Our final physical release of 2018 at First Word comes courtesy of Souleance, aka the DJ producer duo consisting of Soulist and Fulgeance, with a double A sided single, and a glimpse into one of our forthcoming 2019 releases, ‘French Cassette’ which follows on from Souleance’s acclaimed ‘La Beat Tape’ release from 2013, and again delves into crates of samples with a distinct French flavour.

‘François’ is a track dedicated to the one and only François de Roubaix, legendary film score composer, jazz aficionado and one of the duo’s biggest French influences. A delectable slice of 100 bpm instrumental boom bap, built around a seriously infectious jazz-funk groove, and chopped-up vocals.

‘Sète’ heads to the south of France, to the beautiful Mediterranean city where Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide Festival takes place. A region that the duo have had love and appreciation of, for many years. This one touches up the tempo a little, with some sun-glazed boogie riding beneath ethereal vocals, samples and sizzling synths.

With a decades worth of collaboration between them, and persistent party rocking across Europe, Souleance continue to create tried & tested nuggets of magic for the dancefloor. This double-sided 7” is no exception, and should give you an idea of what to expect from the full beat tape next year. Meanwhile, here’s another essential one for the record bags.
