Music Projects

Having grown up in an environment infused by music, Sébastien has, over the years, developed and perfected his skills in piano and musical composition.

His musical background, his interest in a wide range of music and a Diploma in Sound Engineering (2001) allowed him to create his own studio in Brussels. This enabled him to produce not only for himself, but also for other musicians, as well as being able to work on various projects such as short films, corporate films, advertising campaigns, theater & TV.

Outside of producing music and working on various projects Sébastien performed as a DJ under the monikers mr23, Guess What? and T.A.P.E. and was also the keyboardist (live, studio) and co-arranger alongside Nicola Testa. The collaboration with Testa saw Sébastien perform on many prestigious stages in Belgium including Botanique, Ancienne Belgique, Francofolies, Brussels Summer Festival, Grand Place and the important Belgian medias.

Since 2018, he has been focussing on two main areas : composing for television (The Voice, Pekin Express, Ninja Warrior, Touche Pas A Mon Poste, Les Marseillais, Affaire Conclue, etc.) and writing an album for his personal project 'Robinson'; a mixture of atmospheric trip-hop and electronic music.

This section contains Sébastien's main musical projects, current and old.

Frankystyle feat. mr23 'Floating'

Collaborations mr23 2012

Frankystyle is certainly one of the best freestyle soccer and footbag players of the world. His name has since become a reference in the Freestyle Community.

For his new show-reel, he requested to work with my last official release on Teleskopik Recordings 'Floating', which gives a nice atmospheric & smooth flow to the video!

Thanks again to Franky for his continuous support and trust in my work.

mr23 - Floating

mr23 2011

The B-side of mr23's second release with Teleskopik Recordings ‘Floating’ builds from an ominous thrumming with a basic beat; the use of minimal percussion, a groovy and insistent rhythm, strings and a bit of sass give this track loads of atmosphere.

mr23 - Hypnosis

mr23 2011

mr23 returns with an impressive second release on Teleskopik Recordings. While ‘Hypnosis’ develops with an insistent beat and a warbled melody into an undulating and fat track, ‘Floating’ builds from an ominous thrumming with a basic beat; the use of minimal percussion, a groovy and insistent rhythm, strings and a bit of sass give this track loads of atmosphere.
