Anjunabeats welcomes legendary French house producer Sébastien Léger to the label.
A regular on Lee Burridge’s seminal All Day I Dream imprint, Sébastien is a mighty force within the global electronic music circuit. He’s been releasing music for over 20 years, with recent DJ support from Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed, Sasha, Prospa, and Eelke Kleijn, and festival appearances at All Day I Dream Denver, Family Picnik, Loveland lined up, plus a residency at Cova Santa in Ibiza. In November 2020, Sébastien was invited by legendary French label and event producers, Cercle, to perform live at the Great Pyramids in Giza, Egypt.
After hearing ‘Gratitude’ on YouTube, Sébastien approached Above & Beyond’s Tony McGuinness and an official remix materialised, becoming a highlight of Tony’s deep house set at Anjunadeep Explorations in June 2022.
'Gratitude’ popped up on my YouTube timeline one day, when I was in the hotel waiting for a show, I listened to it and I was touched by the melody and the main story from the lyrics. I was in a mood where, despite being lonely on tour for half of my life, I felt very grateful for what I do. I immediately thought it would be amazing if I could do my own version, and try to keep the emotions I got from the original. - Sébastien Léger
Having already charted at #1 on Beatport's Organic House chart, 'Gratitude' (Sébastien Léger Remix) is out now wherever good music can be found, streamed and downloaded.
