"Flair Talk" is Lebruce's first EP. Lebruce is the musical identity of Nijmegen born Sebastian Maurits. This artist combines the commercial and theatrical aspects of a live performance.
His first single, “Oh You,” was streamed more than 26,000 times on Spotify. In the summer of 2019 Lebruce could be seen on stages in Berlin, Antwerp, Amsterdam, and elsewhere. “Ice Cold” is his most recent single, and stems from his first EP, which was released in February.
Lebruce is mainstream looking with a sound dose of artistic content. With a high dose of energy on stage, this artist, with a bachelor degree in modern and neoclassical dance, raps, sings, and dances through his performance. Lebruce is a flamboyant gasbag, a charming pop bomb full of energy.
Previously, Lebruce released two single tracks. With these tracks he attracted the attention of festival bookers, and in the summer of 2019 he performed in Berlin, Amsterdam, Antwerp, and Ghent.
“Flair Talk” is an expression devised by Lebruce. “Flair Talk” is a way of living, a way of expressing yourself and to communicate. “Flair Talk” means never disappointing yourself, putting yourself in the first plave, and to motivate yourself. The EP tells the story of a relationship gone awry, and subsequently find the power again to put yourself first, initiate new contacts, allow yourself to flirt, and have a good time.
The EP contains five songs: “Shadow,” “Ice Cold,” “Flair Talk,” “Mint Green Smoke,” and “Cxme Again.” Lebruce takes his listeners on a journey of Flair Talking.
This first song, “Shadow,” evokes the feelings of a negative relationship. It’s time to stop it and appreciate your own value. “Ice Cold” is a power anthem and discusses being nothing more than an ice-cold lover. The other three numbers are uptempo songs describing the coming together, the playfulness, the flirting, and the first physical contact. “Flair Talk” is about meeting a person, and immediately feeling an instant potential. “Mint Green Smoke” evokes the complete submission to the moment, and “Cxme Again” is about time and again reliving the moment, and continuing to search for it.
Highlights in Lebruce’s career are his performances on the Pride Mainstage on Dam Square, Amsterdam in 2019; at “Tasty” in Club SchwuZ, Berlin in 2019; and at the Milkshake Festival, Amsterdam; during Queer Pride, Ghent, on the Antwerp Pride Mainstage, Antwerp; during the Unicorn Festival in Antwerp, and as organizor of “Sjaniekwa” in Club NYX, Amsterdam.
