I Am Rhythm

Here it is, my new Tech/House mix is ready!

It’s a rather short affair, by me standards, at 1h46 minutes, but it’s banging and straight to the point. Fear not, the ever present wink at my musical roots are sprinkled throughout.

I truly hope y’all enjoy it because after giving it a good listen with detached ears (merci Tyna de m’avoir appris à faire ça!), I can honestly and modestly say I’m really proud of it!

Monsieur Seb turns 80

Here it is, after many months in the making: my mix of 80’s favourites!

Do not expect to hear your ordinary 80’s electro-pop fodder here. I had to make hard decisions in choosing which tracks to include on this mix, but they represent a very essential selection of artists and especially tracks that were key to my musical upbringing in that decade. Even as I write this I realize I forgot some, but since I obviously couldn’t include everyone of them, I guess it forecasts a volume 2!

I truly hope you enjoy this and give it time to grow on you, because at 47 tracks and 3 hours and 15 minutes long, it’s no processed cheese; this is the music equivalent of a room temperature Époisses!
