The Depth Affect project was born in the new millennium in the suburbs of Nantes, France. In David Bideau and Rémy Charrier's student rooms, keyboards and laptops outnumbered Beach Boys and Autechre records. From then on, they were set to start building the architecture of their music. A few years later, with a handful of songs in their pockets, a few gigs and their duet being completed by a team composed of a DJ and a VJ, their music found it's own personal path and their first album *Arche-Lymb* received critical acclaim. At that time the band also offered free downloads of remixes of Arche-Lymb tracks made by a wide cast of electronica musicians. On top of that they worked on their live performance and developed a new and original approach to the stage which they had a chance of displaying live in several glorious French venues and festivals. In their new album *Hero Crisis*, the colors of melancholy have taken over the naive beauty and bucolic joy of their first record. In Hero Crisis, their songwriting has become more direct, both harsher and colder, with catchy melodies enhanced by an astonishing production. The twelve tracks of Hero Crisis mix influences stemming from r'n'b, pop, hip-hop, ambient, click'n'cut and dubstep, thus creating a new dreamy and feverish soundscape.
