Moteka is french producer Pierre Delort’s latest project. With over fifteen years of experience in the electronic music scene and after touring festivals and clubs around the world with his partner Rémy Maurin under the psytrance alias Principles of Flight, Pierre teams up once again with Rémy in the late 2000s to start a new techno collaboration. They are rapidly spotted by french label Skryptöm where they sign two EPs: Skryptöm 09 & 14 under the name Pierre Delort & Rémy Maurin. During 3 years, their transition from psytrance to techno occurs with success and personality, progressively evolving to a more modern sound, both grittier and refined with hints of melancholy.
In 2013, Pierre moves to Marseille, where he starts the Moteka project. While Principles of Flight was a mixture of psytrance and goa with powerful techno rhythms and phantasmagoric cinematographic ambiences, Moteka veers towards assumed minimalism and restraint, inspired by the classic English techno scene such as Surgeon or Planetary Assault Systems. Now a solo project and with his new sonic direction, Moteka meets once again the french label Skryptom and becomes one of its leading actors, with a dark, percussive, hypnotic techno and perfectly mastered production skills.
Always open-minded, some of his tracks bear an out-of-this-world onirism, such as the EP Xyceon released in 2015 on Skryptöm. Moteka is also a regular artist of London-based Children of Tomorrow records, where he signs his darkest and rawest tracks, like the EP Trimethoxysilyl released in 2015 and still heard in many sets, or the EP Daneel Olivaw in 2019, where he reconnects with a faster sound and a permanent search for sonic avant-gardism.
Moteka is one of the scene’s sought-after producer and his tracks are played by the biggest names: Paula Temple, who plays the track ‘Apogee’ (Asgardia EP, Skryptöm 2018, co-produced with Hemka) in all her sets, Rodhad, Ben Sims or Kobosil to name a few. As a live expert, each of Moteka’s musical unique and unforgettable musical trip is always well received by the hypnotized audience. This is the main reason why in 2018, Pierre is offered to join the super band Möd3rn.
In 2019, once again in his search of avant-gardism, Moteka presents his first album on Skryptom: ‘As we fought Iron Giants’ an imaginary soundtrack of a techno-steam- punk tale, where every track illustrates the chapter of a heroic epic.
