+Download+ BeatauCue – Lyrel EP minimix

K187_11.03.13It’s been a while since BeatauCue’s last release ‘Slow Down’, but the French duo haven’t been sitting around doing nowt with their time. They’ve completed  the ‘Asian Attack tour’ of…Asia and performed at both the London & Tokyo Kitsune nights. They’ve also managed to get into the studio to record the three floor smashing tunes that feature on the ‘Lyrel’ EP, their fifth on Kitsune. Download the minimix below:

BeatauCue North American Tour Mix

BeatauCue are heading out on their first North American tour, taking in 12 shows, 11 cities and 3 countries, all in 2 weeks. Included in the run is the HARD Haunted Mansion on Friday October 28th, which boasts one the best line ups I’ve seen in a while (I’m trying to get Dave to have his stag do there, but I fear it’s a little late). Watch the HARD trailer and correct me if I’m wrong –

As for the BeatauCue boys themselves, check out this vid of them playing Inox Park to see what they’ve got to offer.

To celebrate the whole shebang there’s a gratis hour + mix, which I’m enjoying as I write. Grab it. Tracklist in the comments. Why not say hi, while you’re there…

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

Had I heard of Tigersapien before this week? So much music passes by me everyday that I don’t remember half of it. Tigersapien rang a bell when they got in touch on Twitter t’other day and I checked them out I was like…oh, I dunno. My mind is a sieve, honestly.

Anyway, I checked them out and really liked what I heard. Fate works like that sometimes, throws you something you can get in to. Tigersapien have got that electro rock thing going on, along with bands like Innerpartysystem and DIOYY. They actually play, you know drums and stuff. Their second EP Clean Lines is available to buy today. Go get some
