Drawing from Post-Punk, Black Metal and Industrial, French producer and live artist, Maxime Fabre, has risen to acclaim under the Crystal Geometry alias, returning to his roots in the warehouse rave scene of the 90’s and industrial music, fusing Belgian EBM influences with post-modern, modular-engineered Techno. At its core, the project is built around an evolving analog modular synth, accommodated by haunting live vocals and abrasive distortion. Fabre’s live performances transpire into an all-out assault on the body, marching through dystopian territories, manipulating sounds into menacing frequencies. Equally punishing extended hybrid and DJ sets have given further scope and context to the alias, building weight throughout the global circuit of clubs, warehouses and spaces.
After a number of high-impact earlier productions, Crystal Geometry signed to Adam X’s Sonic Groove in late 2018, with the “Red Faith Militia” EP – aferocious 4-track vinyl release that explores the brutalities of the former Eastern Bloc and ruling Communist government. Following Fabre’s debut on the label , his second work for Sonic Groove rose to acclaim in 2019 with “The Cyber Heresy” EP – a military-grade vinyl continuing a wake of destruction across dancefloors. Crystal Geometry’s third release for Sonic Groove marked the opening of 2020, with a 10-track, full-length album entitled “Senestre”. The album furthers the alias’ interest in socio-political themes, laced with metallic synth lines and commanding vocals. News has emerged of a forthcoming debut on SNTS’ Sacred Court, expected in Spring of 2020.
