French producer dÉbruit is something else. Traveling to different countries to gain inspiration and learn their musical traditions, this sound architect makes us understand music as the playtime so many musicians revel in. When dÉbruit relocated to London, he lived in a Turkish neighborhood where his curiosity eventually birthed his latest EP, Şiş Sürpriz. Naturally, the work couples traditional Turkish folks instruments with choppy head-knocking electronic sounds. The most recent video from the EP is for the textured and tasty track, “Mezdé,” which provides visuals just as bold as the bassy sounds. His debut album is in production and will center around trips to West Africa. It’s going to be killer, we already know.
