Get the Monster X sound today!

Julien Caraz, aka Monster X, has been quiet on the rave scene in recent years, but don’t mistake that for inactivity. He has been extremely busy giving his time and skills to SampleTraxx for a series of three (so far) high-end sample libraries… Monochrome, Off The Grid and Radically Evolving. Each library is described below, along with audio examples and product links. However, before we get to those libraries, here are some thoughts on Monster X by Scheme Boy…

I can barely remember a part of my rave life that Julien wasn’t around for in some form. Back in London, during the early 2000s, we were always at the same raves as punters and then regularly booked on the same shows as performers. Our paths always crossed. Probably because of our similar and exquisite taste in fucked up music! In our early breakcore days, it soon became apparent that Julien was leagues above the rest of us, in terms of sound design. He was already getting professional sound design work whilst the rest of us were still scratching around squat parties, playing for free beers!

Discovering his early breakbeat material blew my mind at the time. Here was someone who, in equal measure, captured the London breaks ethos (in a Cursor Miner / Ben Best / Tipper kind of way), then arranged and chopped it all with that Peace Off breakcore mentality that is so synonymous with the French producers (then and now). On top of all that, he does it all with Autechre levels of sound design and spatial awareness. I didn’t know whether to punch him or kiss him. I still don’t! So, it is great to see SampleTraxx putting their faith in his skills and finally giving the rest of us mere mortals the chance to shine via his sound design skills. I am going to enjoy mangling the hell out of these samples to see what Monster X inspired chaos I can create.
