Beats Francais

God! It is SOOO nice to have France alt-beats smashing out of the radio. I doubt we'll ever get the days when Daft Punk, Cassius, Air, Tahiti 80 et al were all we heard at the indie disco but it's certainly welcome relief to shake my ample ass to something that isn't fucking new rave.

Surely this isn't some sort of French reactionary antithesis to Klaxons and the gang over on this side of the Channel??

It appears to be a revolution lead (albeit from the sidelines) by Daft Punk who have ensured than everyone is pulling their socks up, and with socks pulled up almost to their armpits are Justice. OK, they've been about for a bit but debut LP "Cross" beats the living daylights out of any of the New Rave efforts...yes, even the Klaxons!

EGNTS caught them live at Field Day back in august and despite some shit hot mixing they failed to get the crowd going, primarily this wasn't their fault as due to strict curfew rules in Hackney, the pa got quieter and quieter and quieter.

But don't let this put you off, this is club-tastic tuneage and works a thousand times better on record, especially when considered that like so much good euro-pop, they are so delightfully easy to remix with everyone from the majestic MSTRKRFT to (friend of Norway) Alan Braxe to SMD. It is the former which I have chosen to enrich your lives.
