Revered French DJ and producer Sébastien Léger is celebrating 20 years of releasing music in 2019 and after all that time is ready for the next big step. He is launching his new label, Lost Miracle Recordings, which has been in the works for about a year.
With the label, he is looking for music that has an “instant classic feel” and often doesn’t fit anywhere else. He wants music that will stand out in a club, ranging from funky, sad and happy songs that don’t expire after a new release cycle. “I’m looking for melodies and elements that truly stands out from the rest: the genre doesn’t matter to me as long as it remains house music,” he says in a press release. It will be a home to release music from himself, as well as other artists.
The visual aesthetic is influenced by love of Asian art, culture, fashion, food and architecture. Don’t get him confused with a future bass producer though. In the future, the label will also have a clothing line and parties around the world.
The first release on the label comes from Leger with a three track EP – two originals from the Frenchman and a remix by Tim Green. The first song “Skadi” is the type of joyous and memorable melody he is looking for that blends progressive house and deep house. The b-side “Forbidden Garden” is built around a shaking bassline and strong Middle Eastern influences with flute and drums. Tim Green then remixes "Forbidden Fruit" for a more subdued and stripped down version.
The EP will be released on June 7. Pre-order on Beatport here.
