Info o I Hate Models
I Hate Models burst onto the scene back at the tail end of 2016, with a plethora of tracks that mirrored the aggression of his in your face name. Despite the seeming aggression, the name is less literal than it seems; he states an abhorrence for literal models or genres and being put into boxes, rather than the faces gracing the covers of Vogue and more on a monthly basis. The project never meant to start and finish as a non-stop, aggressive techno one, and he has showcased that with dips in and out of electro and EBM along the way.
His voyage into electronic music began when he was finishing up in middle school. His music taste was deeply rooted in hip hop, punk and metal. Once he discovered one of his favourite bands’ albums had been released as a remix EP featuring only electronic remixes, he was hooked from then on in; hearing these aggressive metal tracks being given even more violent and energetic re-works made the Parisian feel something he never had before and from there, a terrible beauty was born.
With his new found passion in tow, I Hate Models was spawned and from then on in, his openness to music spilled over into a multitude of other electronic genres, citing that he never really listens to techno when he’s not making music, preferring to find inspiration in synthwave and ambient styles.
