Souleance - La Belle Vie - out on First Word Records

Beatmaker Fulgeance (Musique Large) and DJ Soulist (What The Funk) have now partnered quite some time ago under the Souleance guise. We introduced them in 2009 with a cool Souleance - Le Mix and they're now back with their first full length album, La Belle Vie, out April 9th on First Word Records. Three things characterize Souleance's music: the duo's love of hip hop, their ears always on the 'densefloor', and hum… yes!… gritty analog synths - we know you love those! This is their first album and it's really more than a solid effort, with its patchwork of synths, hip hop beats, 80s claps, some broken, bossa or soul, with guests Rashaan Ahmad, Homecut and Shawn Lee. Groovy hits abound in there, our favorites being Le Plaisir and its scratchy JB sample, the hip hop anthem Pride and the soul reconstruction of One Step.
