I went through another French phase again this time last year, much like the one I had 8 years ago when the world was going mad to Stardust, Cassius, Daft Punk and Roule Records. Obviously over the last two years the world has gone mad for Ed Banger's Justice and all the surrounding hype, which i think kinda' overshadowed some other great surrender monkey music. Like these guys for instance: TTC You may have heard of members Teki Latex and Para One from their own productions, or been lucky enough to have witnessed their show in The Village and impromptu DJ set in the Sth William last year. If not here is a taster of the cheese eaters in action.
