Quentin Dupieux picked up a camera and starting making movies aged 12, and shortly after began composing electronic music as a means to soundtrack his films. His teenage movies were bought by Canal+, and he released his first EP in 1997 under the name of Mr Oizo.

In 1999 Dupieux was asked to make a TV commercial for Levi’s and Flat Eric was born, a furry yellow character he created for the occasion. The track ‘Flat Beat’ which was featured in the commercial topped the charts in Europe the first day it aired and Flat Eric instantly became an electro superstar and a pop culture icon of the ‘90s.

Since then, Dupieux has directed 6 full-length films (Nonfilm, Steak, Rubber, Wrong, Wrong Cops, Reality), released 5 Mr Oizo LPs (Analog Worms AttackMoustache (Half A Scissor)Lambs AngerStade 2 and The Church), 4 original soundtracks (Steak with Sebastien Tellier & SebastiAn, Rubber with Gaspard Augé, Wrong with Tahiti Boy, and Wrong Cops), and a number of EPs and remixes for the likes of Justice, Air, Calvin Harris, Tiga, Kavinsky, Scissor Sisters, Jamie Lidell and Boys Noize.

On this sixth LP, his third for legendary Parisian label Ed Banger Records and Because Music, Mr Oizo has invited friends to collaborate, ranging from Skrillex to punk-electro pop star and performance artist Peaches, pop hook genius Charli XCX plus established electro masters Boys Noize and Siriusmo to name but a few.  This isn’t a features album per se, it’s wall to wall Oizo production with a few curveballs thrown in. Irresistible.
