Breakbot Makes U.S. Debut With Digital Release of “By Your Side”

By on December 11, 2012

After delighting dance floors around the world with his infectious hit song “Baby I’m Yours” and killer remixes for Justice and Metronomy, French premiere DJ and multi-instrumentalist Breakbot will finally make his U.S. debut with the digital release of the highly-anticipated album By Your Side out December 11 via Because Music/Sire. Available now on iTunes, By Your Side will be released physically in the U.S. on March 5, 2013. 


Breakbot’s live performance of Baby I’m Yours (feat. Irfane):


By Your Side has garnered considerable acclaim since its release in Breakbot’s native France earlier this Fall (via Because Music/Ed Banger Records). URB declares “Breakbot is paving the way for a new definition of electro-pop, using smooth tunes, retro vocals, catchy beats, and mixing them together to create a truly original sound.” Similarly, ELLE France proclaims it “a veritable invitation to happiness for the ears.”


It was Breakbot (aka Thibault Berland)’s intention to create an album that rewards you for listening to it as a whole. Berland explains, “I guess you could say my album is more a pop songs album than a Berlin techno record with water drops sounds in it – I wanted to make a pop journey that would have all my influences, without being a reference catalog.”


The album features several guest vocalists including Irfane, Ruckazoid, and Bjorn Synneby from Pacific!, but otherwise, multi-instrumentalist Berland plays and records everything on his own. “I do everything myself except the vocals,” explains Berland. “Breakbot is a dude in a basement looking for melodies.”
