Keadz (not to be mistaken with Keedz) are Elie Dahan, Antoine Couzinet and Théo Fernandez. They are Parisian masterminds when it comes to smooth, sexy disco electro.  Their EP Château Jeanne (Freedom Records) is a mixture of summery happiness, guitar riffs and synthy dreams.

Prior to the release of their EP, they released a mixtape that got everyone a little wet,  En bicyclette on la moon Mixtape, which featured tracks from Jupiter, Eumig & Chinon, and our surrogate son-in-law Kido Yoji. Generally if someone has great taste in music, they’re already half way to making music that will please, and I think that’s the case here.

Château Jeanne features 3 original tracks. The first time I played ‘Le Desir’, my boyfriend thought I was watching porn, so it’s safe to say, the beginning of this track is pretty sexy. It drops into a summery tune, which bleeds happiness all over your sullen face. It’s upbeat, French and all round a good track

Looney is more laidback and a more mellow track than Le Desir. It’s a nice, simple track that surprises with a great lead at the second half of the track which makes it tres danceable. I think this track is screaming to get remixed. Pipouw Sunlight is the stand out track, with a synthy melody, vocals and everything gooey and delicious that make the French musically enviable.

As great as the originals are, I’m a sucker for a good remix and this EP isn’t short of them. Kido Yoji’s remix of Le Desir is my favourite track of the entire EP. It screams happiness, and adds that extra skip in an already great track. His sound is reminscient of Breakbot at his best, in it’s whimsical essence. Also, if you are not already aware, Kido can make a lickable lead. Trust me.  Other remixes are from Laberge (think dancier), Jean Tonique (think Piano) and Excellior (think spring times with a hot girl).

All in all, this is a great EP with an amazing list of remixes. I can’t wait to see what Keadz do in the future.

My rating: ★★★½
