With Everything Matters, his debut album, Clément Bazin realizes one of his sweetest dreams: to rethink electronic music and integrate the instrument from which he can no longer be dissociated the steel drum. Through this achievement, he builds bridges between his favourite music genders: calypso, soca, hip-hop and UK post-dubstep from the 2000’s; a synthesis of Machel Montano, J. Dilla, D’Angelo and James Blake.
Bazin was ten years old when he discovered the steel drum, instrument coming from Trinidad and Tobago, during a neighborhood party. He instantly fell in love with the instrument and its very particular sound. After releasing his first two EPs “Inner Voices” and “Night Things”, stating his talents as a producer, he shaped his idea to include the steel drum into his compositions, giving modernity and a new perspective to his music.
