Marseille-based musician/DJ/producer, Lionel Corsini aka DJ Oil is renowned for his unconventional blend of jazz, house and beats. A pioneer on the made-in-France house scene, his former band Troublemakers had the very unique experience of being signed to both the legendary ‘90s house label Guidance and the most famous of all jazz labels, Blue Note.
Taken from his forthcoming album Phantom on BBE Records, ‘A Day’ is a perfect spectacle of why Corsini’s music is so unique. Using modern technology to recreate the virtual orchestra existing in his head, the track infuses Rahsaan Roland Kirk-style ‘flute’ vocalisations with jazz ensemble instrumentation and a stripped-back groove that gives the whole soundscape a saintlike quality. A perfect alternative to any psalms, hymns or spiritual songs you might be listening to as we approach Christmas.
