This damn kid isn't even old enough to get in the club, yet Stephane Deschenes obviously knows a thing or two about what it takes to move a dancefloor. We're told at the tender age of 16 he heard the Death From Above 1979 remix album, which led him to Justice, which led him to Boys Noize, which led him to DJing, which led him to the inevitable conquest of production. Enter Deschenes' Damn Kids moniker.
We've got our eye on this one. His big, tribal and tropical sound… with the right amount of low-end bass swagger treats us right. He released his first EP, "Yema" via Provoke in June, which got talent like AC Slater, Dave Nada, Pleasurekraft and DJ Craze to pay attention, which led the T&B camp to snap him up for his most recent release, "Govudoh" EP, which dropped on October 16th. You can pick up here and listen to it below. Raw EDM culture power.
Fiest "My Moon My Man" (Boys Noize Remix)
This is the song that initially got me into electronic music. My cousin showed it to me and the next day I bought Boys Noizes album.
Death From Above 1979 "Romantic Rights"
This is the song that got me addicted to bass. I heard it on the radio on the way too high school and Ive been a massive fan ever since.
Daft Punk "Rollin' & Scrathin'"
This is the song that made me really appreciate how effective the less is more approach is. Such a big record, and my favorite Daft Punk track hands down.
Jay-Z & Kanye West "Ni**as In Paris"
Kanye West is probably my favorite producer and rapper. Everything hes done has always blown me away, and when Throne dropped I lost my mind.
Nujabes & Uyama Hiroto "Waltz For Life Will Born"
This is my favorite song, and probably will be forever. It’s perfect in every way. Rip Nujabes.
