Rone (real name Erwan Castex) is one of the hottest young musicians on the French music scene. As an electronic music producer and artist, he has been making plenty of noise since his first EP "Bora" came out in 2008.
Castex grew up in Paris and rolled out that first EP at the age of 27. It might not seem like he hit stardom all that early, considering some American artists find overnight success in their teens or early 20s. But in a genre where the competition is fierce, Castex stood out and attracted immediate support from a number of people on the scene.
In 2009, Rone (as he would come to be known) first rolled out "La Dame Blanche," a track later remied by LCD Soundsystem's bass player Tyler Pope and Austrian EM artist Clara Moto. Next came Rone's first full-length album, "Spanish Breakfast," which earned him a nod from Electronic Beats when it was ranked in their top 25 Best Albums of 2009.
In 2011, Rone took a big chance and left his hometown Paris for Berlin, Germany. Soon after he released the EP "So So So," and a second album entitled "Tohu Bohu" ('Chaos') followed. The album spawned three singles: "Parade," "Bye Bye Macadam" and "Let's Go." The continued success led Rone to new collaborations in the U.S., including work with indie band The National. In April 2014 Rone released the P "Apache," supporting it with a North American tour for the first time in his career. He wrapped the trek with an appearance at Coachella. He'll release his third studio album, "CREATURE," in February 2015.
