“Early last year Guts told mehe wanted to go back to basics and make another MPC/samples based LP. Then, when he instead submitted a full live band album on which he’d worked with Cyril Atef, one of the craziest drummers I know, plus also Ben Abarbanel Wolf, who has worked wonders for Ebo Taylor andPat Thomas, you can imagine my excitement.”-Franck Descollonges, Heavenly Sweetness French national, Ibiza resident and intrepid beach digger Guts, has readied here something very special indeed. Now five albums deep into his recording career, he’s built a loyal fanbase and following from his early days as a beatmaker. Guts’ initial spirit of sampling, sequencing and programming still remains but it has now morphed into something of a full-on musical opus. His journey started with 2007 debut “Le Bienheureux”released on Nightmares On Waximprint Wax On, that led up to2016’s “Eternal”, which was his first endeavour into making an album with a full band, The Pura Vida Band. Having toured extensively with the band in support of the album and playing festivals like Glastonbury, Secret Garden, Green Man andShambala,it was during these shows that something really embedded in him about ideas of how music could be made from a more collective point of view. So now having worked through this stack of ideas, he bestowed this new full length player, ‘Philantropiques’,which marks something radically different from his previous outputs.
‘Philantropiques’is an experimental yet sunny outing, comprising longer tracks that open up into carefully considered arrangements. A tropical afrobeat LP if you like. One strong theme that runs throughout is the vibrations of the Southern Hemisphere, somewhere Guts has been so well associated with over the years. His compilation series, “Beach Diggin”,now in its fifth volume, brings together highly sought after rarities, lovingly curated with long time friend, collaborator and visual artist, Mambo. To help him realize this new musical plan, Guts set up a brand new live band featuring Kenny Rubyon bass, Christiane Prince on drums, Cyril Atef on percussion, alongside Adelaide Songeons and Ben Ababarbanel Wolf on the horns. This was the musical base, around which all the other elements were to be composed by a whole host of other musicians, MCs, vocalists and creatives. Ideas developed were live brass, flutes and even a vibraphone! Once Guts was thick in the musical jungle of creation, intrigued guests come by the studio to see what he was cooking and lend a hand; saxophistJowee Omicil, guitaristLameck Macaba, Djeuhdjoah and Lieutenant Nicholson, storytellerPat Kalla, Brazilian legendPinduca, vocalistsNazaré Perera &Catia Wernec, and also French jazz virtuoso pianist, Mario Canonge. Be it poems, musical solos, a touch of humor, or travel tales between Brazil, the Caribbean islands and Africa, all these artists feature on this LP in some capacity or other. The recording sessions flowed fluently with Guts holding it down at the controls.Afro trance, Brazilian jazz funk and frantic percussion areall explored over this 13 track offering. Lead singles ‘Kenke Corner’ and ‘Mucagiami’step effortlessly between the dancefloor to ballad, the latter featuring a stunning vocal performance from Angolan vocalist, ‘Vum Vum’.With stopovers in Haiti, the Caribbean, Africa and the Amazon, Guts has gone far and wide enlisting various people to present you his new album --he is one true ‘Philantropiques’.

When she decided to buy her son a record every time he got good marks at school, Guts’s mum didn’t realise the terrible effect this would have. Was she dreaming of a sparkling academic career for her son? Well instead she got him hooked on a habit you can never kick: music
GUTS is one of the most famous French beatmaker. He founded the band ALLIANCE ETHNIK which had a strong success in the mid 90’s and spent all these years perfecting his skills alongside Bob Power, Rahzel (The Roots), De La Soul, Common and Biz Markie.
After the band break up in 1999, he did beats for French hip hop band like Sages poetes, Svinkels and Big red (half of Raggasonic). Big Red album production led him to Jamaica where he collaborated with Anthony B, Michael Rose, Sugar Minott…
2007 represented a first major change. Having lived in Paris up till then, he headed for Ibiza. Not for the clubs, though. Instead, in the company of his best friend, the MPC4000 and his precious vinyl record collection, he concocted his first solo album, Guts le Bienheureux. Released on UK label Wax On Records (set up by DJ EASE of Nightmares On Wax), this pack of little instrumental energy pills brought him to international attention on the back of And The Leaving Is Easy and its mariachi brass riffs.
The next step was producing his own records on the Pura Vida Music label that he founded and used to release Freedom, his second album. The tracks are more structured and crammed with subliminal samples that take us through gentle landscapes or plumb dark, dark depths. They extend to over three minutes, which means he can now interest ears other than ones wedded to hip-hop.

The 2011 EP Rage Against My Computer brought his do-it-yourself hiatus to a close and Heavenly Sweetness’s release of Paradise For All confirms this. Paradise for all is an attractive prospect and Guts proves it is not beyond him as he does his level best to keep his promise with these 11 tracks.
