Trunkline is the union of Madben and Yann Lean. The duo plays raw groovy techno with textures and rhythmic gimmicks. Influenced by the sound of 90’s rave, the two French producers deliver techno based on lively writing and spontaneity. With Trunkline, they rediscover the distinctive grain of techno only achieved with analogue machines.

On stage, Trunkline plays a 100% hardware live set up which allows for jazzlike improvisations and interactions with the audience. They use Moog and Kilpatrick Audio modular synthesizers, Elektron and Roland drum machines and a custom-made Bastl Instruments master filter. The on-the-fly sequencing part is done by Arturia's Beatstep Pro. No computer! Everything is plugged into a 24 channel Midas analogue console which allows them to use many other machines. On the dancefloor, the duo also performs a four-handed dj set, with formidable energy.

Trunkline's first ep's were released on the eponymous label, then other ep's and remixes were released on Planet Rhythm, Gynoid, Noir music, KR/LF. Trunkline was also noticed by Carl Cox and Nicole Moudaber, who offered to remix them on the Mood records label. In May 2022, Mercy, Trunkline's first album, was released on the Belgian label Arkham Audio. For the release of this album, the duo presents a brand new live machine on stage.
