Jamie xx and SebastiAn score new Romain Gavras film, ‘The World Is Yours’

This post was originally published on this site

Jamie xx is filled with surprises, such as when he produced the title track from Drake‘s album Take Care, or when he co-produced the song “When It’s All Over” with Alicia Keys off her LP, Girl on Fire, or that time he composed the entire score for a ballet inspired by Jonathan Safran Foer’s book, Tree of Codes. Now, it seems Jamie Smith’s has yet another surprise up his sleeve.

He’s just soundtracked Romain Gavras’s next film, The World Is Yours, alongside the French musician SebastiAn, who’s produced for the likes of Frank Ocean, Kavinsky, and more.

The French film director, who’s perhaps best known for his controversial cinematography with M.I.A has also worked with artists like Justice, Simian Mobile DiscoKanye West, Jay-Z, and even Smith in the past. Gavras has just released the teaser trailer for the upcoming film and it’s absolutely stunning.

The World Is Yours will premiere at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, slated for May 8–19. It’ll appear in French cinemas on August 22, and will seek a US distributor after the festival.

Charlotte Gainsbourg – A-Ring O’Roses (SebastiAn On The Beat Remix)

SebastiAn Charlotte Gainsbourg Remix

French electro house stalwart Sebastian Akchoté-Bozovic — better known simply as SebastiAn — never seems to take his foot off the gas. The Ed Banger icon’s discography has gravitated towards cult acclaim over the last decade and, while his prominence isn’t quite as forthright as French colleagues Justice or Busy P, his releases are always a welcome dive into authentic French house.

Now, Bozovic is here to quench our French thirst once again with his latest release of Charlotte Gainsbourg‘s seminal track “A-Ring O’Roses.” Toned down, stripped to minimalism, and subsequently re-adorned with the dressings of French synths that veer towards heady futurism, the remix is a melodic build culminating in a melancholic tug.

Note the capital A.

Don’t sleep on Busy P. While fellow French superstars such as Tchami and DJ Snake may currently be dominating main stages and chart positions, but as far as dance music’s original French connection is concerned, Pedro Winter still pulls the strings. Moving into 2018, Busy P and his cohorts at Ed Banger Records have plenty of good news for fans, mainly with big projects from SebastiAn and Justice on the way.

In an interview with Earmilk, Busy confirms the announcement of a new full-length SebastiAn record sometime in 2018, complementing the veteran as “one of the most talented producers around.” The label head also mentions a new Justice video in the works as well as what sounds like the early stages of a third live album from the French house pioneers sometime next year. Always coming through with the good word, keep an eye on Busy P, he’s got big things up his sleeve for 2018.
