Albert van Abbe
Eindhoven’s Albert van Abbe has been involved in many different musical projects over the past 15 years. Currently focused on making absorbing techno under his own name, he has found a unique creative niche where manic percussion, searching synths and wide open soundscapes exist in perfect harmony. There is a serenity to his music that is soothing and calming, while at the same time, arresting and experimental. Besides his own VANABBE and No Comment labels, he has released on tasteful outlets like Curle, Semantica, Deep Sound Channel and ESHU.
Van Abbe is also a live performer, speaking volumes through his machines. Recently, he has performed live shows at Berghain, Awakenings and ADE. When not crafting melancholic and salubrious atmospheres of his own, he brings this depth outwards, hosting events titled DRUM. van Abbe has become a vital pillar of the global techno scene.
