In the trend-driven universe of electronic dance music, Gregor Tresher is the rare artist who transcends such cycles. His secret? A relentless focus on melody and timbre, timeless musical elements that other producers often undervalue. Just as a painting or a photograph appears to move if one stares at it long enough, close listening to the stratified grooves and melodies in T!resher's music reveals an organic universe of shifting sound. !
Gregor Tresher began his career as a DJ in Frankfurt in the early '90s; today, he can be found plying that trade at venues around the world, from Berlin to Tokyo, Sydney to Los Angeles. Following two critically-acclaimed albums credited to his Sniper Mode alias, Tresher broke through as a producer under his own name via his 2005 releases Still and Neon, his remix of Sven Väth's "Komm," and his contribution to Cocoon'sCompilation F, "Full Range Madness." His 2008 classic "A Thousand Nights" was the year's best-selling Techno track on Beatport and introduced Gregor to a larger audience.
In early 2013, right after releasing his „System X“ 4-track EP on Adam Beyer ?s Drumcode imprint, another collaboration EP with Petar Dundov on Music Man („Solstice / In The Woods“) and his second remix for Moby („The Lonely Night“), another dream comes true: This next remix was of personal importance to Gregor since it was for a band that has inspired his career from the beginning – Depeche Mode. Pure inspiration drove this collaboration for a song called “Soothe My Soul”, which is the second single off of their current album, Delta Machine. Gregor was one of only a select group enlisted and consequently the only producer with two different remixes set for c!ommercial release. !
In July 2013, Gregor released „Nightcolors“, his fifth studio-album. It embodied the signature Tresher-sound from peak hour, techno-driven dance floor bangers („Permafrost“, „Black Relief“) over darker electronica tracks that mark a connection to his earlier Sniper Mode works („Pelican Dreaming“, „Apparition“), to lush and cerebral soundscapes that shaped the album into a complete listening experience - and of course there are the signature sounding melodic tracks that Gregor ?s name had become a trademark for („Nightcolors“ and his Cocoon hitsingle „About A Good Place“). To round things off in style, no one else than French icon Laurent Garnier delivered a remix for the t!itle track.!
Accompanying the release, Gregor embarked on another extensive album tour that included a mixture of exclusive live performances as well as DJ gigs starting at the end of May at Movement Detroit (US). The tour then touched down on some of the most prolific music festivals and clubs in the world such as Love Family Park (DE), Exit Festival (RS), Sonar (ES),
