Reclusive French producer, DJ Tchami has unveiled his long awaited After Life EP. Over the course of 2015, Tchami has released two tracks from the EP, the title track "After Life" featuring Stacy Barthe and then "Missing You" alongside Los Angeles producer AC Slater. He also unveiled "Freakin Girl" in part of his latest Confessions Mix.
The five-track EP shows that Tchami is more than just a "future house" producer, the genre that he helped make so popular along with Oliver Heldens. This is still strong club music, there are varying bass lines, elegant piano melodies and emotive vocals along with some deeper bass growls and throwback 80s house sounds.
Tchami does not release much music, but he is afforded that luxury by his fans because each song he has released has been at such a level of quality that they sound good beyond two or three listens, unlike some other DJs who put out music seemingly just to get back in the conscious of the ADD social media generation.
The EP is the first large project released on Tchami's new label Confession, which keeps with the religious theme that has been a part of his career thus far most notably the priest clothing he performs in.
He has been touring constantly over the past two years, which has slowed the Frenchman's release rate, but now fans can sink their teeth into a more complete project with a diverse range of collaborators including frequent Weeknd producer Illangelo on the slow and subdued "Alone."
The After Life EP will be released tomorrow, Dec. 22. Fans can pre-order the EP on iTunes and stream it in full now via Spin. His previous records were already quite successful, so expect more the same as Tchami looks to wrap of 2015 and jumpstart his 2016 campaign.
