Berlin-based, Swiss-born Yanneck Salvo has been releasing hip-hop, house and techno under the production alias Ianeq since 1999. After a couple of releases on Mental Groove, A Few Among Others and Get Physical, Yanneck felt the need to go back to his deep house roots and started producing as Quarion for Drumpoet Community in 2006. His unique blend of house grooves, techno deepness and b-boy aesthetics caught the ears of music heads worldwide and he went on to release remixes for labels such as Connaisseur, Future Classic, Resopal, Four:twenty and Quintessentials.

Nowadays Quarion’s remixes breathe fresh air into already influential house and techno cuts, as evidenced on the best-selling Kompakt, DJ-Kicks and Compost Black Label CD series. Tracks by Dirt Crew, Agnes, Alex Attias, Jagged and others have been reworked and shot into orbit while his take on Jamie Lloyd’s “May I?” and Andres Garcia’s “No More Tears” are paraded by world-class DJs. These frequent flyers have been charting Quarion’s own productions since half a decade, when the likes of Rainer Trüby, Michael Rütten and Lars Behrenroth repped his superb, housey broken beat “Reset” EP done as Ianeq. That jazz and hip-hop background still transpired through Quarion’s “Karasu”, heavily endorsed by Âme and Dixon, while his admiration for dub grooves and Detroit techno deepness (or vice-versa) blossomed into a timely contribution to them.

Having early on released a stunning tribute to Mad Mike entitled “The Light”, touring with Motor City ambassadors Theo Parrish and Omar-S was a natural fit. A moody yet gregarious soul, Quarion is a member of Drumpoet Community, outlet number one for the widescreen, uplifting house with instrumental flourishes he creates today.

By now a well-heeled alumni of high end clubs such as Womb in Tokyo, Tape in Berlin, APT in NYC, Rex in Paris, Zukunft in Zurich or tours of Australia, USA and Israel, Quarion takes the stage for a soulful DJ set or one of his always renewed, semi-improvised live performances with the same determination and hopeful inspiration he already blew into his sax and scratched his vinyl with as a teenager. Music casts a spell on all of us through people like him.

After spending most of 2008 on the road, Quarion is currently focusing on studio work for an upcoming album.
