"Philipe Cam is a star in his own field. He is among the few people that have succeeded to write hypnotic dance music without a conventional beat still conveying a thrilling, dramatic feel. Cam has developed an accurate, intense and complex formula of modulation-techno. Starting with music similar to Pan Sonic in 1996, his music turned towards a more elegant form of minimal music. He worked as a DJ in Brussels beginning of the 90s. Then chose to become a sailor and cruised the oceans. Mid of the 90ies he started to study electronic music in Brussels and began to write music for theatre, ballet and French movies. Abstract soundtracks lead to an organic form of music, which was equally influenced by modern techno as Wolfgang Voigt's Studio 1/Gas or Basic Channel/Maurizio. His demo received by the Cologne based label Traum in 1999 led to a series of three fantastic 12"s. Since then journalists have made links also to Manuel Göttsching's classical masterpiece E2-E4 referring to his low evolving modular wave scapes and strong repetitiveness. Cam's latest compilation CD Balance on Traum is a fine selection of tracks previously released as Traum 12" s. This CD contains tracks in full length, plus a video of 'Mixte' by Cologne artist Yvette Klein, who thickly textured the music with a minimal aesthetic. Cam's music corresponds heavily to the Cologne scene, where his music is appreciated and played throughout the clubs by the likes of Michael Mayer, Tobias Thomas and various other DJs as well as experimental djs from the A-musik corner."
