Several music genres have been breaking boundaries, and that includes the
French techno scene. There is no elaborate way to describe their scene, except
that it is simply dark, twisted, raw, and innovative all in one. “There is actually
no specific French techno sound, and this is what I really like  about it,” says
French techno DJ, and producer, Antonin Jeanson aka Antigone.
“Every artist has their own personal style when it comes to techno. For instance,
when you listen to  Spanish techno you can tell that it is the Spanish sound,”
he continues. Antigone has been playing his part right in this current techno
revolution. He believes the diversity of styles within this genre could be
attributed to many factors. One of it is the fact that France is situated in
between Spain, and Germany.
“I think in the case of France, we’ve been drawing influences from left, and right.
Basically, we've been soaking up the different sounds from various European
countries. We are like a melting pot of techno music,” he says. Antigone’s unique
style has garnered him the respect he deserves from his first release, Forbidden
Works, published by Construct Re-Form in 2011 to this year’s Saudade EP
released on Token Records. The young Parisian has indeed come a long way
since his childhood days of collecting vinyl records.
He had his first taste of electronic music in 1998 when he was 8-years old.
Back then, he just moved back to Paris after spending a few years in America.
His godmother, Samira Arbia took him on the truck she was spinning at during
the first Techno Parade, and that experience opened his eyes to how such
music could bring people together. She was also the one responsible for passing
him his first vinyl record, which was an orange 10-inch copy of Sonic Tourism's 
Arti Dust. And just like many other techno artists, Antigone lists  Laurent Garnier
as one of his musical influence, but, if he had to choose one influential individual
who inspired him to be part of the scene, Luke Slater aka Planetary Assault Systems
would be it. “I’ve always been inspired by his music. He’s one of those artists that
constantly innovates his sounds and he never stops pushing boundaries. And that’s
what I like in his music,” he explains. As an artist, Antigone also lives up to that notion
of innovating sounds while pushing the boundaries of music. As a DJ, his well-crafted
sets is what draws his crowd into a frenzy.
While Antigone continues to circle the globe with his amazingly curated sets, he can
breathe a sigh of relief knowing that he has completed all the production work for 2016.
There’s an EP for Token that’s due out in December, a remix for Pris released under Resin,
and another remix that will be released under Slam. Although a great vacation would be a
great way to end the year, Antigone’s personal goal before the year ends is to finally come
up with a concept for his album. “I’m supposed to work on it but I still haven’t figured
out what I actually want to showcase. I hope I’ll find some ideas before I start working on it.”
