Describe 3 seminal moments in FORM existence?
The Form tour in Mexico, a few years ago, was incredible, it’s easily of the most exhilarating and unforgettable experiences I’ve ever had. Julian Jeweil – a regular Beatport chart topper – released multiple EPs and remixes on Form which were met with huge success. Also, Form Music was nominated last year in the “Best Independent label” category at the DJ Mag France Awards.
Most disappointing moment in FORM existence?
Getting stuck in Mexico with Julian Jeweil and Noob because of a lost immigration paper! We literally went through hell and back, sitting for endless hours in some Mexican police station, eating our fingernails and praying things would work out! On top of it all, it was a national holiday and no-one was available…Some of the cops were on a power trip, trying to scare us into bribing them, others came up to me for autographs. It was absurd.
Another disappointing moment was when we didn’t win the “Best independent label” award at the DJ Mag polls last year, I thought Form had earned it. We’d been releasing such quality music and our artists were praised by the critics, but anyway.
I can’t think of a third disappointing moment, it’s all been so good, globally :)

Describe FORM album artwork?
It’s quite distinctive in terms of geometric lines and aesthetics. It has gradually evolved with time into more complex figures but the original concept is still there.
Best FORM showcase?
I can’t think of one in particular but our showcases at Rex Club and Zig Zag, both in Paris, were particularly awesome. Also, last year’s BPM Festival in Mexico and Sonar Off in Spain were incredible.
Worst FORM showcase?
Can’t think of a single one.
The Form music team is very tight, we’re like a big extended family so we’ve never had a bad night, the mood’s always been happy and supportive.
Most important business/music app/program/software?
I’m so old-school when it comes to stuff like this! I’ve been using the same software and programs for years! I’ve used Cubase for the last 20 years at least, I can’t bring myself to use something else. Otherwise I work with hardware and virtual synths.
A collaboration with Matador is on its way, and a bunch of other collaborations are due to take place soon. Can’t tell you more!
