the shoes.


everyone who knows me has heard me talking about almost nothing else but the shoes throughout the last weeks. those two guys from france are definitely one of my favorite acts right now, i guess one could say i am almost obsessed with them. they have been getting a bit of blog hype already but they still deserve a lot more attention and i am sure this is just the beginning.

'knock out' is a real heavy banging track with distorted drums, slamming guitars and most of all some of the best vocals i have heard in ages. every snare drum hits you like a precise uppercut and every guitar stab is like a hard slap in your face. in their own words: 'showtime! pressure! hate! rage!'. if this doesn't make the crowd freak out, i don't know. get to know the shoes right now:

the shoes - knock out

also up are two remixes of 'knock out', the first one by sevenfive & leroy washington, from now on known as tuff wheelz, who delivered an outstanding eight-minute epic anthem that reminds me of the best days of techno (yeah right, that was like a century ago) by featuring a growling acid bassline and some nice spherical chords along with elements that never go out of fashion: banging drums and old school breakbeats. definitely keep an eye on these guys as well! the second remix was done by tom deluxx who adds some of his trademark style to the original.

add the shoes on myspace and watch out for more from them on discodust very soon, there is still a lot to come!

Not that I mind, but does anyone else notice the trend in these rage-driven tracks? I'm thinking of Pnau's "No More Violence," or to get the semi-desired effect, "NO MORE VIOLENCE!!!"

I actually quite like the grr factor in these new tunes. It just reminds me of shitkicker boots and mosh pits. Oi!

I always enjoy you pictures with each post. They have this impression of being somehow faded, yet appear to be shining. And yeah great songs and that.
