BIO

Honored Matres aka Le Chocolat Noir is hailing from the Croatian industrial city of Sisak. His vision of clubbing was formed in the Zagreb underground parties already in ’91/’92 dancing lost in the smoke under strobe lights along with other freaks. Following more then a decade of being music lover and clubber, HM/LCN started DJing in the beginning of the Millennium and produced his first tracks in 2005.

He describes his production as cold/noir electronica and likes to use the term consistent inconsistency for his work, something that’s noticable when listening though his releases. HM/LCN, during his 15 years of DJing, has not restrained from playing everything from dark to kitch, from obscure to ‘hits you heard too many times’, from noise and raw sound to ‘as-it-shoud-be/refined’ production, and much more in-between. The similar approach is duplicated into his live performances that can be either concert or club ones, or the combination of the two. He can play one project or another or combine the two together. HM/LCN performes with hardware and live vox.

Fairly hyperproductive, he self-released three audio cassettes over the last several years while his tracks and remixes were released on Frigio, Kraftjerkz, Attractive!, Bordello A Parigi, Soundtravels, Romance Moderne, Basic Unit Productions, Creme Organization, Adriatiko, Home Made Electronica, NAUK and Wave Records (please see the complete discography below).

During the last five years LCN/HM is selecting and playing a wide range of music in his radio show Disco Panonia on the Den Hague based Internet radio Intergalactic FM and is also a member of Florence Foster Fan Club (FFFC).

LCN/HM played throughout Europe and in Brasil, both as DJ and as producer (see the almost complete history under the AGENDA).
