21.09 | Wonderland Event with AGORIA (France) in CHI
No kidding, no hype, and no allegory—our new guest is Agoria!
On September 21, Agoria will be the main guest of Wonderland Event in CHI! The creator of own universe of sounds. The dark prince of French electronic scene. This is Sébastien Devaud. With the onset of darkness, his name is uttered in an enthusiastic whisper...
By the way, going back to the allegory, it will play the leading role at this party, as it is an artistic embodiment of magical decorations, fairy-tale characters, and performances.
Especially for Wonderland Event, our team will season the club with fabulousness to set off everyone on a hypnotic musical trip.
Early noughties. Mad night Paris, hailed in the novels by Frédéric Beigbeder: the legendary Rex Club goes crazy with new music—electroclash. DJs are chasing a rare record with Stereolove. Dirty synthesizer sound, guitar distortion, and euphoric beat that hits the dance floor. Who is the author of this great hit? An Agoria.
The rest of the world learned his name a little later. The Green Armchair, the Agoria’s second album, was released in 2006. A colorful kaleidoscope with all the best from the electronic music of that era. The imperishable Baboul Hair Cuttin (everyone heard the Gui Boratto remix!), songs in collaboration with the trip hop legend Tricky and Peter Murphy from the post-punk band Bauhaus—the apocalyptic rave epic Edenbridge. Critics unanimously named The Green Armchair the best dance album of the year with Agoria being the revelation of European electronic music.
He is constantly reinventing himself, which is his nature. Master of dark electro and sharp synth passages, Agoria returned with the most refined deep house in the world two years later. He found his "own" vocalist. Scalde, an indie pop musician from Lyon, brightened two fateful Devaud’s numbers—singles Solarized and Dust—with his angelic voice. Then straight to the Premier League!
In 2011, Agoria released Impermanence, his monumental album. The next step was the classic techno. The endless spiral of piano chords in Panta Rei made Agoria the new star of Ibiza. His new album featured Seth Troxler and Carl Craig, and that was important. Agoria took a twisty path of related genres to the pantheon of the most influential techno and house DJs of the new decade. The podcast for RA and Fabric proved his high status, let alone Infine Music, his own notable label.
In recent years, Agoria is surprisingly accurate. He releases music not so often but each time hits the bull's eye. Separate Devaud’s vinyls are released by the best European labels of different directions. Bass music British Hotflush, cult Cologne Kompakt, Ellum Audio (Maceo Plex label), famous K7 (here we have DJ-Kicks series). Finally, Sapiens is the new Agoria’s label.
Agoria spent the first half of this year in some creative and calm mode. Surely, he is preparing something great.
Wonderland Event with Agoria in CHI is an excellent opportunity to see this. Who is he now? The main chameleon of the Paris scene of the last decade. The performer who is always one step ahead of fashion and trends.
See you at Wonderland Event with Agoria in CHI on September 21!
