In the trend-driven universe of electronic dance music, Gregor Tresher is the rare artist who transcends such cycles. His
secret? A relentless focus on melody and timbre, timeless musical elements that other producers often undervalue. Just as a
painting or a photograph appears to move if one stares at it long enough, close listening to the stratified grooves and melodies
in Tresher‘s music reveals an organic universe of shifting sound.
„Melody always allows you to bring something new to the music,“ opines the producer. „It is where you can create something
real and different, whereas the beat… well, either a record grooves or it doesn‘t.“ Tresher‘s approach to writing music
eschews obvious eight-bar earworms that soon grow tiresome in favor of musical lines that repeat and intertwine in myriad
patterns, unfolding to reveal their secrets as you listen.
Gregor Tresher began his career as a DJ in Frankfurt in the early ‚90s; today, he can be found plying that trade at venues
around the world, from Berlin to Tokyo, from Sydney to Los Angeles. Following two critically-acclaimed albums credited
to his Sniper Mode alias, Tresher broke through as a producer under his real name via his 2005 releases Still and Neon. His
2008 classic „A Thousand Nights“ was the year‘s best-selling Techno track on Beatport and introduced Gregor to a larger
audience. Besides releasing music on high-profile labels like Drumcode, Ovum, Intacto, Moon Harbour and Cocoon, Gregor
launched his own eclectic imprint ”Break New Soil“ in 2009 on which his studio albums The Life Wire (2009), Lights From
The Inside (2011), Nightcolors (2013) and Quiet Distortion (2016) were released. In late 2017, Gregor launched his second
label „GTO“ (Gregor Tresher Originals). His remix history includes artists like Depeche Mode, Moby, Sven Väth, Laurent
Garnier and Extrawelt amongst many others.
