    Sónar by Day - SonarHall

In trance

2017 will finally see the release of the long awaited first album from Evian Christ; on none other than Warp Records, as well as a brand new live show, which he is currently in the midst of preparing. Sónar by Day will offer a rare opportunity anywhere in the world to see him perform this year. The young and extraordinary British producer has already discovered a very personal and instantly recognizable sound. From day one he has mixed hip-hop beats with 90s trance progressions and resonances, adding elements of advanced grime. His last performance at Sónar saw him collaborate with Emmanuel Biard for his onstage show and reached prodigious heights. This year promises to be even better, after months of intense work in the studio.

Evian Christ’s impact on the scene was immediate and his continued development has only strengthened those early impressions: first were the “Kings And Them” EP and experimental mixtape “Duga-3”, both released on Tri Angle in 2012; then came a call from Kanye West to be part of the “Yeezus” (2013) team of producers, as well as his second EP “Waterfall” (2014) on Robin Carolan’s label, where he clearly defined his own sound. His 2015 tour brought him to Sónar, in addition to remixing Ben Frost, Young Thug and Kamixlo, among many others. And 2017 will be the year of his final consecration with the unveiling of his first album.
