Straight from the Paris underground comes Traumer, an artist who has an innate ability to weave subtle narratives and deeply nuanced rhythms into his mesmerising music. The mastermind behind Gettraum, a platform where he releases his experimentations with house on a minimal tip, Traumer delivers hypnotic performances and music that has the support of his peers and idols. Now beginning a new phase of his musical career, joining the Lola ED family and starting a second label, plus a residency at Rex Club and several other key projects, Traumer’s story is about to enter an exciting chapter…
His dexterity in the studio is evident in his back catalogue with straight up techno released with powerhouse labels like Cocoon and Desolat, with more recent cuts focused on a deeper, more considered house sound. Perfect for hypnotizing dance floors, he has cultivated a mature sound that is subtle yet moves the body. Organic sounding percussion and pulsating basslines work in unison at the core of his productions, with deep grooves that lock you in tight and refuse to relent.
This sound has caught the attention of promoters around the globe, leading to gigs from Amnesia in Ibiza to Rex Club in Paris, Button Factory (Dublin), Metro Dance Club (Alicante) and internationally renowned festivals such as Exit festival in Serbia, Igloofest (Canada), B.My.Lake (Hungary) and Astropolis Festival. He is the bossman at his own label; Gettraum, which has become universally respected in the short time it has been around. Launched in early 2016, Gettraum has allowed to Traumer to fully explore his penchant for killer basslines and ethnic influences. In his music you can hear tablas from India, strings and wind instruments from the Middle East and deep pan-African rhythms merged with the rich history of house and techno from Europe and America. It’s a combination of elements that is often subtle, though highly effective, and part of Traumer’s rich musical DNA.
Already a key figure in the French underground, Traumer continues to work tirelessly on his music, fueled by an unrelenting passion to express himself. With a wealth of natural talent and flair for production combined with his nonstop work and dedication to refining his craft, next chapter of Traumer’s story is already being written…
