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.
