Rising Dutch producer and DJ Cliff de Zoete has released a couple of attention-grabbing releases through French electronic music label Sinners including the astral “Spacesuit Required” and the tongue-in-cheek “Are You Afraid of the Boogieman?”Iridescence” EP, which featured the hypnotic and minimalist “Are You Afraid of the Boogieman?

“Orbit,”de Zoete’s expansive third release through the renowned French electronic music label continues a run of Kraftwerk-like material — in particular, Computerworld and Tour De France with the track being centered around a slowly developing groove centered around shimmering synth arpeggios, thumping beats and a sinuous bass line. Simply put, the track is late night, deep house that will make you dance and sweat into the wee hours.

Live Footage: French Producer Aalston Performs “Crystal” for Session Sauvage

Aalston is a rising French electronic music producer, who has developed and honed a unique, melodic and deeply personal take on techno music with releases through Sinners, Teho’s Labo T, Soul Button‘s Steyoyoke — and he’s played with the likes of Extrawelt, Teho and Kiasmos. 

Last year, as a result of pandemic-related lockdowns, quarantines and restrictions, the rising French electronic music producer focused on writing and recording new material, which included the “Serene”/”Reverse” 7 inch and “Failure.” Building upon the buzz of those singles, Aalson’s latest single “Crystal” reveals an artist, who has been pushing his sound and approach in new directions while retaining the essential elements that have won him attention international. Centered around layers of shimmering synth arpeggios, skittering beats, the remarkably cinematic “Crystal” focuses on slowly adding texture and gradation with a deliberate and painterly quality while being completely improvised. The end result is a song that’s club friendly yet mesmerizing.

“I challenged myself with the idea of writing through jamming, improvising on my machines, without using the computer,” the rising French producer explains. “It’s a very  instinctive method that allowed me to go beyond the Ableton grid and codes. It was also the occasion for me to try out a new rhythmical structure based on the Drum & Bass genre. I actually decided to record the first take and forbade myself to ever re-record it in order to protect the spontaneity of that take. I felt so many emotions on the first record, it was quite a special moment of shivers and even tears, the experience was really powerful.”

Wojmann is a mysterious and emerging French electronic music producer and electronic music artist with a rather unique and interesting back story: Born somewhere in Southern France during the late 20th century, the emerging French artist suffered from a severe case case of amnesia, a case that has essentially erased his past. Found in front of a small Provence town’s public pool last April, the only memories that Wojmann seems to have is a haunting rhythm in his head that he tries to transcribe to music.

His debut EP will be released through acclaimed French label Sinners. The EP’s first single “Vars” is an expansive deep house track centered around skittering, tweeter and woofer rattling beats and glistening synth arpeggios within an expansive, mind-bending song structure, complete with an atmospheric break. Sonically to my ears, the song reminds me a bit of Octo Octa‘s Between Two Selves as it possesses a similar sensual quality.

As a result of pandemic-related lockdowns and restrictions, the rising French producer has been focusing on writing a new material — including the “Serene”/”Reverse” 7 inch, which was released earlier this year. “Serene,” the 7 inch’s first single is a glistening and hypnotic bit of techno, centered around shimmering and arpeggiated synths, skittering beats, oscillating low frequencies and a motorik-like groove. And while featuring brooding atmospherics, the track is a club banger.
