Florence-born London-based dance producer Daniele Pianigiani AKA Seya (formerly 5eya), is a new name to the scene. Friends with The Young Punx and Phonat, he is now setting his own path. Seya's 'Float EP' released last year on Sharooz 'La Bombe' label, is a funky modern disco-house hidden gem. Cut up samples, phat heavy drums and synths that pop out left, right and centre. This is a recipe for success. Here's the b-side 'Backlight'.
It's 2012, a new year and a new start. It's been a good few years for the 'French Touch' sound. Every year new producers are emerging and it has now got to a point where a scene is forming.
In '08 we had 'Mr Oizo - Lambs Anger', 'Voodoo Chilli - Titans EP', and of course 'Louis La Roche - The Peach EP'. In '09 we saw the return of Armand Van Helden with new best buddy A-Trak to form the mighty Duck Sauce. Their debut track 'aNYway' hitting the mainstream charts and radio. From then on, 2010 and 2011 exploded with new music from Phonat, Nightriders, His Majesty Andre, Madeon, Fred Falke, J Paul Getto, Vanguard plus many more...
