New Release, Free Track and Free Mix - MC2 - Beat Em Up


Crashing through your bass bins like a ferocious Electro, Glitch-Step, Daft Punk Symphony are French production duo MC2 and they're bringing a free track, mix and wicked 3 tune EP with them, duck and cover!

Hailing from Marseille, France, MC2 is an up and coming Glitch-Hop duet. Playing live with controllers joysticks and pads, they could easily be seen as a proper Rock band. Their music is a blend of Glitch-Hop, Dubstep, IDM and discrete yet strong Mediterranean influences.



Miosine and Ckel started making music together back in 2008 and quickly released remixes for the likes of Missil, Tambour Battant and Nasser on labels such as Boxon, Leonizer and Discograph. In 2011 they released their first EP on Marseilles imprint I.O.T, "Mcs Slicing".

MC2 soon joined the Ch√Ęteau Bruyant Team alongside Tambour Battant, Niveau Zero, The Unik and Habstrakt and are ready and able to launch some new glitch bombs as well as performing furious live sets.

Storming into 2012 with a gargantuan EP, combining Dubstep, Glitch-Hop, sexy and lush French filtered orchestral, and cut up Electro, MC2 are hitting you hard with three big tunas.

"Beat Em Up's" intro is Electro P Funk synth heaven, crashing into heavily distorted bass cut up with programmed beats and computer game parps and whizzes.

"Feel Roll Ins" is a ferocious Dubstep judderer with fierce chops and razor sharp drums and sampling, Daft Punk on steroids!

"Computer Slave" is straight up Glitch-Hop with all kinds of funk in the trunk and one bad ass attitude! Sprinkling in delicate bleeps and a kind of 80's cop show film score drop, MC2 will have everyone's hands in the air with this one!
