Şiş Sürpriz EP

Civil Music

Released: 4th April 2011 | 4 track leftfield/idm ep

When French producer debruit relocated to London, it was just the start of a journey that would take him much further east than Hackney. debruit explains; I lived in a Turkish neighbourhood in London and my productions are always a result of curiosity over the sounds and people around me. I wanted to learn more and try something with Turkish music and instruments so I traveled to Turkey in October, and I'm so glad I did.

The end results of debruit's travels are the four painstakingly crafted tracks of Sis Sürpriz (which translates as Skewer Surprise). Traditional Turkish folk instruments are coupled with modern, synthetic sounds on an EP that's full of eastern promise. Opener Accorde Don combines accordion and darbuka drums (a kind of goblet drum) with bump-hop beats, whilst Turkish Ish features zurna flutes, talkbox effects and scything synths. Mezde's bass heavy, low-slung bounce deploys the string sounds of the kabak kemane - a violin-like instrument originating from South eastern Turkey - with darbuka and davul drums. Zurna flutes and synths return on the slo-mo, chopped and screwed digi-funk of Lil Zurna.

Born Xavier Thomas and raised in Brittany, France, debruit's name is an amalgamation of the French words debris (broken glass) and bruit (noise). His boundary-smashing, genre swerving style deliberately veers towards the chaotic - I like when electronic music and instruments lose control of what they're meant to do, he adds.

Sis Sürpriz is the third in debruit's trilogy of EPs which began with futuristic electro hip-hop workout Let's Post Funk featuring Jamie Woon and Om'Mas Keith, and was followed by 2010's African highlife inspired Spatio Temporel. The trio of releases all feature 3-D artwork by German designer Rainbowmonkey, and 3-D glasses are also included for your viewing pleasure.
