Hot on the heels of summer, Lips & Rhythm Records is proud to present Escape to the Coast [LRR005], the debut EP from breakout artist Seb Hall. The Los Angeles-based producer has spent his life studying music, with the last five years turning his focus to the development of original productions in his custom-designed home studio. From these late-night sessions, his debut EP has risen to the surface, featuring the best of Hall’s dreamy compositions; all played and recorded live, effortlessly blending together influences from house, disco, funk and soul.
Escape to the Coast rolls along with the breeze, a reflection of Hall’s laidback style from growing up beneath the glow of the southern California sun. The title track sets us up for a musical journey with floating chords rising and falling with a deep beat. Route 1 is a tight percussive number with hints of washed-out surf guitar and punchy low-slung standup bass.
On the B-side, Aquarian Dreams is a chill cut, the setting sun on the horizon interpreted through swirling lines of G-Funk synth and a distant guitar lead. Crew Love/Wolf+Lamb artists, No Regular Play, tie up the EP nicely with a warm dance floor rework of Route 1, complete with phat programming from Nick Debruyn and the tight trumpet work of Greg Paulus woven into the mix.
