Balance 016 Album Release Party Held At Secret Location In NYC 5/21

Biatch Corp welcomes acclaimed French DJ Agoria to New York City to celebrate their 3rd Year anniversary on Friday, May 21st, in a brand new perfect secret loft location in Manhattan. Hot off the heels of his acclaimed Balance 016 edition and a successful Winter Music Conference debut, forward-thinking Frenchman Agoria is set to kick off his North American tour in NYC as he makes his way to the Movement Electronic Music Festival in Detroit. With his recent spell-binding DJ sets at the Listed Balance album release party and at the infamous Sunday School For Degenerates party in Miami, Agoria is now ready to bring his distinct track selection and mixing style to some of North America's most forward thinking venues.

Agoria, otherwise known as Sebastien Devaud wasn't bitten by the dance music bug until he was out of his teens, but once he began hunting imported 12"s from the US and Germany in his native France, there was no turning back. His production career began in 1999, with his debut album Blossom and first compilation following in 2003 - and it was clear even in those early days that a serious new talent was emerging. Blending the throb and groove of deeper, stripped-back techno with a keen sense of musicality, emotion and atmosphere, his is a sound that transcends beyond mere dancefloor disposability. His 2007 At The Controls compilation set a new standard for minimal tech-house with its impeccable programming and seductive mixing.

2010 has marked a banner year for Agoria with the release of Balance 016. After raising the bar to unprecedented heights in 2009 with Joris Voorn and Will Saul's stunning additions to the Balance series, Agoria provides yet another standard-setting mix from one of the most sophisticated, forward thinking, and inspiring names in techno. "The concept of both CDs is all about balance. Literally. In my mind a balance is not a middle position; it's a perfect equilibrium. I'm trying to be as close as possible to this idea. I have tried to find this fine line where the balance is just right." To accomplish this perfectly-weighted contrast, he's cherry-picked from a myriad of genres and subgenres in his "beat open-minded" fashion, combining a wealth of material from newcomers across the spectrum (including no less than 12 exclusives!) with more established producers, classics and unknown gems from his broad musical past, and put it all together in an unconventional, challenging manner. "In the end, more than a DJ compilation, this is a manifesto of my passion for music and for mixing" he explains.

Balance 016: Agoria has been hailed as the compilation of the month by several publications including IDJ Magazine, Tillate Magazine, Raveline, Tsugi, DMC, Inpress, 3D, Time Off. This superb compilation is as deep and rewarding as a well-woven novel, the dénouement of the story unfolding as the mix evolves through Agoria's musical DNA. Yet another essential addition to the compilation series that is fast becoming the new benchmark for ambitious DJs and demanding listeners alike.

Ascii.Disko is the project of multi-instrumentalist/DJ Kat D.D. Rokk.
