rather peculiar

Good evening, chaps and chapettes.

Avenge The Virgins is now officially 1 year old. What a strange ride it has been so far. Your support over the past year has been more than appreciated, and here's to a many other birthdays. Well, actually, now that I think about it...If in another year we haven't made any power moves, and thrown at least one show, I'm getting the fuck out of Dodge. Screw you guys.

All of the artists I'm posting about tonight have already been featured a few times on Avenge The Virgins, so dig into the archives for more of their great stuff. I ain't gonna spoon feed it to you.

Botnek- Ray Bans (Original Mix)

This is some damn fine high-powered bubbling house, with a Canadian twist. Botnek's productions are getting better by the minute, and one of their tunes was recently featured on Keith & Supabeatz's mix for Southern Fried Records.

I know I probably say this a lot, but...big tings, Botnek. Big tings indeed. Ray Bans is a surefire party anthem, people. Get familiar. Hit up their soundcloud for a few previews of their upcoming productions, which are sounding pretty awesome.


Foals- Blue Blood (Prince Club remix)

Do you guys remember our feature on Mad Kids? That talented MTL tech-house duo that is making huge waves in the house scene? Well, after their set at Piknic Electronik this summer opening for Riva Starr, they changed their name to Prince Club.

I, for one, welcome this change. (Plus their new logo is mondo rad). They hit us up today with a bit of info on their upcoming projects, and a few tunes, so we've decided to share one of them with you. They've still got that great groovy techy vibe, but the new productions almost seem more...cinematic/epic and john williams-y? I perhaps have no clue what I'm going on about, but this is some of the coolest tech house I've heard in quite a while.


Underworld- Always loved a film (Club Cheval club remix)

Club Cheval is, as we've gone over so many times before, made up of massively talented producers Myd, Canblaster, Panteros666 and Sam Tiba. If you claim that you love electronic music and that you love to party, then it is certain that you've either heard one of their tunes or heard their influence in some of your favorite artists' recent tunes.

This collective of somewhat unhinged Frenchmen masterfully blend a mix of frantic rave music with ethno-tribal rhythms, with dancehall, hip-hop and gabber thrown into the mix. I really dig their steez, mainly because it sounds refreshing and fun, I suppose. I'm pretty sure these guys will gain more notoriety/exposure as time goes on, but in the meantime, you should really drink the Kool-Aid. It's good for you.


Groove Theory- Tell Me (Brenmar House Mix)

Bynie and myself saw Brenmar throw it down with Kid Aloha & LOL Boys at Blizzarts two weeks ago, and his set was great. While I heard that the following night at Blue Dog Motel was a bit more intense, Brenmar's special blend of sexy r'n'b club remixes definitely hit the spot. Seeing him at Velvet would be really dope, to be honest, because his style of djing/production goes well with laid-back, intimate venues. Next generation baby-makin vibes.

I'd just need to tone down the drinking/smoking next time he comes back to Montreal, though haha. Twas one of those 'stare at the bar and grunt' nights, sadly. Still, good times were had by all....Oh, and this song's dope, by the way.


Bynie's got a huge Kill Halloween post lined up for you tomorrow afternoon. Keep your eyes peeled, kiddos.
