Teenage Bad Girl
How to survive to the French Touch 2.0 after being one of its biggest hits? The French (and masculine) duo Teenage Bad Girl, about to release its second album, could serve as case study to the young electro generation.
In 2007 the duo released “Cocotte” on Citizen (a label they share with Vitalic, to name just them); an album in which they blend the punk spirit from their musical debut in rock & roll bands with the broken rhythm of underground hip-hop and the efficiency of a half French Touch half Detroit old school techno.
Today they are back with a new EP “Tonton Funk”, which features the original 90’s techno style version, a remix from Les Petits Pilous, our friends from BNR, Toxic Avenger back from California and Franz & Shape, the amazing new Italian duo you should follow!
But they are also finishing working on a brand new album for which they’ve opted for a more simplistic and open approach, carried by robotic vocals from Greg Kazyo, Rye Rye, Todd Fink (former singer of The Faint) as well as Illa J. from Slum Village (J Dilla’s brother).
The ambitious duo is actively touring in dj sets as well as with their new live act & scenography, based on laser technology created in collaboration with French collective Digital Slaves, that should hit a major festival near you soon!
