Guts - Philantropiques

Heavenly Sweetness


A MPC beat, a voice sample and an inspiration of Ben laid the foundations for this title. An inspiration coming straight from Ghana, of course, since as a producer of the legendary albums of Pat Thomas and Ebo Taylor, Ben is a great connoisseur of this West African country music. This skeleton was built in two stages, first at home in Ibiza and then reinforced with brass power and the hypnotic guitar of Sékou Kouyaté who is Guinean. With its dancefloor signature, I bet that if DJs had to choose a track from this album to play at night, that one would be in the top 3.

Initially Guts idea was a return to his basics of beatmaker,a solo work with samplers and sequencing. But he finally put it back below his stack of ideas for an album radically different from the previous ones. Experimental, sunny, which would explore all these vibrations from the southern hemisphere that Guts has been collecting for years while practicing in his passion for diggin'. The ones with whom he builds his DJ sets, those he patiently collected on the five volumes of his compilations series Beach Diggin'. An Afro-tropical album.
