Bleep to Bleep
Parisian electro duo the Micronauts teamed Christophe Monier (who previously recorded under his own name as well as the alias Discotique) and Canadian-born George Issakidis, whom migrated to France in 1990. The two met while working on the fanzine Eden, and in 1995 released the Micronauts 12-inch "The Jazz"; the record was championed in the press by the Chemical Brothers, and in turn Monier and Issakidis remixed the Chemicals' hit "Block Rockin' Beats." Subsequent Micronauts releases including 1996's "Get Funky Get Down" followed before the duo signed to Astralwerks to make their American debut with 1999's "The Jag" and the following year's Bleep to Bleep.
