Et voilà! Ready to rendezvous with the most contagious sounds you've heard in a long time? In collaboration with the Toulouse festival, Les Siestes Electroniques
, CTM has invited, from French dancefloor horizons, the rising stars of Institubes
and Ed Banger
Records. As everyone knows, French kids are into Hip-Hop, House and Rock. The mix has been distilled to yield a new and dirty sound, a hybrid punk-electro that has become the hallmark of an underground renaissance, epitomised by shining success of Justice and lablemates at Ed Banger – the hype forge of Daft Punk
manager Pedro Winter – and a slew of fresh upstarts. It’s the new wave of French Touch – sleazy sounds and shirts-off hedonism.
Straight from Yuksek
’s heady tech-hop, Berlin interloper Jay Haze
will knock your socks (and more) off with a solo Fuckpony
, throwing together Chicago kicks and choruses for your booty-shaking, four-to-the-floor pleasure. Next up Freak-House duo Nôze
’s relentless beats, Jazz refrains and love of fine wine will draw you in to their stories and crank you up with their oddball antics. Then, the man behind the sound of French Hip-Hop giants TTC
rising star: Para One
Forward to the freshest Parisian Electro-hop sensation, Uffie
, the 19 year old Miami-ite whose lyrics get down and dirty with the Hip-Hop beats of Feadz. Feadz
, better known in Berlin for his BPitch
association with four records to his credit on the label, will be up solo too, and his right hand man Kazey
will follow, spinning from his collection of rare US Ghetto-Tech.
Through an arc of huge synths and thudding kick-drums these artists are gonna bring da house down with a momentum that will take your breath away.
