Cassius : Action (feat. Mike D & Cat Power)

The French Touch godfathers return with “Action” with the help of Mike D and Cat Power. It is a track that oozes pure fun like a Deee-Lite or Junior Senior track. An album is definitely coming soon so be on the look out for that later in the year.

Girls Are Short & Cassius


Check this great remix that I just rediscovered today as my iPod was on shuffle. It is a remix of Death from Above 1979 R.I.P. , by Girls are Short aka ALP, 1/2 of MSTRKRFT. It is a totally paying homage to French Filter House. Note the psuedo- Stardust guitar part.

Death from Above 1979 – Romantic Rights (Girls are Short Remix)

I also just started listening to Cassius today and just found out that they are now a band. After being on the French scene for years as an influential French duo they decided to acoustify and translate their songs into the rock and roll world. Pharrell is boys with them so that gives them some street cred as well as having Ghostface make an appearence on their 2nd album, Au Reve. Here is a track from their album 1999.

Danger is the future of this French Touch revival. Justice pioneered that distorted heavy metal dance music but that can only be taken so far and ripped off by many. This is exactly what happened to Daft Punk, Alan Braxe, Cassius, Stardust in the late 90s, everyone began taking their sound which led to a rise of mediocre dance tracks. Danger fuses the nostalgic synth sounds of early video games with slap bass, distorted guitar/synth creating this epic sounding dance music, cerebral dance music.

Danger is releasing his first EP on Ekleroshock Records (Ekleroshock Records) in a few months with a remix by DatA. Danger just posted a new track on his myspace, Revolte at 22H10, so check it out.

This is my fav track by Danger fusing 90s Freestyle future female robot vocals with Rick Wakeman-esque weaving synth lines puncated by a tight drum and power chord rhythm secion. Try to figure out the lyrics. It is some Dada shit.

Danger – 11H30

Danger, Para One, and SebastiAn are at the forefront of this electro revival. Cerebral Dance Music for all!!
