Organic and optimistic with a tinge of melancholic wistfulness, Sau Poler's music feels bright, modern and intimate – distilling his brand of disco-inflected house music. Growing up in Badalona, close to Barcelona along the Catalonian coast, Soler started out producing instrumental hip hop and downtempo but has since evolved his sound. In the past few years he has played on stages around the world, including many venues in Europe, Mexico, NYC and at Barcelona’s own Sónar. Since 2013 he has released several EPs on Amsterdam’s Atomnation label as well as remixing a plethora of artists. One of a new wave of electronic producers emerging from the cultural hub of Barcelona, along with peers such as John Talabot and Pional, Sau Poler makes accessible and uplifting dance music with a subtle balearic undertow.
Formed in 2012 Frame/Frame is the electronic music project of Nikhil Kaul. A versatile music producer, Frame/Frame produces fluid, downtempo ear worms to slick dancefloor grooves. Over 3 years, he has released 3 critically acclaimed EPs. He recently collaborated with legendary UK based, Asian underground producer Talvin Singh for an episode on the show MTV Sync.
He has been nominated at the VH1 Sound Nation Awards for the ‘Best New Artist’ and ‘Best Video’ categories and he has been shortlisted for the Toto Funds the Arts Award. His sets range from solo to live performances featuring Sahil Mendiratta, drummer of Indigo Children.
Soulspace distances himself with more exploratory tempos and an experimental beat-maker approach, of which cities like Los Angeles or London are particularly well known for. Yet, the electronica producer behind Soulspace, is worlds apart – hailing from Bangalore, India. Capable of shifting an aural ambience from downtempo summertime grooves to more club friendly music in a blink of an eye - he produces tracks with melodic, soulful and straight up dance ﬂoor sensibilities.
Recently, launching himself with a stunning debut self-titled LP, he’s already earned support from artists such as Laurent Garnier (F Communications), Claude Von Stroke (Dirtybird), Nick Warren (Hope Recordings), Kollektiv Turmstrasse (Connaisseur recordings), Komon (Aus music), Denney (Hot creations), Mark Farina (Om records), Miss Nine, Robert Owens (Off recordings), Hollis P Monroe (Noir/Defective) and Pablo Bolivar.
His live sets are deep, emotive yet dancy , which is his signature sound. Its a journey in sound with no genre constraints . As a DJ he believes not just about mixing two records but rather in telling stories with his sets infused with subliminal messages that keeps you hooked onto every beat.
