Hibernation is Seb Taylor's electronic downtempo project. With a distinct sonic palette that includes stand up bass, muted trumpet, brush drums, glitches, womps and warm subs the Hibernation sound is crucial listening. Seb brings a lifetime of musical experience to his production, composition and arrangements, and it shows. Listening to Hibernation conjures up future memories of dark smoky jazz clubs, Bladerunner cityscapes, parallel universes, dreams half forgotten and epic nights. This is music with spirit, narrative and detail.
Seb Taylor has been producing for more than 20 years under a number of aliases; Shakta, Kaya Project, Hibernation, Digitalis, Chaos by Design, SE23, Radiate, and Subterfuge. An accomplished guitar player, Seb also plays the tzoura, zheng, banjoud, harmonica, hammered dulcimer, hang drum, and flute as well as supplying the occasional vocal. Seb has performed around the world at clubs, parties and festivals; from "fear and loathing" style scenes in yakuza clubs in Tokyo to the over the top craziness of Shambhala in BC's Kootenay mountains, from Mad Max doofs in the dusty Australian desert to the fabled beaches of Goa. When he's not travelling, Seb can be found in his studio in Brighton, UK. His various electronic music projects have previously had BBC radio one airplay from the likes of Annie Nightingale, John Peel, Danny Rampling, Pathaan and Brandon Block.
The first Hibernation album - some things never change was released on aleph zero in 2008.
