Lets Post Funk

Civil Music

Released: 15th June 2009 | 2 track leftfield/idm ep

Let's Post Funk comprises two slabs of heavyweight unadulterated future-funk blending wonky electro, West Coast hip-hop, and a certain je ne sais quoi. Creator and Parisian synth-magician dÉbruit is already lauded in his native France and rapidly gathering fans across the UK, US and beyond thanks to his devastating electronic workouts. Clark and DE:Bug magazines, along with several other titles in the French press, have endorsed him as one to watch, and over the Atlantic US publication XLR8R picked 2 of dÉbruit's tracks in their top 50 of 2008.

dÉbruit - real name Xavier Thomas - is set to do further damage, turn heads and trouble ears over the coming months. In addition to the rampaging Let's Post Funk single, live dates and becoming an increasingly in-demand remixer, the sonically flamboyant Frenchman will soon relocate to London in order to finish his forthcoming debut album for Civil Music, the independent British label that's home to Rusko, Kotchy, Drums Of Death and others. dÉbruit is already booked to play UK parties with Joker, Mike Slott, Robert Hood, Bullion, Paul White, Toddla T and Floating Points as well as a main stage performance at Barcelona's Sonar festival and a homecoming hoorah with Afrika Bambaata at the infamous Social Club in Paris.

The squelchy, clipped I'm Goin Wit You sees the boundary-pushing producer coating his rugged, juddering electronics with smooth soulful vocals from guest Om'Mas Keith. Angular beats chop through the mix whilst wild bass and west coast vibes spill everywhere. Om'Mas is one third of LA crew Sa-Ra Creative Partners, and has worked with Jay-Z, Erykah Badu, Kanye West and Andre 3000 - he capably croons the chorus whilst London singer-songwriter Jamie Woon completes the picture with some additional vocals. Soles Sweat features 215:The Freshest Kids aka West Coast emcees and scenesters Cerebral Vortex and Buddy Leezle. The pair featured on Rustie's Cafe De Phresh and here, together with Stray, they low-ride dEbruit's bass-heavy, low-slung beats to show us that hip-hop is about partying, ladies and having a dope sneaker collection.

Let's Post Funk marks dÉbruit's debut release for Civil Music. The single comes complete with special artwork by The Rainbow Monkey - 3-D glasses are included for your viewing pleasure and a 3-D video is also in the works.

"Yo - this is a realy good single from Debruit - more proof that those Musique Large boys have got the edge on the competition. The beat for I'm Goin' is nuts. I can take or leave Ommas on top. Love the art, packaging & generally-killing-it vibes from Civil Music too."
