Founder of Xtralife Records, Tristan Garner returns to the front of the battlefield with a staggering beast of a track. “Imperium” is intoxicating, electric mayhem ready to shatter the barriers of modern electro. There is no better way to describe it except as a powerful monster sitting high on its throne, ready to go to war and take the roof down by force.
As one of the most distinct talents to emerge from the burgeoning French club scene, Tristan Garner’s renegade stance upon global club land has rallied many an admirer, making his 360-degree industry overhaul an unforgettable force of musical anarchy. From such landmark studio offerings as “Last Forever” alongside Norman Doray through to A-list remix duties for the likes of Zedd, Armin Van Buuren, and Tiësto, Tristan’s musical calling card has remained a welcomingly distinct affair. Within the leaps and bounds between his Digital Rocker EP and such acclaimed singles as “Punx” and “Machine Gun,” that high-octane getup has been embedded upon dance floors across the globe, adding to his attested trend for bringing new and exciting noise to the peak time skyline.
Behind the decks, Tristan is just as positively unconventional. Renowned for his speedy mixing, off-the-cuff bootlegs, and mash-ups and juxtapositions of music from every imaginable avenue, his refined and perfectionistic approach has turned heads across the globe. Holding his own residency at Vessel San Francisco and preparing to trail the globe with his adrenaline-fuelled showmanship, Tristan has ascended to the ranks of floor-filling punk with seamless stamina. His own Xtra Life imprint has seen the French talent steer his own industry vessel towards the sound of his musical ambitions, collecting new talents and his own solo offerings along the way.
