Carbon Kevlar expand their horizons on new 'Ici & Higher' EP

Carbon Kevlar is a French electro duo haling from Paris, who joined forces to make music together in 2010 and were brought to light a year later by producing music for a famous French TV show. The main theme of the show, "Coco Shaker", quickly became a hit in France with the single reaching the first position of the French iTunes electro sales and, since then, over 700,000 views on Youtube.

They made themselves a name with over 130BPM heavy electro but seem to expand their musical universe with this new release. Titled Ici & Higher, this EP consists of 3 tracks, starting with "Lil' Death", a slow BPM - zombie movie, apocalypse like - electro anthem. The pression drops quite a bit with the seconds track, "Banshee", a - dirty lyrics - French rap recorded on a heavy trap beat. You'll lose half the fun if not understanding French but the groove's still there. The closing track "Woodsmashin'" starts with a - out the context - piano eventually being crushed to unleash a crazy electro beat.

Three very different tracks but equal in quality even if my personal preference goes to "Lil' Death".
