Based in Zurich (Switzerland), Idealist already produces music for more than a decade. But only in the previous five years he took the next steps and signed EPs to labels like Echocord, Pro-Tez and Berg Audio and focused on building up his own imprint Idealistmusic with its sublabel Details Series. Both of which gained him wide international recognition. In September 2016, Idealist released his anticipated debut album „Firewood Street“, a deep manifestation of the sound of his earlier tracks which might invoke vivid memories of dance music’s glorious past in between Robert Hood, Basic Channel and some unpolished Chicago roughness.
The recent success and attention lead him to gigs across Europe, Canada and Georgia, where he played in clubs like Tresor, Batofar, or the Culture Box and shared the decks with DJs like Delano Smith or Fred P.
