Ed Banger Records star SebastiAn is back with a bang, and this time its with a full-length LP, entitled Total (album artwork above). Featuring collaborations with M.I.A, Gaspard Augé of Justice, and Mayer Hawthorne, this album is not to be missed.
SebastiAn’s new venture is like 2007 all over again… and frankly, I’m okay with that. Not only is SebastiAn not afraid to keep it original, he’s not afraid to get tough. Doggg is just that track. Gated bass drums combined with grinding synths, hardcore screamed vocals, and gritty metal guitars make for one of the heaviest electro tracks that I’ve heard from a French artist. Up next is the headbanging mozart-esque collabo with Gaspard of Justice. Tetra is my favorite cut off the album, not only because of the haunting harpsichord, but also the fat-gated kick and snare. The track is flame, my people, as is the album. Perfectly put together, mastered, and mixed. It’s no wonder it took nearly five years.
