One year ago, just in the following of our 2nd release, one email landed in the RWAV mailbox praising about our label start & the excitement it provided. This email was including some unreleased tracks and signed by the hand of one of my favorite French producers of the last 15 years, Ludovic Llorca.

Beyond the great honor & surprise, this became the beginning of a deep artistic & human connection materialised by the appearance of his Carl Craig tribute, Terres Conquises & Philterism in my Perspectives serie in 2009. It was very clear from the start that these tracks would be the beginning of a long term collaboration on his Art Of Tones project.

The EP presented today is the fruit of Llorca’s inventive vision of what retro-futuristic Black rooted club music should be today. This 3 tracker is a perfect example of what House music can offer at its best when roots, history & identity are not forgotten on the way. The title track The World as I Live it is an hypnotic loopy builder that never stops building and create a unique climax, a kind of vitaminised version of Mr Parrish’s Ugly Edits. The track has proved to be an instant favorite of many House heavyweights such as Tony Humphries, Kink, Mike Monday or D’julz. Breaking Bad is offering an irresistible & more musical version of the Disco Funk rooted sound. For the ones that cherished the famous Raw Cuts of MCDE, this is maybe the sophisticated French savoir-faire answer to them. The track has proved to received early rotation in the best clubs from Berlin to Glasgow, from Istambul to Stockholm.
And finally, the Argument is probably the most hybrid & edgy track of the EP and is genuinely the nugget for the freestylers amongst you.
