revolte.


regular discodust readers should know revolte from previous posts or from the 'boombox' compilation on kitsuné, are back with two new tracks in which they let us follow them on their quest for new sounds. listening to 'guess what' and 'blackout' remembers me of the days when ed banger records had their peaktime - when everyone held their breath for new releases and they constantly kept surprising everyone.

i am not sure if that's what revolte were going for but i think they wanted to push things forward while still remembering all the good moments we loved throughout the initial phase of what used to be 'the new sound'. anyway, judge for yourself but i am sure i will hear those tracks played out in the near future:

revolte - guess what
revolte - blackout

show revolte some myspace love!

a totally differrent person then the first commenter, yet also called anonymous said...

to me it seems that ed banger is finally done milking what was left of aa-wearing fourteen year old gils with glow-in-the-dark-kanye-west-glasses since those are now far more into joy division anyway and try to go back to their roots, putting a lot of tracks on their new compilation that concentrate on the production rather than the amout of clipping and distortion (which they never did too much in the first place, at least not as much as all the copycats that followed). the new stuff is pretty mellow which i embrase a lot and i never liked dj mehdi and krazy baldhead more than now. then again, yes, the uffie track sucks big time which is propably not so much her fault but feadz' since the other feadz track and the feadz ep end everything else that had his name on it for the past months was plain teribble. you can certainly say that about a lot of things released on ed banger lately, but it's not as if they never released scum before. ed rec vol 2 was not that good either, let's be honest. so what i wanted to say is that if nobody ever acted as if ed banger was the only relevant record label in the world, nobody would be dissapoited now and people could appreciate the change in style that happens with them and everybody else at the moment. as far as the revolte tracks go, they are absolutely nuts. hand down. and they wouldn't have been more nuts in 2007. why does this 'scene' always expect a new style to emerge every 20 minutes? why can't we just call it electro house and move on? wikipedia can. jesus.

First poster again, I enjoy Ed Banger's stuff a lot. I don't like Feadz and Uffie that much either.

Anyway, I don't give a fuck what's trendy and what not, if I would, I would be listening to crappy chart music, which I don't.

I'm still nervous about any track that's coming from justice and sebastian, because their beats are just awesome.

Oh and a word on revolte. Know them almost since they had their myspace page started now. STILL waiting for album and/or EP. They tracks are so out of this world good, I just can't get their management. I always say, they are Daft Punk starting with a new artist name, to see if they still have the power, to get to the top again.(of course that's probably not the case ;))

I thought revolte were a side project of a bigger name person.. maybe, happens all the time.

for example, fake blood is probably Touche

jesus used to be a big fan of broken social scene but then he heard the soulwax remix of standing in the way of control and decided to leave his old live behind move to france. he really helpt the french music scene gaining some popolatity all over again, claiming he was the former manager of daft punk, started a label and threw some ace partys in downtown paris. justice used his symbol on their album cover to represent their homie because of all he has done for them. he is still living there a still refuses to cut his hair.
