Clement Bazin was ten years old when he discovered the steeldrum, instrument coming from Trinidad and Tobago, during a neighborhood party. He instantly fell in love with the instrument and this very particular sound which didn’t leave his mind ever since.
Between syncopated rhythmic, voice distortions and heady beats, Clement Bazin draws an electronic music made of tropical textures and subtle soul music excursions, built around a steeldrum that fully bloom in this clever mix between organic and analogic and that, as a symbol, take the stage front and the first part of the act just before the end.
He releases today “Romeo“ the first single of his upcoming album dute to April 27.
A track evoking a romantic break up, but also and especially, its best remedy. An exotic instrumental carried by a groove that pushes oneself forward… but always with an eye looking back into the rear view mirror, at our beautiful memories slowly getting out of the frame.
It is “Romeo” without Juliet; it is “Romeo” after Juliet.
