Nicolas Bougaïeff

A decades-long love of club music has compelled Bougaïeff to challenge conventional wisdom, delivering genre-busting Berghain sets that expertly blend French-Canadian hip-hop with Tchaikovsky, moody techno and ambient. Launching his debut record as a producer in 2013, the Movements EP with Max Cooper, Bougaïeff has since put out a string of singles on labels including minimal techno imprint Trapez, working with NovaMute on various projects including The Upward Spiral and accompanying remix album, Higher Up the Spiral, and parent-label Mute for his 2022 album Begin Within.

Outside his music adventures, Bougaïeff designed the controllers for Richie Hawtin’s Plastikman live tour, and in 2010 co-founded software company Liine with Hawtin, the company behind the landmark used by astronaut Alexander Gerst on the International Space Station in a live jam with Kraftwerk. From his teaching – he founded the Berlin Academy of Electronic Music – to writing his PhD thesis on minimal techno, Bougaïeff is dedicated to pushing the boundaries of techno. Now, the Berlin-based Canadian Bougaïeff continues his series with another sublime selection of techno cuts.
