Etienne De CRAZY

This Sunday we welcome the legendary Etienne De Crecy to Youngblood. Crecy first gained notoriety in the supergroup Motorbass with Philippe Zdar of Cassius, then subsequently went on to form Superdiscount with Alex Gopher-- both groups being pioneers of the French Touch sound.

Since breaking out as a solo artist, he's been focusing on his own tunes and a big-production, visual intensive show that amounts to what's basically a giant seizure inducing cube:

Etienne De Crecy Live 2007 Transmusicales de Rennes from Clement bournat on Vimeo.

Unfortunately, Mr. Crecy won't be gracing us with his epileptic cube (the giant LED screen at Venue should be enough to fulfill all your seizure inducing needs), but he will be doing a good old fashion DJ set that I'm sure will be chock full of more French treats than a Parisian pâtisserie. Here's one of them:

Super Discount & Etienne de Crécy - "My Mind My Mind (Live) [Unreleased Version]"

This was a secret Expendable Youth weapon for a minute. It's a bonafied banger, but nobody really plays it because it never saw a proper, widescale release. It came out on some obscure, pithy compilation called "French Attack" that was exclusive to iTunes. Don't believe me? Search for it on Hype Machine-- it ain't there!

Bonus (Another old Ex Youth el favorito):

Kraftwerk - "Aerodynamik (Alex Gopher & Etienne De Crecy Dynamik Mix)"

We also have local support from URB Next 100 annointed, U-Tern. Here are his two latest edits:

Chromeo - "Night By Night (U-Tern's Aeroplane Blend)"

Felix Da Housecat - "Ready 2 Wear (U-Terns Evening Wear Edit)"

Mighty Foolish

This Sunday we've got a couple of lively youngsters by the name of Mightyfools stopping in at our little party. They hail from the Netherlands (the current hotspot of EDM production) and will be bringing their raucous party stylings with them-- basically their own interpretation of the Dutch sound mixed with bassline and fidget. Also-- they appear to be like 19 years old or something.

BOOTY CALL #11 w/FAKE BLOOD & MIGHTYFOOLS [Paris Social Club] from Tarko on Vimeo.

To all those that wondered what the track was in the Venue opening teaser video from the summer... it's MIGHTYFOOLS!

Boltan - "Creepy (Mightyfools Remix)"

See ya there!

Shinichi Osawa-San

We love Shinichi Osawa. His sound is a unique pastiche of indie sensibility and electro-pop that finds few contemporaries (Digitalism being the primary exception). He's best known for his remix work with Parisian based, chic label Kitsuné and his rendition of the Chemical Brother's "Star Guitar" w/ Au Revoir Simone out on Southern Fried (Europe) & Dim Mak Records (N. America).

Shinichi's playing our fun little dance party this SUNDAY and we couldn't be more excited. Get tickets now! In the meantime, here's some dl love:

(dl) - Clazziquai - "Prayers (Shinichi Osawa Remix)"
(dl) - Bag Raiders - "Turbo Love (Shinichi Osawa Remix)"

But most of you will undoubtedly remember him (or if you weren't aware in his involvement with the biggest dance song of all time, you atleast know/love this song) from this:

Kinda hard to top two monsters like the aforementioned, but Alan Braxe has managed to crank out many tracks that have exemplified his variation on the signature, slick "French touch" sound. Anyways, here's some lesser known Alan Braxe treats:

Anyways-- here's some TBG tracks to sink your teeths into:

Felix Da Housecat - A Retrospective Pt. 3

With Felix Da Housecat's return to Vancouver for our inaugural YOUNGBLOOD this Sunday, our mini retrospective on the Chicago legend comes to a close. I might have summed up his career a little too succinctly (the real heads out there know there's way more to uncover when it comes to FDHC and his many aliases), but these posts were more about highlighting our favorite Felix tracks.

And so here, in 2009 we wait in anticipation for Felix's next musical endeavor in the form of his upcoming album, "He Was King":

HE WAS KING - Track by Track quotes from Felix.

1. We All Wanna Be Prince “Every lyric on that record is from a Prince song. I'm sure Prince is going to hear this! “

2. Plastik Fantastik “Straight up sexy”

3. KickDrum “You know this one!” (DL)


4. Do We Move Your World “Very Human League inspired, my straight up 80s tribute”

5. We “great interlude”

6. Spank You Very Much “A much slower version of Sex Shooter”

7. Do Not Try This At Home “This has a Tom Tom Club type vibe!”

8. Turn Me On A Summer Smile “Quentin Tarantino style live bass, live guitar and spooky keyboards!”

9. Elvi$ “2manydjs and Erol have been hammering this” (DL)

10. LA Ravers “This is the whole chopped up ‘Tweak' vibe”

11. Machine “This is like those Russian girls Tatu! That's my other electro pop moment. The one to make you smile!”

12. He Was King “This is my new ‘Pray For a Star' and that's a BIG STATEMENT because that's the favorite song I ever made. This is right up there!”


And there you have it. Now make sure to bring your asses down to Caprice on Sunday to check this legend in the flesh.

Felix Da Housecat - A Retrospective Pt. 2

Following the fairly swift decline of electro-clash (which made way for the rise of groups like Justice, Digitalism & Simian Mobile Disco and the "genre" "Blog-House"), Felix Da Housecat's prominence began a steady dwindle. He focused his attention to working on a "conceptual" electronic music album with the likes of P.Diddy, which still has yet to see the light of day. However, their collaborating did result in the birth of this track:

Most people are familiar with this version:

DL: Felix Da Housecat ft. P. Diddy - "Jack U" (Angello & Ingrosso Remix)

but we've (Ex Youth) been known to play this version:

DL: Felix Da Housecat ft. P. Diddy - "Jack U" (Angello & Ingrosso Remix/JFK MSTRKRFT Edit)

A few years later in 2007, showing clear influence from the proliferation of the aforementioned "Blog House", Felix came out with the album "Virgo Blaktro & The Movie Disco" ft. the single "Like Something 4 Porno":

EXCLUSIVE DL: Felix Da Housecat "Like Something 4 Porno" (JFK TBG EDIT)

While this interim period produced its fair share of tracks, it was far from the glory he experienced during his reign at the peak of electro-clash.

Up next... Retrospective Pt. 3 and the Present

Felix Da Housecat - A Retrospective Pt. 1

As y'allz already know, we're launching off our BRAND NEW Youngblood Sunday party with the Vancouver return of the one and only legendary Felix Da Housecat.

Felix has a long and storied career as a DJ/Producer, and his influence has helped shape the dance music landscape as we know it today.

Throughout the early to late 90's, Felix Da Housecat was a staple of the Chicago house music scene, but it wasn't until 1998 that we caught a glimpse of his signature style in the album (under his pseudonym Thee Maddkatt Courtship), I Know Elektrikboy. Although the album never saw proper release in either the US or UK, it planted the seed for a sound that would eventually come to define him.

Download: Thee Maddkatt Courtship - "My Life Muzik"

Next we saw Felix developing his sound further into what came to be known as "electro-clash". To this day, he's perhaps best known for being one of the primary architects of this early-mid 00's movement. Likewise, the explosion of this dance music scene in New York's underground helped usher in the rise of parties like the Misshapes and even paved the way for groups like Justice to start gaining recognition.

Download: Felix Da Housecat - "Ready 2 Wear"

Pt. 2 coming soon! Stay Tuned!
