Biography

Antibes, Nice, France (2001 – present)

M83 is the and music project of the French artist Anthony Gonzalez. He and former member Nicolas Fromageau founded the group in 2001 in Antibes, France. M83’s style owes a lot to the genre, in that there is much emphasis on tonality, extensive use of reverb effects and often softly-spoken lyrics at times submerged in instrumentation. M83 was named after the spiral galaxy “Messier 83”.

M83 has released the following albums: M83 in 2001, Dead Cities, Red Seas & Lost Ghosts in 2003, Before the Dawn Heals Us in 2005, Digital Shades Vol. 1 in 2007, Saturdays = Youth in 2008, Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming in 2011, Oblivion and You And The Night in 2013.

For the third album released by M83, Before the Dawn Heals Us, Gonzalez decided to part from Fromageau (after an emotionally distressing tour for Dead Cities). Currently Anthony Gonzalez records mainly on his own(Nicolas Fromageau started Team Ghost in 2009), often with the help of his brother Yann Gonzalez, vocalist/keyboardist Morgan Kibby, guitarist/bassist Pierre-Marie Maulini, and drummer Loïc Maurin.

M83 produced the remix of the track “Pioneers” on the British group Bloc Party’s 2005 album Silent Alarm Remixed. M83 also collaborated with other Gooom Disques artists in a collaborative LP, under the name Purple Confusion.

    you want space travel experience? solar fields blows these guys out of the water for that. Its funny that m83 only became cool to listen to since the last album, personally think its a drop off from their previous albums. Obviously the production value is higher on the latest album though. You can't go wrong with Air, talkie walkie is exceptional. Also depends on the space travel, while they are different, Tycho, Lazerhawk (listen to shoulder of orion), and more rockish is this will destroy you, caspian, explosions in the sky. And of course the original shoe gaze standard, My bloody valentine. It seems people don't understand shoegaze came from the fact that some bands used so many effects they were constantly looking (shoegazing) at their pedals.

    @ackyl If you like the more shoegazy drawn out stuff, then try Lotus Plaza (Album "Spooky Action At A Distance"), Deerhunter (Album "Microcastle", "Halcyon Digest"), Jon Hopkins (Album "Immunity") and Fuck Buttons. If you like the more traditionally structured pop songs then try Röyksopp ("Keyboard Milk" nails that travelling through space feeling), Apparat (Album "Walls") and Moderat ("Milk"). Also some songs from Daft Punk "Random Access Memories" (Touch, Beyond, Contact).
