Gucci Soundsystem

 Gucci Soundsytem might be known to a lot of you as the guys that brought you the awesome remix of Tiefschwarz’s “Wait and See”.  This joint, “Acarpenter”, is a bit different.  Let’s call it minimal disco.  This record sounds like Moroder teamed up with (insert something stupid here) and made a record in this modern day and age. 

“Acarpenter” came out on “Bugged Out” in 2006, but James Murphy, of DFA and LCD Soundsystem fame, loved it so much he picked it up.  As a bonus, the new Joakim remix is included.  If you thought the original was dated from the start (in a good way), then wait until you hear this one.

[T]ekel is Parisian duo Julien Briffaz and Loic Le Guillou. My french is a bit rusty, but I believe that “tekel” must translate to wiener dogs because from a google image search I got multiple images like the following:

At any rate, [T]ekel been churning out some of the absolute best techno these past years. Their tracks have appeared on such releases as ex Black Strobe member Ivan Smagghe’s Fabric mix and a few of good ol’ electro champion Erol Alkan’s mixes as well. The dancefloor killer on this release is “Bezu Christ”. Check out the casio backbeat around 2:08. “(Envie De) Sauce Madere Avec Toi ” is more emotional and deep.

P.S. If someone could help me out with what “tekel” really means I would greatly appreciate that.
