EAN // 880319539510Bio : Nhar (Cologne, Germany)
Electronic music is a secret and complex art: It lives on chaos and paradoxes, clashed histories and dark sides. So is Nhar’s musical algorithm.
Coming from the flourishing southern techno scene, the artist has developed a personal universe on the fringes of techno and minimal house on labels such as Modélisme, Mobilee, Plak or Correspondant.
This sphere of activities takes us back to several legacies including, first of all, the original scene, which served as a big bang to electronic music in France. Indeed, Nhar awakens to electronic thanks to the southern rave scene, which since the early nineties is one hub of a kind in Europe owing to its leading events (Boréalis, Dragon Bal) and hyperactive collectives.
Drummer in a metal band until he was seventeen, the artist then plunged into that breeding ground of activists and artists: the right time to combine the best tendencies from a booming European scene at that time. Soon he composed his first tracks.
His first projects are released with 22 Crew; the duet formed with Kevin Scherschel, esteemed artist whose latest LP 22:22 has been released on Edelweiss/Module. An artistic potential emphasized with two EPs: The first one released on Modélisme, Sébastien Bromberger’s exemplary record label, the second one is a partnership with, Parisian figurehead DJ, Jennifer Cardini on Dirt Crew.
Precisely at that time, the southern scene got its second wind owing to BarLive relentless activity, which has marked the French electronic scene until its permanent closure in early 2009. The after party venue in Montpellier whose fame has spread far and wide, offers him a regular residency. For three years, it allowed Nhar to hone his musical vision: “BarLive surrounding brought about some change in my mixing style. There, I realized thanks to club music, I was able to convey more than rhythm, a real emotion”.
The period coincides with the first releases under his solo alias, on best European labels: Mobilee, Plak, Meerestief, Bambù, Time Has Changed, Mina, Kina, Soniculture, WIR or Factor City. A collaboration with Cebb/Sébastien Thibaud an a remix of his track Nothingness by Falko Brocksieper, minimal techno leading light, are worth noting. At the same time, the artist remixes British pioneers Silicone Soul on Soma, Pablo Bolivar and Citizen Kain on Regular or Billy Dalessandro on Soniculture.
In 2006, Hexoflip on Mobilee (Anja Schneider’s label) seals Nhar’ style: a deep and hypnotic techno emphasized with a spectral voice. It conveys an original flavour to the tracks, a kind of “melancholy euphoria” retaining a vivid but ghostly hint of humanity. Until then, it has become the producer’s trademark: a vocal chaudfroid establishing, on the artist instructions, a connection with his early dark-sounding musical background.
So new influences have been added to electronic parameters such as those heard on Close Up, a groovy and at the same time almost neo-romantic track or Thelema, signed on Correspondant Jennifer Cardini’s new label: “instead of composing countless tracks of tech house and cold minimal, I’d rather turn towards more authentic trends”. Like Dante, mentioned on the eponymous track, Nhar explores, with a deep voice against a background of enveloping electronic music, untapped resources of human emotions.02. Bizet Reactions - All I Want (Estroe Remix) [Savoir Records | SAV008]
Bizet Reactions; their first release ever. A special moment for every new act. And it's vinyl what we're talking about.
Savoir Records is taking it's next step in the business of serious and shares with you a bucketload of good and honest electronic music. The fairly slow, but energetic 'All I Want' is characterized by it's groovy bassline and a vocal that spreads the basic need of every human.
'Kings of Indulgement' is a highly surprising track, that sketches the need to move every bitch on the way to the dancefloor, because you feel that swag commin'up.
The remix from Ion Ludwig is ideal for that moment on the dancefloor, where everybody is moving, but they need to move a bit more schwungy. Mjam mjam.. just delicious. Estroe's mix is a tad deeper and modest, that can be played on every moment of the day.
From the dutch platform NEW; Radion, Venthom & Vincent are making their debut on Savoir Records. Venthom created a contemporary dubby, twosteppin', headknodding groove. The melancholic soundsketch that Radion has created is intense. Vincent's interpretation is all that for the floor. Cut it, loop it, play it, do it!

After the critical acclaim of their "Juice Box" single, Lank and Zajac are back for more as their hit is getting two brand new remixes. First remix comes from Prog House icons ECHOMEN. Long time Prog House lovers will recognize this legendary band name, made of the artists who spawned tracks under the guise of Lexicon Avenue, Mooncat or Little Green Men over the past decade. Echomen are back in force with a heavy kick and hypnotic sounds. Second remix is delivered by new Australian rising star Rodskeez. Smart grooves and big bassline, this guy is definitively one of the top talent to watch in 2012. We predict something big with him.

Gui Boratto draws from two palettes of sound. He is revered for lush cinematic pieces with low-slung Peter Hook-inspired guitar licks, as well as moody Fender Rhodes accents. The multi-talented Brazilian producer and musician also possesses a far more aggressive side with abrasive electro and techno textures. “Paralelo”- which originally appeared as a B-side on Boratto’s 2007 “Tipologia” release for Parquet Recordings – displayed this darker sonic sensibility. “Paralelo” is now being revisited with a blinding pack of remixes by Parquet boss Solee, rising star Oliver Schories, and Parquet vets Boss Axis.
Solee has sand blasted the jagged electro edges off of the original and transformed the track into a suped-up, big room beast. Similar to his reworking of Nick Warren’s “Flowers” track, Solee shapes a rock-solid groove around reverb-drenched deep house stabs while adding tension with swirling, strobing synths, which culminate in an awe-inspiring breakdown.
What makes a remix truly great is the ability to simultaneously capture the essence of an original track while introducing new energy to it. Oliver Schories’ mix of “Paralelo” does exactly that by teasing the dirty stabs that saturate Boratto’s original until he finally unleashes them in enormous fashion supported by some epic strings. Following up his scorching remix of Nadja Lind’s “Shakes” was no easy feat, but Schories is on fire. Expectations are high for his artist album coming in March on Parquet.
Boss Axis has managed to top their remix of Spieltape’s “Morning Paper” track by delivering an interpretation that is sleek and efficient. The German duo’s emotive, minor-keyed melodies and luxuriously warm bass lines are reminiscent of fellow countrymen Extrawelt’s finest moments.
Each of the “Paralelo” remixes display an absorbing depth by adding some much needed color to the linear arrangement of Boratto’s original.
The remixes of Gui Boratto’s “Paralelo” will be released on Parquet Recordings on January 27, 2012.Ki:Theory - I Wanna Run (feat. Maura Davis) (Nick Warren Remix) [Kringer Records | KR011]
