We’ve not heard from Parisian producer Janski Beeeats for ages, for those of you who can’t remember him he’s a designer and producer who is obsessed with 8-bit soundtracks and Japanese anime (I think you can see where this is going).
The only way we could describe him would be Danger’s arch enemy. He plays that cliched man behind the mask very well, especially with his amazing artwork, and it’s also pretty convenient he seemingly falls off the radar for ages to suddenly reappear with a new EP – much like a man living a double life.
His new EP is coming out at the end of the month and comes alongside an interactive video game, where you battle your way through various levels accompanied by the thumping electro driven soundtrack.
There’s a wealth of talent on-hand including the remix efforts of Ed Banger’s Krazy Baldhead, rising Belgium star Meridian, French disco house trio, WAEK and cult electro rock outfit, The Name and to round things off, Glitch-hop duo, MC2 lend their skills to ‘Dumbstep’.
Check out the minimix of the entire release and lookout for a release October 29 via Police Records.
