The man behind some infamously amazing and joyful live sets, a successful first album for Musique Risqué, a great EP for Oslo, and a brilliant debut on Circus Company with Petit Djinns-including the underground hit ‘Sous l’Arbre’, Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts is now back on CC with ‘I Was On My Way To Hell’. A delicious two-tracker for different moments, covering two distinct vibes perfectly. On the A side ‘I Was On My Way To Hell’ is a jam that bubbles over like a volcano with a marvelous synth pad melody building along with a gospel preacher sample. All the while a heavy groove powers away underneath- he’s got the secret! On the B side, we are taken to a more quiet but still melodic environment. ‘Can’t Argue With Silence’ opens up with a rolling bass line, a simple refined groove, and then gradually sprinkles tasteful acoustic hits and ethno-styled synth stabs on top. Close your eyes and feel the heat of an ‘arabian night’ inna Guillaume & the Coutu Dumonts house sylee!

CCS031 in the media

2000 and one (Intacto): “Guillaume is one of my favorite house producers at the moment. his style is so mature, so sexy and so funky. when i play his stuff all the grils dance!!! phat shit man...”

Adultnapper Audiomatique: “hot damn thats a great record! I think this is my first 10/10. I just cant find anything wrong with this record. sick.”

Anja Schneider Mobilee Records: “love the way to hell of guillaume ! Great work then always! very groovy will play ! ”

Anja Schneider Mobilee Records: “After playin this track I have to say Its a bomb !!! Wow ! KILLER”

Craig Richards (Fabric): “I love these two guys and also the label.....very very good.”

Debug (GER): “Ach, ein Preachertrack. Einer mit Gewissen auch noch. Was will man mehr. Das ist genau das Thema mit dem Guillaume aufräumen kann, und das tut er. Der Bass wältzt sich da durch, die Sequenzen blubbern ausgelassen, und der Track hat soviel Wucht, dass man sofort glaubt, mit großem G. Wuchtiger Killer für den Dancefloor, der nach Führung verlangt, die aus dem puren Grollen der Intensität kommt. Die Rückseite, "Can't Argue With Silence" gehört definitiv zu den wenigen Tracks, denen ich die leicht arabischen Melodien abnehme. Xylophonfunk mit schleichend deepem Gewissen und einer Sehnsucht die sich selbst Erfüllung ist. bleed”

Dj Deep (Deeply Rooted): “Nice mixture of House and Techno on this record. The preacher vocal is a cool idea when the more electronic flip side is a real cool track”

Dj Koze (International Pony): “another great release from guillaUME. really like both tracks and will play soon..:!”

Dj T (Get Physical): “great cover by the way...:) i like the a-side, deep and driving percussion house flavoured with a whiff of electro.”

D\'julz (Pokerflat): “2 great tracks , in the chart!”

Gilles Smith (secret sundaze/t: “WILL PLAY. Another winner from Guillaume...the track has a great, organic relentless flow. "Can't Argue With Silence" is cool too with its more slinky, subtle style”

Groove Mag (GER): “Fantastisch, wie immer. Man wiederholt sich und gerät mitunter in die Gefahr, zu unkritisch zu sein, aber was und wer soll dieser Tage gegen Guillaume Coutu Dumont anstinken? Der Titeltrack ist ein formidabler Gospelschieber mit funky Synths, der sich kongenial mit Johnny Ds „Orbitalife“ vermählen lässt. „Can’t Argue With Silence“ wiederum ist ein reich mit Arabesken verzierter Zeitverdampfungs-Hit. Und wenn zudem die Gestaltung auch noch ein preisverdächtiger Knaller ist, bleibt nur ein Wort: perfekt. cdb”

Italoboyz Get Physical - Mothe: “this is absolute quality, both track, amazing...”

James Flavour (Dirt Crew): “DOPE RECORD!”

Jimpster (Freerange): “Oh yeah, another killer Circus release. One of my fave labels right now. Loving Silence on this one. ”

Nick Höppner(My My / Playhouse: “ I really like "I Was On My Way To Hell". Lovely blues harmonies on top of a rolling groove. can see this working big time at our night tomorrow at watergate. thanks a lot! ”

OLEG POLIAKOV (Circus Company): “ Beautiful subtile, deep, atmospheric tracks ! these tracks give me the feeling that Guillaume would like to go back to Africa, to enjoy silence and solitude in a desert where the time seemed to stopped many years ago. i can already hear a muezzin ! Introspective tracks, i need to play them in an after party in Sahara ! ”

Paulo Olarte (fresh fish/iebe: “This records rocks, each track special in it´s own way, will play and play and play and play...”
