The man behind some infamously amazing and joyful live sets, a successful first album for Musique Risqué, a great EP for Oslo, and a brilliant debut on Circus Company with Petit Djinns-including the underground hit ‘Sous l’Arbre’, Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts is now back on CC with ‘I Was On My Way To Hell’.
A delicious two-tracker for different moments, covering two distinct vibes perfectly. On the A side ‘I Was On My Way To Hell’ is a jam that bubbles over like a volcano with a marvelous synth pad melody building along with a gospel preacher sample. All the while a heavy groove powers away underneath- he’s got the secret!
On the B side, we are taken to a more quiet but still melodic environment. ‘Can’t Argue With Silence’ opens up with a rolling bass line, a simple refined groove, and then gradually sprinkles tasteful acoustic hits and ethno-styled synth stabs on top. Close your eyes and feel the heat of an ‘arabian night’ inna Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts house sylee!
