Besides his work for RTS.FM Berlin last year, he works to push people’s dreams and ideas to create spaces where talent and taste are more important than egos and profit. A romantic dreamer, Alex loves good people and music.

Fueled by an unrelenting passion for music, rather than chasing bills or panties, Nolan Haener has been deeply immersed in the house music scene since the late 90s. His life path was forever shifted after being exposed to the thriving sonic subculture in his hometown of Dallas, Texas. He was soon DJing around his college area multiple times a week, honing his craft and ear, while mastering the art of turning the party out.

Haener eventually relocated to the glamorous sunshine capital that is Los Angeles, California to take internships at taste-making label Ubiquity, and Green Galactic, a techno-focused PR firm run by Lynn Tejada, wife of John. While learning the business side of things, he DJ’d throughout Southern California expanding his reputation with show-stopping sets.
Fate and the legendary music scene soon brought him to San Francisco, where he dove headfirst into its thriving culture, performing alongside multiple acclaimed artists. Eventually he co-founded the Bay Area’ scorching hot underground party Re:Body, with a simple mission statement: The music came first, the DJs were in control, and sunrise didn’t mean shit. Two of Re:Body’s highlights would go on to be the West Coast debut of Art Department, and the US premiere of Linkwood.

By 2013, Haener was based back in Los Angeles, where he’d bring Re:Body down for one epic night those lucky enough to be in attendance are still talking about. Trips to Barcelona to spin with Odd Parents and Berlin to perform on TwenFM Radio soon followed. He’s held a number of residencies at venues around L.A. and continues to DJ and throw various underground parties, but his main concentration has been on original music production and Blindfold Music, a musical podcast featuring topnotch global DJs set free on the decks. He has plans to expand Blindfold into a full service music label, where the artists are given open freedom of expression. He’s mostly inspired as a DJ, producer and label head by the deeper realms of minimal house, techno, and disco edit frenzies, but the most important source of inspiration for him is his mantra: Tell stories through vinyl.

podcast 001 | autumn tree

Thank you for joining blindfold music in our journey to connect the dots with quality house and techno across the globe. Our first installment of the blindfold music podcast comes to you all the way from the banks of the Mktvari River in Tbilisi, Georgia. Enjoy some nice deep shades from autumn tree, as this duo will start to appear more on your radar when time reveals itself.

Autumn Tree is a side project of the Georgian techno duo Greenbeam & Leon. The idea of the project appeared after the boys started to make a sound that was radically different from the Greenbeam & Leon production and less agressive. Under the alias of Autumn Tree they’re making warm, harmonic and melancholic music. Their sets are also distinctive for their deep, euphoric, melodic sound.
