The first track is wonderful in a PG Passion sense. Never quite heard a clarinet done like in Sensitive (7). This is triphop done really well; so good in fact I had to check my shoelaces. Crunchy is correct, Jean's versatility and production chops should be billed as a big ticket item.
I feel Jean du Voyage is not as well known as it should be in my circles. This is some next level expression and perfectly refined sound. The Vinyl will be a fav to put on till my needle cuts right through it. Looking forward to more.
Favorite track: Walk (feat. Pierre Harmegnies).
Jean du Voyage is a turntablist and beatmaker, a passionate musician who has been carrying around his discs and vinyls in clubs around the world since 1998. Eclectic sound explorer, he has a keen interest in the different cultures. This helps him to fine tune his sensibilities to the rhythms and the respiration of our planet, and inspires and influences his music. The productions are mastered, precise and reflect his insatiable curiosity.
His first album Mantra (released on 21 October 2016 with Jarring Effects) is composed of haunting sounds of cinematic moods and varied soundscapes. The guests artists on the album participate in the plurality of the album in sublimating through their personalities the emotions generated by the productions. A poetic and dreamlike world that invites evasion and introspection.
Mantra reveals an authentic work, reflecting a true generosity and openness to multiculturalism of this world.
