SÉBASTIEN LÉGER - 20 YEARS COMPILATION
House // soundcloud.com/sebastienleger
20 YEARS IS A LONG TIME – just look at Dubai, we’ve gone from a speck in the desert to a global city. It’s been a productive time for French DJ Sébastien Léger as well, as he’s racked up quality house track after quality house track on big labels like Ovum, Mouseville and his own Mistakes.
And now, entering his third decade, he’s celebrating his history with a 20 track compilation of his best work.
From his wonky techno to French touch to electro- funk bangers, all of Leger’s various styles are on display, as well as some of his biggest hits, notably his acid- fried re- work of Claude Von Stroke’s ‘ Deep Throat’ which does not sound anywhere close to 9 years old. His expansive take on Rolando’s ‘ Jaguar’ still sounds as tropical and fresh as it did back in 2008, while newly released material like ‘ Dark Forest’ is typical Leger techno bizniz, with its wandering melody, tribal rhythms and relentless synths. Here’s to another 20 years.
