We first heard this track on French ElectroPop duo Reflex’s April mixtape. It’s their reMix of fellow Parisian Birkii and her tune Holy War (as featured on Kitsuné Parisien II). Birkii is a French ElectroPop singer who has had a couple of outings with Kitsuné now, gaining quite a bit of attention to those in the know with French Electro for a while now.
Reflex’s mix of Holy War is indicative of how amazing this duo really is. Pumping up the tempo a little and introducing one of their trademark bouncy synth basslines lets the track nicely build up to it’s choruses which layer retro synths thick. Birkii’s Parisian vocal twang in tandem with Reflex’s, upbeat feel good, Electro is a sweet combination that has a bit of a Yelle feel to it. Check out the original too below, we’ve been keeping an eye on both Birkii and Reflex for a while, maybe you should too.
