Sebastian Fraye - Vol. 1 (LP)
Sebastian Fraye’s VOL. 1 showcases a selection of instrumental beats that were created between 2009 and 2014. A multitude of both sampled and recorded instruments, tools and techniques were used throughout the album. The thread that ties them all together is through the use of vinyl. Sebastian felt that with his first official album, he needed to honor the traditions of the beatmaking craft and the artists that came before him—not only musically, but visually as well. His album artwork is a curated collection of record store album stickers that were acquired from his personal collection; some of which were taken from records that were sampled in this very album. As a designer, Sebastian feels that the stickers not only have a beautiful aesthetic look, but represent the experience of buying used records from dusty old stores, early Sunday morning swap meets, or local thrift stores—often searching for hours on end until something unique is found. VOL. 1 is truly a tribute to vinyl through its assortment of 24 original beats.
About Sebastian Fraye:
California native Sebastian Fraye started out playing instruments from a very young age, sparking an affinity for drums and beats. Although a graphic designer by trade, his passion for music and producing is endless. His approach to producing is spontaneous and experimental—an exploration of cinematic soundscapes that takes you to another world. Inspired by artists that came before him, he pushes the boundaries of the expected to create his own sound. And his love for music from around the world leaves no door closed when it comes to what could potentially find its way into a new composition. He enjoys digging for obscure sounds and instruments to include into his music, often juxtaposing those from polar opposite origins. He believes the best feeling that comes from creating music is when you surprise yourself.
