13 Questions: Perturbator

A friend of mine recently turned me on to French musician Perturbator after hearing him on the HOTLINE MIAMI soundtrack and I've been a fan ever since, specifically of his latest album I AM THE NIGHT, which is like the musical equivalent of an 80s Cyberpunk movie. If you're into moody, synth-heavy music inspired by 80s genre cinema, Perturbator is someone you need to check out, which you can do at the links below!

1. Who are you and where are you from?
Hi i'm James Kent alias Perturbator. I come from the depths of hell which is actually near Paris.

2. Where might people know you from?
A lot of people seems to have discovered me through the Hotline Miami soundtrack.

3. When it comes to what you do, who or what are your major influences?
John Carpenter, Vangelis, Tangerine Dream i'm also very influenced by 80s horror movies soundtracks and all metal subgenres. Actually it all depends on the moods i'm into.

Ahah good question. i'd say Mike Patton, Pee Wee Herman, Rod Serling and Ben Weinmann from The Dillinger Escape Plan.

That'd be Mr Bungle's debut album. Gotta love the "ominous amusement park" theme going on through this one. I also bought "The Stars You Gathered, The Stars I Destroyed" from the french Black metal band Nontinuum. Check them out they are really underated !
