YUKSEK &*$%#@

Uh (huh) oh (ohhh). Take minks off! Take things off! Take chains off! Take rings off! If only I could have some MOP to present the next list of shanks. Now I'm back in business - and Im about to take it to the New York Stock Exchange. Yuksek, the well distinguished parisian bomb maker - has just released a new remix of The Shoes - ironically called Keep That Control. Its fuckin nuts. To make my point about Yuksek, check out the brand new remix of Booba as well as the rest of these classic mosh pit killers.

Im worried some of you can't handle this. On the latest, Tepr shows how West Coast - of France - keeps it gangst with this bling bling banger. I mean it just spells bounce. Check out the following remix of the fresh parisian group Housse de Racket (above).

Housse de Racket - Oh Yeah! (Tepr remix)

Cause I'm feelin it. A-trak would agree with me on this one. Kid Sister is done up in this flash funk burner, brought to town by Tepr for anyone feelin like theyre oldschool.

Kid Sister - Pro Nails (Tepr Remix)

Some intense tribal shit. Would be crazy with the right kind of lights. Spaced out but fresh nonetheless.

Heads We Dance - Love in The Digital Age (TEPR RMX)

While Im at it. S'all about the breakdown. Be upfront:

The Teenagers - Love No (TEPR Remix)

Ratatat - Seventeen Years

Get up mothafuckeres, cause I'm back like cooked crack. While many of you suckers were designing your Halloween costumes, I was just trying to decide which leather jacket to bust. Feel me on this one.

So if the zombie dance didn't get you twisted, some of this shit will get you mangled. The latest to impress is the unordinary and modestly titled Just A Band, the bangin bordelaise duo comprised of Tom Deluxx and Stella. 'Drugs in My Body' has been getting remixed in rotation by different producers, but this version speaks on another level.

Thieves Like Us - Drugs in My Body (Just A Band remix)

I can't recollect ever hearing an Alex Gopher remix that wasn't on fire, and this one certainly wont be one of them. J.A.B just takes this one to town with arrays of electro butchery and clever fidgety vocals.

Alex Gopher - Belmondo (Just A Band remix)

And finally, the theme music for all pirates and people who either have no teeth or have decaying teeth.

Just A Band - Aarghh!!

Just A Band Myspace


The last time I dropped some heat from Marseille it was IAM and the Funky Family crew that tore up French hip-hop. Now the funk has evolved to the dancefloor and the latest crook is Facteur. Only could I have come across his shit while travelling across continents of blogs and unknown parts of the beat dimension. His Marseille based label Data Airlines is one to keep an eye out for - with artists like Dubmood reppin' the south of France and Sodamnloud! out of Sweden. Get all over these tracks.

Facteur - California
Queen - Bites the Dust (Facteur remix)
Leonard de Leonard - Elephantizer (Facteur remix)


It has come to my attention that clubs have their beat game all wrong. Every big club with famous girls and bottle service keep playing the same soul-less house beats with played out diva vocals and cheesy build-ups. Parties need to be shanked with soul pumped bangers and burned with the disco heat that people like me are talking about.

Luckily there is hope - and the legacies of parisian dancefloor serial-killers remain very much alive. If you've heard of him already, you have probably been intringued. Mr. Oizo, a member of the Ed Banger contigent, has a mixed reputation amongst listeners yet certainly has distinguished himself from an extendend cast of talent from the French capital.

His latest album "Lambs Anger" is an aggressive collection of electronic anarchy. It sieges war on the conventions of any soft electro pop and attacks parts of the brain that make you want to engage in mean and unexplainable dancing. Enjoy 3 of these brand new tracks thanks to UBC

Mr. Oizo - Erreur Jean
Mr. Oizo - Gay Dentists
Mr. Oizo - Hun


Where to begin. I am adamant that the dopest shit around can only be from France. I am even more adamant that electro royalty can only be from Paris. The Parisian duo Teenage Bad Girl (pictured above) brings some of the meanest gut-wretching beats you will ever hear. Their style is unique, gritty and irresistable. It is as if they possess some magic beat-making powers; the nature of their chopped up samples and fidgety funk patterns is heard very seldomly from anyone outside of the gates of the parisian monarchy of funk.

I have posted these tracks because they are mental. Check out their debut album Cocotte (5 stars).

Teenage Bad Girl - Vacuum ZSHARE

Teenage Bad Girl - Hands of a Stranger ZSHARE

Scissor Sisters - I Don't Feel Like Dancing (Teenage Bad Girl Remix) ZSHARE HIGHLY RECMND


It is only appropriate that I kick off this odyssey of beat sharing with one of the tracks that turned me over to the world of bangin electro funk. Over a year ago, my cousin came to me with 10 CD mixes of the hypest shit I've ever heard being played off a compact disk. At first I was confused - not over the sound - but how every club ive ever been to has never played anything remotely similar to what I was starting to listen to.

I therefore begin with Phonat - a British cat from London who only has 19,500 hits on his myspace. Mind blowing for someone who can create ear-gauging bangers that have so much funk and soul that it will have girls flashing their titties on the dancefloor.

The classic remix and certified banger 'Fire' is a must. The bass and drums are brilliant - and when the chorus hits - look out for titties. Also check out these others - which I can call exclusive.
