Track list: A1 Perspectives of the Youth, A2 Soukoun, A3 Treize Zero Zero Trois B1 Treize Zero Zero Trois (Nachtbraker Remix) B2 Crown Collection Release Info: We’re super excited to present the latest artist to join the Dirt Crew stable, French producer Sekou Babe. He ticked all the right boxes for us with this beautiful debut EP “Foresight Prevents Blindness” which explores his fresh and vibey outlook on house with sideways glances to smokey jazz, breaks and garage. The a-side lines up three varied tunes. “Perspectives of the Youth” and “Soukoun” step in quickly with lively breakbeat rhythms. The first boasting warm soul vocals and steady bass groove, the second a melancholic yet uplifting back and forth between vintage piano and warbling rhodes. “Treize Zero Zero Trois” is a deep and dreamy house jam. Cinematic elements infused with punchy percussion and 80s sonic touches add up to good times all round. On the B, our good friend Nachtbraker does what he does best, flipping “Treize Zero Zero Trois” bringing the deep, dubby Amsterdam vibrations. His version is lush, textural and slightly fruity, with surging synths, tropical percussion and a stomping kick. Sekou Babe rounds things off with the extravagant “Crown Collection", showing us yet another colour in his musical spectrum. It’s trip hop meets Detroit where warped strings introduce shuffling drums before the track begins to build layering subtle arpeggios, smooth pads, crash hits and a buoyant melody. Sekou Babe would like to add that all tracks were written and produced by b.b. at 7e Republique Studio and says thanks to Peter, Ghizlčne, Mohammed and Florian, you beautiful souls.
