The jury has decided, and we've steadily seen the decline of all-bangers all-the-time in the dance music scene. Personally, I don't believe this means a retreat from quality electro progressive tracks or large-scale festivals, but the current climate of releases and events certainly demonstrates fans' desire for a wider range of sounds. Many have diverged into house, techno, and disco, a combination that pervades French DJ and producer Sébastien Léger's sound. His methodic work leverages funky touches that layer over inventive house progressions, making him Mistakes Music label head a leader in his industry.
Like most artists in the scene (and most anyone semi-related to it), Léger shares a special reverence for the robot personalities of Daft Punk. Having been pioneers in the dance music resurgence, Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo and Thomas Bangalter can also be credited for a step up in show production value vis-a-vis their legendary pyramid and an unflinching dedication to innovation, demonstrated recently with Random Access Memories. With all this in mind, take a look at two exclusive videos from Sébastien Léger, where he talks about the changing electronic soundscape and Daft Punk's eternal imprint.
