In the field of electronic music, Gregor Tresher is by no means a debutant. For more than eight years the thirty-year old DJ and producer from Frankfurt gathered merits modernizing the algorithms of electronic music. It has been his "Still EP" in 2005 that upgraded him into the Champions League of European Techno producers. After many highlight releases like "Neon", "Full Range Madness", "The Wombat" or "The Now People" on labels like Cocoon, Intacto, Great Stuff, Datapunk or Rebel One, it was his eagerly-awaited debut album "A Thousand Nights" that defined the state of the art in electronic dancemusic 2008, with its titletrack beeing the best selling Techno song on Beatport in 2007. Also, the readers of German magazine Raveline awarded Gregor as "Producer of the year 2007" for the second time in a row.

Gregor's musical roots have always been Electro. With his project Sniper Mode, he tried to achieve an aesthetic development of the motorbeat from the beginning, releasing two critically-acclaimed artist albums on Frankfurt's electronica label Elektrolux. But it had mainly been his releases under his real name for Anthony Rother's Datapunk Recordings, his remix for Sven Väth's "Komm" and his contribution to Cocoon's Compilation F ("Full Range Madness") that introduced Gregor to a bigger audience.

Gregor's current musical direction is underlined by DJ-Gigs in the prime clubs worldwide: From London to Barcelona, from Sao Paulo to Toronto, from Kiev to Istanbul, from Paris to Budapest. "To play anything from deep Tech-House to Techno in one set and present it in an exciting voyage is what modern DJ-ing means to me." (Gregor Tresher, 2004) However Techno has never been a fixed category for his production and DJ-ing, but more of an open reference-system between past, present and future of electronic music. "With musical roots ranging from New Wave classics by New Order or Anne Clarke over the German Techno-Explosion in the early nineties to my personal discovery of classic Detroit Techno not so long ago, I see my own musical direction in a constant development."

At the end of 2006 Gregor got back into the studio to work on his first full-length album "A Thousand Nights", and then played an extensive 6-months world tour in summer '07, with playing live for the first time at some very special events including his final tour gig for Cocoon's New Years Eve 2008 in Rotterdam. Germany's fast-moving Techno Scene awarded him for another very successful year once again after 2006, with the title "Best Producer 2007".

In early 2008 (besides producing Monika Kruse's artist album "Changes Of Perception") Gregor's new releases "Break New Soil" on the Leipzig based label Moon Harbour Records and his Remix for Dubfire's Label Sci+Tec already showcase new exciting changes in Gregor's development of his very own sound, that became a quality trademark in the world of electronic music.
