Jazz-funk producer Rose Noir shares ‘Modele V’

Vintage Jazz-Funk producer Rose Noir has shared the rhythmically-stimulating record ‘Modele V’, taken from his recently released debut EP, Bloom, via Halfeti Records. The project, which received early support from tastemaker publications Complex UK and Stereofox, is available on vinyl. Recently, Rose Noir helped produce instrumentation for rapper R.A.P Ferreira, formerly known as Milo and Scallops Hotel, featuring on his brand new album 5 to the Eye with Stars. The album has already garnered support from top-tier publications Pitchfork, Stereogum, Brooklyn Vegan, and The FADER as well as radio support from NPR Music.

Based in Paris, France, having lived in London, UK, as well as LA, USA,  Rose Noir composes gripping music inspired by ‘70s motion pictures and obscure music libraries. He is a two-time World Champion turntablist who has performed on numerous internationally acclaimed stages such as Coachella, Sónar, and EDC Las Vegas. The producer has his roots in Hip-Hop and plans to craft beat tapes that nod to pioneering legends Madlib and Jay Dilla. In moniker and music, Rose Noir blends the velveteen delicacy of rose petals with the black-and-white starkness of film noir to create a tension between beauty and darkness. Free of loops or samples, his signature Jazz-funk blend takes its influence from Brian Bennet, Azymuth, Janko Nilovic, and David Axelrod and brings the likes of Isaac Hayes, Curtis Mayfield, and Marc Moulin to mind.

Birthed from a dream, Bloom evokes the thrill of Jazzy ‘70s film soundtracks. Inspired by these, Rose Noir plays in expansive pockets to write deep, intricate records, alive with off-beat rhythmic fills, elaborate motifs, and nuanced musical ornamentation. Humming with the warmth that only analogue can produce, the project features the rare, vintage Solina String Ensemble synth, a mark of the producer’s dedication to creating full-bodied arrangements. Undeniably classic, Rose Noir’s debut EP is rich beyond reason.

Rose Noir tells listeners: “The music is definitely inspired by ‘70s movies, but also by obscure ‘70s libraries music vinyl which is what music supervisors were using as background music in movies, advertisements, TV shows etc…but also nowadays highly sought after by music enthusiasts and hip-hop producers looking for new materials to sample. I don’t have specific scenes in mind, but it’s like I’m trying to write the soundtrack of an imaginary suspense film from the past.”
