Welcoming for the very first time to our shores, Gabriel Ananda and his Soulful Techno will be playing tunes all night long up on Lvl 31 on the Terrace at Elysium this January 20.
Gabriel Ananda’s first fairly technoid releases in 1997 on Hör/Spiel/Musik and Utils were only recognized from the insiders.
Back then, harder techno gave him a field of fascination, but he was always more drawn to melodies and inspired by beautiful sounds. Beginning of the 2000s he started to combine driving techno with his melodies, which was pretty uncommon at that time. He started to release on Labels such as Karmarouge, Trapez and Platzhirsch.
In 2008 he founded his very own record label "Basmati“, which was meant to be a platform for his out of the box, experimental productions like the tracks "Hey Blop“ and "Smash“ for instance, which originated from his live sets. And precisely these tracks were the main reason for his success in the Netherlands. His sound was touching the hearts of the Dutch crowd, who understood and appreciated his music and knew how to join it with their lively (party) culture.
It was a brand new boom that he was experiencing at the time, his converted Set-up offered him a much more intense connection with the audience and for the first time, he was able to witness, what was going on around him. A complete new energy and motivation would appear, which prompted him to give his career a new boost.
Precisely out of this moments a really successful "Soulful Techno“ radio show came to life in 2013. A podcast and a platform for carefully selected, soulful and unique, authentic tracks. The podcast itself generated an enormous feedback from listeners all over the world and eventually planted a seed for Soulful Techno music label and an event platform in 2016.
In the middle of 2017, we are able to count more than 300 of productions on over 80 releases, as well as countless remixes for artists like Coyu, Stephan Bodzin, Butch, Dominik Eulberg, Roland Klinkenberg or Maceo Plex, just to name a few.
Supported on the night by Obadius, Alam and Victor G.
