Partenaire’s latest track ‘VSXV [Velvet Sundowns by Venus]’ is available for pre-order via Electronic Groove Records.
“In my book, the after-hours is quite a “unique” experience. There are no gimmicks, no massive led screens, no VJs, stage lights, or go-go dancers. A lot of ammo has been spent, more will be bought, and the “seriousness” of the club night is done and dusted. Most of us already got what we came for, and are looking to extend those good times, but we’re a bit more open to experimentation. Both as ravers and as artists. So, to me, the afters is where I let go of the storyline and just do whatever the fuck I want. Amped up, a bit more brash, and led by that electronic psychedelia, this is Partenaire, after-hours.” – Partenaire
A balancing act, Partenaire’s sound treads with elegance and raw emotion over twilight. Powerful, yet intimate, his creations traffic a unique sensibility for expression.
Blazing his own trail, Partenaire has released music on some of the most forward-thinking labels on the scene, including Plattenbank, Recovery Collective, onedotsixtwo, Auditen, Juicebox, and Clubsonica, while gaining recognition from legendary tastemakers across the board, such as Hernán Cattáneo, Nick Warren, and Anthony Pappa.
After almost a decade of celebrated productions, 2021 saw the release of his ‘Modern Mantras’ LP on onedotsixtwo, an emotion-driven album that saw Partenaire bind progressive house with trance, techno, and even liquid d&b. One of the highlights of the release, ‘The Seance’, received its own music video, directed and produced by Electronic Groove, thus signaling a landmark in the artist’s career.
Partenaire is also the designer of ‘Youniverse’, his monthly radio show on FRISKYRadio. A mainstay on the airwaves, having moved over 250,000 listeners since its initial broadcast.
