News From The Grapevine

A little birdy told me that French electronic music might soon become rather popular with the kids in the clubs. Now I can't say where I got this blisteringly hot tip, but what I can do is urge you to check out some really cool underground acts soon to blossum like Justice and Daft Punk.

..OK, but can we please be serious for a second people? For fucks sake. Check out these crunchy baguettes:

Daft Punk - Da Funk (Casino Inc. Amazing Disco Remix) [alt link]
Daft Punk - Burnin' (Ian Pooley Cut Up Mix) [alt link]

Great fresh funky house remix of a Homework classic by Casino Inc, three colourful French dudes. A nice happy summer tune. And to go with it, a classic mix of Burnin' by Ian Pooley (who is German but I think we can let that one slide) which expands on the super groovy percussion samples in the original.

Justice - The Party (feat. Uffie) [alt link]
Justice - Waters Of Nazareth (Justice Remix) [alt link]

Some new and old here. The Party is a track to be featured on the upcoming album, "", with Uffie helping out on vocals. It's more off an Uffie-style track, without any Justice trademark super distorted hats and electro crispiness, and although all of that is fantastic it's a breath of fresh air to hear them producing something a bit more laid back. Their remix of their own 'Waters', with the help of Feadz, is at the other end of the spectrum - stacks of overdriven effects, crazy rhythms, a song for hardcore Justice fans.
