Lavender (Hugo Paris) is an electronic musician and sound artist based in Portland, United States. His forward-thinking and ethereal pieces echo the work of artists like Four Tet, Tim Hecker, Jamie XX and Alessandro Cortini while his dance tracks have the unique driving energy known to disco legend Patrick Cowley and early Depeche Mode’s new wave.
Lavender’s first album "Mystique Youth" came out August 2015 on Jacktone Records and made it into SF Weekly ’s top 15 Bay Area albums of the year. Lavender's follow up album "Horizons Beneath the Surface" came out May 9th 2016 and was supported by multiple tours along the US west Coast and Europe throughout 2016/2017. The album received stellar reviews from XLR8R, That’s Deck, aQuarius recOrds and SF Weekly. HBTS made it into KALX Radio's Best Albums of 2016 list.
While Lavender’s studio work embodies the aesthetics of minimalism and the cinematic landscapes of post rock, his intricate audio-visual performances can range from voluptuous soundscapes to dance-floor bangers with Italo Disco overtones. Lavender’s latest scoring work can be heard on full-length movie The Modern Jungle (La Selva Negra), which received multiple nominations including the honorable mention from Slamdance Film Festival.
