La Recette is a forward-thinking soul quartet based in Paris, led by guitarist, composer and singer Oscar Emch. Influenced by contemporary artists like D’Angelo, Flying Lotus or Thundercat, their sound is urban, uninhibited and driven by the energy of the youth.
From jazz music, they keep the harmony and improvisation, from soul music, it’s the deep presence and from pop and rock, the efficiency and the simplicity.
As you listen to La Recette, you get involved in their flow of sound, humming melodies, feeling the music from your spirit to your body, singing and dancing. In 2015, La Recette released their first EP on Cosmonostro, then they recorded the epic song Space Odyssey arranged for an orchestra of 17 musicians. Their debut on BMM records, Towards Fulfilment, is a collection of deep pop songs including collaboration with legendary French flute player Magic Malik.
La Recette’s second EP is a skillfully played contemporary soul journey through electro pop and psychedelic rock.
