Nashville electro-punk outfit Five Knives are currently getting a lot of eyes on them, partly due to their stint on the current Vans Warped Tour. The Red Bull Records act also recognizes the importance of aligning themselves with clubbier sounds, and hence have enlisted acts like up-and-coming trapster Kennedy Jones to breathe new life into their tracks. Today, we’ve got the premiere of death-metal-turned-electronic act Big Chocolate’s instrumental take on their newest single Vive Le Roi, and it’s one of the quirkiest four-on-the-floor tracks in current circulation.
Big Chocolate’s remix of Vive Le Roi may fall under the “electro house” umbrella, but it’s far from the current norm in the genre, employing elements of fidget and techno to create a fascinating concoction of sounds. This is sure to get special attention in any electro set without seeming out of context–the key to a real hit. Catch both Big Chocolate and Five Knives on Warped Tour.
