Welcome to this first edition of Azürite Selection of 2021 ! The maestro Cee Elassaad made us the honor to welcome him in our podcast series with a super cool Afro-House set that only him knows the best recipe.
Thunderously thumping rhythms, feel-good melodies and euphoria-dripped soundscapes — welcome to the exhilarating world of Cee ElAssaad, an emerging electronic artist currently making his mark on the global music game. Drawing inspiration from the exotic plains of his home country Morocco, his style is distinctly organic and oozing with originality. Each piece he creates is intricately crafted to perfection, right down to each individual drum. Afrobeat, soul, jazz and hip-hop are his main influences, as he fuses together a flurry of genres to create something fresh and distinctly his.
The young musician first got into music as a child. He would listen to a
diverse range of genres and was enthralled by its ability to truly touch his
soul. For him it’s a way to express his deep innermost emotions for all the
world to see. He’s highly eclectic in his style, opting to blur the line between a large spectrum of different genres. He believes in creative freedom and hopes to bridge the gap between different types of music and bring his listeners on a journey through vibrant soundscapes and emotion-drenched feelings.
