Biography :
Souleance is the result of the partnership between producer Fulgeance and DJ Soulist of What The Funk... Fulgeance has been building a reputation in the beats scene with his awesome releases on the French label Musique Large. Leading and managing several projects (Peter Digital Orchestra and Connecticut), this talented producer and remixer is well known for his devastating beats and stunning live performances. Focused on hypnotic and electronic Hip Hop, Fulgeance subtly mixes his influences to create his signature "Low Club" groove, (Low Club Anthem being the lead track on his last Musique Large EP).

Soulist, the French funky president, is the founder and resident DJ of Paris' clubnight What the Funk, which recently celebrated its sixth birthday. A man with an obsession for Disco, Soul, Funk, Hip Hop and Latin, he's shared a stage with some of the biggest names in the worldwide scene including Cut Chemist, Keb Darge, DJ Vadim, Quantic, DJ Numark, Dudley Perkins, Madlib and Pilooski.

Soulist and Flugeance met in 2006 while performing and from that friendship the Souleance project was born: a mixture of Soulist's organic influences and the raw energy and production skill of Fulgeance. The EP covers many genres, taking in Hip Hop (Manana), Breaks (Le Monde and One Step) and even the funkier end of the 80s (Cool FM ). The debut EP was a huge success, winning fans across the globe, including BBC Radio One's Gilles Peterson who included Manana on his Brownswood Bubblers 4 compilation. At the start of 2010 the duo released their second single, a 7" featuring two more dancefloor bangers in the shape of ‘Le Plaisir' and ‘Chemise'. Look out for their debut album later in 2010.
