About Josip Klobucar
Even as a kid, playing clarinet and attending music school, he was showing interest in music. Growing up in a musical environment put him in contact with diverse musical genres; these influences, ranging from his dad’s jazz and rock vinyl collection to hip hop, electronica and soul, can be heard even in his own productions.
His first music, under the name Rough & Ready, was released on ‘Panorama Nu Europa Phusion’, Tom Wieland’s compilation for Perfect Toy Records. Following that, he has been releasing music as Josip Klobucar for 4lux, Eklektik Records and Svetlana Industries.
He has worked on various projects and collaborated with artist such as Yannah Valdevit, Shuanise, Front 2 black, Lisa Preston, Yoggione, Teebs & Jackhigh, Fulgeance etc. Recently he started performing live/dj sets, sharing the stage with artists like Nosaj thing, 1000 names, Jon Hopkins, d-bridge, The Clonius & Cid rim and others. After numerous compilations and remixes he is releasing his debute mini-album ‘Fallback Functions’ on 4lux Records. There are plans for many new collaborations. Eklektik 2 sides Project is one of them.
Fuelled by Soul/Funk & Disco, the electro-injected sound of Detroit’s Hip-Hop heads, and experimental electronics fom the early analog synthesizer era (Moggi, Moroder, Bernard Fevre), Fulgeance delivers his own vision of club funk and future beats.
Hyperactive by nature, his productions (as Fulgeance, Peter Digital Orchestra or Souleance) have served as a showcase for his MPC skills and rich musical heritage, establishing him as a rising figure in the French beat producer scene with growing worldwide recognition. Live on stage, Fulgeance exposes his full potential as a musician and showman, moving crowds from Tokyo to Vilnius, by way of Los Angeles, Londres, Detroit, Athenes or Tel Aviv with an explosive live set, dynamically beefed up for the club. Whipping up dancefloor funk worldwide, he has established quite a reputation for himself, while repping the independent scene through the label Musique Large. His first EP’s «Chico» and «Low Club» were released on Musique Large to positive acclaim and have been seen on playlists of many dj’s such as Gilles Peterson, Mary Ann Hobbs or LeftO. He also produced songs on the seven-inch series «7*7», All City Records, alongside Hudson Mohawke, Mike Slott, Le Neko and Onra. «Smartbanging» was put out through UK label One Handed Music (Bullion, Paul White), and 2 LP, «TO ALL OF YOU for Melting Pot Music (Koln) & STEP THRU for slovenian label Rx:tx.
