Le Monde EP

A 5 track breaks single (22m 13s) — released May 18th 2009 on First Word Records
First Word are back with another banging release, this time from the first international signing to First Word, Souleance, live and direct from Paris. 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 ). Already receiving radio support from Gilles Peterson on BBC Radio One (Manana is currently featured on his myspace player), the Le Monde EP is the first of many massive releases from thus talented duo.
