International DJ/producer Sebastien Drums from the french Cote DÂ´Azur has successfully confirmed his position at the forefront of the new generation of international house music Djs and Producers. His mega hit âMy Feelings For Youâ, was produced in cooperation with Avicii and sampled Cassiusâ mighty original, quickly became a massive success after being released during Miami WMC and secured the Beatport No. 1 spot for a whole month and was playlisted by some of the worlds biggest DJs including; David Guetta, Bob Sinclar, Laidback Luke, Roger Sanchez, Robbie Riviera, whilst being repeatedly played by Pete Tong on BBC Radio 1 and licensed to many heavyweight labels like Superstar (Germany), Vicious (Austria), Work Machine (France) Vendetta (Spain).
By the age of 11 Sebastien had fallen in love with electronic music and was heavily influenced by Daft Punk, Cassius, Bob Sinclar, Thomas Bangalter and Antoine Clamaran by the time he decided to start DJing. From 2006 to 2008, Sebastien became a resident at the Palas, a well known nightclub in the Cote DâAzur, where he played along side Axwell, Steve Angello, Benny Benassi, Little Louie Vega, and many more. Within that time Sebastien worked on many remixes for artists like Antoine Clamaran (Get Down), Alex Gaudino (Que Pasa Contigo), David Vendetta (Break For Love), Sandy Vee (Be Together), Celeda (The Underground) and even DJ Ralph (Keep On). His remixes were played by the likes of Erick Morillo, Laidback Luke, Roger Sanchez (âupfront trackâ in his radio programme âRelease Yourselfâ).
2009 was the year of success for Sebastien with notable releases such as âFunky Beepâ which had huge success during the 2009 Miami Winter Music Conference and received the support of nearly every top international DJ and became a huge Ibiza anthem during the summer months. Also, in March that year Sebastien met Avicii and the two artists decided to collaborate and worked together on many projects such as âBig Colossusâ, âWet Grooveâ, âPastisâ, âEvenâ and of course their mega hit âMy Feelings For Youâ, which was released in March 2010.
In October 2010, Sebastienâs release, âTweet itâ with Tim Berg (aka AVICII) and Norman Doray was signed to Steve Angelloâs legendary Size Records. This track received huge support from the likes of Swedish House Mafia in their live sets and was hugely popular among DJs around the world including Bob Sinclar, David Guetta, Laidback Luke, Dirty South and Roger Sanchez and gained a high position on the Beatport Top 100 chart.
Since then Sebastien spent touring the world throughout France, Spain, Italy, UK, Sweden, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Australia, Brazil, Azerbaijan etc… playing at some of the worldâs most renowned clubs such as Cocoon (Frankfurt), Palais (Cannes), Ministry of Sound (London) to name a few.
