Linas Strockis aka Few Nolder first emerged back in 2006 when Lithuanian label Partyzanai released his debut ‘Patterns EP’ a melting pot of black techno magic. This led to his next release ‘No Mo’ getting picked up by Mike Paradinas’ highly regarded Planet Mu and a debut selftitled album was soon to follow in 2009 to critical acclaim. His upcoming IF EP on Connaisseur Recordings has been bubbling under the surface for a while now. Check out the exclusive premiere of the title track here.
Among many exciting artistic projects, Few Nolder has been involved in the XYZ Opera performance project (since 2010) where the most talented Lithuanian opera singers together with prominent electronic music composers/artists create a unique show with visuals. Linas also started a slow balearic disco project in New Found Land in 2009, playing synth in an electronic indie cabaret band Adomas & the Mittens in 2011 and recently cofounded a pop electronic duo Dunes of Gold. But he always has his heart in DJing the most.
With live gigs throughout Lithuania and all across Europe, varied original productions (Boso, Connaisseur, Planet Mu, Silence etc), unexpected co-productions, genre bending remixes, and dynamic work with electronic operas and ballets – the last few years have been an adventurous ride. ‘Clouds’ should be the impetus to catapult Few Nolder onto the global stage.
The original cut of ‘IF’ is an incredible piece, a banger to say the least, reminiscent of bygone summer days. The intoxicating dark undertones and vocal line, however, spin the track into something completely different. Find out for yourself by pressing play.
‘IF’ EP will be released on the 27th of August on Connaisseur Recordings.
