We’re pretty excited about the Kitsune Maison party at Village Underground a week on Friday; not only is it my birthday, but Rory Phillips, Classixx and The Twelves are going to be in the same room, and because last time we attended the one at Heaven it was simply ridiculous. This is of course to celebrate the release of the Kitsune Maison Compilation 10, The Fireworks Issue, and on the tracklisting is Disque Oh! by Vaults favourites BeatauCue. BeatauCue are playing at the Kitsune Club Night at Social Club in Paris with Digitalism this Friday, so they’ve put together the first of their new monthly mix series in honour of the mighty fox. With the excellent Pleasurekraft to start off you can’t go far wrong.
After a Summer frequenting the LDN – IBZ flight path to host for their weekly Moda residency at San Antonio’s Eden, Jaymo and Andy George have returned with a huge track of their own. Hold Me Back features Roll Deep’s J2K and encompasses all the elements that, if you listen to their diverse Radio One show, you will have come to expect from these boys; huge electro bass, techy little bleeps and a grimy J2K vocal.
Hold Me Back dropped today on their very own Moda Music with remixes from BeatauCue, Subskrpt and Thomas Gandey (aka Caged Baby) and is available to buy here. We’ve got the Thomas Gandey mix to give away, so why not give it a spin:
What a week, we were looking to the weekend for a rest! There’s no rest for the wicked though. This weekend’s clubbing sees Riva Starr and Hannah Holland over at East Village, Basement Jaxx at Jamm, Brixton and Moshi Moshi Records take over Bloomsbury Bowl tonight. Tomorrow you can catch up with Nelski over at Plan B, James Blake at The Rhythm Factory, and, for those who can’t make it to Space this summer, We Love are throwing one of their oh-so-special parties over at Ministry of Sound, showcasing talent such as DJ Hell, the fantastic 2020 Soundsystem, Ralph Lawson and Paul Woolford. If you’ve still got anything left after that, Ketoloco have invited Ilario Alicante for their Sunday Summer Special at The Light Bar.
Sunshine songs and a bit of fun are always welcome when a rare extended bout of summer comes along. So, included in our happy selection today, we have a remix of a track from drummer, guitarist and songwriter Florrie which features on the forthcoming Kitsuné x Ponystep compilation (released on Monday). On the tracklist is a band you may have noticed us keeping a close eye on, MAY68 (My Ways is sandwiched neatly inbetween Lo-Fi-Fnk and David E. Sugar). Which links seamlessly to MAY68 at Koko tonight. We’ll be heading down to Club NME to catch them still buzzing off a week of media frenzy, following their performance on the BBC Introducing Stage at Glastonbury last weekend.

Quinten 909 – The Motions
You’d never think from their cheeky faces how busy these two have been. BeatauCue are Alexis and Mederic from Caen, who met at school when they were 15.
People (The Crookers, for one) started taking notice when they remixed Major Lazer’s Pon Di Floor, and they’ve also remixed Boys Noize’s Jeffer, Noob & Brodinski’s Peanuts Club, Drop the Lime, Pony Pony Run Run AND French Fries, among other hot names. Actually, anyone you can think of, and they’ve probably done a remix.
Now they’ve reworked the best track (in my opinion) on the excellent Tourist History album from Two Door Cinema Club – Something Good Can Work. The Tourist History album is released 1 March on Kitsuné and this track will also be released on the label as an official remix some time in the near future. Watch this space.
Here’s their February 2010 mix, an exclusive from A-Trak’s blog.
