There clearly seems to be something in the French air that gets producers to push for a light-hearted, soulful house tip. In the vein of a Pépé Bradock and other chilled, sun-kissed house traders, Bruno B. – better known as Folamour – has emerged as one of the genre’s latest and most trustworthy representatives to grace us with his delicate, highly melodic touch.
Be it via his own labels Moonrise Hill Material and FHUO Records or German label Fauxpas Musik which released his debut full-length back in 2015, Folamour has rapidly conquered classic and deep house aficionados with his low-slung, piano-strewn tunes and summer-flavoured groovers that made quite some noise in and out of the French house music community, which didn’t fail at catching the attention of some choice labels, including Dublin’s finest All City Records.
On his debut transmission for the Irish label, Folamour serves up three finely-crafted cuts of loose, heliotropic deep house to attack 2017 on the right foot. Vibraphone blazing, the French producer jazzes things up with a fine mixture of velveteen synth apostrophes and upfront clanky hats doing the yo-yo to bring further jacking efficiency to a well-rounded smokey funk groove. Now that’s a party lighter!
Shakkei is released via All City in January, pre-order a vinyl copy from Juno.
