ABOUT

Hello there, I am a 21y.o French boy who has been playing the electric guitar for 15 years now.
What's my thing? Well I like to play groovy rhythm and most of all do improvisation on solo, with a rock'n'roll/jazz fusion/blues touch inspired by some of the best guitar players (Guthrie Govan, Jimi Hendrix, Joe Satriani, Van Halen), with a modern groove that I find in electronical funky songs!

I want to play in a band to create some songs and have some fun!
I am looking mostly for one Singer and one Keyboard player (who is into MIDI and like funky sh*t).. and maybe one Rhythm guitar player, one Drum player and Bass guitar player.. any others are more than welcome!
So if you like to have some jams with some friends & bevs feel free to send me a message on fb : Arsene Becu

Influences

I like every kind of music, from rap rnb reggae pop funk rock jazz.
Absolutely ANYTHING with a good groove!
But.. If I would have to highlight one single artist, that would be Gramatik, his approach of music is one of a kind.. and that's because I like the way his songs are written, good instruments playing some impro on jazz/funk with good beats, it's dope!

Let me tell you what I like :

My main songs are electronical musics, and I love this catchy' funky chill vibes that f.e these artists have : FKJ, Daft Punk, Calvin Harris, Galimatias, Selah Sue, Flume, Flight Facilities, Cherokee, Møme.

I'm more into old classic rock songs, like the one you'll find in some old Quentin Tarantino's movies or in the soundtrack of Guardians of the Galaxy. If you know what I'm talkin' about.. come to me and let's play mate!

Speaking about Rap'Rnb, I like to hear some fine instrumentals. I'm listening to N.W.A, Action Bronson, Anderson Paak, Logic, Drake, Childish Gambino, Luke Christopher, The Weeknd, Jay Z, Mac Miller..

SONGS OF THE MOMENT :
Flashing Lights - Kanye West (ft Dwele)
Afternoon Soul - Gramatik
As We Proceed - Grizmatik
Slide - Calvin Harris (ft Frank Ocean & Migos)
Stay - Mac Miller
