Sebastian Thomson is PUBLICIST. He's also a drummer. An excellent one! He loves making music with his friends but he also loves to make music on his own. And when he's not recording or touring with Trans Am, he's working on his solo dance project, PUBLICIST.
PUBLICIST plays on the floor, not on stage, he is of the people and for the people. His formula is quite simple: "Sequencing synths and playing drums in the middle of the dancefloor. With a vocoder."
"Professional Show Business Pt. I" features two original songs plus edits by Moullinex and Zimmer. They are not remixes, instead we asked them for edits (or re-edits or remodels...) of the songs having the dancefloor in mind and without moving far away from the originals. Results are awesome!
The second part will be released late June, featuring two original songs more, an edit by Justin Faust and a remix by the winner of the contest we launched for the track "Come To My Senses".
