AVEM's productions have been a staple of the alternative electronica and downtempo scene in the past years

The swiss musicians journey as a solo-artist starting alongside Dandara and Arutani, completing the trio that today leads their own Basel-based label named LOKD. Not only a record-label, but primarily an event collective, LOKD was and is the driving force in bringing a family of artists and friends together, creating something completely new; to the local, but also the international stage.

Starting off as a DJ, AVEM has been performing live-sets comprised of only his own productions since winter of 2018, premiering at Mira (Berlin)'s birthday in Kater Blau. Drawing inspiration from a wide range of music, AVEM's compositions are constructed with a meticulous variety of soundsources; from field recordings, to classic analog synthesizers, over to traditional instruments and percussion.

Some of the labels that paved the way of his discography are the following: Vienna-based Heimlich Musik, releasing Nuages EP and Halcyon EP; Berlin-based Underyourskin Records and URSL, where Nocturne and Reflections found their homes; finally not forgetting the homebase LOKD, featuring the adventurous Disco Days and repackaged singles of Long Lost. Countless remixes, singles, and non-Spotify releases are best found on SoundCloud and Bandcamp.

You feel something very intimate and personal, carefully crafted in countless of hours by yourself, suddenly being revealed to an unknown crowd.
