Before his string of Australian shows the big bad French techno warrior Maelstrom, who has seen releases on BoysNoize Records and Sound Pellegrino was kind enough to give us a buzz on a few burning questions we had to ask.

A bit of banter later we ended up hearing about his favourite Australian sounds, not giving a shit about the negativity currently surrounding dance music and scaring women away with his music!

Dates and a stream of his most recent EP 'Generation' below.

SR - Which artists have influenced your music the most? M - Model 500 / Juan Atkins – Spiral Tribe / Manu Le Malin - `Steve Reich – Terry
Riley – Photek - Goldie

SR - What are you looking forward to doing in Australia? M - Kissing a crocodile

SR - Are there any Australian producers catching your attention at the moment? M - Wordlife, the Finger Prince, Light Year, and the motorik / bang gang crew are
blowing my mind,

SR - What are your thoughts on the current dance/electronic scene? Are we due for an apocalypse-styled revolution? M - Honestly I couldnt care less, there's always going to be good music no matter how,
