Here’s a quick deluge of music to ease you through this recent bout of bi polar weather that we’re experiencing. Will it be sunny? Or will it be grey, wet and windy? Only time will tell, but while we wait here are 10 tracks that are rather pleasing to dance to.
Hello Sports fans and Welcome to the Weekend! Your one stop shop to the wondrous things a happening this weekend. I hope you brought your dancing shoes! It may be getting cold and grey here in London, but these events are sure to keep things interesting.
Bot’Ox are Julien Briffaz and Benjamin Boguet, half of Tekel and all of Cosmo Vitelli. This is how they described their meeting:
A parisian encounter in a dark recording studio near République, under the mark of Saint Ambroise, or in the middle of machines, synthesizers, effects emulators, where a pioneer bond was born. Hours of rush, borrowing here and there the roughest sounds for a tangible and sensorial experience, starting with abstract to cut, prune, saw, cut and cut, again and always, to find lucid melodies and blistering rythms.
Blimey – all sounds a bit serious to me. ANYWAY – check out their tunes – ultra laid-back, down tempo house; the exact French sound that I am LOVING at the moment. I bet these guys would be awesome live.
If you liked that, go to their MySpace to check out their other tracks – they’re wicked.
Bot’Ox released an EP yesterday called ‘Overdrive’ (which you can buy here) and are giving away a remix of their new single, by fellow ‘soon to be huge’ Parisian new comers, Logo, absolutely free. Voila.
Parisian mystery duo Acid Washed released their debut single ‘General motors, Detroit, America’ a few months back now. It’s a hypnotic, space disco, little number that’s bound to be playing in chill out rooms across the country, as it’s the perfect track to let your heart beat calm down to.
However the video was officially released only recently. A mesmerizing exercise in Op Art for the French electronica outfit by acclaimed British graphic designer and director Anthony Burrill, with the help of his regular filmmaking collaborator Paul Plowman and Zac Ella. The video has had mixed reviews, a lot of people have said it’s a pretentious piece of shit, which it may well be… But I say whatever, it has pretty colours and eighties shapes, what’s there not too like?
Have a look and listen and see what ya’ll think, also thrown in to the mix is the Gavin Russom (of DFA fame) remix of the flipside track Snake, which also features a dynamic performace from Berlin based vocalist Barbara Panther. Gavin gives us a throbbing 8 minute long latin house/disco remix. Enjoy.
