About this artist

Pablo Nouvelle is a Swiss DJ, filmmaker and producer. A former architecture student turned film maker and musician, Nouvelle makes songs from a combination of new and old samples.
Pablo Nouvelle's debut album, PABLO NOUVELLE, self-released in 2013, was crafted meticulously in his home studio and was deeply rooted in his fascination with the history of American soul music. In the UK especially, it was received with great enthusiasm. Mixmag described it as "Essential Listening" and BBC Radio 6, Radio X and Wonderland Magazine shared a similar view. Two EPs were later released by the London-based Black Butter Records.
Pablo Nouvelle's first musical love was hip-hop, especially the Wu Tang Clan. He describes discovering them as "It was like looking behind the curtain of hip hop and understanding where it all came from". Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway and Willie Wright also became his constant companions on his Walkman.
Performances at festivals such as Paléo Nyon, Transmusicales Rennes, Great Escape Festival in Brighton, or the Reeperbahn Festival in Hamburg proved that Pablo Nouvelle with his band was more than capable of making the transition from studio to stage.
