Sébastien is currently back to the studio, recording his new album, produced by Ed Banger Records' Mr Flash. Think Boys Noize meets Feadz meets Justice. SebastiAn might sound as fresh 11 years from now as Daft Punk does today. . Previous bedfellows include Quentin Dupieux Mr Oizo , Phillipe Zdar, SebastiAn, Tony Allen and Daft Punk's Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo. The lead single, Divine, was selected to represent France at the 2008 Eurovision Song Contest, a task which Sébastien fulfilled with typical aplomb.
Experimental, unusual, raw but not inaccessible. Changing his perspective on the world, Sebastien sets a new theme as the pivot around which his musical universe swirls. The writing process for each studio album begins in the same way. Some of my favorite tracks: - Walkman SebastiAn's Werol Alkman Edit - Revl9n - Walking Machines SebastiAn Remix - Uffie - Pop The Glock SebastiAn Remix This guy is out of his mind. Has the potential to be mainstream some day.
When not composing in his apartment, the Parisian has been shacking up with artists of international repute. A new love became the muse for his third record, Sexuality, a realization of perfect sex. A ground-breaking collaboration was also announced with American Apparel as Sexuality became the first record to be distributed in their stores around the globe, the sultry overtones of the album fitting perfectly with the ever-provocative stylings of the clothier. The emotive piano-led La Ritournelle emerged at this time, becoming the moment where Sébastien truly announced himself to the world. Since then, his profile has risen dramatically, resulting in a character far more assured and attuned to his audience. The sound is gritty and raw, the beats are completely deconstructed yet very danceable, the remixes he makes are instant floorfillers: this is the music of the future! Always striving to present his oeuvre in a fresh and exciting manner, every show reflects the refreshingly individual nature of the man. Who knows where he will end up next? The music he produces is miles ahead of anything that has been done in electro before.
Reflections on childhood and family underscored his debut L'Incroyable Vérité , the follow up played out to a skewed backdrop where politics reigns supreme Politics. . . . .
