Manga Corps

Manga corps is a collaboration between French producers ‘Manu Le Malin’ (Manu Dauchez) and ‘Dr Macabre’ (Guillaume Leroux). These Paris based Artists first released IST014 in 1995 and recently did a follow up EP: ISL12 - ‘The Hunter remixes’.


Manu le Malin

A main character of the international hardcore techno scene, Manu le Malin is the symbol of the struggle of a musical genre for its own right to live. He has overcome hardship and made his way in life since this evening of 1991 where Manu, who was dragged along by friends, discovered “raves”, their relaxed atmosphere and their new music. ...more.


Dr. Macabre

Dr. Macabre

Guillaume – now a veteran of the French electronic music scene – first got into music at 16 by arming himself with a guitar and a drum machine and aping his favourite punk and alternative groups: GBH, The Exploited, Les Béruriers Noirs and Ludwig von 88. At the end of the 80s and after a short hip-hop phase, he went to his first acid house and techno parties. He put on his first gig in ’92. A few raves later, he brought out his first LP on the legendary FNAC label (now known as F-COM) under the pseudonym “Lunatic Asylum”. His second LP, which included the classic track “The Meltdown” brought him to the forefront of the international scene. The German magazine Frontpage voted him best live act and best track in ’93 and he took advantage of the vogue for trance until ’95, when he put down his first hardcore tracks for the equally-legendary PCP label. 1996 saw the launch of Dr Macabre which – thanks to the “Poltergeist” track – also became an essential part of the hardcore scene worldwide, through collaborations with top artists such as Marc Acardipane, Manu Le Malin and Radium. After briefly being signed to the Megarave label in Holland – and seeing even more success, notably with “Danse Macabre” – he signed to the Epileptik label, on which he brought out two electro albums (“The Hitman” and “The Hitman II”), a live hardcore LP and a handful of EPs.

At the moment he divides his time between making electro-trip hop-industrial music (with Lunatic Asylum) and music with an industrial-tinted mid-tempo hardcore sound (with Dr Macabre).
