VanGuard + new Galactik Knights

Lots of new French house to show you today. Yes, more French house. Y'all want electro? Get yourself to Louis Louis then and stop bothering me.

Galactik Knights have done a new bootleg of Etienne De Crécy's "Am I Wrong". This is some of the best work I've heard from the Knights in a while, taking Etienne's lounge-house original and turning it on it's head with a chopped up sample and some classic 909 hats.

Jumping to the other side of the world completely, Wales' VanGuard are made up of 19 year old Tom Morgan and 18 year old James Thomas. They produce glitchy, but still very danceable, 80s tinged house tracks not unlike The Phantom's Revenge. They've been named as BBC Wales' ones to watch for 2010, and gained support from Radio 1's Jaymo & Andy George, Kissy Sell Out and Nick Grimshaw.

Nice post but what do you have against electronic music? I like french house and several other genres of music but you don't see me complaining about it. I like electronic music so are you going to tell me to shove off to louis louis because I like it? I think not.

prez jordan said...

haha lots of people have been complaining that they want more electro :p

Joe said...

got nothing against electronic music. we're a blog devoted near enough entirely to it. electronic music and electro are not the same thing.

just we've been on a bit of a disco tip lately, and loads of people have been complaining that we're not posting enough "FILTHY ELEKTRO HAU5!!!11". i've been getting loads of people bugging me about it on email so i've just told them that i'll be back with more electro soon, but if you really can't wait till then, get yourself over to louis louis because he posts a lot of that stuff.
