Single released 20/05/2007
Summer Party/Happy Rabbit
What is that sound coming up and out of the boulevards and cul de sacs
of the arrondissements and alleyways of Paris?..The fifth release from
Moshi Moshi Records' recently launched 7" only label (Moshi Moshi
Singles), emergent electro wunderkid Breakbot's double A side 'Summer
Party'/'Happy Rabbit' is released on May 21st.
I'll make no bones about it...Breakbot crafts party tunes. Big ones.
Following in the footsteps of French electro duo Justice, Parisian
Thibaut Berland aka Breakbot has mastered the art of melting together
all the best elements of dance, electro and hip hop with skill and
precision. And a laptop.
Born in 1981, Thibaut was immersed in the sights and sounds of the
subsequent decade, and remained appropriately pulled between his love
of animation graphics/comics, and music. He chose neither one clear
path, nor another. Possessing a degree in computer graphics, and
having created his first animation short film co-directed with two
friends, Thibaut now makes music videos, commercials and such. By day.
By night however, he cooks up choice cut electronic music,
experimenting with beats, layers, keyboards, vocals, and Daft
Punk-esque get-yo-funk-on basslines.
Whilst Breakbot's remix of Justice's 'Let There Be Light' appears on
their Japanese 'Waters of Nazareth' 12", his double A side with Moshi
Moshi Singles is his debut solo release.
