YOU MAN ~ BIRDCAGE [2⊘13]

“Hold up, this is not my thang…”

“This is the new project of Giac and Tepat. From Trance to Hip-Hop, from Techno to Breakbeat, from House to Eternity, from Love to Dance; From Lille, France.” [music.metason.net]

“Back around the turn of the millennium Tepat Huleux and Giac Di Falco, lured by dazzlingly eclectic sets by the likes of The Glimmers and 2manyDJs, would sneak out of their Lille homes, cross the Belgian border, and dance all night at the legendary parties that birthed Eskimo Recordings. 20 years later the pair, now known as You Man, make their debut on the label with the stunning 4-track ‘Altered States’ EP.”

This music is tired…”

“Those early club experiences obviously made an impact as the pair have followed that open-minded approach with their new EP embracing everything from dark disco to muscular EBM, euphoric trance to Konnakol, a percussive vocal effect used in Southern Indian Carnatic music, and even Di Falco’s background as a trained psychologist and hypnotherapist. The result (is) a mesmerizing experience primed to both open and expand minds on the dancefloor.”

“I’m sorry, you gon’ have to play something else…”

“With releases on labels such as Tronik Youth’s NEIN, their stunning live shows and hypnotic visuals created by Huleux, the pair have firmly established themselves on the underground disco scene, their eclectic tastes and esoteric interests combining to create a distinctive sound that is sure to win over even more hearts and minds.”

Let me go talk to the DJ…”

“Well, I’m outta here…”
