All puns aside, the last thing we expected was Tchami to drop a new track right as his Prophecy Tour kicked off this week. Set to hit numerous cities in North America, the Prophecy Tour will keep Tchami busy over the next several weeks, but the Parisian producer nears the end of the first week of the tour by dropping an entirely new track. The best part? It takes his music in a familiar yet exciting new direction.
“Adieu” finds Tchami exploring a more uplifting side of his sound, one with almost tropical-sounding percussion, soft synths and a powerful sample. A fuzzy warble punctuates the track, hinting at Tchami’s darker side before he rings it in in favor of a more house-inspired mood. Originally known for his future house songs with glitchy vocal samples and dark synths, “Adieu” contrasts to Tchami’s signature sound without sounding alien, a rare feat for a producer known so well for a darker persona. We’re intrigued to see if he explores more of this lighter, house-inclined sound in the future, but for now we are happy to see Tchami step into the light.

Carrying a genre can often lead to a sharp and sudden case of fatigue, but Parisian heavyweight Tchami just hasn’t gotten this memo yet. Lumbered several years ago with flag-bearing duties in the rise of the so-called “future house” sound, the Parisian’s footsteps have always felt intrinsically focussed on leading a creative and quality driven charge in spite of the genre’s rise to popularity.
On return to Tchami’s own Confession imprint, “Adieu” befittingly says goodbye to some of his more hallmarked musical attributes, channeling a dialed back and semi-progressive take on proceedings. It’s different, but the track keeps enough groove and stamina to have us convinced this one hasn’t been outsourced in the studio department. 2017 is going to be a year where a lot of artists jump ship on the sound they stapled their industry presence with, but for Confession’s latest, Tchami shows that there’s room to shake things up without shamelessly chasing pastures greener.
