Using the sounds of West Africa as inspiration and sampling material, the hip hop-influenced beats Débruit produces are uniquely colorful. The foreign flavors on his new album, From the Horizon, definitely give his music an otherworldly quality, but what ultimately makes this album so intriguing are Débruit's production chops.
Sampling is the easy part. Assembling the samples together into an intricately rhythmic beat backed some meticulously programmed drum machines is the hard part, and this guy succeeds.
