David started making music at the end of the eighties with an ultra confidential project called Art Kinder Industrie, based in Marseille. He was the first artist to sign on the german label International Deejay Gigolo owned by DJ Hell with the maxi “Boing Bum Tschag/ Innerwood” released in 1996.
He is one of the most influencial electro french artist in the world and a pioneer of the Techno scene as soon as 1994 with a maxi released on Harthouse, Sven Vath ‘s mythical label. His music is characterized by an analog techno sound backed up by retro-futuristic synthesizers that take their roots as much in Front 242 and Nitzer Ebb ‘s EBM as in Giorgio Moroder or Bobby Orlando‘s disco basslines .
After having released three albums ensenced by both audiences and critics, more than a dozen EPs full of dancefloor anthems, more than fifty remixes, and having inspired DJ Hell to create International Deejay Gigolo 20 years ago, David Carretta is one of the founders of the Electro Clash movement in 1999 with his album “Catalogue Électronique” that will start an international wave from which he is the spiritual godfather.
Following the incredible success of his productions for the label Gigolo, David has been having an internatinal career spreading his Techno/ New Beat / EBM / Italo Disco in the biggest clubs and festivals around the world. He founds his own label Space Factory in 2003 on which he releases his ultimate album, the very cosmic “Rodeo Disco” in 2008. Then in 2011 he joins the label Zone, founded by The Hacker and Gesaffelstein, on which he signs two fantastic EPs: “Crash” (with Workerpoor) and “Land Of Sin”, a cold, surgical, industrial techno track without any concessions.
Now he is presenting a compilation CD soberly called “Two Decades: A Retrospective” released by Unknown Pleasures Records; which includes David’s best titles in “radio edit” format as well as a new unreleased track called Retrospective in the vein of the awesome “I feel love” Patrick Cowley dirty disco remix.
