Live Review: SOUNDCLOUD WRAP: Beataucue

2 April 2014 | 11:41 am | Gabe Gleeson

French electronic duo Beataucue return with a brand new single 'Kyllan', out now via Kitsune.

BEATAUCUE are a French electronic duo we've had our eye on for a couple of years now, we were last treated to Australian tours from the boys back in 2010 and 2012. Now they return with a new single 'Kyllan', out now via KITSUNE.

In a recent interview with Purple Sneakers the producers described their sound as 'High energy boom boom dance music for the party'... It's no wonder their seventh release for KITSUNE offers up two very sunny tracks. First the aforementioned 'Kyllan', an understated audio gem that gradually builds up to a bass laden crescendo. Then comes 'Lovato', a sun drenched belearic winner perfectly suited for outdoor raving.

Remixes come courtesy of fellow electronic stalwarts including - JOEFARR who envisages a dark and techno version of the lead track. BELARBI's take is more dance friendly, rising star ASA gives it a smooth, groovy rework and Montréal pair PRINCE CLUB round it off with a rather excellent take on the genre.
