Biography

Ugly Mac Beer made his debut at the end of the 90s, as a DJ for the "La Formule" group, alongside Wax Tailor. In the 2000s, wishing to develop his own projects, he started a solo career. He quickly established himself as a key figure in the turntablism / scratch music scene in France, as an artist, but also as a prolific independent producer with his label Beatsqueeze Records. In the middle of the year 2000, he started to collaborate with the digger/beatmaker Mister Modo. From this alchemy, a series of projects was born, punctuated by numerous international collaborations with big names in this culture such as MF Grimm, Kool Keith, Psycho Les (Beatnuts), Guilty Simpson, Mike Ladd, El Da Sensei, Dj D-Styles... In 2009, the release of the album Modonut received a lot of media exposure and a real success with a wider audience. The track "Not Afraid" (ft Jessica Fitoussi) with 70's soul accents is widely programmed on the radio and allows the duo to be broadcast internationally. The second opus of the duo, soberly titled "Modonut 2", was released in 2012 and gave birth to a hip-hop banger "Diggin in the Crates" (ft F.Stokes), which was acclaimed by DJs in Europe as well as in North America More and more in demand in the world of advertising and cinema for image synchronisation, Ugly Mac Beer discovered a passion for audiovisuals. Inspired by television, pop culture, film and music in the broadest sense, he now finds his place as a full-time composer of music for film.
