Madcap and What We Came For are proud to present: BREAKBOT [France / Ed Banger Records]
For the first time in Auckland, we're stoked to bring you one of the finest artists in electronic music, Breakbot. At a rad (secret) location, this Friday evening show will be the ideal way to kick off not only the weekend but also summer.
Breakbot will perform a one-off NZ show as the sun sets in on the beautiful Auckland city. Following the Baby I’m Yours EP and a few other similar projects, Breakbot released his debut album in 2012 on Ed Banger. By Your Side is a sun-filled soundtrack with cheeky writing, where the bass line and the guitar answered each other in a rhythmic love fest.
Together, Breakbot and Irfane presented By Your Side in all the big cities of the world on a tour that lasted almost two years. This long meandering finally gave the two friends the idea to create a duo. In 2016, the new Breakbot version “one plus one” released their second album Still Waters - a new assortment of southern sunrays which conjures swinging images of dancefloors filled with guys in flowing trousers and bare-shouldered young girls.
Unlike the previous album, Still Waters is more of a matrix with intricate workmanship, carved out with the help of old analogue machines rather than software’s. Thirteen bouncy tunes with Stevie Wonder and the Motown crowd in the background, and spouts of funk and disco on a well-trodden dance floor. Crafty ideas whipped-up in a vintage outfit with techno vibes and futuristic accelerations create the perfectly current soundtrack that is Breakbot.
