Cassius x Ed Banger - The Rawkers E.P.

French house legends Cassius (Zdar and Boombass) and O.G. French house label Ed Banger Recs have finally united to bring you The Rawkers EP and as expected it is pure magic. Rawkers delivers five beautiful house tracks that are mixed to perfection. The other track on this six track EP is a slight departure from Cassius' house roots, the track I ♥ U So premiered on BBC Radio one a few weeks back. You can follow this link to check out a bad quality preview of Cassius' fun dubstep number I ♥ U So. The Rawkers E.P. drops October 4th on Vinyl and October 11th digital so you guys are getting a super secret preview of this fantastic release. Check out my favorite tracks off the EP in Transcoded (or compressed and lower quality) 320kbps and make sure you swing by iTunes and pre-order The Rawkers EP for digital download or here on for vinyl 12".

Additional Listening - Cassius truly are legends in the business of making music. Philippe Zdar alone has produced some of my favorite electro pop/rock albums like Phoenix's Grammy award wining Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix, Cut Copy's first album Bright Like Neon Love. More recently Zdar has worked on Chromeo's new album Business Casual. Check out one of my favorite track off that album "You Make It Rough" and pick up the whole album here on iTunes. Up next we have one from the vaults, going way back to 1992. Before Cassius was created and Boombass and Zdar colaborated under the name La Funk Mob, Zdar had a side project with another french house legend Etienne De Crécy. This colaboration was called MotorBass and they released 2 EPs and one LP. I highly recommend you check out some old school fantastic french house long before the days of Daft Punk.
