ABOUT


Harold Boué aka Abstraxion is a French producer based in Marseille. He released at the end of 2013 his stunning debut LP Break of Lights on HAKT Recordings, and on Nicolas Jaar’s label Other People. At the end of 2014 his I Can’t EP came out on HAKT and he was invited in January 2015to Tim Sweeney’s Beats In Space radio show (NYC), then released in April on Biologic records Origami EP, produced in collaboration with Kasper Bjørke.

Abstraxion has already played in the best clubs of Europe as a DJ and with his live audio and video opening also for DARKSIDE (Nicolas Jaar & David Harrington). In November 2014 he launched LAB, a series of bi-monthly in Marseille. So far, the LAB parties have invited John Talabot, Levon Vincent, Axel Boman, Chloé, Tama Sumo and Roman Flügel. Abstraxion co-manages with Belgium DJ and producer DC Salas the Biologic Records label - which celebrates in 2016 its 10th anniversary with a new series of releases. Among them, Abstraxion’s EP Resonance in March, with remixes from Matrixxman, Massimiliano Pagliara & Fort Romeau. His second album She Thought She Would Last Forever will be released in October and a first single Spazieren in September. tremendous beats with gorgeous vocals from Danish singer Astrid Engberg. Possibly the most hypnotic track here, "Around Me," warms with sonorous synths that speak like beautifully indecipherable utterances. And "Les Histoires," dedicated to the producer's father, emerges with half-recalled conversations from childhood, then drifts – as if via time – through spectral keyboards that filter past like memories.

A revisited version of the LP will be released in November, including mixes from Tuff City Kids, Ripperton, Conforce, Clarian, Eduardo De La Calle, Vessels, INIT & more.A strong visual atmosphere will be created around the album with music videos shot in the forests by directors Friedrich van Schoor & Tarek Mawad, and a specific setting for a A/V live designed by digital artist Jem the Misfit. For his new live, Abstraxion will perform alone on stage, exploring further his house & techno side."
