Madhouse Records returned this week with a typically soul-laden house EP from Sebb Junior, entitled ‘Move It’ and featuring three original tracks from the French Native. Paris’ Sebb Junior is a relatively new name to most with only a handful of material under his belt via the likes of San Francisco’s Salted Music headed up my Miguel Migs and Old School Department. Here, Sebb takes a leap in his career by joining Kerri Chandler’s Madhouse imprint, home to the likes of Voyeur, Tony Lionni, Behling & Simpson and Nacho Marco.
Title cut ‘Move It’ opens things up and sees Junior deliver a jazzy house number built around a rhythmic New Jersey swing, fluttering Rhodes lines and dubby vocal murmurs. Following is ‘Don’t
Stop’ which lays its focus on emotive piano progressions, soaring pad lines and classically sampled vocal chops. Closing piece ‘Let You Go’ then rounds things off on a deeper tip, dropping the
tempo and bringing smooth synth flourishes, raw drum lines and infectious R&B style vocal hooks into the limelight.
It’s out now as a Traxsource exclusive, 14 June everywhere else.
