Xavier Thomas, better know as French producer Débruit, has been releasing his cohesive concoction of far-flung sounds since his first self-released EP in 2006, before a slew of well-received records courtesy of Civil Music that blended elements of West Coast Hip-Hop, Kwaito House and Dub, amongst many other skewed global sounds. Stand-out single, electro-Afrobeat number ‘Nigeria What’ from 2010′s ‘Spatio Temporal’ EP gained notable attention, with dancers worldwide choreographing their own routines to the track’s infectious chopped vocal hooks and scattering drum work.  He’s also amassed a significant live reputation after performing a particularly electrifying set on the Red Bull stage at Sonar back in 2009 (he’s an RBMA 2008 alumni) and has since been a highly sought after booking, offering a unique and often unexpected approach to live electronic performance.
