Ladies and Gents: Yelle

Yelle - Je Vuex Te Voir


Yes, anyways. Yelle (Myspace) has been tearing it up French style and while her album has been out for quite some time everywhere else in the planet, it's finally getting an American release on April 1st. She also has had her track "A Cause des Garçons" remixed by all sorts of folks (Riot In Belgium, Sta, Tepr). Speaking of Tepr...

Yelle - A Cause des Garçons (Tepr remix)

This song is a bit of a small history lesson too. First off, starting from recent history, this remix happens to be a lot of people's introduction to the (sigh) dance craze that is "Tecktonik." And the song itself is actually a cover of an older French song.

If you watch Yelle's original video for the song, you can see where they got the idea for all the imagery now. So, now you know. And you know me, if you're dancing, you might as well be learning something too!

And while we're at it, might as well mention that I've mashed up Yelle and one of my favorite Japanese house artists, Fredo!
