As a video game and movie score-composer, The Toxic Avenger has previously won numerous awards for his work in these industries, namely Best Music in Video Games for his contribution to the 2016 shoot ’em up game Furi as well as Best Music in a Fantastic Film at the Gérardmer International Fantastic Film Festival. What other dimensions does this talent possess? Let us find out:

Stream / Download: The Toxic Avenger – ‘Mine’

What motivated you to extend your 2022 album?

I think I had a few more things to say after my album was released! 

‘Mine’ stands out, being a House record on a Synthwave project. Is there an overlap between the two genres? If not, what inspired you to switch things up?

I don’t think my record is a Synthwave album at all, and I’m trying to abolish all boundaries between genres, so I’m not really a fan of labelling things.

What’s your “secret sauce?” What makes your sound stand out?

I guess some of my synths… I’d say my Juno 106.

Define a successful day in your eyes.

A successful day is a day I can spend with my friend and family. Sounds pretty boring and conventional, huh?

What made you decide to pursue a musical career?

It is, to this day, the only thing I can do well.

What would you be doing as a career if you never pursued music?

I guess I’d been a cook!

What were some of the most influential albums on your creative outlook and output:

Almost anything but electronic music weirdly (ok, well besides Homework which is still, to this day, my ultimate reference).

What key pieces of gear/software do you use to define your sound?

Juno 106 for sure; that’s all over my tracks. I use a lot my TR707 as well. Prophet 5 for all the leads.

How do you prepare yourself mentally for performing or/and studio sessions?

Coffee is a really important part of my creative process, let’s say it like that.

Tell us about your upcoming releases or projects

I just released an extended version of my Yes Future album with 8 more tracks.
