If you’ve heard of Club Cheval by now, it’s probably through their solo projects that have pulverized dancefloors from France and beyond. Whether it be the bombast of Myd and Sam Tiba, to the outlandish adventurousness of Panteros666, or the all-encompassing productions of Canblaster; the four men of Club Cheval are all in their own rights, in the right frame of mind to change the dance landscape once again. So naturally, when they got signed to Brodinski’s Bromance imprint, the timing, the label and the vibe seemed right. It made perfect sense, considering you need a bromance to make music like this. With their first official Club Cheval track out now (split with a new Brodinski cut), they took the time to speak to URB about their roles, their history and what’s next. Check out the interview with Club Cheval as well as their peculiar video for “Now U Realize” after the jump.
French louche legend Sebastien Tellier will release a compilation of remixes from his surprisingly still relevant certain to be a hit 2008 album, Sexuality, September 10 on Record Maker. Of course, much of the records longevity can be attributed to some of the stellar remixes that turned Sexuality into an unexpected classic, including Aeroplanes disco-perfect version of “Kilometer” and SebastiAn‘s choppy french take on “Sexual Sportswear.” Tellier’s will also perform an acoustic show in Los Angeles to celebrate Record Maker’s 10 Year Anniversary as part of the french government’s Oh La La Festival on September 20th. Also on the line-up are fellow countrymen Kavinsky, Acid Washed and Turzi. Full set list of Sexuality Remix after the jump.
The world of electronic music shifts accordingly to scenes, trends and fads at any given moment.

The world of French/filter house’s decline in the early 2000s gave rise to the formation of the now-famed Ed Banger Records, run by former Daft Punk manager Pedro “Busy P” Winter. Focusing on releasing music that had a slight feel of the past as a well a loud vision of the future, Busy P began work by signing artists such as Sebastian, Kavinsky, DJ Mehdi and the now-golden boys that are Justice. With seven years of music, touring and support from all over the world, Ed Banger landed in New York City to celebrate its seventh anniversary to a packed house at Terminal 5. What ensued is what many patrons accepted as a rowdy good time with distorted bass, an almost rock-show atmosphere and lots of screaming fans; however, for people rooted in the electronic world, they might have expected something entirely and radically different. …MORE
