Seuil has been part of our electronic world since 2 years and said hello with a series of great releases.
He comes from the Reunion Island, a French department where he was living till the age of 18. Then he packed his
stuff and moved to fascinating Paris, where he has been living since 7 years now exploring for 4 years the
electronic sound at the French capital. A wide range of classical music skills like 10 years of playing piano, jazz and blues formation, as well as a few years of percussions gave him the background to work on electronic music composition. When it comes to his music, he always tries to find a personal groove.
His interest in modern house and techno started with the discovery of the Perlon's crew. With influences like
Pantytec, Zip, Melchior, Cabanne, Ricardo Villalobos and Mathew Dear or Daze Maxim.. reckon two different sides
in Seuil's music : dark rolling minimal along modern minimal shaking house, but always with the same groovy spirit, heavy bass lines and obscure sounds collage. What's more he is as well inspired by his Argentinean friends that he collaborates quite often to give more noises for the dance floor. After a couple of remixes on Adjunct, Leftroom, Rrygular, Stock 5, Seuil has been producing tracks to incorporate his own style to perform live. In 2007, he moves one step ahead to launch his own label named Eklo, contributing to the scene in one more way and hosting on wax artists like Lauhaus, Jorge Savoretti, Heartthrob, Cabanne, Miss Fitz, Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss as well as his own
creations. In 2008, he follows the story with Eklo hosting new artists in the family like Laps, dOP, Skat, Posh.. He has being djing for 4-5years now, but the live act that he has been performing for a year now is a must to see.
For a proof of his talent, Richie Hawtin has play listed Seuil's "Dance" track in his Resident advisor 100 anniversary podcast..
EP COMMENTS :
Seuil is the newest addition to the Freak n'Chic family. Coming from the Reunion Islands, Seuil moved to
Paris seven years ago after being 'fascinated' by the French capital.
Via ten years of piano, percussion, Jazz and Blues formation training, Seuil began producing and releasing
electronic music in 2006 - influenced by people including Zip, Melchior, Villalobos, Matthew Dear and more. He has released music on labels including Einmaleins Musik, Igloo-Rec, Minibar, Leftroom, lessizmore and his own Eklo
imprint, which has and will soon see releases from dOP, Skat, Lee Curtiss, Heartthrob and his own creations.
'Still-Nox Asleep' is Seuil's first official EP on Freak n'Chic, after he remixed Anthony Collins earlier this year.
01: 'Trapped House' - The main frame of this release lays down forward-pushing clean, dry beats and weaves in and out one pleading vocal and one preacher vocal.. you can't decide whether to dance or stand-up and listen..
02: 'Raw Blood' - Pure House grooves, heavy on the b-line and designed to make you move.
03: 'Lunamax' - Takes on a slightly more dark cosmic quality. Easy grooves carry you through.. To where?
Look out for more releases from Seuil and catch his very special live set coming soon.

Guy Hornsby 4clubbers.net Trapped House The best of 3 really good tracks. Great use of the samples/vocals.
fantastic debut on the label. Raw blood Again, really modern groovy house, but lots of classic touches. Feels like
it's inspired by something from 93. Quality. Lunamax Really nice, dark, deep and groovy with a nice old school feel.
Davidino (Kama Kama) Trapped House the beat goes on and on and on... straight rhythm and fantastic voices for a
never stopping dance! Raw blood the old house records teach a lot to this track... i love his groove and his
fantastic bass and percussions... welcome back house music! :) Lunamax the darkest track of the ep... it seems to
be in a fantascientific film (a trip in the space or better a Earth UFO invasion...)
