Humeka claims he has never been eager to re-invent music but to find his own interpretation of Techno, House, Dub and Ambient. And there is hardly a better description for his first release on Yuki Yaki.
The six tracks and the remixes clearly state his love for sharp and crispy clicks and cuts wrapped in best Electronica classicism while his bias in beats seems to lead more into dry desert landscapes of minimal house and dub techno.
An eerie sense of ambience and deepness is wobbling through the twisted house chords and shattered melodies but in spite of all these disharmonic moods you will always feel tempted to start moving your feet.
Besides the bunch of soul mates who has done the remixes apparently understood their French friend quite well.

Humeka's treasure is his walkman. He takes it on exploring tours, listening to old tapes of Eurythmics, Michael Jackson and Depeche Mode. At that time he is 9 years old.
Seeing a live performance on TV with one of these renowned Roland-Keyboards, he is overwhelmed with excitement and decides to create electronical music himself.
He has published so far ep's on DEVi4NT-D4NCeFLO0R, LesIzmo:r and Believe and also works as a remixer.
