TIME is the alias of French-based producer Michel Saurin who just so happens to have a 20-year background in jazz but has recently been seduced by the electronic darkside.
His latest masterpiece (and we don’t use that word lightly) sees the Frenchman combine the world’s of electronic and organic in a way that’s both heartwarming and truly exciting.
The main attraction is a self-indulgent, yet utterly entrancing sax solo, and whilst that might not fill you with glee — just remember it was Frenchman by the name of Laurent Garnier who created one of house’s music most iconic tracks with a preposterously self-indulgent sax solo — so it can be done.
A sax solo of this magnitude can only work if it has the right wingmen. So Saurin pairs it up with the odd guitar lick, distant disco percussion and a heavy modulated acid hook to give the track a suitably solid electronic backbone, which then allows the sax solo to really take flight and work its seductive magic. And we’re not the only ones to think this, as it’s being released by Kitsune’s off-shoot, Hot Stream. And Kitsune know a thing or two about uncovering compelling French talent.
