A French music maker who has sculpted his sound whilst travelling the globe. Sibéri‘s sound is captivating, he is making creative and hellishly unique little grooves. I stumbled upon him a few weeks ago and have since become fairly obsessed with two of his tracks already. His 2018 single Pazapa and his latest release Lotus Rouge. Both are totally my thing! Pazapa is slow and woozy – this is the definition of what the ‘train-gazing’ genre sounds like (music to stare out the train window as the street lights flicker by). I’ve been a huge fan of the slow and moody side of electronic music for years. Pazapa is the latest gem I’ve discovered.
His latest offering Lotus Rouge is slightly more up-tempo and has more of a universal draw to it. It actually sounds like something &ME and the Keinemusik stable would release – it’s got that kind of tech house, acidic flavor to it. Sibéri’s vocals work well alongside the probing house beat-work. The track is far more dance-suited than some of his previous releases. It still however, contains the same emotive minimal components to make it another perfect ‘train-gazer’. I used to be a huge fan of Maceo Plex a few years ago, he had a tune called Solar Detroit that became an obsession. The latter stages of Lotus Rouge gave me those same Maceo feels. ‘Tis a stellar track from a really cool French artist.
I’ve featured plenty of great French artists on The Sound Sniffer recently. Sibéri follows the likes of Inigo Montoya / Wugo / Massane / Clément Froissart / Mottron onto the site. These are just the few I can name off the top of my head! That reminds me, how f*cking good is Clément Froissart’s single ‘Paupleraie‘.
