Fast Facts You Need To Know

2019

Houle was largely inspired by the Detroit techno and Chicago house scene as well as new wave music, and the first generation of video games that championed electronic sounds. He often describes his sound as a cross between the two cities, Chicago and Detroit. Some of his other influences include Prince, Depeche Mode, Black Sabbath and Iron Maiden. His sound can be described as a blend of his Chicago and Detroit influences with a good measure of new wave synth sounds. Propelling sounds of the future yet at the same time casting a reminiscent light on 80’s synths and video game music, Houle’s productions give him a sound that sets him apart in the electronic music industry.

Although Houle’s first EP wasn’t released until 2004, he was constantly producing music at his home in Windsor. He would collect synths and new equipment to make music on from the pawn shops of Detroit. Houle enjoyed making new wave music that was a blend of electro, being a huge fan of the new wave synth lines. During that time, he also made video game music, for which his moniker “Run Stop Restore” was inspired by the key presses on a Commodore 64.

In addition to the release of Houle’s Undercover album in spring of 2012, he also released a Remiix app developed by the online music and technology company, Liine. Liine, whose offices are located at Minus headquarters in Berlin, has developed prior Remiix apps for artists such as Dubfire, Joris Voorn, Plastikman, and Oliver Huntemann. Houle has worked with the Liine app developers contributing tracks for the Minus Remiix App and later for his own. The Marc Houle Remiix app allows the user to take loops or parts of Houle’s tracks, and rearrange them with the option of adding effects such as reverb or delay. The user then has the option to export their remix to their social media of choice. The app features tracks of Houle’s both old and new, such as: “Bay of Figs,” “Edamame,” “On It,” “Porch,” Triple E,” “Mooder,” and “Undercover.” The Marc Houle Remiix app can be purchased in the iTunes App store. In February 2013, there is an updated planned, with new artwork as well as 28 basslines and 32 drum loops.

2013

In 2013, Houle teamed up with Joaquim Dos Santos, with whom he has been friends since they both lived in Windsor, to create “La Folie,” a nocturnal synth pop band. The name derives from the French phrase that means “the madness of love when one is madly in love.” Joined by live member Clelia Cantoro, their debut performance was on June 5, 2013 at the Kantine at Berghain, one of Berlin’s renowned nightclubs, which was soon followed by their debut album with twelve tracks mixed down by Tobi Neumann.

2008

Two years later, in 2008, Houle decided to move to Berlin to continue working on his music and touring with his live performance. Houle was part of the CONTAKT tour, which celebrated the tenth anniversary of the Minus label. It featured six Minus artists: Richie Hawtin, Magda, Troy Pierce, Marc Houle, Heartthrob, and Gaiser. The tour was visionary in the sense that multiple artists would play at the same time, hooked up to a master mixer and paired along with stunning graphic and lights. Houle was one of the featured live acts.

2006

In April – May 2006, Houle participated in the vigorous 50 date “min2MAX tour” to celebrate the Minus “min2MAX” compilation of minimal techno. Houle’s track, “Simpler” is part of the compilation. The tour began with 25 dates throughout the European continent, of which Houle played six shows, one of them headlining himself in Belgrade, Serbia. The tour then continued in May in North America as a bus tour across 11 cities in the US and Canada. For the US segment, Houle travelled together with Magda, Troy Pierce, and Richie Hawtin for all dates.

Items & Things began in 2006 as a sub-label under Minus, with only one release per year between 2006 and 2009. In summer of 2011, Houle along with Magda and Troy Pierce, decided to amicably break off from Hawtin’s Minus label in order to pursue their own musical direction with Items & Things. The label is characterized by a variety of sounds ranging from disco to techno, with about one release per month featuring the label artists and newcomers. Having a steady output of studio productions himself as well as many unreleased tracks on his hard drive, Items & Things allows Houle to release more of the music he makes. The year of 2012 has seen Items & Things’ first full album: the release of Houle’s latest album, “Undercover”. There was also an EP release for “Undercover” with several remixes and an additional track, “Triple E.” He has also contributed the track “Villains on the Dance Floor” for the label’s first compilation and vinyl box set “Variables.” In May 2013, Marc Houle and French DJ/producer Miss Kittin released their well received Where Is Kitten EP, with remixes from Dubfire and John Foxx and the Maths. Later in the year, on September 20, Houle released a five-track EP called Razzamatazz with fellow producer Click Box. Both EP releases were housed on Items & Things. Self-sufficient, the label has its own booking agency in addition to their label events called “Down & Out,” to celebrate their label and feature their artists. The parties are characterized by a more “underground” feel, dark moods, simple lighting and special decoration. The agency’s roster now features Houle, Magda, and Pierce as well as artists Nyma, Madato, Click Box, Bruno Pronsato, Danny Benedettini, Kate Simko, and Chloé.

2004

After putting out his first record, Restore, on Minus in 2004, Houle began touring as a live act. One of his first performances was in Detroit, followed by a performance at the club “Happy Ending” in New York City alongside Mike Servito on Saturday, August 28, 2004.

1997

Being attracted by the new sounds of electronic music, Houle would often head into nearby Detroit to experience the famous warehouse parties, where a range of DJs would play a mix of Chicago house and Detroit techno. Around 1997, Houle and his friend Scott Souilliere ran the gaming night, “Atari Adventures” at Richie Hawtin’s club, 13 Below in Windsor. He met Magda, who was another fellow resident at the club. They became friends, going to the same shows between Windsor and Detroit. At the time, Magda started to tour with Richie Hawtin as opening act, and played stripped down edits of Houle’s tracks. Afterwards, Hawtin invited him to be on his Minus label. Living together in Windsor, Magda would guide Houle’s productions into being club friendly, while Houle would retain a separate synth version for himself.

1992

Houle began his career as a graphic designer, quitting university in 1992 to focus on his own company called “Outputs”, one of the first web design companies at the time. His next company, Redchalk, did work for the automotive industry located in the nearby area of Detroit, ranging from graphics and animation work to even music production. Both of Houle’s brothers are also graphic designers to this date; Dave Houle carried on to be the designer for Minus for many years. Until today, Marc Houle still does a lot of photography and his own video graphics.

1991

Houle was born and raised in Windsor, Ontario, Canada. Growing up in a musical family, he started early to play around with musical instruments such as piano and guitar, and owned his first set of drums at the age of four. At the age of fourteen, he began exploring synths with his first Casio keyboard, on which he would eventually record on. For ten years, Houle was the drummer of a local Canadian rock band with regular small gigs in nightclubs all over Ontario. In 1991, he bought his first Roland JX-3P.

1972

Marc Houle (born 1972 in Windsor, Ontario) is a Canadian live act and producer of electronic music. He is considered a live act and not a DJ, since he uses elements of his own productions to create his sets, as well as tracks that he has remixed. Houle came to fame under his first album, Bay of Figs, which was released on Minus. He is most known for being a techno artist, and as part of the core group of artists on Minus before moving on to create his own record label Items & Things with fellow Minus friends, Magda and Troy Pierce.
