Gabriel Le Mar
On his solo albums Gabriel produces tracks, which are tailored for the Dub inspired clubber, combining different playful approaches of Dub with the functionality and stringency of TechnoHouse music. Bridges are built by energetic and minimal grooves. The Dub-feeling is clearly the inspiration behind his sound. Gabriel Le Mar skillfully mixed his Dub universe on his albums "Dubistalles", "Benevolent Chaos", "Level" or "Dubwize" and demonstrates innovative efforts to offer interesting hybrids of techno/house music. It`s all about combining these styles. Classic Dub-effects meeting uptempo beats.
With an open mind and always in a search for fresh musical experiences Gabriel Le Mar likes to integrate himself in different artistic constellations with project pseudonyms such as Saafi Brothers and Aural Float into ambient, space and experimental soundscapes…
With Aural Float, Gabriel Le Mar explored the leftfield side of electronic music. The project produced three albums with an emphasis on live sound manipulations, fat basslines and deep emotional Electronica.
Next to his music projects Gabriel also worked with "Aural Float" on audiovisual concepts: as a team they artistcally supervised SPACENIGHT, a prototype of a TV-concept, utilizing spectacular film- and documentary footage from outer space with music made on Earth. A spacy sound to accompany the viewer for hours in space. [Invalid Artist] became a success on German television and soon reached cult status among the young night watchers until today. Deep space in the wee hours - on air since 1996. End-of-Days sound for the next generation.
Saafi Brothers got deeper into ambient-dub and add drum trills, that got the tunes rocking. The secret of the Saafi Brothers albums is the "danceable speed" in ambient tracks. Mostly starting with deep intros and then merging into dubbish beats for the floor, the one can especially experience in their live performances.
In the following years Gabriel Le Mar received wide acclaim for his genre crossing Dub to leftfield productions with Saafi Brothers, Aural Float and solo.
Gabriel Le Mar keeps on making waves. With a mixture of Reggae influenced Dub, House and deep Dubtechno sounds, he creates a unique connection with his new project Dublocation. In his coop with Dr. Motte Gabriel steps on a new ground releasing electronic dance music with a special focus on the various colours of Techno. Their releases "Dr. Motte meets Gabriel Le Mar" bring together elements of both ends of the Techno/Electronica spectrum, lovingly creating the pure aspects of dance music.
THE SOUND OF GABRIEL LE MAR On the floor Gabriel is playing a set with live-overdubs that always celebrate the moment in a jam from DeepTechHouse and Techno. His DJ-sets are traversed by soulful and minimal nuances. "Concerning energy and flow I love going through waves - flowing grooves, sometimes pushing and forcing, and deep soundscapes that make you dance and feel.“
Expect deep + soulful Live+DJ-sets...
