SXSW 2012 Preview: BeatauCue

Today we head to France to check out electronic-duo BeatauCue. Hailing from the Normandy country-side these two have made their mark on the European dance scene with high profile remixes by the likes of Major Lazer, Two Door Cinema Club, and Kylie Minogue. From what I can tell, their latest release is a single called, Kiho, which can be found on Spotify, Soundcloud, Beatport and their official YouTube channel. As you probably know, electronic music tends to be less album-oriented and more singles-oriented so, it doesn't look like BeatauCue has a full-length debut LP yet. Although, most of the information I have found is in French so I MIGHT be wrong about that. Regardless, all of the remixes and singles I've found have been really fantastic so I'm happy to listen to those for now. Just click the Spotify and Soundcloud links above and you'll find all kinds of great music to shake your ass to.

For their official SXSW showcase, you'll find BeatauCue playing at Malverde, Friday March 16th. As of right now, there is no official time listed for when they'll begin but you can bet your ass it's going to be a hell of a dance-party if it's going down at Malverde.

Unofficially, I haven't seen anything listed for BeatauCue yet but that doesn't really mean anything. You don't fly to Austin from France to play a 45 minute set at Malverde so keep an eye on Show List Austin, Do512 and SXShhh if you want to be sure to catch them while they're here in Austin.
