Signed to the quintessentially French electronic music label, Ed Banger, Breakbot breaks away from his peers by forgoing the electro sound that made the label famous. Instead, he dabbles into soul and funk with incredible ease.
Experience the groove when Breakbot celebrates the ete d'amour (summer of love, for you non-French speakers) this Thursday at Grand Central alongside DJs Mike Deuce and Jessica Who. Tickets are still available for $10 via Wantickets.
After the jump, check out the video for "Baby I'm Yours," a track that gets hipsters feeling like they're on Soul Train.
