8-string grooves used to enhance the Jazz, not the other way round for once. Unique, creative and raising the hopes for future releases even higher than the already brilliant "Proxima" EP.
Favorite track: Substance.
Astonishing second E.P. from Clement Belio. The production is truely amazing, Tunes are inspiring and the surrounding vibe ala" E.ST. meets Manu Katché" fits properly with the proggy side. Belio 's talent was revealed with Proxima EP earlier, Heia brings things to the next level.
Favorite track: Essence.
"Heïa". My second EP, blend of a few musical genres and colors I love…
I don't know how to define it… It's like, metal, jazz, mathrock… and… I don't know…
Contemporary music ?
Well… Whatever the genre…
I like complex structures, chords and shapes, I love rich harmonies and melodies, I like to use dissonance, in a smooth or brutal way, I love using weird unusual instruments, I enjoy the sweetness/softness at least as much as brutality and violence, in therm of composition and production.
Like my last EP, e.s.t (Esbjörn Svensson Trio), Daniel Mille, Manu Katché and 1980 (the band) were my main "Jazz influences". The rest only came from this.
There are no truly original ideas ever, only original combinations of preceding concepts.
Let's just say that, I just try to write and record things that I'll be the first to love.
I'm my first listener and first judge, you, guys, are the support keeping it flowing.
Thank you for that, hope you'll like this one too :)
