Episode 62 of the Fresh Faces series comes from deep house riser, Georges!
We got a chance to catch up with him in an interview below about his new album dropping on AOC Records. On top of this amazing mix full of deep grooves, be sure to peep the premiere we did for his latest downtempo heater ‘Sauce West Coast‘
Interview With Georges
1.) Can you tell us a little bit about this new release that you just dropped on AOC Records?
So, it is my first solo EP. I’m really glad to finally share a whole project on my own ! With this project I wanted to share some of my different inspirations and moods, so you can find some deep, soulful house influences but also hip hop or club friendly tracks !
2.) Our premiere track ‘Sauce West Coast’ is a phenomenal tune to accompany the EP. Can you talk a bit about this track, and how you molded together a few different styles into arrangement?
Thanks !! I really had fun doing this track ! At first it was just a hip hop song and wasn’t necessary composed for the EP but like I said before I wanted to share different vibes in the project and the idea of transforming this slow BPM hip hop track into a bass based house song came. I thought it was interesting to propose something a bit different, surely it will be hard to play it in clubs but you never know ! 😉
3.) Who would you say you’ve drawn inspiration from in finding your sound?
Haha a lot of people ! At first I really was into progressive rock, I think i know all the Pink Floyd’s discography by heart ! St Germain also of course is a big inspiration as well as Dimitri From Paris or Daft Punk ! I am really into the modern jazz, soul, funk hip hop fusion that is going on lately with amazing artists like Thundercat, Badbadnotgood or Kamaal Williams to name a few !
4.) What have you been doing to keep busy during the quarantine time?
Music for sure ! But I read a lot too and I’m a also big movie fan so it was a good opportunity to discover or rediscover classic films and waste some time watching series etc. Call of Duty as been a good friend too ! 😉
5.) Any other cool releases dropping soon this year that we should know about?
I’m in the process of the second EP, don’t really know when it will be release yet ! And there is some surprises to come with Bellaire & Georges ! 😉
Turn it up & enjoy!
