Joachim Pastor signs with Armada Music17 June 2020 - Press release
Joachim Pastor has always been one to carve his own road rather than walk the beaten path, and that includes venturing in a new direction when the moment is right. Today, the French DJ and producer signed an exclusive recording agreement with Amsterdam-, New York- and London-based record label Armada Music, with whom he will release his upcoming debut album.
With upcoming release ‘Sol Invictus’, Joachim Pastor is taking his timeless sound to Armada Music for the first time. The record is decked out with melancholic chords and shuffling beats that play catch with the frolicking arpeggios in between, and has an everlasting feel to it you can’t find elsewhere. ‘Sol Invictus’ is set for release on June 26.
Joachim Pastor: “I’m so happy to start this new adventure with Armada. I’ve been thinking about releasing my first album for years, and we’re preparing for that in the best possible way. A lot of surprises are coming. Can’t wait!”
Maykel Piron, CEO Armada Music: “Joachim is one of the rare breed of artists who’ve truly managed to cultivate a timeless signature sound. We’re super excited to have him on board and can’t wait to find out where this joint journey will take us.”
Inspired by the works of seminal artists such as Daft Punk, Sonata Arctica and Jean-Michel Jarre, Joachim Pastor’s melodious brand of electronica offers a sense of sophistication not easily found in today’s music world. Designed to make listeners feel with every fiber of their being, his music is an expression of emotion with a danceable twist, endorsed by hundreds of thousands of fans on Spotify alone as well as those who witnessed his performances at the likes of Dour, Tomorrowland, Paleo, Olympia, Solidays, DGTL, Pleinvrees and more.
