Handle: Olivier

How did you come up with your alias ?
It's just my name.

City / Country:
Marseille, France.

Born year:

What was your first computer, and when did you get it?
I got first an horrible Philips computer and then a Mighty C64 in 1983.

How did you get into the scene and what groups have you been a member of ?
First with some local friends I formed a first group called LES NULS, we were just doing some demos, then after this I got problems with the police, I went to court but got relaxed because I was under 18! Then after this I re-started another group called Phoenix (demogroup), some months later I found M.A.D. We released some cracks and then later I found Paradox which became pretty Big with members in Denmark (Henk, Badboy...) Usa (The Surge)and later by becoming good friends with the Quartex members in the USA we decided to merge the group and to keep the Quartex name, at this time I was the Leader of Quartex!

What was the proudest moment in your career ?
When I putted up the first BBS in france: Olivier's Place.

An unforgetable moment that I have also is when I went to a copy party in denmark and stayed at Strider place in Sweden! (Zelnik is Lame remember? hehe)

For what specific reason(s) do you think that you are remembered ?
I think by being very active on the scene. Paradox-Quartex were kicking ass at that time! That's for the working side, then I had very cool moments in Conferences, Parties...

What would you like to be remembered for ?
By kicking Lamer's Ass! hehe

What made you stop the scene activity ? (and do you remember when?)
When the scene was going too much business I think, and then I got busted a second time by the police: at that time I was totally out without any contacts anymore, the police took all what I had!!!

Thinking back on the good old days, is there anything you regret?

What was your favorite
A lot!

Wild Copper demo and Mental Hangover (Scoopex)

A lot!

Bamiga Sector one-Kent team, Vision Factory, Redsector-Tristar, Oracle, Ackerlight...

What are you doing nowadays ?
I run a record shop (House Techno) i'm a DJ too (DJ OLIVE) and manage 2 record labels B.E.A.S.T. records (Hardcore) THRUST (Techno)

And organise Rave parties (up to 5.000 peoples)

What are you doing on your spare time?
Going out, Drinking, Sex and connect to Internet

Is there anything you'd like to say to the public (read: admires)
Nothing to say except that I'm impressed after 5 years not having any computers to see how modem trading changed...

Also I'm looking for the Phoenix-MAD-Paradox-Quartex intros demos and to some cracker journal! I would really apreciate if someone would give that to me!

What is the meaning of life?
