Parisian multi-instrumentalist Will Galland has been with First Word since late 2014, providing several releases over the years, from his acclaimed debut album ‘The First Day’ to his last EP release, the organic opus ‘Human Being – The Short Story Of The Reed’. Collaborations have included Makaya McCraven, Oddisee, Miles Bonny, Sauce81 (Eglo) and First Word crew such as Eric Lau, Bastien Keb and Sarah Williams White.
He brought a radio show ‘QD Show’ for a year on Le Mellotron before becoming a stay-at-home dad.
His DJ sets are equally as eclectic, he can play Hip-Hop to Broken Beat, Deep House to Bossa Nova and Boogie, Soul, Disco, Jazz to Afro Beat.
For his latest project, composed during pandemic, ‘Movements’ sits firmly in the realms of broken beat. This delectable six-track EP encompasses a series of deeply percussive grooves and squelchy synths. Released soon on First Word Records.
