5951In the field of electronic music, Gregor Tresher is by no means a debutant. For more than ten years the thirty-three-year old DJ and producer from Frankfurt has gathered merits modernizing the algorithms of electronic music. It has been his “Still EP” in 2005 that upgraded him into the Champions League of European techno producers. After many highlight releases like “Neon”, “Full Range Madness”, “The Wombat”, or “The Now People” on labels such as Intacto, Cocoon, Great Stuff, Datapunk, or Rebel One, it was his eagerly-awaited debut album “A Thousand Nights” that defined the state of the art of electronic dance music in 2008, with its title track beeing the year’s bestselling techno track on Beatport. Also, the readers of German magazine Raveline awarded Gregor as “Producer of the Year” for the second time in a row.

Gregor’s musical roots have always been electronic music. With his project Sniper Mode, he tried to achieve an aesthetic development of the motorbeat from the beginning, releasing two critically-acclaimed artist albums on Frankfurt’s electronica label Elektrolux. But the releases under his real name for Anthony Rother’s Datapunk Recordings, his remix for Sven Väth’s “Komm”, and his contribution to Cocoon’s Compilation F (“Full Range Madness”) mainly introduced Gregor to a bigger audience.

Gregor’s current musical direction is underlined by DJ gigs at prime clubs worldwide: from London to Barcelona, from Sao Paulo to Toronto, from Moscow to Istanbul, from Paris to New York. “To play anything from deep tech-house to techno in one set and present it in an exciting voyage is what modern DJ-ing means to me.”

However, techno has never been a fixed category for his production and DJ-ing, but more of an open reference system between past, present and future of electronic music. “With musical roots ranging from new wave classics by New Order or Anne Clarke to German techno of the early nineties to classic Detroit techno and house, I see my own musical direction in a constant development.”

In 2008 Gregor’s releases “Break New Soil” on Moon Harbour Records and his remix for Dubfire’s Label Sci+Tec already showcased new facets in Gregor’s sound, and it seems that 2009 will become another important year: besides releasing on Josh Wink’s prestigious Ovum Recordings (“95 Days / The Joker”, March 2009), Gregor started his very own label Break New Soil Recordings. With the first release “The Heartbeat Orchestra”, Gregor once more showed his versatility as an artist, presenting two raw and massive songs that were highly praised by the press. But this was only a taste of his upcoming second album “The Life Wire”, which will showcase new exciting changes in the development of Gregor Tresher’s sound that became a quality trademark in the world of electronic music.
