Guts Album Launch (full live band)

gutsjazzcafe

French national, Ibiza resident and intrepid beach digger GUTS, has readied here something very special indeed. Now five albums deep into his recording career, he’s built a loyal fanbase and following from his early days as a beatmaker.

Guts’ initial spirit of sampling, sequencing and programming still remains but it has now morphed into something of a full-on musical opus. His journey started with 2007 debut Le Bienheureux released on Nightmares On Waximprint Wax On, that led up to 2016’s Eternal, which was his first endeavour into making an album with a full band, The Pura Vida Band.

Having toured extensively with the band in support of the album and playing festivals like Glastonbury, Secret Garden, Green Man and Shambala, it was during these shows that something really embedded in him about ideas of how music could be made from a more collective point of view. So now having worked through this stack of ideas, he bestowed this new full length player, Philantropiques, which marks something radically different from his previous outputs.

Philantropiques is an experimental yet sunny outing, comprising longer tracks that open up into carefully considered arrangements. A tropical afrobeat LP if you like. One strong theme that runs throughout is the vibrations of the Southern Hemisphere, somewhere Guts has been so well associated with over the years.
