Where Electro has taken some chops and turns since its European forefathers stepped in, France’s Breakbot has had no trouble staying afloat amid his traditional take on the genre. Back to follow up his highly-acclaimed debut album ‘By Your Side,’ Ed Banger-endorsed Thibaut Berland takes on remix duties for a track off of Para One’s second album, ‘Passion’. Pitching sharp, bubbly leads against warm vintage synths, Breakbot’s remix of ‘When The Night’ maintains the funky approach of the original with melodic substance.
Out now on Beatport.
There is no denying Breakbot’s stellar ear for infectious music. But on hand to don their indie house wizardry to Thibaut Berland’s ‘Baby I’m Yours’ follow-up alongside Irfane, Los Angeles duo Oliver make their debut on Busy P’s Ed Banger Records with an unremitting take on ‘One Out Of Two’. Back on remix duty following their official remix of Foster The People’s ‘Don’t Stop‘, Vaughn Oliver and Oliver Goldstein raise the stakes for Breakbot’s latest countdown release in anticipation for his full-length debut artist album “By Your Side” with a 118 BPM contribution of pure bliss.
Cleansed in spiritual vibes that echo the heyday of emotionally charged club music, Oliver’s soulful charge of Irfane’s frisky vocals and warm vintage lead play suggests resurgence from the moody vibes currently overriding the industry.
Ed Banger Records head honcho Busy P has always had a great sense for what’s a hit and what’s not. With a discography that includes the likes of Daft Punk, Justice and the late DJ Mehdi among others, Thibaut Berland, better known as Breakbot, was never going to be a mediocre signing. Having been somewhat quiet since last year’s inimitable ‘Fantasy’, France-born Berland breaks the silence with ‘Programme’ – the B-side of a new, forthcoming release. See it as a late Easter gift if you will, but Ed Banger are, and have never been, no strangers to free give-aways.
Carrying hallmarks quite similar to the aforementioned smash hit, ‘Programme’ is the epitome of a modern take on French house. Despite holding a kind of poppy appeal, the simplicity and innovativeness hinted within Breakbot’s now given away new original are not to mess with. Borrowing elements from the days DJs were yet to become superstars, the guitar lead and carefully crafted drums make for something of a downright cool new school / old school production. If this, as just a taste, is anything good, I bet you Breakbot’s forthcoming album “By Your Side” is something to eagerly await.
The Italian-Belgian duo Aeroplane recently dropped a new track of theirs. With a Black Van (Kris Menace) and Breakbot remixes in the baggage, it can only go successive! It was released yesterday through Eskimo Recordings, grab yourself a copy of it now!
