Redemption, Tontons and Bangin'

The other day I realized that Technocracy had never posted on The Toxic Avenger. The Toxic, is amazing, he is one of my favorite Parisian producers (saying a lot) and "Toxic Is Dead" is one of my favorite songs of all time (saying more). Then, today I realized that we had also never posted on Pance Party, the fantastic San Francisco duo who first blew my mind with their self titled EP and then again with the Kim Jong Thrill EP and are set to do it again with the Let's Get Invisible EP dropping on June 9th. Since The Toxic Avenger and Pance Party just released new remixes for the new track by Benny Benassi featuring Kelis and, some dude from the B. E. Peas, I thought it was time to end our dry-spell of these two (really 3 with Pance Party duo) producer/djs who like to bang!

If you are a SF resident than you should know that local boys Pance Party are playing a show at Club 8 with BPM. Then the very next night the one and only Toxic Avenger is playing in the Bay-yo at the Shoreline Amphitheater, all I can say is wow, what a weekend San Frandisco! If you are not lucky enough to live in the bay then console yourself with the Promos for the new Pance Party EP and this banger of a track from our boys Pance Party off there EP, Kim Jong Trill, a must have buy here.

Bonus: Tontons
In case we are the only blog you read or you read bad blogs that haven't yet talked about this glorious EP, Tonton Funk is Teenage Bad Girl's new single. Teenage Bad Girl is another Parisian duo made up of producers Guillaume Manbell and Greg Kazubski. There debut LP Cocotte was one of the best and most underrated albums of 2007, which is a massive statement when you consider Justice, Boys Noize, Crystal Castles, Simian Mobile Disco, Digitalism and Soulwax Nite Versions as well as a slew of other great electronic artist all dropped debut albums in 2007; in fact, I still refer to 2007 as the "Golden Age of New Electro". Out of this golden age, or at least stream of consistently great albums, Teenage Bad Girl was the first (of the above list of artist) drop a fantastic album and to introduce me to Ed Banger and Boys Noize. Clearly I have much too much love for Teenage Bad Girl. Check out remix of Tonton Funk by The Toxic Avenger and Les Petits Pilous which are absolute bangers and pray that Teenage Bad Girl drops a new LP some time soon.
