Male Model Machine is Stephan Fisher and Alex DeGrace, both native to BC.
The group was formed when the duo did a remix of DJ Timeline's "Lipstick",
which sparked the desire to work on original productions as a team. Their
sound is dubbed as bass-driven electro and techno, a style which has been
influenced by artists such as Jesper Dahlback and Destillat, as well as the
classic sounds of acid house and techno. As djs their style is a full
assault, an uncompromising barrage of hard basslines and beats that don't
let up. This has given them a signature style many have come to know them
for, both in their productions and on the decks.
"Writing music is what we live to do, plain and simple," says Alex. "Music
is the best reason to get up in the morning, and even better reason to stay
up late at night. It's a creative outlet and a passion."
Male Model Machine has released three EPs and two remixes, and has many more
in the works. Their "Electro is Played Out" EP included remixes from
industry players Chopstick and the Cheshire Cats, and saw support from DJs
around the world, including Women Affair (Spain), Andrea Doria (Italy),
David Ekenback (Sweden), and Chuck Leplay (LA). The EP was also reviewed in
San Fransisco's XLR8R magazine. Forthcoming projects include releases on
Blufin (Germany) and Fakt (London), as well as a small European tour that is
in the works this summer.
