With a lifetime spent in rhythm and production, Auflassen is an exuberant maturation and homecoming for Guillaume Coutu Dumont—a sonic distillation of wisdoms acquired over almost 2 decades working in the realm of electronic music. Inspired by the musicianship of pioneering German electronic masters like Burnt Friedman, Jan Jelinek and Pole, Coutu Dumont has crafted his own new direction, revelling in echoes of jazz, exotic textures, fanciful yet restrained arrangements and dashes of soul and techno.
Organic jazzesque improvisations in techno and microhouse; fanciful arrangments; soulful house grooves

Auflassen means “leave open” and refers to a habit of the director Renoir, who would leave the studio door open when he was shooting to “let life in,” which resonated with Coutu Dumont
