Sébastien Léger launches his Temple Of Lions label and announces 20 Years retrospective album project.
Temple Of Lions
Sébastien Léger is one of the most unique and captivating DJ/Producers the techno world has seen over the past two decades and with a more melodic, slower soundscape now being accepted within the scene, December 2014 is a perfect moment for him to launch his new Temple Of Lions label to feature the melody rich productions he has been creating and championing for many years
Taking it’s inspiration from an enlightening trip to Bali, the label will feature parts of Sébastien’s musical palette that have been waiting in the wings for the scene to move forward and develop in a more relaxed, open-minded way. Temple Of Lions is about tracks you would play on the beach, or in intimate, underground clubs. By removing formulaic huge build-ups and drops from the equation, Sébastien’s Temple Of Lions productions have the space for more musicality within their structure, further blurring the lines and divides between techno and house music in a diverse and highly creative way.
As his DJ sets have become longer (3-4hrs being the norm these days), there has also come more room for more stylistic experimentation and groovier, deeper starting points. So the Temple Of Lions releases will be a signature part of Sébastien Léger’s future musical direction, as he moves forward into his third exciting decade in the scene
