Fulgeance is right at the helm of a new breed of French producers. A musical samsonite man and entertainer by heart, Fulgeance is one the most in demand MPC rockers worldwide. He has been busy touring the globe, bringing his hyperactive performances to venues from Vilnius to Singapore, Los Angeles, Vienna, London and Tokyo. The festival season saw him tearing up stages from Gilles Peterson's Worldwide Festival in Sète, to Run Vie in Vienna, the Hi-Hat Club in Cologne and the Low End Theory in Los Angeles. His explosive stage persona and live beat mastery had him score a fan base including Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Mary Ann Hobbs or Cosmo Baker.
Fulgeance has released on his own Musique Large imprint as well as on labels like All City (Dublin), One-Handed Music and Brownswood (both from London). So we are more than happy to release his first full album on MPM.
Steeped in soul, hip-hop, disco and avant-garde electronics, Fulgeance has created his very own niche in bass music. Taking on bits and pieces from techno, afrobeat, the UK sub-bass tradition and current phenomena like Skweee, the young producer's debut LP is a far cry from the substance-lacking pre-set copycats that have flooded the beatscene lately. Each of the ten original tracks on ?To All Of You? is a standout tune on it's own, saluting the creative environment and spirit of each city referenced in the title. In order to do so, Fulgeance mixes up diverse musicianship with future beats and a quirky playfulness for his very own b-boy bouillabaisse. With the crystalline soundwaves of ?Hiver Normand? paying hommage to the beauty of a train ride
through his green and rainy native region in France, or ?London Falling? and ?Glasgow Lunacy? nodding respectively to 30 years of UK rave aesthetics. And while ?Montefalco Mato? presents a chopped and screwed version of choir-folkore, ?Tokyo Blue Nostalgia? is a midnight-marauder fuelled by Shibuya's shimmering neon lights.
