Love Is On The Rocks

September 26, 2008

Whilst some people use mp3 blogs as a means to blag free music, entry into gigs and any social function with free drinks (the DZD gallery is good for this) and an excuse to get booked for DJ gigs others use their internet celebrity status for a greater cause, set up labels and give their favourite artists the exposure they deserve.

A case in point are Gallic lovelies Fluokids whose record label Fool House is on the cusp of their virgin release, The (Declaration of) Principles EP by yet another talented French producer, Mondkopf. Those whose faces are glued to the internet may recognise the young Parisian’s name after he remixed Teenagers and Grand National.

Musical critics who get paid for their opinion have compared Mondkopf’s sound to Modeselektor whilst Ed Banger boss Pedro Winter is so excited by Mondkopf’s music he got So Me to design a One To Watch sticker and covered the young Parisian in them.

The (Declaration of) Principles EP switches between sweet techno with thumping kick drums and glitchy hiphop and is several degrees of splendid. Look out for the limited vinyl when it drops on October 4th.

Mondkopf – Sainte

Those who call themselves Parisian might want to let their feet guide them towards the Point FMR on October 4th for the launch party organised in conjunction with RA – Mondkopf will be joined by labelmates Gentlemen Drivers, TyeDie from Italians Do It Better, Kompakt artists Skatebaard, Ortzroka and lots of pretty young things.
