About a month ago Du Tonc gave away their stellar sounding rework of the 1992 released Annie Lennox track “Little Bird”, support came from the likes of Tensnake, The Magician, Yuksek and The Aston Shuffle.

Now, friend and filmmaker Stef Smith has made a “found footage music video” paying homage to the creative force that is Annie Lennox. Exploring both her incredible imagination through performance and quiet sensitivity in the real world. Stef said she wanted to show both her moments of joy and reflection previously captured on film.

KCPK - Who Wants It - Artwork

Coming straight out of Reims in France, KCPK is a crossgenre trio that have done collaborations with the likes of Brodinski, Yuksek and The Shoes and the group have also been the main force behind the PANIK parties, curating lineups with artists as diverse as Laurent Garnier, Groove Armada, Amon Tobin, and Andrew Weatherall.

On their new single “Who Wants It” they’ve worked with Philly rapper STS (well known from his work with beat wizard RJD2) for a track that blends electro, hip hop and pop, the remix premiere that we laid our mitts on comes from London/Paris based duo Postaal who in turn churns out a stomper of a remix with a pianohouse sounding lead that lifts it into one uplifting and epic anthem.

Yuksek has been pretty quiet over the past few months but that’s because he’s been focusing his energy into his new label Partyfine.

The latest release comes from Parisian producer Jean Tonique that sounds like a cool mojito on a hot summer day. The seven track “You” EP is some good old fashioned nu-disco, dripping with beats that scream summertime. Take a listen to our three track picks from the EP below.

The Alexanders, or known separately as Alex Metric and Yuksek are back with a new funky tune going by the name “Pwoin Pwoin Pwoin”, and that’s exactly what it sounds like. Building synth work sprinkled with some intergalactic woogs and woggles, all over a 4/4 house beat. Set to be released off of Yuksek’s imprint Partyfine on August 25th, “Pwoin Pwoin Pwoin” is a great addition to the already stellar discography of the young label.

French producer/dj and Partyfine label boss Yuksek gives us a blast from the past with his dj-friendly edit of that 90’s indie mega hit “Girls & Boys” by Blur.

“To thank you for the big support and following (you’re now 20k on my soundcloud) I wanted to give you this little “dj friendly” edit of one of my 90’s favorite song. This is about teenage time and wasted youth for me…”

French trio Juveniles have been quietly crafting an infectious brand of indie synth rock thats draws heavily on the noir romanticism of 80s new wave acts like Tears for Fears and Modern English. In collaboration with famed disco house producer Yuksek, the group has released a string of top-notch singles on Kitsuné and other labels, culminating in their recent triumph “Strangers.” Fans of Midi Matilda and Citizens! are likely to enjoy this track, which climaxes with sparkling “Everybody Wants to Rule the World” style guitar riffs. “Strangers” was released March 18th via Juveniles’ own Paradis Records, alongside lovely remixes from French compatriots Jupiter and Le Crayon.
