A couple of days/weeks I posted about the then upcoming EP from Bambounou & Joakim called “Fructose”. Today a really cool interview with the two artists came out with them talking about the unusual collaboration, cheap synths and the party itself. Teki Latex had a great time as he was shouting his infamous “chuichooooo” all night.

anyway, really cool interview, enjoy!

HOW BIG IS THIS?

this is some raw dark techno over here, mates.
Here’s what Rec Room had to say about the track. Sorry for the copy-past shit but sometimes you just have to admit that you can’t do better, and I couldn’t describe this better:

Upcoming early next year on Marble, this remix is proof that Paris is getting more orgiastic than ever. While the Marble Players are busy working with each other under this name and the High Powered Boys tag team, the new Mother EP from Para One also features Surkin on one of its tracks (who, as if that wasn’t enough, is going to record the next Sound Pellegrino Crossover EP). And this remix from Ed Banger’s Mr Oizo has him sounding relatively normal compared to his usual musical ramblings, on a kind of dark techno tip that gives it a hard-edged thud as it rolls along. From Skream’s latest Warehouse Project mixtape.

Konbini is a website, active 24/7, with some really awesome stuff. Describing themselves as “a web based entertainment studio and broadcasting platform for creative and original video content”, they’re absolutely right. It’s my favorite website at the moment because it contains the best music & fashion, always brought with a healthy dose of humor. One of my personal favorits are the auto-interviews. They mail the artists questions and they answer them with what they want, where they want, how they want. It’s very refreshing and so much more fun (I guess for the artists too) to do/watch the interviews. Konbini always comes up with the best ideas e.g. the “heeeeeeeeeere’s Brodinski” videos as sort of fun promo for the fabric live compilation. Also Glentourage is quite amazing. He films at great parties, mostly in LA and Miami, at artists homes, after parties, pool parties… check it out, but be aware, you will want to move there.
Anyway, hope you will have a blast watching the videos and getting to know Konbini (konbini.com)

here’s an example of the most recent auto-interview with the Black Lips. there’s a lot more e.g. Justice, Yuksek, Kasabian, Sammy Bananas, Cassius, Surkin, …
ps: as the website is Paris & London based you’ve got some videos in French and some in English but if you check in the player you’ve got a CC button which provides you of subtitles.

I present you Konbini X Auto – interview X Black Lips: the-auto-interview-black-lips
ps: I’d post the video directly on the blog but the code doesn’t seem to work so just click the link. sorry & thx!

you probably heard the track “Let The Beat Control Your Body” already – unless you lived under a rock for the past 3 months -. As you probably know too it’s been released a little while ago in a split EP together with Gesaffelstein’s Control Movement on Bromance. Bromance is the new label of  Louis Brodinski himself together with Mannu Barron, also known for the management & booking company Savoir Faire and Abracada.

Now you must be thinking “bitch please. I know all that already, what’s new?!”
well … The video is out!

Here’s what the artist of the video, Alain Domagala, had to say about making it + of course the vid itself.

“Everything happened so quickly, even if the idea of a collab had been planned for quite a while now.
I guess the release of “Let The Beat Control Your Body” started the process. We trippingly talked about it when Louis came to Marseille for Marsatac festival in September.
I think this “Dancing with myself” animation – that I started during a residency in Berlin back in 2008 and finished for an exhibition in Marseille – was the impetus for this project. It’s the very first appearance of the skeleton. It’s dumb on purpose, it obviously refers to the music itself, in a different way than its title does. This suggestion gave me the chance to get the skeleton out of its box and to rub it up against the acid tones of the track, such as a tough chafing or a stinging nettle. Just like Louis’ music, full of sound and rhythmical material stratums, above all I prefered to work more on the visual effects than on the illustrative side of the video.”

How refreshing! The Paris-Bombay collection of Chanel for 2011/12 is just beautiful. The venue (as I expected, because Chanel’s shows are always amazingly decorated) was FAB. I think the collection looks so high fashion, so rich, so Chanel. And the colours – wooof! Gold & White, pink, écru. Such a subtle choice to get in balance with the Indian extravaganza and the Paris class.
Check out the foto’s and the show’s trailer:

So this is Zimmer, a Parisian DJ who plays disco, house, funk. this is his november mixtape. On his souncloud page there’s collaborations with other big artists in the genre e.g. Jeremy Glenn. Ps: about Jeremy Glenn; like I told earlier I went to see him DJ on friday. First of all, great set but what was spectacular is that he started singing later that night. And WHAT A VOICE! i was totally shocked. I had to film it I guess but was so blown away. Guess you’ll have to go see him yourself.

Anyway: enjoy ZIMMER while having a look at my little christmas list.
