10 Jun

Adidas has gone all out with their new advertising campaign for a Star Wars collection of clothing and footwear.  Using re-imaged scenes from original Star Wars movies, with the titanic French electro duo, Daft Punk, as well as David Beckham, Noel Gallagher, Snoop Dogg, Franz Beckenbaur, Ian Brown, DJ Neil Armstrong, Ciara, Calle 13, Jay Baruchel and others.

We know that adverts leading into the world cup are always great, but this one goes one further including Daft Punk. Enjoy.

Beataucue Tour Dates Confirmed

8 Jun

Kitsune label  techno 2 piece, Beataucue, have confirmed their Australian tour dates before leaving back to Europe, to promote the release of their first EP, Cha Cha Cha. Featuring a sound similar to that of Boys Noize, Surkin or Yuksek, Beataucue are a typically talented French electro duo, and thus, it’s reasonable to assume that you won’t regret making the effort to go out and see them despite the fact that they are still relatively unknown.
