Folamour - Oyabun EP

France 1x12" / 33 ⅓ RPM / EP / Limited Edition


A1 - Novalaise

A2 - La Pierre Et Le Sabre

B1 - Rue D'Amsterdam

B2 - L'île Des Gauchers

Folamour comes here with a crossover 12", exploring the whole spectrum of human emotion through his personal vision of a journey. The vinyl record starts with Novalaise, sweet memory of the french country where the producer's from. The track builds itself up around a slow progression of a catchy acoustic piano loop. The listen goes on with La Pierre et Le Sabre, in which Folamour spreads his love for french 90's House vibes, paying tribute to soul and gospel, two genres that mainly influence him. B-side starts with Rue d'Amsterdam, an undeniably Hip-Hop influenced track on which Folamour develops keyboards, bass and vocal samples around a rough beat, taking the listener away on an inescapable urban dream. The record ends with L'Île des Gauchers, bewitching song inspired by Folamour's literary ravings (Alexandre Jardin in particular). The track progression can be compared as a book reading, rocked by an ubiquitous bassline, attending its voices until the last furrow.

REPRESS COMING SOONFolamour has worked under a number of different aliases and makes poetic music. As a DJ he has lit up dance floors all over France, and he also runs the FHUO Records label. This new nine track LP is the start of a busy year that promises more music on Church and Defected, all after some fine outings on labels like Fauxpas Music and All City Records. The excellent album is an ode to his love of Japanese culture and mixes up beats and house samples, disco swing and future jazz in ways that work both in the club and your living room.The warm and musical ‘Night of Desirable Objects’ kicks things off with loose jazz chords, shuffling beats and welcoming moods that come from smart vocal samples. It’s a brilliantly heartfelt opener that makes way for the slowed down grooves of ‘Y’all Right.’ Trumpets, live drums and gorgeous chords all exude genuine soul and funk, and ‘Petit Prince Du Macadam’ is an exquisite hip hop beat that echoes the great Dilla.Elsewhere, ‘Ivoire’ is a big, afro-tinged cut with bouncy drums and vocals as well as party-starting percussion. ‘Look at Me or I'll Steal Your Eyes’ then pulls back to perfect loops of funky guitar, trilling chords and organic drum work. Like much of the music here, the loveably rough style of Moodymann is a big presence in this one. French filter styles characterise the sunny disco influenced grooves of ‘Devoted to U’, ‘Oyabun’ is a blissed out bit of romantic house, ‘Kickflipin’ That Stuff’ is another gorgeous hip hop interlude weighed down by hot soul and ‘Jah Love’ is a masterfully melodic piece with splashes of cymbal, brilliant key playing and jazz drums that find their way into your heart.This is a fine artistic statement that comes ahead of tour dates and festivals at clubs all over Europe. As such, it is rightly sure to propel Folamour to the next level.

A1 - Every Drop

A2 - A Common Soul

B1 - Cherish The Day

B2 - Time Flies Baby

B3 - E-Ful Ov'me

Second EP by Ethyène on the imprint he co-founded brings us back to the warm urban sound from the last decade of the 2nd Millenium. A bit leaving his early funky touch but staying true to the groove that made his trademark, the Lyon based producer delivers us a more and more personal sound in which we can definitely feel his love for the 90's Neo-Soul, R&B scene from the Philly/NYC area. "The EP starts with Every Drop, establishing the predominant atmosphere of this Ethyène record, built around an amazing 90's soul sample and soulful chords giving a very different colour to the producer's sound than what we've been used before.Then comes A Common Soul, flip of a classic hip hop instrumental turned into an enchanting groove dedicated to set a dancefloor on fire.B Side's first track, Cherish The Day immediately inducts a more melancholic ambience with a sweet mix between soulful vocals and nostalgic trumpet and guitar riffs.Time Flies Baby is the track that links Ethyène precedent work with this new 12". Indeed the track reflects the early Library Music and Jazz influences of the young producer enriched by a low tempo rhythmic section and a groovy bass. As in his previous EP's, Ethyène provides us a deep hip-hop cut to complete the record as a subtle wink to his Lo Life alias."

With this fifth release, the Moonrise Hill guardians decided to deliver a vinyl conceived by half of them on the A-side and two friends they decided to invite on the B-side. The first side of the record is the more club oriented one, with two tracks from Ethyène & Folamour that sums well what made the early Moonrise style, between smart soulful sampling to unstoppable groovy beats that will instantly make you burn a dancefloor. The second side starts with one of the two guests of this record, LB aka Labat, with a house anthem that gathers all the Detroit codes and an undeniable Hip-Hop influence. Toshigi Canopy has been asked to end the record, something that he did perfectly well with a more lo-fi track leaving you with a mysterious poetic taste that the Moonrise Hill guardians have always been defending.
