Biography

Born in 1980, near Paris, French electronic music producer and composer Erwan Castex is better known under the moniker Rone. French label InFiné came across his productions on MySpace and quickly signed him. Rone’s debut “Bora - EP” (2008) attracted immediate support from 3D (Massive Attack), Sasha and Lee Burridge (Fabric). His debut album “Spanish Breakfast” (2009) came out to critical acclaim. Then he decided to move to Berlin to compose his 2nd album “Tohu Bohu” (2012), containing the hits “Parade” and “Bye Bye Macadam”. Back in Paris after touring Europe & N. America, Rone composed his 3rd album “Creatures” (2015) with more collaborations, like The National guitarist Bryce Dessner, French pop icon Étienne Daho... Early 2017, Rone presented a unique creation at the Philharmonie de Paris. That night, he invited friend artists to join the show; drummer John Stanier (Battles), François Marry (Frànçois & The Atlas Mountains), sci-fi writer Alain Damasio & chord trio Vacarme. This experience was probably the spark that lit up “Mirapolis”, Rone’s fourth studio album where his catchy and elegant cinematic melodies, and neatly crafted production blend in perfectly with talents that Rone approached for a collaborative experience. Besides solo works, the album “Mirapolis” sees collaborations with a.o. vocalists; Kazu Makino (Blonde Redhead), Saul Williams, Noga Erez, Baxter Dury; guitarist Bryce Dessner (The National) and drummer John Stanier (Battles).
