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.
