716 Exclusive Mix – Kelton Prima : Automne Mix


05.12.16 - Guillaume

Kelton Prima has been first mentionned a long time ago on 716 : a 716 playlist in january 2010 then later own a mixtape for 716. But my relation to Kelton Prima is much longer than this, we are friends since 1993 and we have both spent countless hours mixing together at my house. He was already composing music in the early 90’s with an Amiga. 25 years later he is an accomplished producer and a talented dj. His new Ep « « Texas Puissance 77″ on Mathematics recordings, following the « Reactivated » Ep in 2015, has just been released.

All the titles of the tracks from this « Texas Puissance 77″ EP are joking about a possible link between the Texas and the outter Paris department where Kelton is located, the 77. You’ll find his unique disco/electro-funk touch all along the record : the keyboards, the male voices, the vibe, everything is there. Imagine if Prelude would release new tracks in 2016, that might sound like this. I’d rather call it Nu Funky that Nu Disco.

For this 716 Mix, Kelton Prima put a lot of his musical influences : the old school classic rap « Street Justice » by the Rake, the killer 82’s electro « ET Boogie », the singer Brenda Taylor or the French house crew Oscar, the long edit by Andreas of the « Nightgruv » by James Mason, Tevo Howard and his father Rick,  Engian and his disco boogie, the Brazilian Seixlack, and so on…
