Léon Phal – No Pain No Champagne EP

New single
“LIFE IN A WIND” ft. ODDISEE & WOLGANG VALBRUN
OUT NOW

LIGHTNESS AND SOPHISTICATION, LOVE AND PASSION: LÉON PHAL’S NEW EP, NO PAIN NO CHAMPAGNE, PAYS TRIBUTE TO THE SAXOPHONIST’S CHAMPENOIS HERITAGE AND ANNOUNCES HIS COLLABORATION WITH SONY MASTERWORKS.

A spearhead of futuristic jazz born in the vibrant atmosphere of the 2010s, the artist from Champagne here abandons the ultra-modern style of his previous works to infuse his jazz with a vintage palette inherited from Ahmad Jamal or the Headhunters, an almost mythical era whose grooves he freely replays. Throughout, he seeks out the oddities, the catchy gimmicks that grab the ear and steer jazz in new directions: towards a nervy hip-hop with Oddisee, soulful lyricism with Wolfgang Valbrun, or a damaged house on “One Step Further.” It’s a way of breaking free from strict dogma to avoid being confined, confronting a certain tradition with the codes of rap, electro, or modern treatments of vintage grooves.
