Pheek - live PA
Jean-Patrice Remillard became interested in acid house in the late 80s and raves in early 90s, inspiring him to DJ his own radio shows in Sherbrooke, Quebec. From his high school years to university, he played techno, house and anything exciting to people whose ears weren't as close to the ground.
Upon moving to Montreal in 1997 to study computer science, JP met Mateo Murphy and found they shared similar musical interests. After performing a show with Gez Varley, Mateo and JP decided to work on a live concept of their own, based on improvising beats on the fly and mixing in other synthesized sonic textures.
It was at this point that JP adopted the name of Pheek after a Richie Hawtin/Plastikman performance at Medialounge, a show that would forever change his perspective on music.
After further honing their live show together, Pheek and Mateo opened for Chain Reaction at the FCMM in 1999. They were spotted by Hautec and offered to release a 12", marking a turning point in their fledgling careers.
The few years that followed saw proposed releases on Hybrid Structure and collaborations with Mitchell Akiyama on various projects – a creative period that proved a catalyst for JP’s later success.
Now part label owner of Montreal's smashing Archipel, dedicated to exploration of minimal compositions, Pheek has been quite the busy man in the last few years, especially with his 2009 release "Slaughter House".
JP will be performing a live set in Atlanta!
