughout Europe, playing alongside Gary Clail, Fun-Da-Mental, Future Loop Foundation, Transglobal Underground and Genetic Drugs amongst others, their live performance is a real treat. The air visibly heats up as Recycler’s tribal, infectious beats force even the most unlikely to immerse themselves in a dancing frenzy.
