Swedish producer Aril Brikha, born 1976 in Iran, migrated to Stockholm at age 3. There he discovered his passion for electronic music in his early teens. Influenced by Depeche Mode, Front 242 and Jean Michel Jarre, and later by Robert Hood and Underground Resistance, he started using a sequencer at the age of 16 to compose his own music - without knowing which musical trend he’d kick off with that in europe: Friends told him his music was Detroit Techno.Still, his sound didn’t match the taste of swedish labels at that time, so Aril sent off his demo’s to his favorite labels in the States. He got in touch with three independent labels, among those Derrick May’s Transmat. His release “Art Of Vengeance EP” (featuring “Groove La Chord") was then released in 1998 on its sister label Fragile. Now a new star of Deep Techno, Aril Brikha went on tour with his live show playing all over the world, including the Detroit Electronic Music festival and clubs like Fabric, Air, and Yellow, and hasn’t stop doing so ever since. As one of the most innovative producers from Europe, he went on to release the clubhit EP “Winter” on Kompakt, more releases on Pokerflat followed. In summer 2007 his long awaited Album follow-up was released by Peacefrog - a classic Detroit Techno / House longplayer, with elements from his previous productions. “Deeparture In Time - Revisited” will be released in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of his 1999/2000 released Album on Transmat. This also kicks off his own label “Art Of Vengeance". Next to the remastered originals of Deeparture In Time, the release features a 2nd CD with 10 previously unreleased tracks that were created between 1995 and 1999. All of them take us on a time travel to the 90ies, with a sound still prevalent in modern productions, as pure as can be. This one’s for the lovers of the early Detroit Techno with that unique Aril Brikha twist, and all those who’d like to discover it: One Chord To Rule Them All.
