This Friday’s exclusive podcast comes from Parisian synth-funk futurist dÉbruit.
A member of the Musique Large stable with Fulgeance and more, dÉbruit’s brand of hip-hop – finding its space somewhere between Legowelt’s eccentric synth experiments and Rustie’s bottom-heavy crunk – is doing it for us big time right now, and his recent single, ‘Let’s Post-Funk’ is one of the very best 12″s to come from this whole ‘beat scene’ that’s cropped up again in the last couple of years.
The Frenchman’s FACT mix features contributions from touchstones of this sound like Madlib and Dorian Concept, alongside less obvious bits from Kurtis Blow, Konono n°1 and Mweslee, not to mention plenty of dÉbruit’s own material – released and unreleased.
Oh, and if you fancy a visual treat, make sure you peep his latest video, which is designed to be watched with 3D glasses. For a full interview with dÉbruit, http://www.factmag.com/2009/10/09/fact-mix-90-dbruit/
