Charting the music: SebastiAn, 'Total'

Charting the music: SebastiAn, 'Total' biz3.net
Written by Reinier Timbas

French electro house artist SebastiAn brings yet another release to the forefront of the experimental electronic genre. In a true avant-garde fashion, "Total" fuses house, industrial, experimental and '70s pop as well as elements of funk.

SebastiAn began experimenting with music at the age of 15 and made his first release in 2005 at 24. He has since produced albums and guest tracks in quick succession with even up to three releases per year on the Ed Banger label. His style infuses many different genres with roots deep in French electro house.

Much like the rest of the electro world, SebastiAn utilizes drops, distortion and samples, but what sets Sebastian apart is that these pieces interweave so well that they easily become the rhythm and beat of his songs.

Even more enlightening on the album are songs like "Total" and "Doggg" that bring touches of punk and hardcore into the mix. SebastiAn, with his 10th release, has made an album where no two songs resemble each other -- as a whole "Total" is fluid and a source of pure enjoyment.

On the KDHX Charts: #5 Electronic for August 16, 2011.

This album can be heard on: Beep Beep Boop Boop and the Pop Life.
