023 – French & German Electronica

Posted: October 25, 2011 in Electronic Music

Gudrun Gut, one of Berlin’s most famous protagonists of live electronic music not only creates some very fine original music but also runs a fantastic label ‘Monika Enterprise’ (named after a dead goldfish).
The website says “under construction” but click on the front page & there is a whole bunch of interesting facts and cool pics to check out.
Here is the video for ‘Die Sonne’ (The Sun) featuring Blixa Bargeld from the legendery German group Einstürzende Neubauten.

Kavinsky & Lovefoxxx feature on the 2011 soundtrack for Nicolas Winding Refn’s “Drive” with this amazing track ‘Nightcall’.

Lovefoxx can usually be found fronting Brazillian band CSS & Kavinsky is a French artist most commonly associated it electro house & the label Record Makers. This is the same label as Sebastien Tellier…they are also responsible for the release of John Carpenter’s ‘Assault on Precinct 13’ score & Air’s soundtrack for the Sofia Coppola movie ‘The Virgin Suicides’, so definately worth checking out more of their catalogue.

Whilst researching bands and artists for this entry I also discoverd:
Emily Loizeau and ger version of the Eurythmics classic Sweet Dreams…cehck it out @

Sacre Noir News
Last Saturday (22/10/11) Alexis & I played at The Cruz bar in Leith… a very special (rarley seen & un-masked) acoustic set, plus an electro set with new tunes. Lovely place, nice staff & the punters were great too. We’re back there for the Frantic Chant album launch at the start of November – watch this space for more details.

Next Saturday (29/10/11) we’ll be taking to the stage @ Henry’s Cellar Bar, Morrison St, Edinburgh as part of a Bainbridge Music event. Also on the bill that night are; Collar Up (alt. folk) & DefCon One (Rock/Pop) so should be an excellent night.

Then we’re off on the road again at the end of November:
London – The Vibe Bar – Monday 28th November
Paris – Belushi’s (Club) – Tuesday 29th November
Berlin – Goldman’s Bar – Thursday 1st December
Edinburgh – Henry’s (with the Savage Sound System) – Thursday 8th December.
