Christopher Rau

Hamburg-based DJ/producer’s woozy sounds were weaving their melancholy magic for such keenly-followed local publishing houses as Smallville and Laid. Working alone or, as on this year’s 'Cloverleaf Days' with Jacques Bon, Rau’s staked out an affecting sound that marries cotton-packed miniature melodies to gently determined rhythms.

Hamburg-based DJ/producer’s woozy sounds were weaving their melancholy magic for such keenly-followed local publishing houses as Smallville and Laid. Working alone or, as on this year’s 'Cloverleaf Days' with Jacques Bon, Rau’s staked out an affecting sound that marries cotton-packed miniature melodies to gently determined rhythms.

Rau first cut his teeth on production in a hip hop style before he moved to Hamburg in 2009 and changed his focus to more four four beats; subsequently setting up his own label Derive and getting involved with local record shop and label Smallville. To date he’s spread his wings to the prestigious catalogues of Pampa, Laid and Cathedral Sounds and taking flight around the world on the club circuit as the records spread the good word of his smoothly toned analog house sound .His productions embrace multiple layers of slow moving melodies that build and build adding hints of vocals and drums, the acclaimed Asper Clouds LP has been likened to the work of Move-D which isn't suggested lightly.

These days Rau is held in the highest regard amongst his peers and is producing some of the most ground breaking atmospheric deep house around and is slowly becoming one of the most important producers in House music today. « hide
