    *Excerpts from the album. Now available at Experimedia.net.* Parisian synth magician dÉbruit and his melee of jack-knifing riddims, booby trapped syncopation and bass heavy collisions joins the Civil Music stable on his debut album, From the Horizon. Inspired by Western African music past and present, it's the culmination of 3 years work, collecting field recordings, delving into restricted archives, sampling lost African VHS and reinterpreting discovered African melodies and rhythms, for synths and drum machines. This is a remarkable record, filled with groundbreaking combinations of styles and sounds, constructed with passion and energy, driven by adventure and ideological principle and packed with intrigue, authenticity and tribute. The artwork, by the ever talented and consistent collaborator The Rainbowmonkey draws on the ethos of the album project further, paying homage to Belgian surrealist René Magritte's 1928 work The False Mirror. Now based in London, dÉbruit's (Xavier Thomas) music is a no holds barred assault through dark Congolese sound systems, downtown L.A. block parties gone wrong, haze filled Kingston recording studios and freaky Tunisian backstreet souks; all powered by a fat hip hop engine.
