You must have been hiding pretty well if you are only just hearing about Flechette. The three names behind the outfit are the 24-year-old Josh Torrent, 21-year-old Andy-Lou Pentier and the 20-year-old Tana Gayle. Being brothers, Josh and Andy-Lou were heavily captivated by music from an early age, as they grew up surrounded by it in every direction they looked. Josh previously performed under the name ‘Obey’ which gave him some incredible opportunities to perform both as a drummer and as a DJ alongside legends such as Pendulum and Bassnectar.
Whilst all of this was going on Andy-Lou was spending serious amounts of time studying and perfecting his production skills working in and around Hip Hop. This led to him having multiple live experiences playing drums at events around Paris. The third member of the trio, Tana, was experimenting more with the visual side of performance. Despite this, she has always had a love of music and her ability to control a live crowd slotted her in perfectly to complete the trio that formed in late 2012 under the name Flechette.
Flechette then joined the rapidly growing ranks at Brighton based label Cream Collective, along with a host of fantastic producers such as Ozzie and XXTrakt. This move ended up leading to the release of their first EP titled ‘Seize’.
Over the last year Flechette have performed countless sets around Europe, and had their music played by some of the most influential DJ’s in the world, including Mad Decent founder Diplo. As well as their multiple gigs around the continent, the trio have held down a long running residency at ‘The Social Club’ in their home town of Paris, where you can see them performing on a regular basis. Their incredibly powerful blend of influences seeps through into their production which has touched many people and looks set to continue to expand in the future.
