Sare Havlicek's music is primal, it’s escapism, a soundtrack to your night drive along the Mediterranean coast, a space odyssey and a cosy trip to the beach at the same time.Read More
After co-defining Slovenian techno and house sound back in the nineties that is still evolving through the work of artists such as Umek and Valentino Kanzyani Sare’s sound today is Future Disco. Launching his first ‘Star Woman’ EP into the nu disco orbit back in 2009 Sare continued with his disco installations. His debut album mastery ‘Toscana Nights’ released in 2010 was warmly received by critics, DJs and public alike. The album includes singles ‘White Russian’, ‘Dreams in Light’ and ‘Pleasure Storm’ with Ray Mang amongst others on the remix duties.
Sare also used his production skills to remix artists such as Kraftwerk, 70’s disco hipsters Space, megastars Queen, film director John Carpenter and many others. His earlier slick, analog–synth driven, 80’s grooves remixes for Space, Tesla Boy, Bottin and D-Pulse to name a few have bonded him with dance floor audience and were released in 2011 on an album of remixes ‘Nang presents: New Masters Series vol.4 – Sare Havlicek’. Later remixes of Pete Herbert’s ‘Ivory Waves’, Phonetica vs. Soul Emotion’s ‘Impossible Love’ and his recent tracks ‘Diamondback’ and ‘Let The Sound’ are steadily gaining support from DJs.
In 2012 Sare released his second artist album ‘Escape Machine’, a direct progression from the first album’s single ‘Vibe On You’ (remixes by Ilija Rudman and Stevie Kotey) which was immediately announced as a disco bomb by blogs. The album is blending elements of disco, house and indie pop and was later in the year followed by ‘The Diamondback EP’ – album’s second single which is according to critics arguably one of Havlicek's finest outings to date. The third single from the album will be released in spring 2013.
Sare’s DJ sets are still very much club orientated and range from boogie style nu-disco, to house, proto house and indie dance. His tracks have been featured a few times in Pete Tong’s Essential Mixes on BBC’s Radio 1, various compilations including Hed Kandi’s ‘Future Disco Sounds’ and supported by many artists and DJs like Solomun, The Magician, Aeroplane, Dimitri from Paris, Groove Armada, Shapeshifters, Gramophonedzie, Axwell, Mousse T, Etiene de Crecy, Pete Herbert, Faze Action, Pete Gooding, Bottin, Chris Coco and others.
Unique analog approach to music production and combining old and new techniques has earned Sare some great press and magazine features in DJ MAG, iDJ and Mixmag. Sare’s freshest music involvement has been coproduction and mixing the comeback album of 80's synthpop group Visage titled 'Hearts And Knives' to be released in spring 2013.
