Metek Sound System

1996 - 2016

Metek was a tribal sound system established in the South of France in 1995.

Resulting from the beginning movement of the free techno in France, Metek Sound System is much more than a simple collective of musicians,
it’s a techno Tribe who has traveled France, Europe, and North America for almost fifteen years
with aim to share the discovery of its music and propagate the ideologies of this underground movement inspired particularly by the
Spiral Tribes.”

Metek has been in the initiative of the organization of hundreds of events gathering from 500 to 50 000 people:
Free Party, Tecknival and other urban manifestations.

The crew has known to weave a network of connections throughout Spain, Italy, Austria, Germany, Czech Republic,
Hungary, the Netherlands, Canada and the United-States.

Based upon this state of mind, their label “Metek Records” and production structure “Metek Production” are independent and diffuse their work essentially in the areas called “Underground” within mostly the form of LP 33 Tours.

"The underground remains the underground, those who want to use it can only hijack it."
