‘OBSOLETE’ FOLLOWS ON ‘ATLAS INTERNET CAFÉ’, RELEASED IN DECEMBER LAST YEAR
AMSTERDAM, April 2, 2019 – Few artists have a creative output as consistent and free-flowing as Pablo Nouvelle, and today’s release spotlights that gift of his. Even though the Swiss musician released a seven-piece album called ‘Atlas Internet Café’ in December 2019, that didn’t stop him bringing another collection of magical tracks into existence four months later: ‘Obsolete’.
Building on its predecessor by employing more club-focused instrumental tactics, ‘Obsolete’ touches firmly on the theme of mankind’s non-sustainable way of living. Classified by its creator as music to dance and dream to, the album brings together the colorful and warm as well as the dirty and playful, from known tracks such as ‘The Kármán Line’ and ‘Oh Would You Be There’ to fresh conjurations such as ‘Saltburn’ and ‘Irritation’. Suitable for all kinds of listening sessions, ‘Obsolete’ consistently flirts with the idea of escaping to outer space, and that’s exactly what draws listeners in.
Talking about the link between ‘Atlas Internet Café’ and ‘Obsolete’, Pablo Nouvelle said: “I originally wanted to do a two-sided album and thought for a long time that it would turn into a day-and-night kind of thing. In the end, the concepts turned out very different from each other, but the idea of having a downtempo chill-out album and an up-tempo dance record remained. I’m glad to have gotten them into this world, and I hope they touch as many people as possible.”
Since bursting into the scene, Pablo Nouvelle has more than earned his stripes. Having mastered a range of different styles and influences that thrive in the gentle, soulful mixture of sound he calls his own, he is an in-demand remixer and producer who has worked with the likes of Jessie Reyez, Anne-Marie, Bruno Major and Josef Salvat, all the while stepping up on remix duty for Aurora, Gorgon City and Marina & the Diamonds. When Pablo Nouvelle isn’t pursuing music, he is an acclaimed animation filmmaker with three award-winning short films to his name. ‘In A Nutshell’, his latest, was longlisted for an Oscar.
