Etienne de la Sayette – I’m So Cool In Seoul

paris djs

My most relaxing discovery this week… a 2 piece at that, Im so cool in Seoul & Lord Bougainvillard by Etienne de la Sayette >>>> go be cool>>>

 Things starts with “I’m So Cool In Seoul”, the soundtrack to a very pleasant, relaxing road-movie. Close your eyes. You’re in a taxi, in the streets of Seoul, Korea. It’s the early hours, the day has just barely started. The sun is slowly rising to some deep, soul jazz funkyness. In the background you hear some Zimbabwean mbira…

When suddenly, out of nowhere, “Lord Bougainvillard” arrives on the scene.

The mbira is still playing, but the scenery has morphed into a kind of out of hand chamber afrobeat ‪paying homage to‬ an imaginary explorer.

Or is that Etienne de la Sayette messing with your mind?
Open you eyes. Play it again. Search for the details. It’s all in the details.

Out there.
