D-Node 221: Philippe Petit | Decision Making Theory

Philippe Petit is originally from Brussels, Belgium. His background is in the rock scene of the ’80s, more specifically punk and metal. While playing the guitar in several bands and promoting the US punk/metal/hardcore scene on the Belgian National radio, he also started DJing. At first mainly eclectic music, hip hop and funk as well as some NY garage house, he then slowly shifted to deep house and techno, thanks mainly to Jeff Mills and the Detroit electronic musicians who opened his eyes to harder techno music. In late 1994, he moved to London and spent a lot of time exploring the underground London electronic scene. In 2010, he moved permanently to Chamonix, France, where he now focuses his energy on producing electronic music. Philippe is composing music mainly when the weather grounds him at home, infusing the dark atmosphere of the steep-sided mountain environment in his tracks. His sound is techno, Detroit influenced, hypnotic, dubby, always incorporating a funk element. He launched a vinyl label in September 2011 called Knotweed Records. Artists on the label so far include Myk Derill, Gonzalo MD, Myles Sergé, Opuswerk and Terrence Dixon. With too many unreleased tracks on his hands, he decided to launch a second label in January 2013: Decision Making Theory (DMT). His latest release on Decision Making Theory (the Elements E.P.) has just come out of the pressing plant and started to hit the shops. This week’s two-hour long vinyl-only mix goes through some of the tracks that he has been digging lately. Full tracklist below.
