Biografía

Black Strobe (sometimes Blackstrobe) were formed in Paris in 1997 by producer Arnaud Rebotini and DJ Ivan Smagghe, and were instrumental in the rise of the electroclash movement in the UK with their breakthrough single Me And Madonna. Originally producing in the house genre, they later became more influenced by music from the 1970s and 1980s, especially industrial post punk and camp, European electronic body music (or EBM). However, they describe their dark electrosound as "frozen balearic gay biker house".They are heavily influenced by such bands as Cabaret Voltaire, Nitzer Ebb, Front 242 and Depeche Mode.

They are much sought after as remixers, and worked with such diverse artists as Röyksopp, Nitzer Ebb, Rammstein, The Rapture, and Tiefschwarz.

Ivan Smagghe left in 2006 as Black Strobe expanded to a four-piece live band, with members David "Siskid" Shaw (guitar), Bastien Burger (bass and keyboard) and Benjamin Beaulieu (drums) joining Rebotini on vocals and with Smagghe contributing lyrics. They released their debut album Burn Your Own Church in 2007.

"I'm A Man", was included in the film and soundtrack of Guy Ritchie's RocknRolla, in the French film of Pascal Bourdiaux Le Mac (2009).

"I'm A Man", was also copied without permission and used in a Bollywood flick Once Upon a Time in Mumbai (2010).

In 2009, after a few Mix, an EP in Back From Beyond (Supersoul Recordings), which is accompanied by early 2010 by a video directed by Laurent Chanez, met in 2004 through the Groupe de Recherches Musicales (GRM).

"Shining Bright Star" was featured in Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood multiplayer launch trailer.
