Van She X SebastiAn

van she

I think everyone in the world has been waiting for this one! Teasers of SebastiAn’s reMix of Van She new single ‘Idea Of Happiness’ has been making some big waves. The single isn’t out until later this month (unless you want to buy iTunes quality…in which case you can pick it up now, but being a discerning music fan I will presume you don’t buy from iTunes and would rather wait a few days for quality), so it surprising, but very welcome that Modular Recordings have decided to give away the track, I guess they knew people couldn’t wait.

And the track lives up to it’s preceding reputation. SebastiAn amps up the disjointed French Disco and applies it to the tune liberally. Gone are the big rave synths, to be replaced with a particular cinematic slice funky bass, wicked Disco licks and big strings. It’s actually quite a ‘classic banger’, if such a think can exist yet. It’s got all the right elements, in the right places, of the golden age of Ed Banger tunes, which seeing as it a reMix of Van She’s comeback tunes, is more than fitting and will definitely put a smile on your face. If you have missed French Disco experimentalists reMixing Australian, electronically leaning, IndiePop artists (it happened all the time in 2008!) then you will love this track. We do! (Classic Van She picture seemed appropriate).

Van She – Idea Of Happiness (SebastiAn reMix)

The single is released properly 13th May and features additional reMixes from Jonti, Hervé, and What So Not. Van She’s new album will be out this 6th July on Modular Recordings.

DMX Krew reMixes SebastiAn

It’s no secret that I love DMX Krew, so I was eager to investigate EDMX’s reMix of Ed Banger Electro king SebastiAn’s new single ‘C.T.F.O.’

ED brings his B-boy Electro A-game to the mix, which is just what we like him to do. 808’s & DMXs, Analog basslines & scratching, M.I.A. vocoded beyond all recognition and that 808 cowbell. The DMX Krew cosmic Electro-Funk is in full effect right here and ED has managed to work just the right mix of Sci-Fi otherworldliness and that cold B-boy Electro edge with a catchy groove that’ll stick in your head.

The ‘C.T.F.O.’ single is out now.

MMMatthias reMixes SebastiAn

This is what happens when producers with unique ideas about capitalisation (of letters, not globaly) meet.

MMMatthias, one of our favourite German producers had reMixed SebastiAn latest single, and the precursor to his now album, ‘Embody’. MMMatthias ups the tempo and Discos things up a little. More choppy and noisy than we’re used to from MMMatthias, the cut-ups and 8-bit sounds give the tune a real edge and counterpoints the smooth retro synths. The whole thing is keps rocking with some dark growling bass synths. Great stuff!

SebastiAn’s ‘Embody’ reMixed by Kavinsky

SebastiAn’s awesome new single ‘Embody’ gets a dark and heavy reMix treatment from Electro genius Kavinsky.

Relentless marching drums and massive, growling, synths take over the track, Like much of Kavinsky’s recent work he seems to be moving further and further from hectic dancefloor tracks and more into an evocative and atmospheric realm of Electro. It’s like the 80’s through a distortion pedal!

SebastiAn – Embody (Kavinsky reMix)

The ‘Embody EP’ is out April 4 and also features a reMix from DJ Premier, SebastiAn’s début album, Total, is out in May on Ed Banger.

SebastiAn’s new ‘Embody’ video

This’ll keep me going the weekend! The first new track to début from SebastiAn’s forthcoming album, ‘Embody’ has now had it’s video premiered too! The track is Electro Disco as only the Ed Banger crew can do it, French Touch vocal samples and that Ed Banger slap bass. It all bodes well for the album!

The video is directed, of course, by So Me

SebastiAn’s début album, Total, is out in May on Ed Banger.

SebastiAn for 2010

SebastiAn

Hey, it’s been quite a week it’s been for new tracks from established acts who’ve been away far too long! A new track from French Electro master SebastiAn has surfaced, originally featured on an  Ed Banger Records promo sampler featuring some of the labels forthcoming releases.

I was debating posting the tune ‘cos a) its all over the music blogosphere anyway and b) it’s a funny one. Clocking in at just over 13 minutes, it’s only around the 11m18s mark that the good old SebastiAn we know and love drops and shit goes crazy. the preceding 11 minutes are a slow chaotic build. Strings, distorted synths and white noise meld together for so long it that waiting for it to kick in becomes almost unbearable.

But when it does…SebastiAn is back!

Anyway, the track, even the intro, has grown on me and I’m now pretty exited about the album release later this year. Ed Banger have got some good shit coming out in the coming months!
