As the Avener, French deep house producer Tristan Casara melds tasteful guitar licks and jazzy horns with folk and blues vocal samples, all underpinned by a warm, pulsating club beat. Casara first began releasing disco-tinged filter house under the name Tyares in 2005, then spent years behind the scenes co-writing several club hits, including Mathieu Bouthier and Sophie Ellis Bextor's "Beautiful" in 2012. He debuted his project the Avener in 2013 with "Fade Out Lines," a house track built from a sample of Phoebe Killdeer & the Short Straws' "The Fade Out Line." The song slowly obtained a word-of-mouth buzz before Capitol released it in September of 2014. It exploded from there, hitting the charts across Europe and Australia and reaching number one in Austria, Germany, Hungary, and Spain. Full-length debut The Wanderings of the Avener arrived in early 2015, filled with tracks sampling and covering a diverse array of artists, including John Lee Hooker, Mazzy Star, Rodriguez, Ane Brun. The album charted in several countries as well, hitting number two on the French album charts. ~ Paul Simpson
