Souleance is the result of the partnership between talented producer Fulgeance and DJ Soulist of What The Funk. As a remixer and producer, Fulgeance focuses his attention on delivering his own vision of club funk and future breaks with plenty of electronic and hip-hop influences running throughout. Master of the beat pad, Fulgeance’s live energy is at the heart of what Souleance are all about.

DJ Soulist, well-known in Paris as the creator and resident DJ of What The Funk, is the other half of this energetic duo. His inspiration comes from disco, soul, funk, hip-hop and Latin music, and in the past he’s mixed alongside renowned DJs and producers such as Cut Chemist, Keb Darge, DJ Vadim, Quantic, DJ Numark, Dudley Perkins, Madlib and Pilooski.
Together, Soulist’s soulful groove meets the dynamism of Fulgeance’s beats to create an irresistible live electronic act packed with heavy bass and organic soul. Their latest release, La Beat Tape, is aimed squarely at the DJ with a deep selection of breaks and beats from the crates. Packed with party-starting vibes, typically quirky interludes, jazzy beat excursions and blissed-out trip-hop, it follows the huge success of their debut LP, La Belle Vie, which treats its listeners to full-length excursions through Souleance’s penchant for plucking the finest grooves from original records and reworking and enhancing them for the modern dancefloor.
Already playlisted by the likes of Gilles Peterson, Laurent Garnier, Lefto and Jazzanova, Souleance have been whipping up a storm on the live circuit, they’re sure to show Gwdihw a thing or two and with tickets at just £4, you can’t afford to miss out.
