The French have invaded LA once again! Join them at the 2nd Annual Ooh LA L.A Festival 2010!
“Last year the French invaded the West Coast for the inaugural OohLaLA Festival, leaving a wake of broken baguettes, overturned Peugeots, and Daft Punk helmets filled with brie. Not really.” — LA Weekly
This 3 day music festival will take place at 3 locations (see below for more info). On Sept. 30, French label “Record Makers” will celebrate their 10th anniversary at the El Ray Theater for the first event. Check out their artists like the 21st Century, Gainsbourg-esque, French Pop singer Sébastien Tellier to the knight-riding, Testarossa-speeding, electronic producer Kavinsky! On Oct. 1 , the show will take place at Spaceland in Silverlake featuring The Bewitched Hands and Revolver. Oct. 2 will take place at Club Nokia as Parisian nu-jazz, trip-hop group Gotan Project closes the event, along with General Elektriks and El Hijo de la Cumbia. Get ready for the finest experience from the French touch.

Below you’ll see some new tracks by artists such as Boys Noize, SebastiAn, and more.
Ed Banger‘s over-distorted artist SebastiAn just finished the soundtrack to Romain Gavras‘s film “Notre Jour Viendra”. Like SebastiAn’s style and tastes, the sountrack has a dark and suspenseful feel. Grand pianos, violins, cellos… (you get the picture). The track “Dies Irae” (originally a thirteenth century, Latin hymn, which translates to “Day of Wrath”) has that dark, suspenseful feel. It’s great.. Watch the trailer HERE.
s super-distorted, heavy remix of “Dies Irae” here!
In the heart of Berlin comes the revival of acid haus and electroclash. And who might be behind this? None other than Boys Noize. Alex recently finished his new release on BNR “Yeah/1010 EP”. You’ll hear a lot of analog synths, and beats fresh off a Roland TR-909 sending you way back to 1991. If you like thr track 1010, I recommend you give a listen to Mike Mind’s “Acid Machine”
Sample “1010” below. Like It? Buy the track September 10, 2010.
- On Ed Banger Records, Cassius soon to release “The Rawkers EP”. Listen to “I Love You So” on the EP.
