Interview

I am Charly Madea originally from France Paris, I grew up in London and worked in Fabric London for 8 years, it was one of the best experience to learn
everything about Music and professionalism. Fabric’s Owner & Director & Myself have a common point is we are all very passionate about what we do
and we work with all our heart. The first time I DJ it was when I was 8 years old, I went on a Skiing holiday with my dad, we stayed in a very cool Hotel in the Alpes  France, and every night there was a party there, my dad new the DJ (Eric) and one night he said “Charly; come behind the decks, I show you how it works” Since then I found my path in life.

I lived in China for 7 years, I was a Techno nightclub owner (Magma Chengdu) and DJing all over Asia. I just came back to Europe (Paris) and I thought I would make something very special and unique for VOID so here comes “Chemin de Jouvence” I am also very happy to play some wonderful tracks  from the Artists of my record label “Ïnflux Reborn Records” Mmm, for the artists that I admire, well there many talented people out there that I like to follow, but I mostly get my inspiration from Richie Hawtin and Stephen King. By listen and reading those 2 genius; It’s there I found my own specific ideas for my sounds.

I had the chance to play DJ in many different country and meet some very interesting people, and like I mentioned earlier Fabric was the best music school (in my opinion) that anyone can have. I have learned a lot from them how the music business work. From that I created a Techno Club in Chengdu China and today I direct a record label which I love.

My state of mind when I play, it all depends of my mood of the day really, then the crowd has a massive effect on my way to play also.

I am doing a big project that will take me couple of years till it is completed, I am writing a book about my experience in China. Some pretty crazy stuff
happened to me during those 7 years, that I really want to share with the world. My plan is to finish my book, then make a screenplay of it and design all the soundtracks with the other me “9 Natural”. I know it will take time to release it; but when it’s done, it will be something worth to see and read trust me.= I will probably try to get in contact with James Wan (The Conjuring – Insidious) if he wants to be part of it. For now, I just start a new life back in Europe, I really want to make some great  Ïnflux Party here like I did in Asia. So my main focus now is to organize Party’s for my label and I am going do what ever it takes to have my name on the
Awakenings & Time Warp line up soon…

Art is a way to express yourself in many kinds of ways. It’s true that every day life gives me some inspiration.  I was in Thailand last year and I made this EP “ÏRR018 – Le Rire De L'innocence” with 90% of the sounds I record in the jungle. Having saying that I made sure they had a Techno Direction thru my
ears of course.
