Following three EPs for Musique Large and two albums for Melting Pot Music and rx:tx, Fulgeance returns to his label and home with “Cubes”, an album that is intense but also more personal, bred on funk, electronica and the combination of bass and beats that remains the Frenchman’s most memorable signature.
The album follows the EP triology of Chico, Low Club and Glamoure, each of which was received with interest and positive feedback from not only the press but also the public.
Different thanks to its analogue textures, tempo changes and a real desire to surprise, “Cubes” is, in the words of its maker, “the coming together of a variety of influences at at time where too many things sound the same”.
The nostalgia of “Neverending” and the back to basics of “Stupido” open proceedings, followed by the flurry of “He Knows” and “Velcro” designed to take the listener into the universe of the man once nicknamed “The Little Prince of the Beat” with broken rhythms that still manage to make bodies move. You may find your head nod on “Sheeeeiit” and “Down”, enough to make your neck hurt even. You may find yourself excited by “Chocolat Orange” before enjoying the lyrical volleys of “Whisper” and the flow of DistantStarr on “The Fan”. “Nightwalker” will take you into a hot and smoky night before “Comptine” brings things to an end.

"Lots to play with, including songs in oft-neglected tempos, which is nice" - DJ Shadow
"More quality from Fulgeance and will be playing on Solid Steel" - DK (Solid Steel)
"The Fulgeance's album is like clumsy robots doing breakdance in the eighties. These robots definitely have a groove, but a groove that human are having difficulties to reproduce. "Cubes" is full a fat beats and in-your-face synths that are hard to resist!" - Ghislain Poirier
"Absolutely superb - full support from me" - Laurent Garnier
