Ténéré - Ténébris (NOW058)
Ténéré is a French music producer with a taste for bikes and baroque music. While being raised and classically trained in a family of musicians, he was all about Jean-Sébastien Bach in his teens until he fell for French rap, electronica and ultimately James Blake whose track The Bells Sketch was a true revelation and encouraged him to make music. After a couple EPs on the French label No Format as half of the electronic music duo Vendredi, Pierre-Élie decided to start a new personal project. While Tenebris mechanical beats and twisted melodies evoke a sense of velocity, listening to the flipside In Lucem will send you into a state of weighlessness thanks to its multi-layered harmonies and the soulful voice of Clara Sergent.
