Happy New Year everyone! 2011 has a bunch of goodies in store for us as we check out some bangin’ releases by artists such as His Majesty Andre, Shadow Dancer, SebastiAn, and many more.

Take a trip back to 1998 in the Roulé/Crydamoure era, when French house ruled the nation. However in 2011, His Majesty Andre of Cheap Thrills Records brings you his new release “Battle of the Spurs EP“, which has the hi-hats, the basslines, and the funky rhythm you would expect from classic, house tracks from the 90s. The EP is scheduled to release on February 6, 2011. If you like this, buy Strip Steve‘s Delta Disco EP & Remixes.

What beats can get darker than BNR’s one-and-only Shadow Dancer? We of course remember some of his heavy bangers like “Soap” and “Cowbois”. In 2011, Shadow Dancer brings you “Murder Room EP”. The morbid artwork is pretty self explanatory as to how dark the tunes are . Check out the preview for the release below!

At last, the long awaited LP by SebastiAn is scheduled to release in 2011. No album cover or LP title has been announced yet, however one track has been confirmed so far. According to many, the track is rumored to be named “Crevasse”. For those of you who remember, Busy P has dropped this track at Coachella Music Festival for about 2 years already, and it’s about time we have the opportunity to listen to it in the car, or drop it yourself! Here’s a rip of the track for all you Cool Cats!

2nd Annual Ooh LA L.A Festival

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.

New Tracks from Ed Rec and BNR!

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.

Notre Jour Viendra

Download Glitch’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”

Boys Noize

Sample “1010” below. Like It? Buy the track September 10, 2010.

====================

Coming Soon:

  • On Ed Banger Records, Cassius soon to release “The Rawkers EP”. Listen to “I Love You So” on the EP.
