Cid Inc hit the ground running (the name is a cheeky reference to his early years spent raving to acid house.) Starting with the ‘Sister’ EP on Dyami in 2008, Henri has put together an impressive body of work including releases on Inkfish and Tribal Vision, and remixes for labels like Mango Alley and microCastle. His remix of Facundo Mohrr’s ‘Wooster St’, in particular, came in for much critical acclaim for its marriage of progressive and tech house. The word prolific hardly does it justice with nearly 30 Cid Inc original productions and remixes released in 2009.
Last October saw Henri launch his own Replug imprint with the main goal of releasing his own tracks and collaborations with good friends on the dance scene. The first two EPs from Henri himself, ‘Defrost’ and ‘Cloudberries’, have already done well and put the label on the map. There are also two monthly Cid Inc radio shows, ‘Deplug’ on Proton Radio and ‘Zeitgeist’ on Danceradio Global in Greece. It’s hardly surprising, therefore, that Beatport selected Henri as one of their Progressive House Artists of 2009 alongside other great names like Charlie May, Guy J and Pole Folder. In 2008 he was also voted the fifth Most Popular Nordic DJ.
