- Cabaret Nocturne


The chameleonic producer, with the privilege of being independent from the usual constraints of the music industry, has been penning fusions of ‘80s pop, dark basslines, and unhinged house beats since the mid-noughties - combinations that are by his standards ‘non-formulaic’, rst donned his Cabaret Nocturne cloak in 2013. Since launching the project, he has released music on a respectable label list including My Favorite Robot, Beachcoma and Nein. Identi ed as a producer of the electronic slo-mo scene with his personal style, he has got press recognition with some important reviews like DJ Magazine, Mixmag, Tsugi as well as support of many reputable radio stations like KCRW (US) or NTS (UK). About that, his 'Blind Trust' track - slow punk masterpiece which has had over 3 million views on Youtube - made Cabaret Nocturne a household name. With his musical vision he gained support from the cream of the contemporary electronic dance music crop such as Andrew Weatherall, Damian Lazarus, Dixon, Erol Alkan, Ewan Pearson, Fairmont, Ivan Smagghe, Job Jobse, Justin Robertson, Marek Hemmann, Red Axes, The Hacker, Trevor Jackson ... Then there’s his quarterly ‘K7 Nocturne’ podcast that sweeps up some of the shiniest exclusives and upcoming tracks from his ngertips, showing that one thing’s for certain: Raph’s got staying power. Focusing on an ever- broadening horizon, he constantly continues his production efforts hiding himself beneath his bowler hat. [Nov. 2018]
