Everyone's favourite French MPC don Fulgeance steps up for his One Handed debut with a heavyweight set aimed squarely at the dancefloor. Already making underground noise with his previous outings of "Low Club" styles on All City and Musique Large, and about to blow up other frequencies with his Peter Digital Orchestra alter-ego, Fulgeance steps out of the beats scene to bring us the bangers. Four tracks of fidegty electrobass grunk-hop-wonk, plus Detroit electro wunderkind Jimmy Edgar on remix duties for 'Ann Arbor', offering a mesmerising 4am stepper variation, deeply trippy and all the better for it.
The other jewel in the One Handed crown, London beat king Paul White is not, contrary to rumour, the alter-ego of Bullion, but squarely is the embodiment of all that is good about a new generation of producers, and he's chasing up his label mate's massive debut 12-inch release with one of his own, surely destined for equal intant-demand status. Featuring three extended tracks from his forthcoming CD-only album 'The Strange Dreams Of Paul White', and two sweet new exclusive bumpers - including a hot Bullion remix - the 'One Eye Open' EP is totally out there on the celestial planes of raw intuitive wonky instrumental brilliance and bound to find its way into all kinds of selector's lists. Mr White is already a firm favourite with the likes of Gilles Peterson, Benji B and Mary Anne Hobbs (he recently served up a brilliant killer session on her show), and is gaining momentum worldwide with every fresh beat.
Mad limited white label 7" containing an exclusive track each from two of the UK's most talked about beatstrumental hop-headed hip-makers. On the strength of little more than a couple of 7"s and a few remixes, both Bullion and Paul White have won enough fans in 2008 to have made an emphatic mark, and this blink-or-you'll-miss-it short run release is sure to be in high demand as the year begin.
