Artaban is an electro band from Luxembourg founded by Charles and Max Nilles.


Their first album, called “Landscapes” was released in 2008. Some critics favourably described it as a

cross between Röyksopp and Boards of Canada.

After numerous concerts (among others as support for Modeselektor, Apparat, Foals, Wax Tailor, Sebastien Tellier, M83), a multitude of remixes and collaborations for movie soundtracks, Artaban are finally back with their second album, called “Flow”.


With the support of a new third member to the band, Artaban’s second Opus bears an analog touch. Flirting at times with electro-pop, yet keeping a darker energy and sound, this evolution also translates into the addition of vocals on some tracks.


The album "Flow" was released in collaboration with the label Chez Kito Kat Records.
