In 1997 MINIMAN makes his first steps in electronic music. The piano, which he has been playing since the age of 14, his love for reggae, his experiences in bands and soundsystem like ..ZION GATE HI FI.., naturally shaped his style.

He also started live mixing. A series of 7 ” were released from his meetings with ZION GATE HI FI. ” DUBLAND “, the first digital dub release in France will appear in April 2002 on the album ” EN MARCHE POUR SION ” produced by a hardcore punk label, THE AGE OF VENUS.
