SOULEANCE is the result of the partnership between the talented producer Fulgeance and DJ Soulist of What The Funk. Fulgeance is one of the artist belonging to the French label "Musique Large". Leading and managing several projects (Peter Digital Orchestra or Fulgeance solo...), this talented producer and remixer is well known for his devastating beats and his stunning live performances. Focused on hypnotic and electronic Hip Hop, Fulgeance subtlety mixes his different influences in order to extract a "Low Club" groove, anthem and hit track of his last EP at Musique Large.
SOULIST our « démagogue » French funky president, is known in paris for electik sets and is the creator and resident Dj of the Paris' night events What the Funk, which sixth anniversary has just been celebrated. Disco, Soul, Funk, Hip Hop, latin music as an obsession, his mixes have met numerous artists and reknown DJs, such as Cut Chemist, Keb Darge, Dj Vadim, Quantic, DJ Numark, Dudley Perkins, Madlib, Pilooski.
Soulist and Fulgeance met in 2006 while performing and have decided from then to work together on a new project called « Souleance ».... This project is the mixture of Soulist's organic influences and Fulgeance producer 's know how and malice. An uncomplex project mostly inspired by Black Music which sums up several energies, rhythms and beats such as hip hop, tropical, breaks or funky 80’s-boogie- disco style.
Playlisted by Gilles Peterson, Laurent Garnier, LeftO with their Eps "Le Monde" & "Soupape" or "Le Plaisir 7inch" signed on UK label First Word Records their music and explosive live shows have travelled around the world these last two years : Zouk in Singapore, GP's Worldwide Festival in Sète, Nuits Sonores in Lyon, Lodz Kaliska in Krakow, Jazz Café in London, Satta Outside-Lithuania…
