from Berlin, label All Day I DreamBack
An expert at creating harmonious illusions of sound, Germany’s Powel always finds a way to thread together natural elegance and tasteful patience in music.
Having learned the piano at a young age and subsequently performed regularly with bands and even an orchestra, Powel’s palette of music has a vast and thorough foundation that is influenced by the people and places he comes across during his visits. The sound artist’s unique touch as a musician is heard by how he captures warm, celestial vibes filled with airy atmospheres together with delicate rhythms and tells a melancholic story fused with ghostly, low slung cuts that are rich with nuance and subtlety.
Powel steadily explores this duality in sounds not only throughout his discography but in his performances around the world which include his annual performance on the Robot Heart bus at Burning Man and residencies with the All Day I Dream family around renowned guru Lee Burridge as well as Behrouz’ intimate home in Miami, Do Not Sit On The Furniture, and one of the finest institutions in New York City, Bespoke Music.
On the production front, eager ears will soon be treated to new EPs on the horizon in addition to various remixes and a debut album – all planes for 2020.
It’s rare to hear an artist so intimately blur the line between uplifting pieces of music and raw, emotive records that exude the soul of deep house in some of its purest forms. A true artist in every sense of the word, Powel’s genius for storytelling is always a special affair for the enthusiast.
