a melting pot of various moods wrapped up in electro sounds



Artaban is an electro band from Luxembourg founded by Charles and Max Nilles.
Their first album, called “Landscapes” was released in 2008. Some critics favourably described it as a cross between Röyksopp and Boards of Canada.
After numerous concerts (among others as support for Modeselektor, Apparat, Foals, Wax Tailor, Sebastien Tellier, M83), a multitude of remixes and collaborations for movie soundtracks, Artaban released their second album, called “Flow” in 2013 in collaboration with the label Chez Kito Kat Records. Artaban’s second Opus bears an analog touch. Flirting at times with electro-pop, yet keeping a darker energy and sound, this evolution also translates into the addition of vocals on some tracks.

The band is actually recording new tracks and a new album is expected for the end of the year 2021

Artaban construit la bande son d’une vacation urbaine où les ruelles obscures sont entrecoupées des flashs de lampadaires épileptiques.
À découvrir absolument

Étonnante fusion entre la house, le disco et le synthwave. Une alchimie dont seul Kuston Beater connait les secrets et qui nous charme par sa légèreté et sa profondeur. Tout est à point sur ce disque, les moments plus calmes vous feront vibrer tout autant que l’euphorie des morceaux dansants.
