So French Records are an up and coming electro label with a long list of great artists with cheesy names like Freshlovers and Ma5k. Outland has recently released his debut EP with them. Info about this guy is pretty hard to come by but all his tracks and graphics are inspired by a retro Amiga game called 'Shadow of the Beast'. The closest thing he sounds to would be Danger/Kavinsky inspired film music. Heavy sound that should be listened to loud on good speakers. Myspace versions sound alot better than youtube.

Oh Yes.

I've become so distracted with the impending greatness that is Rhythm and Vines 2010 that I'm now on track to potentially fail my multiple mid-semester tests next week and once again use up all the family's monthly internet. Whoops. Still, after watching these, I wont say it wasn't worth it. (Full screen mode highly recommended).

C&S hasn't been announced (yet), but you have got to see the Wall of Death. It's ridiculous. Highlights at 4min and 6.45 if you cant wait.

Mr Mime & Leno Lovecraft

Thought Id do a post on two relatively unknown NZ electronic artists coming through. Both have really unique styles and its exciting to know there is music like this being made here..

Mr Mime

"From the depths of the New Zealand underground electronic scene, Mr Mime attempts to take the listener on a strange and twisted journey rather than just blasting noise into their ears. His influences are said to encompass a wide range of electronic producers from around the globe. This is easily believable considering the variety of his releases. The identity of this character still remains unknown"

Not too much I can really add to that but I do love the flow and variation in these mixes. Definite Mr Oizo and Mr Flash influences mixed with a massive scope of other genres.

Scene One: Out Of The Attic by Mr Mime
Scene Two: Silver Night by Mr Mime
Scene Three: Time Delay by Mr Mime

Leno Lovecraft

"All we have been able to ascertain about Leno Loecraft is that he/she is 18 years old and from Whanganui. Oh, and that he/she is amazingly talented; clearly. Apparently already drawing attention from some of big overseas hitters namely Erol Alkan".

This guy is awesome and seems to be destined for big things. Have included a remix from our friend Dejakal aswell. Check out his soundcloud if you like what you hear there are a bunch of good mixes.

A Little Noisia

A remix from NOSIA who are a Dutch trio who specialise in basically all genres of electronica. They're songs manage to switch from breakbeat to drum and bass to dubstep and back to electro without falling over themselves. Though this song is one of the more electro induced, prodigy tasting creations, it still carries that dark dubstep, d&b sound.

Le Castlevania - Nobody Gets Out Alive (Noisia Remix) by NOISIA
If you haven't realised NOISIA looks like "VISION" upside down... COOL!

Speaking of Prodigy. A rather crude sounding remix of Ian Brown but the vocals from the original carry it for me.
Ian Brown - Just like you (Prodigy Remix)

Carrying on that note:
16bit - Chainsaw Calligraphy (Propatingz Crunk Massacre Remix)
16bit - Chainsaw Calligraphy (Propatingz Crunk Massacre Remix) by Kalimaro

Guess I should throw a self indulgent hip hop post into the mix... I'll save you the lyrical genius however and just drop an instrumental.
