Like many of his contemporaries, Contreau began producing hip-hop beats, then gradually broadening his production reach into minimal-electro and IDM. In the early days, Julian went by the name of Daedra. As Daedra he released two EPs, Detour Circuit (2011) and Décor Talk (2012) on Mr Happy Face Records and Granppa Frisbee Records respectively In 2012, in an act of self-rejuvenation, Julian bid adieu to ‘Daedra taking on a new alias, Contreau. Drawing largely from his blend of hip-hop and IDM beginnings, Contreau softened the edges of his sound and induced more textured tonalities.
As Contreau, Julian has been independently releasing singles and remixes across multiple genres. Urban Street Crossing/Halifax is Contreau's latest release dwelling on swanky soundscapes. The EP comprises of two original tracks, Halifax and Urban Street Crossing, produced by Contreau. From these two tracks, he sought three remixes from the likes of Oby Nine (NL) Know V.A (NL) and K15 (UK). Read more on Last.fm.
