Do you associate Vive La Fête with breakcore ? Probably not, but this might change that : VIVE LE MASH-UP ! Sickboy’s version of Nuit Blanche Sickboy has destructed and reaminmated the glamour of Vive La Fête to the full maximum : Speed-up, pitchbended and verbaly reschedualed.

The A-side “Viva El Party” stands for a ripped version on “Nuit Blanche” while side B “I Like To Sing Français (chainsaw harcore mix)” takes you even further away from what used to be romantic electropop.

New standards are set, breaks and darkness take over and pound their way into unsuspected formations. This special edition is in collaboration with an exclusive artwork poster by Dennis Tyfus and is limited to 750 copies, each indiviually numbered so be quick and start jumpin’!” It’ll be released on December 13th on the Lowlands label Surprise.
