More on Anoraak
Anoraak first appeared in 2008 with the underground classic Nightdrive With You. Several LPs/EP's and a whole bunch of remixes later (Neon Indian, Mika, College, Metronomy, Junkie XL...) he is today a reference in the synthwave / retrowave and indie-dance genres.
After years on the road worldwide behind the DJ desks or front stage singing and playing his music live, he'll be back June 2nd 2017 with a new EP Black Gold Sun, including the synthpop song Evolve featuring Danish singer Lydmor. The cover is designed by Alexander 'Zonders' Burkhart, godfather of retro inspired artworks (College, Valerie Collective, Discodust, Miami Horror, and many more).
?Black Gold Sun is the balance point between synthwave and synthpop, two worlds wherein Anoraak has always loved to navigate, and is a logical follow-up to his previous opus Figure, which includes the acclaimed track We Lost feat. Slow Shiver, premiered on major electronic music media Dancing Astronaut and playlisted by KCRW's LA dj Raul Campos, Goldroom, Satin Jackets, Spotify Mexico among others.
?The Figure music video was recently premiered by the trend-setter siteNowness, and received a lot of support, including major french media siteClique TV or MTV Asia.
?Anoraak's new live show is a solo act, surfing smartly between a vocal / instrumental performance and a modern electronic live set built for the dancefloor.?
