ALAIN HO - Sur La Terre ep

In the rapidly evolving scene of electronic music, there are few DJ's that have seen the beginning, and even fewer that have maintained their position as forward thinking musicians over the last decades. It is without a doubt that Alain Ho aka DJ Yellow is among these select few. He purchased his first slabs of vinyl at the tender age of 13, in the year of 1979. With a pair of turntables that he acquired from his older brother, the sounds of James Brown, Barry White and more obscure contemporaries inspired him to pursue his dream to become a DJ, his chance to rise from a life in poverty in the Parisian ghetto. With influences that range from the bells of Mike Oldfield to the beats of Jeff Mills, the depths of James Holden to the drive of Josh wink, its Yellows signature blend of hypnotic techno and deephouse that he is respected for. With both drive and melancholic strains apparent in his works, Yellow is a master at weaving melodies and grooves that continue to hypnotize and energize over the course of a night. He started Yellow Productions in 1993 with Bob Sinclar signing artists as diverse as Dimitri From Paris, Kid Loco, Bang Bang, Joe Claussel, Salome de Bahia and of course Bob Sinclar himself, all of which have helped to shape the French sound, as it is today. After a decade of fruitful cooperation and dedication to helping other people's careers, Yellow finally started his Composite Records , as an outlet for his own sounds. Rebirth sign Like a Bird and Sur La Terre. They fuse characteristics of deep, funky and tech house, by using tender basses and well dosed percussion lines. A deep, sexy and warm vibe ! Watch this man, while he continues to unleash his magic, inspiring many music lovers, clubbers and artists worldwide.
