Tresor New Faces
Wed 26 June 2019 - 23:59

DJ O.Utlier blurs the lines between styles and inverting norms, this Irish artist traverses a musical landscape between rooted 4/4 and the transcendent, the past and the future, the melancholic and the uplifting. Olmo Rodriguez aka Tevor Handa is a Spanish DJ from Sevilla. By the middle of 2010 he had moved to Berlin, attracted by the sounds of the city. It is there where he began to promote his own techno parties with a project called NOCHTE Berlin and playing in clubs like Subland, Atelier,etc. as well as many others in Spain. Influenced mainly by top respected techno artists, Tevor Handa began producing music, going deeper into Techno and releasing his first EP by the middle of 2011. Nowadays Tevor Handa has more projects going on, like the creation of his own record label and bringing Berlin to the promotion of the NOCHTE parties to the clubs of Spain. These New Faces artists are hosted by Refracted, and artist who is no stranger to Tresor. Refracted has released some of his dub-techno on labels such as Connwax and Silent Season. Deep rhythms and atmospheric elements have always played a major role in Refracted‘s music. It is techno more as an idea and conduit, than as an easily-labeled sound. It is dance music where layered rhythms act almost on a neural, sub epidermal level, while moving and evolving soundscapes acquire a tactile, understated physicality. Paramount examples of this can be found on releases on Refracted‘s own Mind Express label and other top labels like Silent Season and Pole Group. Spiritual, almost meditative, his sets possess a kinetic energy as well, which is a clear indication of a DJ who knows the fundamental role of dancing as part of the ritual. Refracted wants to take us somewhere, the “where” being of our own choosing, the trail never being the most travelled.
