Is a belgian musician, producer and Dj. In 2001, his very first single "Apollo Vibes" was immediately signed to Bedrock, John Digweed's label, who even chose this track to kick off his Global Underground: Los Angeles Mix. The following year several tracks were released on Bedrock, such as "Enter The Rhythm", "Waxxx" and "Dust" (n°3 in the UK Dance Charts) which sold more than 20,000 vinyl copies.
Logically Bedrock commissioned Pole Folder to write their first artist album to be released. In 2005, after two years of work "Zero Gold" was born to critical acclaim. Featuring collaborations from Sandra Ferretti, Shelley Harland and Kirsty Hawkshaw, the album garnered support from both the industry and media. Several "Zero Gold" tracks such as "Faith In Me" and "Salvation On Slavery Sins" have been featured on compilations such as Global Underground, Renaissance or US TV shows such as Nip Tuck and CSI. "Apollo Vibes" also featured in the movie "Stark Raving Mad" and "Dust" provided the music for Channel 4's advertising trailer.
In 2007, Pole Folder's "Destinations" on Frisky Radio Show, which was recorded live at various gigs worldwide, culminated a massive following. This led to Frisky asking Pole Folder to recreate this concept live in his studio, incorporating his regular Pioneer DJ set up and live instruments to release his first compilation, "Destinations".
Pole Folder, alongside business partners, launched his own label La Tour in 2009. The label’s debut release "The Way" received heavy support from Laurent Garnier, Christian Smith, and Sasha and was remixed by dance legend Spooky to become an instant hit! "Ghost Life" followed immediately, and Gregor Tresher lent his Midas touch to the release, shaking up the original to create a dark tech-house rework. The track was supported by the likes of Luciano, Karotte and Umek. The 4th release, Pole Folder’s ‘Hollow’, featuring remixes from Techno Legend Robert Babicz, and Chicago house DJ Angel Alanis has already been featured on Pete Tongs Essential Selection. Sasha also remixed Pole Folder’s "Hate Myself" in November 2009, closing Pole Folder's La Tour experience.
HELSINKI ACCORD - REWORCK – DRAGONSMOKE - DJ
Back to basics and his brand new studio "NEMO", Pole Folder is currently writing his second album "The Helsinki Accord”, due for release 4th quarter of 2010. Pole Folder is at the same time launching a new label Reworck and a side project Dragonsmoke, still playing his unique fusion of Melodic Techno and House everywhere around the globe, with fizzing slices of modern cinematic sounds from the dark and dirty dancefloors of the Chinese Laundry in Sydney, Australia to the legendary Womb in Tokyo, Japan and everywhere in between.
Now an A&R man as well as a producer and DJ, one thing remains consistent, with his musical tastes at the core of where he is and what he does, we can be guaranteed that La Tour and indeed, Pole Folder, will be setting the soundtrack to our clubbing nights for years to come.
