Jazz-funk Producer Rose Noir releases Debut EP Bloom

Genre-blending producer Rose Noir released his debut EP, Bloom, on the 28th of October via Halfeti Records. The project has been premiered by Complex UK, featured by Stereofox  and is available on vinyl. On the EP, listeners will find the brass-rich Jazz-funk record ‘Hope’ and, with each cinematic riff, get to know the sound-defining musician who helped establish one of Electronic music’s most prominent genres. The two-time World Champion turntablist has previously worked with rapper R.A.P Ferreira, formerly known as Milo and Scallops Hotel, as well as other celebrity musicians, while his devotion to his craft has placed him on numerous internationally acclaimed stages, namely Coachella, Sónar, and EDC Las Vegas.

Based in Paris, France, having lived in London, UK, as well as LA, USA,  Rose Noir composes gripping music inspired by ‘70s motion pictures and obscure music libraries. The producer has deep roots in Hip-Hop and plans to craft beat tapes that nod to pioneering legends Madlib and Jay Dilla. In moniker and music, Rose Noir blends the velveteen delicacy of rose petals with the black-and-white starkness of film noir to create a tension between beauty and darkness. Free of loops or samples, his signature Jazz-funk blend takes its influence from Brian Bennet, Azymuth, Janko Nilovic, and David Axelrod and brings the likes of Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield, and Marc Moulin to mind.

Birthed from a dream, Bloom evokes the thrill of Jazzy ‘70s film soundtracks. Inspired by these, Rose Noir plays in expansive pockets to write deep, intricate records, alive with off-beat rhythmic fills, elaborate motifs, and nuanced musical ornamentation. Humming with the warmth that only analogue can produce, the project features the rare, vintage Solina String Ensemble synth, a mark of the producer’s dedication to creating full-bodied arrangements. Undeniably classic, Rose Noir’s debut EP is rich beyond reason.

Rose Noir tells listeners: “The music is definitely inspired by ‘70s movies, but also by obscure ‘70s libraries music vinyl which is what music supervisors were using as background music in movies, advertisements, TV shows etc…but also nowadays highly sought after by music enthusiasts and hip-hop producers looking for new materials to sample. I don’t have specific scenes in mind, but it’s like I’m trying to write the soundtrack of an imaginary suspense film from the past.”
