PREMIERE: Folamour – Very First Touch (FHUO)
Folamour has been setting the stereos ablaze here at the Discobelle offices since he burst onto our radar last year with an incredible missive for the new minted, Make Believe Disco. Since then, the French beatsmith has been hard at work with his hands in not one, but two labels; Moonrise Hill Material and For Heaven Use Only. FHUO is a solo operation, helmed by Folamour, nee` Bruno, and here we feature a super jazzy cut from the label’s forthcoming, second release.
A split disc that sees Folamour on the a-side and label mate, Parviz, handle the b-side, the “Alerte A Babylone EP” bears all the hallmarks that have come to be associated with Bruno and his ilk. Chunky drums, bulky synthesizers and deftly manipulated samples all blend together to create some lovely, deep house jams. On “Very First Touch,” live drum loops and crowd noises are greeted by ethereal pads while Rhodes riffs and squawking trumpets filter in and our of this uptempo groove.
