With Everything Matters, his debut album, Clément Bazin realizes one of his sweet dreams: to rethink electronic music and integrate the instrument from which he can’t be dissociate anymore, the steeldrum. Through this achievement, he sets bridges between his favorite music genders: calypso, soca, hip-hop or UK post-dubstep from the 2000’s; a synthesis of Machel Montano, J. Dilla, D’Angelo and James Blake.

In 2016 he multiplies prestigious live performances with opening acts of Fakear’s and Petit Biscuit’s Zenith Tours, a small English tour on his own, and acclaimed performances at Solidays Festival, Les Vieilles Charrues (FR), the Sziget Festival (HUNG), the MEG Montreal Festival (CAN) and the Paleo Festival (CH) and a sold out Gaîté Lyrique (Paris 1k capacity). Through his live performances, Clément Bazin’s music reaches a whole new dimension by being rich without being arrogant, groovy without rupturing ones eardrum, and especially relying on a balance between razor sharp beats and more organic sounds.

The same year, he won the FAIR and Adami Talents awards and asserts his love for hip hop with « Us », a new EP in which the single “Distant” featuring the American singer Lia already reached 8 millions plays. “With You” et “Disant” are the first two stones paving the way of Everything Matters, rich and plural album in its way of seeing a dancefloor mixing euphoria and nostalgia where the smiles are tainted of melancholia.

Everything Matters, because of its diversity, confirms the talents of Clément Bazin as a beatmaker and multi-instrumentalist.

Between syncopated rhythmic, voice distortions and heady beats, Clément Bazin draws an electronic music made of tropical textures and subtle soul music excursions, built around a steeldrum that fully bloom in this clever mix between organic and analogic and that, as a symbol, take the stage front and the first part of the act just before the end.
