This week’s venture from INPUT at Output is courtesy of the French label Marble; who have been pushing the sounds of French dance music into places weird and wild for the past few years. In conjunction with their sonic brothers at Sound Pellegrino, the label has continuously flipped the script in regards to what dance music from France is known as. The days of “post-French touch” and “French electro” have gone by the wayside, as people like Surkin and Canblaster have taken bits of slow jams, ’80s, game soundtracks and even J-Pop to create music that’s superbly unique. Another thing to behold about these two artists is their constant knack for executing brilliant DJ sets that range from fantastic soundscapes to frenetic rhythms; as these two never keep things stable for too long. Thus why we here at URB are beyond excited to give you a chance to see them at Output this Thursday, on the cheap. Check out the promo code instructions and a preview, post-jump.
If you’ve not heard the name of Monsieur Monsieur yet in the electronic music world, you’ll be hearing more about them sooner than you think. The duo of Léo Copet and Geoffrey Bougy hail not from Paris but from Reims, where previously French electro reigned king. That’s not to happen on their watch, as they’ve just made their stamp on the scene with their captivating take on all things sub-sonic, splitting BROMANCE5 with the likes of Jacques Lu Cont. Their debut track, “Arym”, straddles the line between minimalist reproach and party techno in a disciplined yet striking fashion; in a way that surely have them popping on everyone’s radar pretty fast. We spoke with the duo about getting signed to Bromance, how they met, and what’s next for Monsieur Monsieur. Check out the interview post-jump.
Behold Cazzette; the dubstep excursion titled “Save the World” charted in the Top 20 on the Beatport Top 100 General Charts for six weeks straight. If that’s not a testament to dancefloor movement, I don’t know what is. This Swedish duo are making their way to nightclubs and DJ-focused events everywhere. They’ve gained steady support from David Guetta, SHM, Avicii and Martin Solveig, among other tastemakers. The word on the street is that their sound is an infectious blend of dub house. Sweden’s latest rising stars are not to be missed with their debut at premiere NYC club Cielo.
Cazzette applied their expertise to Tim Berg’s hit track “Bromance” and came up with a crazy remix.
