Biography

The Toxic Avenger “ANGST”

It’s midnight. You’re out of gas. As you veer from the country road, your headlights scan the empty field. Suddenly, a lonely, masked figure fills the light. You try to scream, but all you hear is the pulse in your temples as the Toxic Avenger yanks the
rip-chord of a rusty chainsaw.

Named one of Rolling Stone Magazine’s “Artist to Watch”, the story of The Toxic Avenger (AKA Simon Delacroix) is like a warped VHS copy of a snuff film. He joined a grown-up Parisian hardcore band at age twelve.
By age 22 he was packing venues with a growling new sound that left the faint at heart weak in the knees.

Today Simon Delacroix is more than a paradigm-shifting producer (Roy Music-Universal), he’s a world-renowned remixer (Ladytron, Peaches, FF5, Chromeo, Beni Benassi feat Kelis). An iconic DJ, and diabolical hero of his own, twisted, grind-house epic.
As a producer, The Toxic Avenger smashes through the windshield of electronic music, grabs it by the throat, and drags its body into the night where it is bathed in light and the terrible roar of his machine. His trademark, crime scene noir, coupled
with the stomach-knotting ruthlessness of bass, defies all logic, inspiring an entirely new way of thinking about dance music.

To The Toxic Avenger, the dance floor is his theater, his audience, and his prey. He saws at the crowd with mind-scrambling spirals of gunmetal. He fires from speaker
stacks with cinematic shrieks that dive down your brain stem and electrocute the body. No one can escape. Like the Ace of Spades, his calling card is to leave all his victims begging for more.

Stalking the shadows of Paris, The Toxic Avenger spreads his reign of terror from Europe, to the US, Latin America, Asia, Australia, and South Africa; playing along side
acts like Run Dmc, Crystal castles, Lil jon, SebAstian, the death set, Diplo, Jamaica, bloody beetroots or Vitalic,

Following up 2007’s Superheroes EP, 2008’s Bad Girls Need Love Too, 2009’s Toxic is Dead and Scion CD Sampler Vol. 26, Delacroix is fresh off the release of his 2 latest EPs, N’importe Comment, a collaboration with controversial Parisian rap iconoclast, Orelsan (#1 of the French TV music video charts airplay in 2010) and Angst one on which he invited his friends SomethingAlamode and their violins to create the magic bridge on this hybrid track both deeply melodious and radically electronic.

The spring of 2011 will be a incredible time for The Toxic Avenger as he goes for his first big kill in the form of a feature-length LP entitled, “ANGST”. Hatched in Morocco. “ANGST” is a diverse, pop-format bloodbath: punk-electro, dark folk, bliphop anthems, and of course, his trademark thriller beats; crafted along with a conspiracy of elite vocalists he met down his Parisian avenue or along the road:
Annie (NO), Simon elle est bonne (FR), Lexicon (US), BonjourAfrique (FR), Southcentral (UK), Messinian (US)..
“ALIEN SUMMER” a fantastic electro pop song and the result of his collaboration with Norwegian singer ANNIE will drop out in april 2011 as the last announcement of Toxic avenger’s Gourmet album.

As this dark figure continues to cast an ever-expanding shadow over the world, the legend of his power grows….
