How many years does it take before you officially become ” a veteran”? Belgian producer Raphaël de Sauvage has been bossing it on the underground scene since 96, so we reckon he’s earned that title without much sweat – Dj Mag Uk

From 2001 til 2009 his Digital FM Show for Vibration Radio brought out a crop of Belgian guests that are better know today under their alias as The Magician, Mugwump and Aeroplane.

The chameleonic producer, which privilege of being independent from the usual constraints of the music industry, has been penning fusions of ’80s pop, dark basslines, and unhinged house beats since the mid-noughties – combinations that are by his standarts “non-formulaic”, getting his Cabaret Nocturne cloak on in 2013.

Since launching the project, he has released music on a respectable label list including My Favorite Robot, Beachcoma, Nein, Factor City, Rotten City, Roam, Disque Discos, Join Our Club and many more.

Identified as a producer of the electronic slo-mo scene with his personal style incorporating dark disco elements and cyborgian croons, he has got press recognition with some important reviews like Dj Magazine, Mixmag, Tsugi as well as support of may reputable radio stations like KRCW (US) or NTS (UK). About that, his “Blinded Trust” track – slow punk masterpiece which has had over 1,5 million views on Youtube – made Cabaret Nocturne a household name.

With his musical vision he gained support from the cream of the contemporary electronic dance music crop such as Andre Weatherall, Chloé, Cosmo Vitelli, Damian Lazarus, Daniele Baldelli, Dixon, Erol Alkan, Ewan Pearson, Fairmont, Ivan Smagghe, Jennifer Cardini, The Hacker, Tim Sweeney…

Then there’s his quarterly “K7 Nocturne” podcast that sweeps up some of the shiniest exclusives and upcoming tracks from his fingertips, showing that one thing’s for certain: Raph’s got staying power.

Focusing on an ever broadening horizon, he contining constantly his production efforts hiding himself beneath his bowler hat.
