Fulgeance – London Falling

I guess this is the kind of stuff I easily fall for: ease came up with this video for Fulgeance. It’s the beautiful cover artwork of To All Of You playfully moving around as the beats are hitting.

If you haven’t the rest of the album yet, you can stream it in full on SoundCloud. It is available on German label Melting Pot since November 11, 2011.

Fulgeance – Tokyo Blue Nostalgia

As we’re approaching the release of Fulgeance‘s debut album on Melting Pot, here’s another cut taken from To All Of You.

You might have figured by now that every track is dedicated to a city. Last time it was London, this time we give you Tokyo – a special dedication to some Japanese producers and probably my favourite track on the album!

To All Of You will be available November 11, 2011.

Fulgeance – London Falling

Hailing from the south of France, Fulgeance has to be considered one of the leading figures in the beat scene. This coming November sees the release of his debut album To All Of You on German imprint Melting Pot Music and as of today you get a first taste from it.

Watch out for more details and (hopefully) a review of the record before it drops on November 11, 2011.

Cover Artwork

When it comes to fresh beats, there seems to be a lot going on in Germany. Another fine example is the upcoming Puzzles compilation on Augenringe Unter Dem Dritten Auge Records (AUDDA).

A Romanian Jazz Mix by Hubert Daviz

You know I’m always up for something different, so how about some jazz from Romania for a change?
