St Germain – Sure Thing

2016 is already abuzz with album announcements, surprising collaborations and rumors about upcoming festivals. Most notably, Coachella’s 2016 lineup drew a lot of attention after LCD Soundsystem announced a sudden comeback.

And it feels like a lot of older acts have made similar announcements early in 2016. Eclectic Philly producer RJD2 announced in January that he’ll be releasing a new album Dame Fortune. Two days ago Massive Attack unveiled that they’ll be releasing their first album in six years.

My point? The old-timers are back with a vengeance. It’s possible that every new year causes an annual resurgence, encouraging former stars to think, this is the year of the comeback. Or the sudden resurgence is reminiscent of something else – a nostalgic whirlwind, an irrepressible auditory craving for something authentic and real. sounds that break free from the tired rise and drop-formula and reinvigorate electronic music’s saturated landscape.

Check out old-timer St. Germain, a Frenchman who specializes in nu jazz. Last year he released his first album in 15 years. And you guessed it, he’ll also be performing at Coachella this year.
