Expectations persist everywhere within music, be it from the people listening in or from the makers themselves, and breaking away from those.
For his debut album we are gifted with an absorbing immersion into a world of glittering, enchanting dance music – an immersion that touches upon many cornerstones, scenes and genres, all wrapped up in a beautiful, concise manner .Le Hutin is a French producer, DJ and former label head. Self taught on numerous instruments, Robin absorbed a number of musical adorations from his surroundings and friends.
He moved to the South Coast of England for a period to study before returning to France to focus solely on music. This focus led to Robin co-founding the much lauded De La Groove imprint in 2016, which has released some wondrous records over the years as the label served up only the finest House orientated vibrations.
The label welcomed a number of acclaimed DJs and producers, including Atjazz, Mood II Swing, Mousse T, DJ Spen, Mark Di Meo, Reelsoul, Grant Nelson, Crackazat, Jimpster, Cody Currie, Coeo, Black Loops, Stacy Kidd, Scott Diaz, Sebb Jr, Folamour, Mijangos, Frank Roger, Art of Tones, Tour-Maubourg, Don Carlos, Sean McCaBe, Fouk, Xxxy, Elie escobar, Loz Goddard and many more to come..
Previously mired in the fundamentals of Funk, Disco and Hip Hop, Le Hutin became more and more drawn into House music from 2016 onwards, being particularly inspired by the likes of Johnick, Masters at Work, Grant Nelson, Richard Purser, Saint-Germain and Atjazz. This new found adoration manifested itself through his previous releases ‘The Sexophonist’ (21) and ‘Dive’ (22), or Spanish Steroids (22) alongside Tour-Maubourg.
‘Expectations ?!’ is Le Hutin’s most ambitious work to date, an accumulation of 3 years of work. Utilising the foundations of House, UK Garage and Soul music as anchor points, over the 18 tracks presented to us Le Hutin takes us on quite a journey. The intrinsicness of the record runs deep, with Le Hutin recording his own playing heavily – rather than sampling – in order to create the melodic motifs and compositional elements that run through the listening experience. Still 3 clear samplers being used to record the music and keep the ideals of Houseexpressionism alive and well.
‘Expectations ?!’ is a great addition to those albums that cover so much ground in all the right ways, but most importantly in their own way. House and Garage might be the prevailing vibes, but there is so much here to saviour, an experience that is worth returning to time and time again in order to soak up the waterfall of emotion, groove and passion. So go on, whack this record on – and keep those expectations close to your chest… «
