The French are pushing some of the best music these days.
With that said, I was VERY disappointed in the attendance for Birdy Nam Nam’s set at Coachella this year. Perhaps, because they were in the 1:40pm time slot on the second day while Coachella babies were nursing their dignity that they lost during the day before? Who knows.
What I do know is that Birdy Nam Nam is a four-piece electronic DJ crew from Paris, France that is mostly known for their live turntable sets. Throughout their well-accomplished career they have won multiple awards that include the DMC Technics 2002 World TEAM Championships. Their album that got me hooked was the most recent Defient Order EP, which was released on Skillex’s OWSLA label at the beginning of 2013. Also worth noting is they were involved with producing the banging A$AP Rocky track “Wild For The Night.”
The subject track, “Defiant Order,” starts off with a very prominent bass line that eventually gets layered with some super grungy electronic loops. It’s one of those tracks that infiltrates through your ear drums and into your body, and gets you groovin’.
By the way, also check out the Breakbot remix of “Defiant Order” — it’s amazing. Honestly, I was having a hard time not posting the remix over the original. But I’ll leave it up to you to decide which is better.
