Hailing from rural France, Sebastien Devaud, aka Agoria, began his rise to notoriety with a succession of self-run parties in his hometown before producing and releasing his own records back in 1999. This was the year that spawned a string of releases including a series of 12" on Pias Recordings followed by the acclaimed album Blossom a year later. His work has developed beyond the studio, helping to establish Nuits Sonores, an ambitions electronic and indie event in Lyon and starting InFine, his co-conducted imprint that focuses on nurturing young, new talent from around the world.
