Following on from last years ‘Sketches of Transition’ that brought him admiring glances from fellow producers and big scores and praise from critics, Seb Wildblood is back with his first new music of the year in the shape of a new EP, Hazy House, out via his own London / Los Angeles based label all my thoughts.
The skill Wildblood has, or at least amongst them, is his ability to blend together elements of house and electro into something that is still more than fit for the dancefloor. Hazy house fits right into that. He’s focused on the dancefloor with this, these warm chords and fragments of synth melody casting a hazy glow over the house beats that change and evolve at different points.

Seb Wildblood readies his first new release of the year, the ‘Hazy House’ EP. After a year that saw Wildblood releasing his landmark LP, ‘sketches of transition‘ – which received a glowing 8/10 review in DJ Mag and made it into Mixmag’s of Albums of 2019 round-up – his new two-tracker is set for release via his London / Los Angeles based label, all my thoughts, on May 15th.Along with his recently released edits of Rosalia’s ‘A Palé’ and King Krule’s ‘Underclass‘ for charity, the EP marks the DJ/producer’s return to a more dancefloor-focused sound, having ventured further into the worlds of downtempo electronics, R&B and Balearic-imbued house on his introspective and accomplished debut album.
‘Hazy House’ is an encapsulation of what a Seb Wildblood DJ set sounds like in 2020, fusing tough house rhythms with electro’s futuristic atmosphere and an ear for emotive melodic hooks. With dreamy flourishes and subtle complexities, the EP retains much of the depth that ‘sketches’ emphasized, despite being his most club-ready work since 2018’s ‘Grab The Wheel’ EP.
