About Harry Potar aka Roms
(Kama Sous Trip, Bionik, Astroboy)
Heavily influenced by punk, metal, hip hop, jungle/dnb, and of course TECHNO!, Harry Potar started to make stupid happy music with Protracker on Amiga 600 and a Yamaha keyboard. Naturally, when he discovered rave party he started to make hardtek, hardcore, breakbeat and drum and bass, playing live in free parties in the S-W of France and North Spain.
He did his first releases in 2003 with Le Diable Au Corps (sub-labels : Wanted Area, Bionik, Disjoncted...), and then also worked with UndergroundTekno (Kama Sous Trip, Clearscream) and Astrofonik (Astroboy, Prostitution Sonore).
His most notorious tracks were released on Kama Sous Trip : hardtek, typical Harry Potar style, and on Disjoncted : industrial hardcore, the original Roms style.
He also likes to experiment and added some techno, neurofunk, electrocore and crossbreed influences to his new productions.
Trademarks : ultra-fat kick/bass combos, hooking melodies, electro synths, technical distorted breaks, improbable remixes...
He's a true digital live performer who leaves a big place for improvisation (no "press play and wave your arms" fake liveset, this should be forbidden !!!), always evolving, never doing the same set.
He plays all across Europe, in notorious venues and improbable places, with major artists and promoters of the hardtek/hardcore scene, at the biggest festivals (Monegros Festival, Q-Dance's "Q-Base", Electron Geneve, X-massacre...).
Harry Potar, aka Roms, is definitely one of the references of the hardtek and frenchcore scene.
