On ’From the Horizon Remixed’ remixers LV, Mwëslee, Kelpe and Fulgeance each revise their favourite tracks from Débruit's Afro-beat surrealist album 'From The Horizon' available here on 2 × 12" Blue Vinyl, CD & Download

'From The Horizon' splices the musical roots and subsequent evolutionary patterns of Benin, Ghana, Niger, Nigeria and beyond. Driven by adventure, ideological principle and packed with intrigue, authenticity and tribute the album received critical acclaim from Q, Resident Advisor, Dazed & Confused, Quietus, XLR8R, The Wire and beyond. Débruit's genre swerving combinations of instrumentation and style fuse West African musical expression with those of his own - From tribal beginnings through to 70’s highlife and psychedelic afro funk - the album incorporates rather than emulates to create sounds new, unheard and above all fun. Never does the albums depth displace its energy, groove or feel - and on 'From the Horizon Remixed' Débruit chose artists/remixers that continue to reward the listener with effortless enjoyment on many levels.

Visionary prog-hop escapades open the proceedings, Spanish beat scientist Mwëslee (All City / Kindred Spirits / Rush Hour) chose to revise the haunting synth-scape of 'Ouest Wind’s Seagulls'. His ultra-slick synth-boogie abstraction is one for the heads. Club heavy hip-hop that fans of Rustie or Dorian Concept should jump on. Neck-snapping, bass-driven sound design, wild leads, supremely executed melodic awareness and marching glitching snare workouts make this something special.

London trio LV are no strangers to African influences, their recently released album Sebenza (on the excellent Hyperdub label) draws on the South African strains of house and Kwaito (and boasts collaborations with South African artists Okmalumkoolkat, Ruffest and Spoek Mathambo.) Their remix for Débruit sees their focus shift to Ghana and the rapid Highlife infused spine funk of 'Ata'. One of the albums more sonically flamboyant party starters - they keep all the fun but dose up on disarming dancefloor danger, injecting a bouncing low end footwork rhythm before dropping frantic Afro-infused drum & bass breakbeat heat before breaking down with throbbing interpretations of Débruit's trademark scything synths.

Downtempo maestro Kelpe (DC Recordings / Svetlana / Black Acre) injects album opener 'Cri' with heavy thump and vintage-sounding hip-hop groove. Rich, melodic and with added authentic dusty crackle this is head-nodding, disco-flecked, downbeat inventiveness. Working the vocal samples and deftly positioning clattering drum edits with the exotic synths of the original drives the beat and keeps things endearingly freaky and fun.

Fellow frenchman and Musique Large compatriot Fulgeance (All City / One Handed Music / Musique Large) chose the rhythmic gymnastics of 'Zef'. Diving headlong into a kaleidoscopic array of synth arrangements, tumbling leads and crisp handclaps are blended with careering funk and evocative, retro-futurist electronics. His is a faultlessly executed display of multicoloured beatcraft and woozy discoid melodics that exquisitely closes the package.

‘From the Horizon Remixed’ is released October 29th 2012 on Civil Music on 12” Vinyl and Download and features artwork from constant collaborator Rainbowmonkey, which builds on the surrealist ethos, developing the theme of the album art, further abstracting Rene Magritte’s “The False Eye’.
