Electronic France

France is home to many world renowned electronic music artists such as Justice, Yelle, Digitalism, Télépopmusic and the legendary Daft Punk

Another day of bouncing around iTunes recommendations led me to Chateau Flight of Versatile Records.  The duo comprised of Gilbert Cohen aka Gilb’R and I:Cube have been producing music together since the mid-90's.

"Their Chateau Flight journey according to I:Cube follows 'no system, [has] no formula, [and is] always a bit different…' Not the worst take if you want yourself and your listeners kept on your toes. Continuously playing versatile DJ sets from Brooklyn to Bombay and back again, you can catch [them] playing heavy techno and house sets as often as free-spirited dance music affairs...According to music journalist wisdom, Gilb’r is simply what they call a DJ’s DJ."

Dirty Vegas, NEW Release!

The British trio made a splash into the music world with the release of their self-titled debut album in 2002 and the hit single "Days Go By."  The band comprised of Ben Harris and Paul Harris on instruments/production and Steve Smith on vocals released their second album titled "One" in the fall of 2003. "One" was much more mellow and rock influenced than "Dirty Vegas," which had much funkier flavor with house inspired beats.

TODAY, marks the release of Dirty Vegas' third album, "Electric Love."  This is definitely a return to their dance music inspired rock roots in the likes of Cut Copy, Passion Pit and MGMT...or perhaps I should say they are in the likes of Dirty Vegas.  Tomorrow they will kick off a US Tour in New York at the Mercury Lounge at 9:30pm (21+).

Moguai, A German Powerhouse

With a career dating back to 1994, German DJ Andre Tegeler or better known as Moguai has exploded in the electroni cmusic scene over the last year.  His debut album WE AR LYVE was the first non-Deadmau5 album released on Mau5trap Recordings

"With recent release on the UK's Skint label, Steve Angello's SIZE records and more penciled releases on Mau5trap and the revitalization of the Punx label, 2011 will surely solidify his reputation as molten-hot property." - http://moguai.com/index.php

Below is a clip of Moguai and Sofi demoing his new track at a beach party in Miami during this year's Winter Music Conference!

Canadian Invasion

As I was walking around Ultra on Saturday I was handed a CD with a business card that read "Y Afterhours - Christian J."  I'd never heard of either but hung onto it to see if the mix was any good.  I finally got around to listening to it this weekend and it looks like I got to make a trip up to Edmonton to Y Afterhours cause Christian J kills it.   The mix was used as a promotional tool for the Canada vs. Miami after party at Nowhere Lounge hosted by Y Afterhours.  I highly recommend checking out his Soundcloud.

Here's the mix:
