7even Recordings is proud to present the debut album from French electronic music explorer Helixir. Back in his early days, Kevin Martin aka Helixir was affected by his first strong musical experiences listening to Frank Zappa, AFX, Quasimoto and Plastikman. A drummer, bassist and guitarist, in 1997 he founded the experimental jazz rock combo Maelstrom, and soon became interested in working on sound montage on a Tascam mag-tape. Kevin also discovered the computer universe and started to explore new possibilities for his music. A new world appeared, a natural extension of the instrumental world, where Kevin could experiment with many new techniques to blend seamlessly and creatively. Kevin cuts, pastes and distorts notes, beats, waves, genres and effects. He explores these concepts further also as part of Strasbourg's Sens Inverse Crew, playing live at parties in the east of France and in Germany. Recognized for the quality and versatility of these productions, his style is impossible to label -- it is known simply as the "Helixir" style. A master of programming, sound mixing, bass science and EQ, Kevin always surprises and never does the same thing twice. Just listen to his four prior 12"s on 7even Recordings and you'll find different tempos and genres at work: dub, breakbeat, dubstep, drum & bass, indo and techno flavors. Mala, Untold, Mary Anne Hobbs, 2562, F, Ramadanman and Brendon Moeller all support his music. With Undivided, Helixir takes us on board for a deep sonic exploration. This album is not a mere compilation of tracks: this is a story, a musical trip, a vehicle to bring you somewhere else altogether. Press play and let yourself be transported. Two tracks are exclusive to this CD.
