Albert van Abbe FIGURE Jams / Semantica / DRUM Dates: www.albertvanabbe.nl Bookings: firstname.lastname@example.org Live A/V projects: email@example.com Eindhoven’s rave veteran Albert van Abbe has been involved in many different musical and audio-visual projects for almost 2 decades. Currently focused on making absorbing techno under his own name, he has found a unique creative niche where manic percussion, searching synths and wide open soundscapes exist in perfect harmony. There is a serenity to his music that is soothing and calming, while at the same time, arresting and experimental. Besides his own labels, he has released on tasteful outlets like FIGURE Jams, Semantica, Echcord Colour, Uncanny Valley's Shtum, Deep Sound Channel and Trolldans. Van Abbe is a DJ as well as live performer, speaking volumes through his machines. He played shows at Berghain, Awakenings, Tresor and DGTL just to mention a few. When not crafting melancholic and salubrious atmospheres of his own he brings this depth outwards, hosting events (and label) DRUM in Eindhoven and abroad.
