Over the last half-decade or so, Erwan Castex, better known by his stage name Rone, has become known for his unique brand of ambient techno music. In addition to a long list of successful remixes, the Parisian producer has also been able to build a strong collection of studio works. As all his previous work has, including his classic 2009 album Spanish Breakfast, his latest project, Apache, released through French music label InFiné. With Apache still fresh on the minds of fans, we were lucky enough to catch up with Rone for the latest installment of our music essentials segment. Traveling light, Rone only deemed eight items essential to his daily routine, including a laptop with a midi keyboard, his Akaï MPD for his live sets, a notebook, his passport, two pairs of glasses as well as something to read. Browse through the items, and see them described in further detail up above.
