French producer Sebastien Bouchet aka Sebastopol has a known reputation for delving into the realms of abstract sound designs. He played in synth bands earlier in his career, which to this day still resonates throughout his production style. After reinventing himself as Sebastopol in 2017, he’s gone on to release on labels such as Correspondant, My Favorite Robot Records, Hafendisko and of course Cologne’s Kompakt. Here though we see him joining the roster of Francesca Lombardo’s Echoe, following material from the label founder herself, INTO YOU, Cassy, La Fleur, Laura Jones and more.
Premiere track ‘Catho Integriste’ offers up delicate synth work balanced alongside a deep, rumbling low-end before effervescent atmospherics are displayed in ‘Luciole’ through airy pads and cosmic elements.
