MR OIZO / OIZBIO, Quentin DUPIEUX was born in 1974. At the age of 12, he found a camera and shot anything and everything. At 17, he began to play music to illustrate his images, and bought his first synthesiser.
In 1997 he released his first long-player, on FCOM and invented the silly pseudo: MR OIZO. In 1999, the brand Levi’s asked him to make 6 ads with a character he had just created : FLAT ERIC. The track he composed for these commercials (FLAT BEAT) reached the top of the charts in Europe on the day of release. At the same moment he recorded ANALOG WORMS ATTACK, an experimental album. This record scared away most of FLAT BEAT’s fans, but seduced another, more spécialist audience. Following that, he searched for a way to spend his money and decidesd to produce NONFILM (2001), an incongruous average length movie in which Sébastien Tellier also plays. Satisfied with this, Quentin decided to not release the movie and put it away after few projections in Paris.
The next 3 years are spent doing nothing. In 2004, he discovered the joy of computers and totally changed his style of producing music with the recording of his second album, MOUSTACHE (Half a scissor). In 2006, he met the ed banger crew and starts producing with DJ FEADZ some beats for the young UFFIE, an ingenue female rapper. He writes and produces « STEAK », his first feature-length film in which he makes his friends act (SebastiAn, Kavinsky, Eric & Ramzi), and composes with Sebastien Tellier and SebastiAn the soundtrack of the film and makes it into an album He released, in 2007 his first 12 inch for Ed Banger, the famous TRANSEXUAL, and produced a collection of remixes for different artists (Calvin Harris, Scissor Sisters, Cassius, Jamelia.. ).
Then in 2008 he works on a new album (LAMBS ANGER), on UFFIE’s ALBUM and prepares a new feature-length film (REALITE) that he plans to shoot in 2009.
In March 22th 2019, Mr Oizo releases his last EP, Rythme Plat.
