My name is Ken Langelier, I grew up in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Not from a musically versed family, I got into music only in my late teens when I discovered Pink Floyd and Peter Gabriel`s Passion of the Christ soundtrack in the 90`s. Psychedelics like LSD, psilocybin and cannabis gave me access to my musical loving self and I became a big fan of grunge music ( Stone Temple Pilots, Pearl Jam, Nirvana, Soundgarden, Tool), then punk ( No FX, Bad Religion, Pennywise ), industrial music (Nine Inch Nails, prick, Stabbing westward, Kmfdm ) and Trip Hop ( Tricky, Sneaker Pimps, Massive Attack).
I then discovered Raves and electronic ( Techno ) music in 1996 and started to really appreciate this genre a lot more for its really powerful sounds and beats. I started to listen to Bjork, Crystal Method, Fluke and also lots of DJs around the world.
I am a computer programmer so also in the late 90’s, I discovered Scream Tracker, an old music production program that made me love to create songs with a computer. Back then, the possibilities where a bit limited so I stopped pretty fast and forgot about music production for 20 years.
Last December, I got a new Iphone 6s. I then discovered Garageband and was so impressed with it that I started creating new tracks again. This was really just for fun at first, but the results were better that I expected and everybody around me liked the music I produced. So I decided to go all in and promote myself on the web. I now have a Soundcloud and Bandcamp page, I’m also on spotify, ITunes and all major retailers! I am creating at a frantic pace and am constantly challenging myself with collaborations and new projects!
I have now more then 340 tracks and counting in 18 months. Most are Techno, trance, House and Dark Electro but I am experimenting in a lot of other styles ( Dubstep, Ambient, Chill, Drum & Bass, etc.). I have truly found myself a passion and this really fills a hole in the creative part of myself. I am so thrilled to create music that I love and I want to share it to the world so others can peak into my soul and creative mind.
In the last months, I have been working a lot with other producers ( melodywhore, Drunx, Aniello Guerra, Dephinite ) to refine my style and we just release my first Techno collab album called : Shaman’s Teshno vol I!
17 tracks, 11 originals and 6 remixes by 12 producers! It has been an incredible time and I feel lucky to have been able to do this! Thanks again to all who participated in this project.
