Phoenix formed in 1991 in the semi-affluent Parisian suburb of Versailles, in the same culture that produced late-90s bands such as Air and Daft Punk. Interestingly enough, lead guitarist Laurent Brancowitz was part of the band Darlin’ with Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo, who eventually became Daft Punk.
I was most recently reminded of this track as it was used in the closing credits of the most recent episode of the HBO show Entourage (S5Ep2). Since then, it’s been one of those rare tracks that I can’t get out of my head, which has earned it the distinction of being post-worthy… It features a funky bassline, eerie chords, and an overall fun listening experience. Enjoy.

Justice has done a new fifteen minute mix for the Dior Homme fashion show in Paris, just like Daft Punk did last summer for Louis Vuitton. On the 29th of June Justice dropped the brand new track to accompany the runway. The track features heavy synths and bass-lines, harpsichord progressions, and elements of Justice tracks that we all love.
The mix was revealed as a brand new composition by the duo exclusively for the show, and there was no evidence to support a record release of the mix. The track did inevitably leak to the web as a low quality bootleg copy, ripped directly from the video. Today, however, the original clean recording of the track leaked to the web, resurfacing as Planisphere.
We have a copy of the track here for your listening pleasure. Enjoy.

Kitsuné release season compilation returns, the sixth of its kind and still homemade and gold wrapped. There’s more to get excited about on Kitsuné’s sieve, lots of new treasures to find in the river. Quite a lot of as yet unchartered avenues and hot new acts that will probably get raved about in no time. A true gold issue with as ever enough fresh material to impress the blasé-est of blasés.
There’s not just one Kitsuné sound but plenty. Extreme twisted sonorities that will make you jump up and down uncontrollably, enough to electrocute a dancefloor or two. Kitsuné keeps on working for you, manically preparing ground, broadening its musical network without frontiers and outside churches. On board this time there are young girls, sea dogs, Californian twins, young wolves and loonies. A wonderful mess, a spontaneous shamble that screams out loud.
