BeatauCue – Falcon Punch EP

BeatauCue, the artists with a name I find it almost impossible remembering how to spell. Apparently the name is a mix of DJ vocabulary and something very rude in French. It’s given me some sort of dyslexia anyway and now I have to write it down two or three times a day, just to get it into my head.

Alexis and Mederic are two French lads from Caen and their new EP, Falcon Punch, is their third to be released on Kitsune, since Cha Cha Cha in spring last year. Falcon Punch is an original six track EP, which starts slowly with opening track ‘Close’ then pretty much smashes the electro crap out of you for the next five tracks. The title track especially is a monster and ‘H.O.W.L’, a collaboration with dance titan Shinichi Osawa, is a throbbing battering ram of a tune, which has much the same effect on me as the synonymous Falcon Punch.

The EP is released as a Beatport exclusive on June 27th and then on general release July4th. Get a taste of it in the downloadable minimix below
