After years of of unavaibilty on digital, the back catalog of Agoria releases on Infiné is now back on store on Sapiens Recordings the new own imprint of Agoria. Agoria will release his new album this year.

A few weeks from the opening of the 2010 Soccer World Cup, Sébastien Devaud made a promise: instead of relaxing on sunny terraces, watching the events unfold on wide outdoor screens, he spent the whole of summer locked up in his home studio – “The Circle Room” in Lyon.
Agoria has been breathing life into his productions through the use of ‘real’ sounds. As early as 2007, Agoria invited Francesco Tristano and Rami Khalifé to work on the arrangements of “Les Violons Ivres”. On “Solarized” and “Dust”, he laced his electronic soundscapes with the voice of Scalde. In his mixes as well as in his own productions, Agoria is on a permanent quest for the right balance between the Authentic and the Synthetic, the Classical and the Modern, the Body and the Mind. With “Grande Torino” and “For One Hour”, he moved one step closer to completing this quest.
“Grande Torino” is a true coup de théâtre. Agoria opens this new masterpiece with an almost manic, metronome-like kick, building it up gradually with cosmic and ethereal layers of piano. This subtle equilibrium between pressure and release reaches its climax at the
8th minute, when a breathtaking break of celestial violins is unleashed.
In many respects, “For One Hour” could be compared to Bel Canto. It features Scalde at his best. His androgynous and decadent tone contributes, with great virtuosity, to the lyricism of the guitars and cellos of his maestro’s composition and adds the finishing touches to this modern House gem.
