Sau Poler is from Badalona, a little town on the outskirts of Barcelona. Pau Soler (his real name) ventured into music in 2012 as a way to explore his sonically-propelled curiosities, and most of all, to have fun. Influenced by various genres, but more receptive to the audio-tones of hip-hop and electronica, Sau Poler’s hefty list of inspirational peers include Aphex Twin, Boards Of Canada, Four Tet and Bonobo.
Having released his debut EP, ‘A Soundless Echo’ on Atomnation in 2013, which has since lead to a slew of support from Pete Tong, Thropics, John Talabot and a growing fan-base amongst the tastemaker and blogosphere community, Sau Poler has gone on to play notable venues and events in Barcelona (Sonar), Paris, New York and Amsterdam. His new EP ’Paradoxes Of Progress’ features plenty of new dance-floor rhythms and often brings forward an organic production style, a quality we’ve become accustom to when hearing from this up-and-coming producer.
On ’Paradoxes Of Progress’, Sau Poler continues to explore his vast musical realm, resulting in a constant flow of rapturous musical sketches. Kicking off the EP is ‘For NYC’, a twisted Balearic vocal cut that leads suitably into the RnB-tilted pop chant ‘Non Plus Ultra’. Once Poler has you firmly-placed in his musical grasp, the young producer off-loads the garage mash-up ‘Mental Invasion’, before dropping his euphoric techno workout ‘Illusion Of Time’. This five-track EP is perfectly rounded-off with the majestically embellished vocal intonate of ‘Juun’. Sau Poler’s releases consist of minimal house audio vignettes that can be simultaneously interpreted in both a euphoric and a melancholic way; his output is modern, melodic & electronic, effectively moving mind and body.
