Berlin-based, Swiss-born Quarion has produced and played with a wide variety of musicians since the late nineties. First, he crafted beats and samples for hip-hop MCs, then he began shaping versatile tech house grooves as Enterplay with Geneva’s Rosario and Japan’s producer DJ Kent, or with jazz keyboardist Leo Tardin. As Ianeq, he also put out a stellar 12” with Snax on Get Physical which became a classic of 90s drum and bass.
A moody yet gregarious soul, Quarion has co-founded the vinyl-only Retreat imprint and is a member of Drumpoet Community. Both labels are his favorite outlets for the widescreen, uplifting house with instrumental flourishes he creates today.
Quarion uses the stage for masterful DJ sets or his ever evolving, semi-improvised live performances with the same determination and hopeful inspiration he already blew into his sax and scratched his vinyl with as a teenager.
