Next up on Lee Burridge's renowned daydream house imprint is French progressive house veteran Sebastien Leger. Although not having as prolific an output as he did throughout the late '90s/early '00s, it's all been about quality not quantity in recent times - first signalled by a tremendous return to form a couple of years back with his Jelly Bean EP for Systematic Recordings. Given Leger's experience in creating in deep, mellowed and entrancing sounds, there was no doubt in our minds that he could nail that perfect groove for All Day I Dream - and these three tracks are just perfect for drifting on a dancefloor atop a rooftop party downtown. The first track is an ode to the label and it's chief (if we've ever heard one) titled "Rocket To Lee's Little Cloud", followed by similarly slinky and melodic tech-house journeys like "Satellite" and the absolutely majestic "Underwater" which is as immersive as the title suggests.
Sebastien Leger's discography is vast, to say the least, but the French producer rarely releases anything that's not up to scratch. Happily, this two-track missive on the admirable All Day I Dream imprint could be considered one of his most ear-catching EPs to date. What's most striking is the blissful, synthesizer-driven melodiousness at the heart of both "Lost Miracle" - a ten minute chunk of head-in-the clouds loveliness that layers a rolling tech-house groove with tumbling piano lines and swirling synthesizer motifs - and "Dida". The latter is little less than stunning, with Leger employing both sweeping strings and (presumably sampled) fretless bass style sounds with brilliant results.
