DBFC, signed to Different Recordings – the electronic imprint of [PIAS] - late last year are set to release their second single for the label when they unveil ‘Autonomic’ on April 29th.
Fronted by Mancunian David Shaw and Parisian Dombrance, this Anglo-French outfit comes together as a four-way collective, not a band as such but more a club. Featuring alongside the duo come percussionist Guillaume Rossel and bassist Victor Paillet. Emerging via tastemaker label Her Majesty’s Ship last summer, the DBFC vision is entrenched within the French electronic music scene but, as witnessed on their debut for Different Recordings, ‘Get It All’, they succeeded in creating a sound that encompasses their multi-facetted talents.

‘Autonomic’ heralds its arrival inhabiting a more dance-orientated world and whilst eschewing elements of their previous single, sees DBFC evolve amidst a flurry of what they have been known to describe as“pyschotronica”. It comes accompanied by an alternate Mod Vision mix - hewn from the original and shaped with hues of Kraftwerk-ish techno courtesy of Dombrance and Shaw themselves.
