Check out this new new video from French producer Around7′s titled ‘The 7th Sin’. The 7th Sin is the lead single from Parisian producer Around7′s (Sébastien Guertau) debut album Back To Basics which will be the first release on Phil Weeks’ new Robsoul Jazz imprint (as part of his well-established house label Robsoul Recordings) label when it drops on 29th March.
Having honed his craft for the past 15 years, in a variety of different genres, the multi-instrumentalist takes things Back To Basics with a seven track instrumental project that demonstrates an acoustic sound created by mashing up and improvising with jazz samples, old school hip-hop drum patterns and nu soul production, paying homage to the art of sampling and his Hip Hop influences such as J Dilla and DJ Premier, as well as the jazz of Miles Davis, Bill Evans and the legendary Blue Note Records.
“Most of the time i start with the main sample and i cut it in little pieces to do something different. It makes new melodies or harmonies and i build around it.” says Sébastien of his process.
The video was premiered on Potholes In My Blog and I liked it so I decided to pass it on to you guys. Enjoy!
