Belleruche's ‘Best Of’ is a double CD collection bringing together 28 tracks from across the London trio’s four acclaimed albums on Tru Thoughts, as well as carefully selected remixes and B-sides.
To celebrate the release, we will be running competitions and other exciting Belleruche news all this week. Keep your eyes peeled for daily updates.
On the eve of this milestone release, Belleruche have announced that they are saying farewell, or at least, “see you in a bit”; the close-knit trio have decided to pursue individual creative and personal avenues after eight hardworking, exhilarating and globetrotting years of Belleruche.
With CD1 compiled by the label, and CD2 by the band themselves, the range of music on this ‘Best Of’ highlights the diversity and evolution within the always distinctive Belleruche sound. From party rocking, dusty turntable soul anthems such as “Minor Swing” that predated and predicted electro-swing fever, and the laid back hip hop jazz of “Northern Girls” (which has had over 1 million YouTube hits); through distorted bluesy guitar pop outings like BBC 6Muisic Rebel Playlist winner “Fuzz Face”, to latter day forays into delicate and dark, intricately crafted electronica; the twin constants at the heart of Belleruche’s music are irresistibly catchy melodies and genuine raw soul.
