After collaborating for ten years with his friend Rémy Maurin under the project name Principles of Flight, then Pierre Delort & Rémy Maurin, the French producer Pierre Delort starts Moteka in 2013 in Marseille. Where Principles of Flight was a mix of psytrance, techno rhythms and phantasmagoric cinematographic aesthetic, Moteka veers towards a more minimalistic and restrained approach, inspired by the classics of the English techno scene, such as Surgeon or Planetary Assault Systems.
Moteka signs his first EPs on French label Skryptöm, with whom he’d already worked for Pierre Delort & Rémy Maurin. His percussive, hypnotic and dark top-notched-produced techno, make him one of the key artist of the label. Moteka’s music often shows oneiric and melancholic sonic landscapes, inspired by Pierre’s passion for analog synthesizers, as in the « Xyceon » EP, released in 2015 on Skryptöm. Moteka is also a regular on London-based label Children of Tomorrow, with a few EPs such as «Trimethoxysilyl » (2015) and « Daneel Olivaw » (2019).
In Marseille, Moteka collaborates actively with French-Moroccan promoters Paradox, and becomes one of their residents in 2018. « As we fought Iron Giants », Moteka’s first album, is released in 2019 on Skryptöm. As a live enthusiast, Moteka’s scenic performance rely heavily on improvisation, with the combined use of machines and software for an always unique performances. In 2018 he joins the techno band Möd4rn alongside Maxime Dangles, Electric Rescue et Kmyle, who release their second album « Decode/ Process/Inform/Decide » in September 2022. In November 2022, Moteka is back on Skryptöm with his second album : Permutation Paradox, produced in collaboration with Canadian artist Truant.J.
