Ne.Hau Ren Albieri / Danny Marin Austin/Denver Ne.hau (Danny Marin and Renato Albieri) You’d be hard pressed to find contemporary up-and-comers who are as qualified to build on the legacy of the minimal genre as Ne.hau. By utilizing cutting-edge production methods to take calculated creative risks, the DJ/producer duo brings unprecedented dimension to the house and techno spectrum. Between singles like “Little Humans” and their Christian Thomas collaboration, “I Believe” (which came out on Circus Digital Records and Draft Ltd, respectively), the duo’s music has already been received quite well. Their 2016 Kill Switch EP, on which the latter track came out, even remained in Beatport’s Minimal Top 10 for roughly two weeks. Each of the outfit’s releases not only demonstrates keen attention to sound quality, but also speaks to a reverence for the process that could only result from genuine musical passion. In addition to crisp stereo imaging, each soundscape features organic and instrumental sounds - and fittingly, they’ve incorporated such elements into their engaging live shows as well. Ne.hau consists of Danny Marin and Ren Albieri, who hail from Denver and Austin, respectively. When you take into account their combined tenure in the music world, it comes as no surprise that they have achieved such a finely tuned signature sound.
