"Hedonist" is the audio masterpiece of Solveig's conception of contemporary funk and soul. It's an inspired combination of uplifting cuts and cool pieces. The sum of Solveig's vision is exemplified with the single "Everybody" and it's diversity of musical elements. Solveig presents familiar rock 'n roll (like that from Ram Jam's "Black Betty") together with classic Disco in a mélange that sounds quite comfortable to modern music fans... and can't help but inspire a bit of foot tapping or spontaneous dancing breakouts! Their common denominator is an increasingly distinctive "Solveig" production. His aim on the album was to explore the art of writing further (he penned 90% of the lyrics and music), try out new fusions (combining the energy of programmed loops with the vitality of live music, or electronic textures with classical instruments) and above all, have a great time mixing this fascinating cocktail.
