Brian Sanhaji

When Brian the young innovator, came across a music program on a friend´s Amiga 500, the desire to produce his own sound started to grow within. In the beginning he experimented with Hip Hop beats, but triggered by a Prodigy gig he started focusing more and more on techno. As much as for many of his contemporaries in the nineties, the legendary “Omen” club in Frankfurt served as a source of inspiration for him. His first two records under the pseudonym “Relic” were released on the label Triebtäter in 2000 and 2001.

After this he took the next step and founded his own label Enable Recordings, on which he presents artists like The Advent or Andre Walter, next to his own productions. Little by little, Brian got the opportunity to release on other labels as well, for instance Punkt Music, Phobiq, EgoTon and Definition Records. At the same time he produced the project ‘Citizen Art’ together with the artist Cess, and amongst others released a remix for ‘The Horrorist’ on Things To Come.

But ultimately it was his own releases that turned him into a much requested live act. In the course of his transfer to CLR Booking, his booking schedule increased from the main floor of Nature One to the Detroit Electronic Music Festival in the States to his preliminary peak at “Spinclub” / Ibiza. Next to his well-established label Enable Recordings, he founded another imprint called Sonata Music in the beginning of 2008. Although it was planned as a digital only label, he started releasing the tracks on vinyl as well, due to the big success.

The album prerelease single “Cortosis”, together with a remix by Chris Liebing preceded the long awaited first studio album ‘Stereotype’, finally released on his all-time favorite Techno label CLR. “A stylistically versatile, entirely club oriented record with traces of Minimal, House and Dub, always true to its Techno origins.”

When Brian is not touring as a live act, or producing new tracks and remixes, he is also working as a highly successful mastering technician with clients like CLR, Cocoon Recordings or Spinclub Recordings, just to mention a few.  He continues to produce for CLR with a collaboration with Drumcell last year and the ‘Daria EP’ this year.
