ABOUT

Harold Boué aka Abstraxion and Lion’s Drums, is a French producer based in Marseille. He started to produce music as Abstraxion in 2005, and has so far released a fair amount of EP’s as well as two studio albums (“Break of Lights” on Nicolas Jaar’s label Other People – 2013 & “She Thought She Would Last Forever” on Biologic Records – 2016).  His latest EP “Black Vulture” was released May 2019 on Jennifer Cardini’s label Dischi Autunno, including remixes by Black Merlin and Interstellar Funk.
In 2018 Harold felt the desire to explore different musical territories and launched Lion’s Drums, which he’s developing in parallel with his Abstraxion project.  Lion’s Drums music is inspired from and pays tribute to the character of his city Marseille:
