Born in Hamburg, August composes and performs multifaceted electronic music with hopeful tones and a human aesthetic.
“The act of creating should be free from rationalization, relying solely on subconsciousness communication,” says the classically trained multi-instrumentalist. From a string of early dance singles and remixes (2010-2014), followed by his debut album, Times (2013), to a handful of EPs on Ninja Tune sub-label, Counter Records (2016), the Tonmeister graduate continues to uncloak inner paths yet to be discovered. It is this conviction that has lured August to Palestrina, a rural town, resting in central Italy. The birthplace of his mother has, as of recent, casted rays of inspiration upon the young musician. “These roots have always evoked the stronger emotions within me.”
Whether he performs solo for the Boiler Room (2014) or a RA Live Session (2015), recruits trusted musicians for his Ensemble (2015-2016), DJ’s or explores collaboration with Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester (2016), moments of immediate expression remain a constant. After a year of self-examination, August re-emerges with an advanced, personal language. Adorning the altars of his new label, 99CHANTS, DCXXXIX A.C. (2018), basks in transcendental glow. Ambient in form, August's second LP is a manifestation of collected interpersonal experiences. “Finding the courage to have a true dialogue with myself has been a challenging process I hope to explore in the most honest way possible.”
