The Canadian producer will play four dates in the States in November.
The Canadian producer's history in techno starts in the late 90s, growing up in Windsor, Ontario (the same town that Richie Hawtin once called home) and eventually moving to Berlin, where he currently resides. He released several albums of minimal techno on Hawtin's Minus label before moving to start his own Items & Things imprint with Magda and Troy Pierce. That label is his primary outlet these days, along with his synth-pop influenced Raid Over Moscow project on Turbo Recordings. Houle's most recent work has moved away from straight-up techno: 2010's Drift heavily featured electric guitar and his last LP, Undercover, was described by RA's Stephane Girard as "an old-school electro-infused album with a sometimes surprising penchant for pop-like hooks."
Houle will take his career-spanning live set on the road next month, starting in Detroit on November 9th with a show at TV Bar. The following evening he'll hit Treehouse in Miami, and then after a few days' break, a Verboten party in New York City with Dan Ghenacia at SRB Brooklyn. The short string of dates will finish up in Denver at Norad Dance Bar on the 17th, with more US dates apparently yet to be announced. Tickets for the NYC event are available here on RA.
