ED BANGER / BECAUSE

Pioneering French artist SebastiAn’s first album in eight years, following 2011 debut, ‘Total’.

Bringing different styles together as one on the new record – from European techno and electro to classic pop and R&B, hip-hop and American gospel – SebastiAn has called upon an impressive list of artists to feature on the 14-track album. They include acclaimed singer and actress Charlotte Gainsbourg (SebastiAn primarily produced her 2017 album ‘Rest’), cult pop duo Sparks, rising London star Bakar, American singer/songwriter Syd from The Internet and experimental Iranian/Dutch artist Sevdaliza.

Emerging from the creative cocoon that has enveloped them since wrapping up promotional efforts for their 2007 grammy nominated debut ‘Cross’, Xavier De Rosnay and Gaspard Augé, the influential Parisian duo known as Justice, have announced the impending release of their second album 'Audio, Video, Disco'. Straying even further from their dance music roots the new effort is at once looser and heavier than previous releases, using the combined musical vocabulary of rock and electronic to conjure a laidback, agricultural effort existing on the outer fringes of pop.

'Audio, Video, Disco' was created in the duo’s home studio, with all instrumentation performed by the group themselves. Seeking to create an album that would evoke the feel of progressive rock, the duo laboured meticulously to learn instruments they had not previously conquered to craft an epic masterpiece that exchanges the 'night in the city' setting of their debut with an 'afternoon in the country' atmosphere. Another notable development is the occasional presence of guest vocalists, including a spot by Morgan Phalen of NY rockers Diamond Nights on 'On’n’On' and 'New Lands', Vincenzi Vendetta of Australian band Midnight Juggernauts on 'Ohio', and UK pop singer Ali Love on the album’s first single 'Civilization'.

"Sex, Dreams and Denim Jeans" was put together over three years, recorded in various apartments around Paris whenever Uffie was able to take short-lived breaks from touring. The album has all the hallmarks of the hedonistic club kid who introduced herself with the fearless "Pop The Glock" back in 2006, while the influence of Feadz and the production hand of beat-and-synths wizard Mr Oizo are strongly felt over many of the tracks. But there is also a melodic, pop sensibility being explored for the first time. The result can be heard in the likes of title track, which samples Lou Reed but sees Uffie toying with John Hughes-esque high school heartbreak, and "Illusion Of Love", which features the dulcet tones of Matte Safer (The Rapture). Another important influence over "Sex, Dreams & Denim Jeans" happened when Uffie was introduced to Mirwais while recording the album. Having worked on Madonna albums such as "Music" and "Confessions On A DanceFloor", Mirwais was perfectly poised to helped nurture Uffie's inner pop star. Tracks like "ADD SUV" (featuring Pharrell) poke fun at the rap fraternity's obsession with possessions, but at the core of this idiosyncratic album, in which Uffie flits from rude girl to sweetheart, is fun.
