Ripit, a.k.a Nyko Esterle, started his musical activities as a black metal guitar player in 1995. In 1998 he turns into radical electronic, developping a noisy, rythmical and psychedelic sound based on primitive synthesizer use. He evoluates to a more complex form of sound tending to beat micro-surgery and orchestral bombast.
As an actor of extreme electronic/pre-breakore parisian scene by organising alternative parties, he expanded his network on an international level. He toured several times in North America and Europe.
He contributed to over 100 releases on numerous label such as Tesla Tapes, Idiosyncratics, Angstrom, Bruit De Fond, Zhark, Yb70, Solis Kanones, Rexistenz...
In 2006, he founded with TZII (www.tzii.tk), the protean project Solar Skeletons (www.solarskeletons.com
In 2007, he founded the concrete Dub/Mutant Rap project FUJAKO with portuguese Dub strategist HHY (www.soopa.org
Back to a more primal creative technique, his live sets are based today on the extensive use of modular synths, ol'time drum machines and no-input mixers to create a dancy, acid music, plunging the crowd in a magma of electrical textures mixing dance-floor references and magnetic fog.
