Stream the album preview:
Released 04/06/12 on 2 × 12″ Gold Vinyl with digital download.
Inspired by Western African music past and present ‘From the Horizon’ is Débruit’s debut album. It is the culmination of 3 years work, collecting field recordings, delving into restricted archives, sampling lost African VHS and reinterpreting discovered African melodies and rhythms, for synths and drum machines. This is a remarkable record, filled with groundbreaking combinations of styles and sounds, constructed with passion and energy, driven by adventure and ideological principle and packed with intrigue, authenticity and tribute.
The artwork, by the ever talented and consistent collaborator “The Rainbowmonkey” draws on the ethos of the album project further, paying homage to Belgian surrealist René Magritte’s 1928 work ‘The False Mirror’.
“être surréaliste c’est bannir le ‘déja vu’ pour faire du ‘pas encore vu’ ”
“To be a surrealist means forgetting all of what you have seen, and being always on the lookout for what has never been.”
- Rene Magritte
A quote that whilst more poetic in its native French, parallels the principles of the creative process undertaken by Débruit, to make only that which has never been made before, deliberately creating original pieces with unique combinations of instrumentation and style.
