Originating in 2013, Slowz acclaimed brand of future soul and mood electronica is getting notices and playlisted worldwide. The France-based producer is ushering in a wealth of collaboration and projects within a short period of time since inception a couple of years ago. Released on Folistar, Slowz first EP "Paradise" at the end of 2015 included "Take Me Away" featuring Mystery Skulls. Fast forward 1 year to find La Belle Musique release the heralded e.p. "Prime of Life" featuring the hits "Morning Lights" feat. Clarens, "Holding You" and "In This Moment Forever" again featuring a favorite collaborator Mystery Skulls.
Coming from a musical background spurred Slowz to get in the studio and try his hand at creating. His father is a great jazz pianist, having played in several bands since a young age, while his mother also played guitar. Explains Slowz, "I think my passion for music definitely came thanks to my parents. I've always been interested by the construction of a song and how it's been produced, etc. Finally, I decided to create my own music!"
Gaining recognition and notoriety right out the gate with his initial and subsequent single and e.p. releases, Slowz remains open to what may become the seed of an idea for a song or production. He never ceases to explore deftly mixing an amalgam of textures woven from r&b, funk, and electronica.
He continues, "These days my inspiration comes from listening to music generally and also my environment. For example, the most inspiring moment is situated in the morning with the first glows of dawning light. I love the vibes of label Roche Musique, the cloud rap scene with artists such as Oliver Francis, Yung Hurn and PNL, as well as R&B music with artists such as OneCue and H.E.R. In fact, the style of music doesn't matter so much, I'm just looking to get an emotional feeling."
Of his upcoming music, releases and collaborations, Slowz says it is about "...the feeling I have and can give to people. My music is always - always - talking about love. Everything is around love. It's the most inspiring thing of my life." Slowz went #1 on Hype Machine earlier this year for the Stan Sax edit of "Holding You" and has lent his sought-after remix skills to recent releases by Laura Mvula, Lizzo, Meeka Kates, Vali, Adian Coker, Trey Songz and Philippe Cohen Solal (of Gotan Project) and has not one but two new EPs on the shelf ready to drop very soon.
